Friday Randoms

Hiiii friends!

Friday Randoms {take 2}

1. I survived my first night of teaching while someone else other than Jared watched baby Lily.

I was so so nervous. You see, because babies can be a bit hard to read in the evening, if ya know what I mean….

As in sometimes they seem crabby for no reason.

So I feel less bad if it’s Jared dealing with it, but he couldn’t be there, so our friends it was.

And she did pretty well. Wahoo!

2. Jared’s school schedule for a few weeks SUCCCCKKKKS.

I am just going to complain for a moment.

He is gone from about 6:50 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. mon-thur


Luckily it’s for only a few weeks, but stilllll. It’s going to be a long few weeks.

Oh and because of his crappy schedule, that’s why we need our friends to watch Lily so I can go teach.

3. But because of this, I made the decision to drop my Wed evening class.

That was SUCH a hard choice. I love that class. I love teaching. I love teaching BodyPUMP.

But I love my family & time with Lily more. And I couldn’t justify leaving Lily 2 nights in a row (plus the 2 mornings already) with someone else.

So the decision was made, and I dropped the class.

I might have cried on Wednesday night during the time I was supposed to be teaching…..

She is worth it, but it is hard to let some things go that you loved in your former life.


4. I have a lot of choreo to learn!

Once again, I need to get my butt in gear to learn my Les Mills choreo for the launch this coming week! I am doing better this time around because I’ve already practiced a few times.

Go me!

5. Don’t forget to enter the giveaways I’ve got going on.

The 6-month exercise classes delivered to your TV giveaway ends Sunday night!

The Balance Bar & Yurbuds giveaway ends Monday night! <–p.s. I am lovvvving reading your guys’ flavor ideas for the bars! Some of ’em are making me drool!

6. Yesterday morning I did a quick Zumba workout to practice some dances I was prepping for, for today’s class….

…And then I didn’t shower afterwards.

I am gross.

In my defense, I waited awhile to put on ‘real’ clothes because I was playing with/feeding/putting Lily down for a nap, so it wasn’t that gross…. πŸ˜‰

And we got in some good reading time too, so a shower was put on hold.

{thanks Linz, for the awesome books!}

Besides, I knew I’d shower that evening after I taught BodyPUMP & CXWORX. So it wasn’t thhhhhaattt nasty.


Excuses, excuses.

7. Notice how I don’t have much food pics in each post or talk about it much lately?

It’s because while on vacay baby Lily used my phone for the white noise app every time she slept, so I never got a chance to take many pictures of my food.

That WIAW wednesday post was mostly all the pictures of food I took the entire 2.5 weeks. Yep.

Which is fine by me, but I just wanted to explain. I still love food, but I don’t necessarily even want to take pictures of all my food, so I loved not having my phone on me all the time. Thanks baby Lily! πŸ˜‰

But just for fun–here’s something yummy I ate the other day:

eggs, cheese (feta & laughing cow), & kale on whole wheat bread.

8. Hello, it is FRIDAY!! And the weekend.

I am SO glad. I feel like I can finally hang out with Jared a bit and decompress from the whole travel/doc’s appts/cleaning/unpacking/taking down Christmas decor/getting re-settled.

I’m definitely going to be practicing choreo, reading, running a few errands, and chillin. Can’t wait!


Have a GREAT weekend!

Do YOU always shower after a workout?!?! (be honest!!) Do YOU like taking pictures of YOUR food-why or why not?? What song on the radio do YOU think would be fun to dance to in a Zumba class?? <<<-I need YOUR input please! :)

    and we don’t mind taking pics of our food, we just sometimes forget and sometimes it’s hard to make certain foods look good, so not always worth it haha

  3. Showering after every workout….nope πŸ˜‰ depends on how sweaty I get!
    And as for whether or not I like taking pictures of my food…well….I don’t hate it (that wouldn’t bode well for a food blogger) but sometimes it’s a little tedious when i’m hungry and my food’s getting cold πŸ˜‰

  6. Annie C. says:

    Just yesterday evening I worked out and did not shower after! So, I laughed when I read your blog post!

    I think a good song for Zumba right now is that Ke$ha and Pitbull song: Timber.

  7. Nope…I definitely don’t always shower after a workout! I don’t always have the time. I’ll just change out of my sweaty clothes into something else and then go about my day. hehehe…glad I’m not the only one!

  8. So glad you get to have a chill weekend! We have a chill weekend on the agenda too, and I can’t wait! Re: taking photos of my food…honestly, I kinda hate it, and I always forget! But then I wish I did take some when I’m writing my posts sometimes. So, it’s a toss up I guess! Mmmm that egg sandwich looks so good! We’ve been making a lot of those lately. :)

  9. That white noise app is magic! I babysat for a very picky 10 month old over the summer one evening and he was NOT wanting to go to sleep (even though he was obviously tired). White noise app + rubbing his back = asleep bebe. πŸ˜‰

  11. I had to write a whole post about the workout shower conundrum, because I didn’t know what to do ( Shower twice a day? Stink? LOL. My lunch workout buddy and I always do what we call a “rinse” in the shower before coming back to work. We don’t wash our hair again, of course. If I don’t break much of a sweat, I’ll admittedly use wet wipes.

  13. Haha not gross, I tend to shower a lot less in the winter…

  14. I do NOT always shower after a workout – I may or may not have not showered more than once in the last week. I just get busy doing something else and then once the sweat is dry, I’m like, well, I’m fine right? I’ll shower later? :)

    It is definitely choreo season! :) I love the excitement before relaunches, but oh man.

    Current songs for Zumba… hmmm… Replay by Zendaya. Definitely. I imagine a lot of low work in the legs (plus watch the music video – her dancing? Amazing!).

  15. I am terrible when it comes to showering after a workout! I get around to it sometime during the day, but I am normally “gross” for a while ha. I like taking pictures of my food :) Especially when it looks really good! However, most of the time I have inhaled half of it before I even think about taking a picture of it haha

  16. I shower if I sweat. Don’t always sweat if I am only lifting weights or doing ab work. Also depends on time of day and what I am doing afterwards….

    Have just started taking pictures of my food. Am trying What I eat Wed. but I don’t think I could take pictures of my food everyday. It would be boring as I eat a lot of the same things. I like seeing pictures of food though because it give me ideas !

  17. Shower after every workout??? Surely you jest! LOL!! Not me – I have a toddler who seems to wake up about 30 seconds after I walk in the door from running or hitting the gym. Ya see, there’s this invention called deodorant. Yup – I go through a lot!

  18. Dave has a pretty crazy work schedule and usually isn’t home until after 7 Monday – Thursday. It definitely makes it tougher now that we have a baby. Pre baby, it was never really a big deal – it just meant I had more free time. Now, I’m like “I need you home! I need heeeeelp!” haha
    It makes the weekends THAT much better though!
