Another week has flown by, and I’m still diggin the college life. But first off I wanted to thank you all so much for all of your well wishes on my Zumba Certification last week! It was one of the most amazing days, and thinking about it still makes me smile! 🙂
On the Zumba front I have some exciting news. I am now teaching my very own classes twice a week! And I taught another impromptu class this past friday. It is such a blast. I have both boys and girls who are coming back class after class, and loving it. They even have favorite songs that they are continuing to request. YAY! It is still such a dream come true for me.
The only thing that I am having trouble with, is I am having a little back pain. I was doing some kick boxing, and I think I pulled something in my lower back. It hurts really badly, and I’m not sure what to do. I took the day off today from the gym, and I’m hoping that I will be back in action tomorrow since I have a class at 9pm. Do you have any tips on how to deal with body soreness and back pain?
Since it seems like now I am always on the go, I have been eating a lot of quick to go meals, including bars. Before I left for college I had the opportunity to pick up a few of these bad boys from the grocery store.
The Wai Lana Yogi company makes tons of yummy bars, but I chose to try the Nana Banana flavor. Each pack comes with two mini bars, and each one is a serving. One bar contains 110 calories.
Ingredients : Dates, Almonds, Banana, Vanilla Extract and Vitamin E.
Eh. This bar was okay. It had a good flavor, but it had a bit of a strong bitter taste. I am thinking that it might have something to do with the added vanilla extract. Also I wasn’t crazy about the higher caloric content, with two servings per pack you are tempted to eat both! I would be interested in trying more flavors from this company, but I don’t think I would try this one again!
I also had the opportunity to try a Think Fruit bar in Chocolate Pomegranate Power.
I really enjoyed this bar! I thought it had a nice chocolate flavor, but I loved the hint of pomegranate. It made it way more interesting than your traditional bar. I would definitely love to try other flavors!
Anywho this week is jam packed for me. I have sorority recruitment this week, which is going to be taking up a lot of my time. I do not know if I am going to be joining a soroity, but I am really excited to do some networking and to meet some new people. I also have MIDTERM’S! AHHH! Today I took 13 chapters of notes for my nutrition science class, and did tons of reading. I have a group presentation on tuesday, and then midterms on wednesday and friday. Wish me luck!
Oh and I finally was able to catch up on my google reader! Yahoo! I went from over 100 to wait for it.. 128! YES! Along with that, three loads of laundry and room cleaning I am feeling very productive.
Question of the day – Are you part of a sorority?
