Discovering New Moves!

Hey Peeps!

Monday is almost done-YEAH! After blogging to you yesterday, I headed off to Topeka. And it snowed, and snowed and snowed-all the way to Topeka! We went 20 mph on the Interstate! It took 4 hours for a 2 1/2 hour trip-painful! But we go here in one piece, which we were all thankful for;) And it's all melted by now-weird Spring snows!

The first day of our training went fine. We got to eat at Panera for lunch (my fav!) But I snarfed it down before I could take a picture! It was a Thai Chicken Salad and black bean soup-super good!

For dinner, we stopped at Jeremiah Bullfrog's Sports Bar. I was a little scared to go into the joint. It was all blacked out and it advertised a women's dance party-uhhhhh..... But we walked in, and it was super cool!

TV's everywhere, lights and very colorful! And for a bar, the food was really good with a great selection!

I had a queso chicken wrap with side salad.


An hour after dinner, I decided to try a nearby Zumba class (I was a little full from dinner still....). I've never tried another Zumba class outside of my small town, so I was a little nervous, but excited to try some new songs and get some pointers from another instructor.

The class I went to was Donneisha's Zumba class a couple blocks away from my hotel. I emailed her a few weeks ago and she remembered me and even had me do a couple of songs! She has an infectious smile and can really move! I loved doing a class with her!!

After class all sweaty!

And the class was great too! They really embraced the two songs I did and gave it their all!

Thanks, class! Even her three little kids (front, right) danced along and they rocked!

Donneisha did a lot of fun salsa's which I tend to shy away from. But I really loved them and I think I want to try some! We're spreading the Zumba love!!!!

I brought my yoga mat and plan to get up and do some P90X leg and ab moves. I'm not good at getting up in the morning cause I LOVE to sleep;) But if I do it in the morning, I can go shopping in the evening;)

I hope you all have a fab week! I'll catch up with you soon:)

When you travel, what type of workout do you do? Where and what do you love to eat when you are away from home?


  1. I love doing body weight exercises when I'm away from home! Running is a great do-it-anywhere workout too! :)

  2. I don't really exercise when I travel, unfortunately :( Sometimes I can squeeze in a quick workout, but I get so lazy!
