Thursdays are supposed to be Zumba days, but the last 3 weeks, I haven’t done Zumba for one reason or another. Last week it was because I worked a double shift at work and didn’t have time to do a workout one day, so Zumba, being my “extra” workout got bumped. This week, I didn’t do it because when I woke up this morning, I was tired and decided to sleep in. I figured I can just do some cardio Saturday morning and then my strength training, as usual, Saturday evening. I’m good with that. I may go check out that boot camp class at my new gym. It’s at 9:30am, so I’d have more than enough time to do that, go get my nails done, then go home and shower and still make it to my sushi with friends at 2:30pm. We shall see how spry I feel Saturday morning…if I feel like Zumba or boot camp. I’m kinda thinking I’ll go ahead and do the boot camp.
So, yea, sushi on Saturday! It’s a little get together we plan every couple months. It’s all people from work, but most of the people work on the morning shift (I’m the afternoon/evening shift), so we go after they get off work at 2pm…and of course, on a day that I’m off work. We go to a different place each time. This time we’re going to a place called Piranha Killer Sushi. I took a look at their menu the other day and all I can say is yum-o! They’ve got some specialty rolls that look absolutely delicious. And they’re not expensive either! I usually give myself a cap of $35 to spend (that’s with tip, of course) when we go out for sushi. I usually get about 4 rolls with that amount. I’ll get 2 cheap ones and 2 specialty ones.
Then, on Sunday, I’m going to the renaissance festival with some friends. That is going to definitely be a “free” day as far as what I eat. I’m going to do my best to keep it at a minimum and not over-indulge, but I’m not going to track calories on Sunday. When we get to the festival, our first stop is always the food vendor that sells ogre toes (it’s crumbled bacon packed in sausage with strips of bacon wrapped around it and then it’s fried…it’s NOT healthy, but I only eat one a year, so it’s okay). Later in the day, when I get hungry again, I’ll either eat a funnel cake or a steak on a stick and a slice of cheesecake. There may end up being some jalapeno poppers in there somewhere toward the end of the day…if we’re stopping at a restaurant on the way home for dinner. I’m so excited about the festival because it’ll be the first time since I’ve lost 30 lbs that I’ll be wearing my corset. I may even have to go back to the vendor I bought it from last year and have them cinch me up a little more in the back laces. Woohoo! Because I’ve lost some serious inches since I wore it last spring.
