ABSolutely going to be sore

Hips Abs Butt Intense Thighs (HABIT) class killed me tonight. The teacher set up different exercises than we did last week and they were great and effective ab exercises. We focused more on obliques tonight using hand weights and the step. I am going to be hurting over the next couple of days!

After dinner, Craig and I also went on a walk around the neighborhood. It was a shorter walk because the weather turned suddenly cool and windy.

I have been distracted by etsy for the last half hour. You see, I am not the quickest decision maker when it comes to pretty things from etsy. I have been trying to pick out the best coupon organizer for weeks now. I secretly keep hoping someone will pop up with an Amy Butler fabric coupon organizer. Have you seen her fabrics? They are beautiful!

It’s already getting late here…so a quick post will follow with my eats.

Gotta go, it’s way too late now and I have to get my clothes ready for yoga at work tomorrow. Night!


Foodie TV shows

Happy Saturday! I am just lounging, watching America’s Test Kitchen first and now Cook’s Country. I get excited when I can catch those two TV shows on the weekend.

I also got pumped up last night when we saw a commercial for Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution.

It starts on Tuesday, April 12th at 7 p.m. central time. I don’t watch a lot of TV, but when I do, it’s usually about food, fitness or travel, which are my favorite things at this point in my life. I also like HGTV at the gym. Can’t wait to see what Jamie’s up to now and the positive changes he will make in peoples’ lives.

This morning, I got up somewhat early to head to yoga at 8:45. Class was great. I was sweating and my hips were really hurting in some of the poses. I find that through yoga, I have discovered the weak areas of my body–my core and now my hips. It used to be my ankles and balancing on them, but with yoga and weightlifting, that has improved significantly.

I wore my Lululemon Speed Up tank for yoga and it was perfect! It didn’t creep up into my stomach (because it’s long) and it was comfortable. I was worried about the zipper on the back of tank bugging me because the girl at the outlet warned me it might not be good for yoga, but it didn’t bother me at all.

After an hour of yoga, I biked for 16 minutes while reading Health magazine. I also lifted some weights.

In the March issue of Health, they mentioned taking a quiz to see how old you would live to. I took it (couldn’t find it online, so check out March 2011’s Health) and got 91. I took one this week through the Northwestern Mutual Insurance site and found that I will live until 99. Craig’s said he would live until 83. I think it’s because he needs to eat veggies, fruits and exercise more. Take it and leave a comment with the age you get. I think it’s great so you can a) learn to make better choices in your life b) save more money in your 401K and plan properly.

Before yoga, I had a waffle, blueberry Chobani and coffee for breakfast.

Once home, I snacked on some peanut butter m&m’s.

And made a chocolate banana protein smoothie using cocoa powder, a bit of brown sugar, protein powder, frozen bananas and skim milk.

I need to get ready to leave the house so I can go to TJ Maxx and Pick N’ Save for a bit of grocery shopping on double coupon day.

Tonight, my sister-in-law is supposed to come over so I can help her do a mock job interview. She has an interview this week and this should help her prepare for it.

Have a lovely Saturday!
