At some point in the not too distant past, LUNA was giving away free samples of their new flavors. You got either Chocolate Chunk or Chocolate Dipped Coconut, but they sent whatever their little hearts desired.
First, I have to admit, I kind of forgot I signed up for this, so when a box from LUNA came last week, I was pleasantly surprised. Second, I was really hoping for the Chocolate Chunk. I am not a huge coconut fan. So, when the Chocolate Dipped Coconut was in the box, I was a bit disappointed.
Nonetheless, I gave it a shot for my pre-gym snack. It was better than I was expecting, for sure, but I’ll stick with the Lemon Zest (love!). If you’re a coconut fan, I’d say it’s worth giving a shot!
gym it up.
I was really excited to get back to working out! I started out with my new routine of a pre-Zumba mile and my legs were crazy tight!! I ended up going 1.5 miles in 15:11 (10:07 pace). I walked a minute or so near the end when I heard something in my leg pop (never a sound you want to hear!) but once I realized I was okay, I ran out the rest of it.
And Zumba…I don’t think I’ve ever had as much fun at the class as I did tonight!! It was so fun! We did a couple new songs (Hold It Against Me by Britney and Forget You from Glee). I’m pretty sure that using Top 40 stuff like that makes it not technically an “official” Zumba class but I love when we do songs like that! I find it so much easier to dance to and it’s fun to have songs I know and love!
I wanted one thing, and one thing only, when I left the gym: a green monster! I got to blending almost as soon as I walked in the door!
My bigger than anticipated bowl contained: a cup of frozen berries, a banana, a scoop of vanilla SunWarrior, a LOT of spinach, and a cup of almond milk. It wasn’t blending too well, so I added in 1/2 cup of water to get things going! All topped with 1/4 cup vanilla almond granola!
It was so delish, but made more than I could eat! It’s filling stuff, I tell ya!
What’s been the highlight of your day? “Warm” temperatures (said when high 20s is feeling warm, no?), great Zumba class, registering for my first marathon (!!!) are just some of mine. And, thanks to everyone for their great support and comments about registering! Y’all are the best!
