Happy Friday Eve, friends!!! I am ready for the weekend! A few weeks ago, my friend Diana wrote about “waiting for Friday.” I try not to do this, because I hate to wish away time. But sometimes I catch myself waiting for Friday. It’s always nice to have time to refresh and recharge. We have a very busy weekend coming up with lots of fun activities, but I am looking forward to it! You’ll have to check back and see what I am up to!
After work today, I came home, “suited up” for Zumba.
I forgot to mention my super-cute new Zumba pants! I am loving them!
While I was making my playlist, hubby and Sadie snuggled up watching cartoons. He’s teaching her about all the Marvel Comics superheroes. A few times, she would call out, “Look! There’s the Green Lantern!” I thought Hubby was going to tear up, he was so proud. He’s a huge comics fan.
Then it was time to make my Zumba playlist.
I want to tell you about a product I have tried the past 2 days. Sometimes I need something to give me a boost just before I go teach Zumba. When I have run 5K races in the past, I have used GU Energy gels, which sort of “fuel you up” before you get into the race. I really like the GU brand, and I have been wondering if these would work well for Zumba, too. Well, the hubs and I were in a sporting goods store the other day, and they had the gels! I was about to pick out a few flavors, but then I saw these “Energy Chomps” made by the same brand. I decided to try them. Each pack has 2 servings or 4 chomps, which are really like a gummy candy.
I really think these are helpful! I used them two nights in a row and I didn’t hit a “wall” either night. You can get them with or without caffeine. Mine had caffeine, but I bought another pack without the caffeine. I’ll try them out on Saturday and see how I like them!
After Zumba, as usual, I was starving, and on the way home, I remembered that I had a $5 gift card to Subway! YESSSSSSS!
The perfect amount to get a $5 Footlong… I went with Black Forest Ham on wheat with lettuce, tomato, black olives, pickles, and banana peppers. It ended up costing me only $0.45! Yay for free Subway!
