So we had alot of rain... Alot! By 3pm things settled down and we ended up going to an early dinner at Chili's with my family. I had a cobb salad minus cheese with balsamic dressing. I did have a celebetory margarita with sister inlaw. It was my sister inlaws birthday. So now at 7pm it is still raining but just a bit. We didn't lose power but friends of ours did. Over all it wasn't too bad where we are. We are watching a movie now. The wedding was wonderful last night. Two young great people uniting for life :). Ahhhh... youth! They are a great couple and we were happy to be a part of the celebration. The dj wasn't great but there was about one and a half hours of good dancing music. We danced alot. Alot of calories burned. I ordered salmon for dinner with a few asparagus. I only had a few appetizers. Pretty healthy ones too. I had a small slice of cake and a yummy cupcake! I only drank chardoney. It was great to have Joe's family together for something nice and fancy. We took some great pix and if I can I will download some. My dress fit well and I felt very pretty and healthy. I didn't drink too much because I wanted to be able to really enjoy the dancing. We didn't get home until 1:30am! So we slept in until 10am. Then stayed in bed and had some coffee until 11am. We hung out on the couch and napped on and off until time to meet the family. It's been a good day. I hope my east coast friends are safe. Have a good night.

East Coast Peeps ...lets be safe!

Saturday, August 27, 2011

Watching the news this morning in Upstate New York and Yikes! Scarey stuff! We have a wedding tonight and then we are prepared to hunker down and watch the tropical effects hit us. I am praying for everyone on this coast. It's unbelieveable! Please take all the necessary precautions! We are moving all of our patio furniture and bought water bottles and charging anything I can get my hands on. We will be filling our cars with gas and putting them in the garage if we can get them both in. We have candles and flashlights. Canned goods and lots of peanut butter and fluff :). We were supposed to go to the track tomorrow for an after wedding brunch with family. I'm thinking that won't be happening. It's a good thing I've missed the desserts lately because yum yum! Last night there were plates of desserts put on our table :). I ate half a mini cannoli, a bite of chocolate cake and a tiny peice of cheesecake. So I did indulge but really restrained myself. I did have a pomegranite martini. Full of sugar but yummy. Dinner was chicken with shrimp, mushrooms in a white wine garlic sauce. So it was great and I could've been much worse. I will practice my routine for an hour this morning and dance my a** off tonight at the wedding :). I had an awesome mani/pedi yesterday. Ahhhhh... Wonderful. So.... be safe. I hope all will go better than anticipated.

Hooooooo! :) I am still on cloud 9 since my awesome amazing Zumba class last night. That is my rockin, bring it, people want to dance the butts off class. I did four songs and nailed them!!!!! Nailed them!!!! I had students who come up to me after class to actually tell me that I brought it! Thats right brought it!!!! One even said I was better to follow than the instructor, who is the director of classes! Yeah! Wow! So psyched! I'm taking a break from Zumba today. I need a rest and I deserve it! Food was amazing yesterday. Ham and tomatoe omlette for breakfast. Almonds for snack. Cobb salad minus cheese for lunch. Greek yogurt and baked chicken for dinner. I know it sounds weird threw together what I had in the fridge. I didn't eat until after class. No dessert again! I don't know why but I'll take any night I don't need dessert :). Plus the wedding tomorrow night will have plenty of treats :). I'm concerned about this hurricane. We are in Upstate New York but those winds are still supposed to get to 70 miles per hour! Have an amazing day my friends!

Good Morning!

So yesterday's class was a bummer... She only asked me to do one song and at the end when she announced that next week would be her last week she didn't even say anything about me taking over. Also, a few women stayed after to talk to her...I was waiting to and to say the least they didn't seem very happy with me. Right before I left one did say that they are very territorial about their instructors and if she had to be replaced at least it was one of their own. Hmmmm.... I guess I'll take that. On the up side... One of the students who wanted flyers for my other class told me she gave 18 flyers out the night before :)! Another student said she came especially to support me :). It's funny how I can get so many positive comments and one bad one will bring me right down. Oh well...I went home took a shower and met Joe for lunch. After that I was feeling better. Adam met Joe and some of his Joe's friends at Bruegger's. I met mom for coffee again and it was so windy I felt like I was at the beach....Ahhhh...the beach.... the hurricane effect are already being felt here. We will see what the weekend brings us. Food was awesome... Greek yogurt for breakfast. Burrito bowl with lowfat pulled pork, salsa and lettuce for lunch. Almonds for snack. stir fry chicken teriyaki with broccoli for dinner. We went to see Fright Night last night. Fun! It was in 3D.... Not a fan. The movie was great but the effects were distracting. I'll be happy to see it on ondemand later without the 3D. I will go out and put some flyers around. I will practice my routine this morning. The boys are going to the movies tonight with the cast of 13. Have a great day!

    You can't please all of the people all of the time. There's negative people out there. Don't let that bring you down! You're doing a great job and people will get used to you. Just think if you ever decide to move on to something else they'll miss you too!

    You need to get a physical representation of your good and bad comments - if they were quarters, you would have enough to buy a bottle of water with the good comments!! I'll bet you become a really popular instructor and any of the bad comments will be forgotten!

Good morning Peeps!

The only shopping on got in yesturday was at Target...I swear I live there :). I did meet my mom for coffee. We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful day. I did three songs in my class yesterday and was exhausted. I'm going to chalk it up to the time of the month. I did work on my routine last night and that was successful. Food was awesome...Greek yogurt for breakfast, burrito bowl with low fat pulled pork, salsa and lettuce for lunch. Baked teryaki chicken with broccoli for dinner. I didn't even have a treat watching Glee! That is definitely not a usual so I'll enjoy a night without sweets when I can get it :). I'm getting excited about the wedding this weekend! It will be nice to get all gussied up and dance and feel very pretty for hubby :) . I have a class this morning. I'm working on getting things back into the storage room of the basement now that the carpet is in. The house is definitely feeling more put together. Thank God! I'm feeling more like myself. Yay! Mike mentioned at lunch yesterday that he is amazed at how far I've come since last November. He is happy for me. I am amazed as well. Life is good today. Thanks again to all my Spark Peeps who have carried me through this year. I know I'll need you again but what you've guided me through can never be repaid. I will pray for wonderful things for you all and keep you dear to my heart always. Have a great day my very special friends!
