I am sooooo glad the treadmill was broken the other day because I had an AWESOME time dancing out my stress! I did the hip hop and cha cha sections of the So You Think You Can Dance Get Fit: Tone and Groove DVD. (Phew! Could they come up with a longer name?? Geez.)
The hip-hop dance is really fun, and it got my heart pumpin’ at the end when we (the SYTYCDancers and I) did the combo four times in a row. I’m STILL feeling it in my lower back today, so obviously I worked some muscles I haven’t worked in a while.
Regarding the broken treadmill in my gym, remember when I wrote that “it pays to be nice even when you don’t wanna be”? Someone from the main office of my apartment complex called me the next morning to tell me the treadmill was not going to be fixed. Rather, it’s been replaced! With a newer model!!!! I haven’t used it yet, but I plan on hittin’ it up this weekend.
On a completely unrelated note, I’ve written before about making black bean chili, but I’ve tweaked my recipe yet again and came up with something pretty darn tasty tonight.
I’ve added some more veggies and spices, which made it better than ever!!!! Want the improved recipe? You’ll be able to find it in Jen’s PriorFatGirl E-Cookbook when it’s complete :)
Something must have gotten into me because I’m also making totally-from-scratch guacamole for the first time in my life tomorrow! Liz and Cody are hosting a belated birthday get-together for me, and I can’t show up empty handed. (And guac is AMAZING!) I’ll share the recipe and results afterward. Let’s get real here: I don’t usually make stuff at all … but I’d like to. Maybe this will turn into a pattern? We’ll see.
Happy face!!!!!! I’m in a really great mood right now!!! I think it’s due to the pride in my recent cooking victory, tomorrow being Friday (woot woot!), eagerness to see friends (and have some drinkies) tomorrow evening, excitement for chips and guac, my breakfast date with Jen on Saturday …. and this:
I’m giving away either a two-year subscription to Shape or (because I know there are a handful of male readers out there) a one-year subscription to Men’s Health!
And, yes you read that correctly: TWO WHOLE YEARS OF SHAPE-NESS! One year of Men's Health ain't too shabby either. The winner is free to choose which one he or she wants.
