A Great Way To Start The Day!!!

Alrighty - so hubby and I had a kick ass date night yesterday. He took me to see "The Woman In Black" and it was amazing! We shared a popcorn and then went to dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings after!! As a testament to how far we've come with our eating, we ordered the amount of food we used to, BUT this time we ended up bringing most of it home!! We shared an order of fried pickles, I had a few fries and only 9 wings!! Go us!! Surprisingly - even with all that sodium, my weight really didn't jump too much from it at all (only about 1 pound instead of the usual 3!)

We came home after that and totally relaxed last night & watched some stuff on Netflix. I got a great night's sleep before getting up and going to class this morning. OMG Saturday classes are AMAZING and I'm so glad that we picked up those classes again!! I scorched 635 calories during Zumba this morning and had a blast doing it! We had 4 newbies in class today, so its always killer to have new people in class!!

After that, I came home and found hubby still sleeping - he's been popping DayQuil all week and hasn't been feeling 100%, so I decided to let him sleep and use the time to knock out my kettlebell swings for the day!! So I put on the Science Channel (yes, total nerd remember??) and rocked out 505 kettlebell swings before calling myself done for the day. I could have done more, but I didn't necessarily need to and now its already noon - so I don't want to spend the WHOLE day working out! haha!

So now - here's the workout for the day

Kettlebell Swings Challenge
Double Arm Swings with Squats: 5 sets of 25 reps (and then 5 extra to make an even number completed so far)
Single Arm Swings (Right) with Squats: 5 sets of 25 reps
Single Arm Swings (Left) with Squats: 5 sets of 25 reps
No Squat Swings: 5 sets of 25 reps

Total Swings for the Day: 505 Swings
Calories Burned: 225 calories
Total Time: 36 minutes

Once I was finished - I decided to treat myself to a great stretch and roll out on the foam roller. OMG its been so long since I rolled out on the foam roller and it HURT!! It was all a happy pain, but still pain nonetheless. I feel so much better after whole body feels like jello!

The plus to knocking out my workouts already - I'm already at 1830 calories burned for the day, 6559 Steps and 2 hours 21 minutes of activity and its only noon!!! Gotta love killer burn days on the weekend!!!

I think that's about it for me!! Happy Saturday of Zumba, Swings & killer rollouts. Now off to shower, eat some breakfast then venture forth for our fabulous plans for the day!! I hope you all are having as great a Saturday as I am so far!!!

The "10,000 Kettlebell Swing Challenge" Total Count: 3,430 Swings
Total Time Spent Whoopin' My Bum into Shape: 200 mins
Total Calories Burned Kickin' My Ass: 1260 Calories Torched
