WIAW Official #4: Sick of Soup

I can tell you the exact day of the last time I was sick. It was January 5th, 2009. It was my first day at my new full time job after graduation (well, my first college graduation). I tried to fight it, as usual, but ended up having to go home because it was pretty hopeless. It was just another round of sinus mess that I typically get every year, but I haven't had one since then. Until now that is. However, it is Free Week and I am NOT going to miss teaching these classes. Free Week is SO much fun! Everyone is so excited to try all of the classes and the gym is packed with people. I had about 70 people in my RIPPED class yesterday, which was awesome. Then tonight in my Kick N Sculpt class I had over 112 people!!!!! So amazing!! I am frustrated with myself because I keep forgetting to take pictures of the class, but I will try to remember tomorrow!

Since I haven't been feeling great, I have been eating nothing but soups and sandwiches. I am sick of soup and sandwiches. No more please.

I took half a dose of NyQuil last night (yes, only half a dose) and was out for over 10 hours. So, needless to say, there was no 'breakfast' today. I started out with, you guessed it, some soup and a sandwich.

Pacific Foods: Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato Soup

PB&J: Nature's Own Wheat Bread, Skippy Natural with Honey, Low Sugar Jelly

Fruit Cup: Peaches with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar

After this lovely meal, I had class from 1:30-4:30pm. I headed to the gym because my Kick N Sculpt class started at 5:30pm. About an hour before teaching, I had a medium banana, half a Z Bar and this pack of almonds:

At first I was worried everyone would want to go the BodyPump or yoga classes that are also at 5:30pm, but imagine my surprise when I had 112 People!!!?? I was so happy! I love when people come to my class and get a great workout and have FUN! Naturally I was on my 'workout high' after class and now I am..crashing..

When I checked my mailbox I was so excited to see that my Hungry Bars from Bluebird Bakery had arrived! Jen from Peanut Butter Runner suggested them and I couldn't wait to try one. I chose the Dark Chocolate Cherry Coconut bar out of my variety pack for my post-workout snack:

Espresso Powder? Uh oh...

Oh my goodness, soooo yummy! Like the bakery says, these are the perfect cross between a granola bar and an oatmeal cookie. Yum! Now I can't decide what to fix for dinner....I kind of just want to go to bed....I definitely don't want soup.

What are some of your favorite group fitness classes?

Don't forget to check out the whole party at Jen's!
