WIAW Official #10: Celebrity Encounter

Happy WIAW!

We are finally in the double digits, woo hoo!

You're probably wondering what 'celebrity' we encountered yesterday. Well, it was none other than Hugh Acheson from Top Chef!

My beautiful friend Emily had the guts to ask for a picture!

I really wanted to ask for a picture too, but he was with a friend and I was too chicken didn't want to bother him.

Monday was manic Monday for me. I had class from 9:00am to 9:55am, met with my supervisor for an outreach project that I am doing for my Nutrition Education class from 10:00am to 11:30am. I then studied for an exam I had later that day. Class from 1:25-2:15pm, studied, exam from 3:35-4:25pm. Then I had a meeting at 5:30pm, but I wasn't able to make it because something came up.

WIAW this week is featuring What I Ate on Tuesday, February 21st.

Breakfast before class at 9:00am was a Kashi Banana Chocolate Chip Bar.


After class, I headed to Target to return some things and get some stuff for the fitness expo this weekend. I grabbed some of their awesome trail mix while I was there and had some on the way home.

Dangerous

For Lunch I had a salad, steamed green beans with almonds and a Quorn patty.




I'll be honest, I wasn't too impressed with the Quorn patty. I microwaved it and didn't eat it immediately and it was completely dried out. I think I will stick with Boca burgers.

I had a group meeting at 3:00pm at a local coffee shop that I have actually never been to. I haven't had a latte in probably over two months, so it was definitely time for one.

Okay, technically this was my friends' cup, but isn't it pretty?

Mine was in a disposable cup...I didn't know there was an option...oops


I taught a 30 minute Abs class and then a 60 minute RIPPED class. It was a doozy!

We did:
Intervals (Season 6),
Intervals (S3),
Power (S6),
Plyometrics (S5),
Endurance (S6),
Resistance (S6),
Core (S6),
Cooldown (S3).

Everyone did great! I was pretty beat when I got home so instead of making Mama Pea's Better Spaghetti Sauce From A Jar, like I had planned, I popped a Newman's Own Thin Crust Cheese Pizza in the oven. Sorry, don't judge me. I served it with a side salad. I also forgot to take pictures. Fail.

On another note, I signed up for Hip Hop Hustle Training...we know that I don't dance....time to step out of my comfort zone....help us all....

ps-This is my 102nd post!!!

What is your favorite Group Fitness class?


Check out the party @ Jenn's!

  3. I met Hugh this fall when he came to the Texas Book Festival in Austin! He was just about to start a cooking demo sponsored by the store where I was working, so I didn't get a picture WITH him...only OF him. He was, however, so kind and funny, and he did a little dance before he began to 'get psyched' that I thought was adorable. :)

  6. You may find you like the patties better if you cook them either in a toaster oven or in a small skillet on the stove.

    1. I do like them! I wish I had time to make my own, but these are really good! I like the texture better than the crunchy ones
