Weekend Recap

I apparently suck at getting weekend recaps up on Monday. Oh well. Better late than never. 

I technically had a three day weekend, but it didn't feel like it. I took Friday off because I was attending my Zumba Basics 1 class to get my certification so that I can start teaching classes. That was an all day event. Registration started at 8:30 and the class actually began around 9 am. And we didn't finish up class until almost 6 pm. We had a short half hour lunch and a couple small breaks here and there, but it definitely made for a long day. 

It was a lot of fun though. I learned quite a few things that I feel like I can apply to my own classes when I start teaching. And the ZES' (Zumba Education Specialists) were a lot of fun. They were both dudes which apparently throws a lot of people off. But both of them could dance way better than me, that is for sure. It just doesn't seem fair, haha! But they were awesome and made the day enjoyable. And I am now officially certified! I'm pretty excited to start teaching too! I love Zumba so why not get paid to do something that I was already doing for free, haha! 

After class. Officially a certified Zumba Instructor selfie. Duh! I had to. 

Congrats to everyone!

After I was done getting my certification, I stopped at Chick-Fil-A, grabbed us some dinner and then headed home to meet the Husband. We ate dinner and then I got to work on cleaning the house because we had people coming over Saturday and I didn't want the house to look like a bomb had gone off. Shortly after I finished cleaning, I headed to bed. I knew I had to be up early the next day and I was tired. Pretty sure I fell asleep as soon as my head hit the pillow. 

I was up way too early on Saturday morning. I got some breakfast and then headed to the gym to get a quick 30 minutes in on the treadmill. Then I headed home to finish up the last bit of cleaning that I had to do before a friend of mine showed up. She's a Mary Kay sales consultant, so we did a mini facial and I actually found a few things that I wanted to buy. There Botanical face wash and hydrating cream is amaze-balls! 

After my friend left I had to get ready to leave. I had a personal training session with my trainer at 11:30 since I wasn't able to make my regular session on Friday. We did back and biceps. And my back is still sore. We went heavy on deadlifts and holy crap am I still feeling it. But it's an awesome soreness to have. It lets me know that I worked hard. 

After my session I met up with another friend of mine for lunch so that we could start talking about her wedding. I am her MOH, so we had lots to talk about. We went to Olive Garden for lunch and sat there for three hours and just talked and ate. I'm pretty sure the waitress hated us. Oh well, we had a good time. 

After lunch I went and did our grocery shopping for the week and then headed home to get ready for game night. We had a few friends over for pizza and snacks and played Cards Against Humanity. If you haven't played this game yet, you are seriously missing out. It is a blast and there is never a dull round with this game. I will warn you though, it is not for the easily offended. 

Sunday was busy too. I met up with a few of my Zumba friends on Sunday for one of their Birthdays. We went to this really good Mexican restaurant called Amanda's Fonda. Other than the food taking forever to get there, it was delicious and we had a lot of fun. While we were at lunch I was telling them about Cards Against Humanity and everyone seemed really interested in playing so we decided to have an impromptu game night. It was a lot of fun spending time with everyone outside of class. 

I ended up not getting home til around 10:30 Sunday night. I pretty much went straight to bed. It had been a long but fun weekend. But I did have to be at work the next day, so unfortunately the fun had to end. 

The only downside to the weekend was how crappy the weather was. It snowed pretty much all weekend. I wish it would have been nicer. I would have loved to have gotten Bentley out of the house for a little bit. He has been so cooped up with all this crappy weather. Oh well, it looks like this weekend might be better for that. Here's to hoping for a quick work week and nice weather this weekend!
