So , last night went on a fabulous walk slash talk with my girl, Sunny, i loved it 1 hour power walk, o yaaaaa!!!!!!!!today I started my day with seeing from the balcony into the intercoastal, a shark, yes i said shark, stingray or manaray, and 3 manatees. Seriously!!!!!!The best wake up ever. ate my protein pancakes, taught an amazing sculpting class, and yes I was sore from yesterdays class, ouch. BTW i teach 3 classes tomorrow, yep i might be nuts but day 7 , rockin and rollin.
so pushing it with 7 workouts last week was trully hard, this week i think I have the same, i am really tired and my muscles are exausted. i have to eat a bit more carbs this week to keep up with all this muscle abuse.This week I am going to make cauliflower mashed potatoes, from my nutritionist freind Sunny, and also I will try one new recipe out of my fitness mags, I will let you know which one when i decide.Today will be another rest day, because I need it badly. By tomorrow , Zumba should be a breeze. Have a great Cinco de Mayo, enjoy those cocktails lightly.
