Friday’s Food & Fitness: Dance Dance Dance!

Hey guys!  Happy Friday!  Are you excited for the weekend?  I have some really fun things planned!  Well, in the interest of getting to the weekend faster, let’s dive right into this week’s Food and Fitness!

FOOD

This week started out with this awesome Thai-inspired meal.

Thai1

Red thai-curry with sea bass, coconut rice and a salad made of papaya, mango, grapefruit, mint, cilantro, shallots with a lime dressing.  Holy yum!

For lunch this week I made this delicious fall salad: butternut squash, pomegranate, feta and almonds.  So good!

Also on the menu, black bean burgers with sweet potato fries.  You guys, you have to try this.  So delicious!

And because by the time Thursday rolls around I’m so ready for the weekend to begin I named it: Build Your Own Taco Night! (aka I’m too lazy to make everyone’s tacos for them).

    I love food. lol. Anything tasty and flavorful that makes me feel good! And sometimes, these goods can even be healthy. Right now I am obsessed with salads from Chop’t.

    This weekend is low key for me. I will be at Nellie’s special Zumba class tomorrow though!

    All this food…yum, yum, yum! I want it all! 😉 My favorite cuisine…that’s a hard one! I guess I’d have to say Italian and Mexican. Oh how I love dance workouts! They’re just so fun and I never feel like I’m working out – I feel like I’m out a dance party!

    This weekend, I’m going to Zumba tomorrow a.m., my parents’ house tomorrow p.m. and I’m not sure about Sunday yet.

      I love Italian and Mexican! I totally agree that it never feels like you are working out when you do a dance workout!

      It’s pretty easy! It’s just shallots sauteed in EVOO plus red curry paste, coconut milk & stock. I didn’t add any veggies because I made the side salad!

    I have to try that butternut squash salad combo!

    My favorite type of cuisine is definitely Italian — give me some pasta, bread, and wine, and I’m a happy girl!

    ooooohhhhh new dances coming soon? Very exciting! I love make your own taco night – it’s a fav in this house AND the boys like to do it themselves. Bonus.
    Can’t wait to hear more about your next dance party! I think Just Dance is on the menu for me and some friends tonight:-)

    I change my routine up so much sometimes I’m wondering if I get any real benefits! I am working on my food issues and today I feel pretty good about what I ate. There are chips in the kitchen and I did not have any! I’m going to brush my teeth to keep me from going in there now that it’s getting late.

    I have the Zumba videos you get from training as well as the ones that come in the box set with the toning sticks. I did one today that focused on arms and abs because I had run and felt like I needed some more upper body work.

    I love building your own tacos…it’s the best!

      That is awesome that you didn’t eat any chips! It’s really hard for me to have stuff in the house and not eat it so I try to only buy ingredients for meals and not impulse shop. Doesn’t always work though!

I am excited to take classes with Brittany in person this summer! I have followed Brittany online for some time. I particularly like the Barre and Pilates workout videos. Her workout techniques reflect current thinking and best practices. She supports all levels of fitness. Definitely worth a try!

Brittany is the BEST. She is inspirational, motivational and innovative. No two classes are ever the same. I'm sad when the summer classes end, but I'm looking forward to checking out her online classes this fall and winter.

My wife and I decided to give Balance Barre Fitness a try and we were not disappointed. We thought the classes would be pretty easy but were surprised at how rigorous they were. The class was great for working on our coordination and core strength. I don't get to many ...
