Take it Easy Tuesday

Today I spent the day at home which I needed as my sinuses are retaliating against the weather we’ve been having here! I’ve been sleeping a lot which is my number one indicator that I’m not feeling well (I’m not a big napper). This is clear indicator that there is no working out happening today.

While home, I tried to work on a few items I needed to take care of (that I could do while sitting on the couch) for Jazzercise. I’m hosting the annual Welcome Back party for all of the customers this Saturday where after class I provide as a thank for you for staying with Jazzercise breakfast items, including mimosas, fruit, breakfast sandwiches and bagels from¬†Bethesda Bagels.

Love is Around Each and Every Day

I am so happy to be sitting on my couch while the snow is falling outside, eating my very quick take on Breakfast Enchiladas (corn tortillas with eggs and cheese on top):

The trick to keep the shape is to fill the tortilla and roll them over so they don’t break from the weight of the eggs and stay in the shape of the enchilada. I love cheese so I added some to the eggs and sprinkled the rest on top to make it look just like enchiladas without the heavy sauce.

Okay weekend recap!

I apologize for the hiatus..

and for my very long post which is brought to you while riding the very unpredictable metro train. Work and life have gotten busy! These last few days have been a perfect example of me needing to schedule out time to be able to blog. 

What’s happened since I last posted? Well the Super Bowl has come and gone, which I dedicated my set to with all of the artists being only those who performed at the Half Time show. Here it is:

   

   
It was such a fun set! For the actual Super Bowl Santosh and I went to a Super Bowl party and I made sweet potato hush puppies pictured here:

  
The recipe was modified from a recipe found on FitMenCook. I used:

  • 7 sweet potatoes
  • 1 tub of crumbled goat cheese 
  • 1 red onion 
  • 4 egg whites 
  • 1 box of Panko breadcrumbs 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 

The key is to bake the sweet potatoes first in the oven for 40-45 minutes at 400 degrees. Let them cool. Mash them up and add the onions and cheese. Roll them into small balls and dip them into the egg whites and Panko. Place them onto a cookie sheet. Place them in the oven for 30 minutes. They were a huge hit! 

Work has been really busy and when I get home at night I honestly don’t want to touch a computer to blog but I will be better about this as I can post from my phone (case and point right now!) 

Until tomorrow ūüôā 

When in Doubt, Blog it on the Metro

The last few days have been been busy and i fall asleep each night realizing I haven’t posted. That’s a resolution I’m going to work on changing. But today’s post is brought to you courtesy of the daily delays of WMATA.

Monday I went to yoga with my one of my best girlfriends at Epic Yoga¬†located in DuPont Circle and then we got lunch at Jose Andres’ new place¬†Beef Steak¬†which was quite good and reasonably healthy. Monday night I had a seminar with Santosh and didn’t get home until 11, but despite the time still put chili in the crockpot, which turned out to be quite good!

Tuesday (aside from being only 12 degrees when I left for work) was really busy! I hit my 10,0000 steps even before I got to class to teach. Metro caused me to be about 15 minutes late to class but my customers waited and we were able to do the cardio portion of the class before we had to leave. This was the cardio portion of my (which helped me burn about 500 calories!):

Teaching Jazzercise

IMG_5086

I have been a Jazzercise Instructor for 2 and half years, which I love! ¬†Jazzercise¬†has been around since 1969 and is a total full body workout in an hour (on average I burn 600-800 calories when I teach and when I take class) that is¬†a high intensity dance party that fuses cardio, strength, Pilates, hip hop, yoga and kickboxing.¬†Since I became an instructor, I’ve lost 20 pounds and gained a whole new community of friends. I really enjoy the routines and the music is awesome! Continue reading
