Dance Fever

My back and chest are sosososososo sore from yesterday's workout! My program has taught me that in order to gain muscle strength, I have to lift heavier weights. I've definitely made a lot of progress from when I first started lifting but I want to see more defintition. Yesterday's morning workout consisted of:

3-4 sets of 8-10 reps with lots of grunting, huffing and puffing involved

Close grip pull down
Dumbbell Chest press
One-arm bent over row
Push Ups


Bent over dumbbell row
Upright row
Military Press
Wide grip pull down

Protein smoothie afterwards to aid in my muscle recovery.
 Into the vitamix:
  • handful of spinach
  • handfuls of both frozen blueberries and blackberries
  • scoop of chocolate whey powder
  • milk
  • yogurt
  • banana
Cold, frothy, and delicious!
Sonoma break: Man. What a life!

Courgettes and mushrooms sauteed w. EVOO and salt n. peppa
With a generous pour of siracha on top.
My chicken developed a nice crust to it. Seasonings: salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper,
Went on a quick shopping excursion yesterday and bought 2 new dresses, a top, and some winter gloves. Some days a girls just gotta shop!

Reading material: It's been a loong time since I've perused a fitness magazine other than my YMCA materials
Yea so what if I like to read men's materials (and its not to stare at the ripped men, although not a bad perk). I'm assuming my future client base will be women AND men.

Dinner last night: 54 Pinang
Starting the night off right w. a glass of house white.
Seriously, these prawn crackers should be illegal. They fried them on the spot so they came out crispy and slightly warm. Once you pop you can't stop! So addicting..
Fried shrimp balls with a layer of sweet potato and coconut.
Roti, a type of flatbread. Soft and chewy with some warm bean mixture (dal) on top
These shrimp appetizers were my favorite. Who knew coconut and sweet potato could gel together.
Yumminess all around.
Jasmine rice
Egg fried rice
White fish in a curry sauce. The fish absorbed the sauce nicely and was pretty tasty.
Lamb shank. It was tender but the flavor wasn't as pronounced as most malaysian dishes I've had. Overall, the food was decent. I wouldn't necessary go back but if I was in the area and craving Malaysian, I would hit it up!

Dance all night: My salsa company had its Christmas party last night.
It involved lots of dancing and posing.
Beautiful people with beautiful smiles :)
My salsa teachers.

Dancing can be a form of exercise.
What a great way to burn some calories without even trying!
"one more time, music's got me feeling so free"

Breakfast this morning:
Yogurt parfait:
  • vanilla yogurt
  • goji berries
  • almonds
  • blueberries
  • raisins
  • muesli
With a green monster muffin for some extra carbs.

Song of the day- Juanes: "Y Es Por Ti "

To run or not to run. That is the question this morning .
