So I think I’ve left you in suspense long enough. 😀
! I tried Zumba for the first time !
How was it? Not good at all. The class I joined was extremely fast-paced and everybody had the routine down and I could not get into it! It was hard! First of all, I’m not coordinated. My feet were going one way, my arms were going another… it was a mess. But hey, it was my first time and I’m sure people could tell because I was trying so hard to catch up. There were point when I was actually facing the wrong way too! I’m pretty proud of myself for staying the whole hour though.
Will I try it again? Probably not unless it was a beginners class. I’m sure it burns a lot of calories, but the moves we were doing were really awkward for me. It was like we were jumping around and shaking our butts. What benefits from that anyway? All it did for me was get my feet all sweaty which caused major blisters. SO not only am I sore from my two classes on Tuesday, now I have blisters on my feet! Come on.
I finally bought the Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook because I hear so many good things about it. I feel weird buying recipe books with tons of meat dishes; it just doesn’t feel right. Although the book has some vegan recipes, it almost felt like a waste of money. Good thing I had a coupon! 😛
In fact, I don’t even agree with most of the stuff she says. She suggests using low-fat or fat-free dairy. Didn’t we already come to the conclusion that the “fat-free” diet is making America fat??? And she talks about how wonderful egg whites are… give me a break! We all know that eggs are horrible for your health and are extremely dangerous to your health as well! Can somebody remind me why I bought this book again? 😉
Another book I bought is called, “Japanese Women Don’t Get Old or Fat”. The Author of this book was on the Dr. Oz show Wednesday. It sounded pretty interesting. The book compares the western diet to the japanese diet and tells why the japanese diet has so many benefits.
After watching Dr. Oz I wanted some Miso soup! So I made some yesterday…
I like Miso once in a while, I couldn’t eat it multiple times a day like the Japanese though!
For mine I used:
- White miso
- Green onion
- Yellow onion
There are millions of different ways to make miso but this was my first time so I kept it simple.
So what to do today…
Today I plan on spending my day off finishing up some homework and enjoying the beautiful weather outside. If I’m feeling real adventurous I might finally finish my “Eating Animals” book! It’s been awhile.
Ohh, and you can’t forget eating cinnamon apple oatmeal…
