Today was one of the best days I’ve had in a while. It started off Friday night with one of my favorite dinners; sautéed spinach and garlic with pasta and Parmesan cheese.
First I heat a little olive oil in a pan and add a clove (or two) of garlic.
Sautee the garlic for about 2 minutes, until soft, and then add the fresh spinach.
The spinach will wilt rather quickly, which is what makes this one of my go-to quick dinners.
With a little pasta and a little Parmesan cheese, this is the perfect dinner.
A little wine never hurt anybody either.
I had a really hard time getting out to bed this morning and although sleep sounded really good, I couldn’t wait to get to spin this morning!
Today I went to CycleStudio for their Wheels UP! class. Wheels UP! is “will have you ripped-roaring and ready for the day with a dynamic blend of energizing music and rocking moves” — Just how I wanted to start off my winter break!
The class was 1 hour long and was full of hip hop and rap music, my favorite!! Although I love oldies, when I workout I want a solid beat and a rhythm that makes me want to push myself. Rap does that for me, so I when 50 cent and Jay-Z came on, I knew it was going to be an awesome class!
My garmin said that I burned 1360 calories….. which is crazy. Either way, I got a great workout in! Afterwards I grabbed a cup of iced coffee from BUZZ Bakery.
The rest of the day was filled with shopping, hanging out with my dear friend Kristi and her baby boy Carter, taking a nap, wrapping gifts, and watching Little Women. It was an awesome day, a fantastic way to start off the holiday break.
Tomorrow should be just as awesome…
- A little last minute Christmas shopping
- Going to the Redskins game at Fedex Field (Redskins vs. Vikings)
