Rush (to be) Fit

This has been an excellent weekend so far, and I can only hope that tomorrow is just as good.

I kicked the weekend off with a bang (or a salsa, meringue, cha-cha, etc) by getting my butt in gear and going to Zumba! I loved it the first time I went, so I knew I would love it yesterday. I had a blast. It's so much fun to dance, and laugh along with everyone else as we try our hardest to do the steps and not look like total fools (except we definitely did).

Last night Sakief and I decided to take each other on a date for Mellow Mushroom (an incredible pizza place), and to see 21 Jump Street. The pizza was definitely a poor choice diet wise, but so delicious! Also, if you haven't seen 21 Jump Street, do yourself a favor and SEE IT NOW! I haven't laughed so hard for an entire movie, probably ever. I even caught myself snorting a few times because I was laughing so hard.

Today started off with another workout. Sakief recently purchased the "Rush Fit" DVDs, which are a P90X/Insanity type workout put together by George St. Pierre (an MMA fighter for those who don't know him). I had told Sakief awhile ago that I would do it with him, and then again last night that if he worked out in the morning that I would join him. I'm glad he took me seriously and held me to it, because as soon as we were conscious, we were popping in a DVD. Let me tell you, that is one crazy work out. I think I died a few times. But I feel great! A little sore, especially in the last few hours since I have been sedentary watching basketball, but great none the less. Hopefully with Sakief's encouragement I can keep up with Rush Fit (or any exercise program for that matter).

After he forced me to drink the worst protein "shake" I have ever had in my life (you know, because I drink them ALL the time, ha), and we were showered, we decided to head to the mall. Nothing crazy there, although I did find a nice pair of shoes for work, but it really is so nice to be able to enjoy each others' company outside of home. We did stumble upon a free wine tasting in World Market, and after sampling a few wines I found myself a little tipsy (alcohol isn't really on a low carb diet).

Now he's studying (so proud of how well he's doing in school!), and I'm being lazy and cheering on the Bucks in the final four. Perfect weekend if you ask me.
