It’s been a lazy – but active – Sunday for sure!!
I spent the morning learning this dance route by Nappy Tabs!! They’re famous on So You Think You Can Dance and in honor of National Dance Day they choreographed a routine for folks all over to learn. I’ve done a lot of jazz, but I haven’t done any hip hop so this was really fun to learn!!
When I first started out, I couldn’t keep up and was so lost because they’re teaching it mirror from you. But I stuck to it for about 30 minutes and I got it!! So much fun! I’m going to keep practicing!
After getting all warmed up dancin’, I met my dance teacher Faith at the Monticello Trail for a hard run! We did 2ish miles up to Monticello – ALL UPHILL! I didn’t wear my Garmin so I don’t know our speed, but we killed it!! Talking to. I was out of breath, but it was all good.
Back at home I practiced my dance a bit more and then dug into this nutritious lunch!
At my talks to the Slimdown class I told them all about sardines and how easy and healthy they are for you. I decided to practice what I preach and made a sardine salad for lunch. It was actually Trader Joe’s Smoked Herring (which is my favorite) plus carrot, pepper, tomato, mustard, mayo and salt + pepper. Served over garden greens with olive oil, honey and salt with pretzels on the side!!
Somebody came over for a visit and went CRAZY for my herring!!
He was jumping up, sniffing – going crazy!! I caved and gave him a tiny taste on a silver spoon.
Iced minty tea
Dessert! Who needs a bowl.
After lunch, Matt and I went to check out an open house in Belmont. Did you know I’m house obsessed and have been since I was little? I love looking at open houses, as my family used to go to them for entertainment when we were at the beach.
This house was SO charming and fun, but only had 2 bedrooms. I hope we can buy one sometime soon!
A few hours later – and probably due to so much activity! (the bike ride a long one) I was getting very hungry again.
It seemed like a good time to try Krissy’s Butterbeer Cupcakes!!
If Butterbeer were poured into a cupcake, this would be it. It was fabulous!!
And to balance my carbs with some protein, a small bowl of plain yogurt on the side.
Tonight – it’s out to dinner again. Karen invited us to restaurant week ages ago (before we had such a busy schedule) so it’s now or never. This girl’s sticking to sparkling water tonight!
