Happy Weekend, My Loves!

Where do I even begin on the past few days…I have some good pictures of my food, ha, and an incredible Zumba class to share with/update all of you. Ok Zumba first 😉

Last night’s Zumba® Master Class rocked my world. It was such an amazing time and I can’t thank you enough to Shaira & Costa for letting me be apart of their event. {And Elite Night Club in Stamford, CT} They were the two Instructors running the class, and asked me to teach 3 routines at their event. I was honored and flattered! Shaira teaches at LA Fitness in Stamford on Sunday’s, and I do the Saturday class, so we got to see more of each others’ students (although, we do have a lot of overlap and a lot of people take my class Saturday and her’s on Sunday). It was also nice that a lot my Norwalk students from LA as well as Step N Out Dance Studios came to support all of us. One of my bestest friends from growing up, Stacey, and my cousin Dawn, also came to support me. I can’t thank all of you enough!

The pictures don’t even do it justice!

Look at this crowd! So-much-fun..zumba in a night club? say whaaat?!

Obviously, words can’t even describe how fun and energetic this event was. Three routines I decided to do were:

1. Los Campeones De La Salsa

2. Bumpy Ride

3. La Gota Fria

My three songs to fame… ha ha.

NOW… on to some yummy eats 🙂 

Yesterday I made sure to make a good protein shake to try to keep myself fueled all day long.

Almond milk, vanilla whey protein, almond extract, cocoa powder, PB flour, and cinnamon.. perfect start to my Friday!

I recently bought Trader Joe’s Oat Bran again and had that breakfast when I got to work. Forgot how much I love it TJ’s..watch out Bob’s Red Mill….

Oat Bran, Plain Chobani, TJ’s unsalted crunchy PB, chia seeds, and blueberries

Never sick of this. True story. It’s so thick and filling and I totally look forward to this on a daily basis. I have to say, breakfast is by far my most favorite meal of the day. I can eat breakfast foods all-day-long.

Rest of the day was carb loading for the intense Master Class. Might have had a few drinks after, too 😉

Now it’s Saturday and I actually taught my own Zumba class again this morning. I am one tired chica! I recently purchased a box of chocolate vitatops, and thought they would be perfect to pair with greek yogurt as a pre-Zumba meal.

This morning I did just that – Chocolate Vitatop, plain greek yogurt, cocoa & peanut flour mixed with SF maple syrup to make a “frosting”, cinnamon and Truvia, and some wheat puffs all mixed in. This picture definitely looks weird but it was really good. I felt like I was eating a decadent dessert from a restaurant.

Totally half-eaten by the time I remembered to take a picture

So that pretty much wraps up an entirely related Zumba post, regarding classes and some eats. Friday night and this morning was so Zumba consumed I can’t think of anything else to blow up this blog with. Take away’s from this post: I love breakfast foods. I can eat them all day long. It’s also the only foods/meals of the day I remember to photograph.

After Zumba this morning I stopped at Starbucks to get a WHOLE MILK iced-coffee. Plans with some great friends today, which will include lots of snacks, good food, and some drinks.. Guinness has just been purchased 🙂

Absolutely exhausted after a 90 min class last night and 60 minutes this AM. Proof is in the pudding, baby..trying to keep my game face on for rest of weekend

What is everyone up to this weekend?

Questions of the day:

– Anyone else love breakfast foods as much as I do? Can you eat them all day long? 

– Anyone ever taken a Master Zumba Class before? How was it?!!!
