More Kickboxing & Heading Out on Week Night

Morning Kickboxing
Jason got up at 5 am to go swim this morning, so I peeled myself out of bed to get in my workout. I did Cathe's Kick, Punch and Crunch with the stability ball abs. It was a great workout and gave me the energy boost I needed to get the day started. In all honesty, even if Jason hadn't gotten up, I was planning on getting up early to get in another morning workout. I have plans this evening so I knew I did need to get it done. Kickboxing, in my opinion, is a great morning workout. Not too complicated, no chance of falling over or off the step...

I'm still in the market for more kickboxing workouts as I'm really enjoying them. Oddly, I used to not. I may end up having to track down a gym that offers classes. No Amy Bento - but has anyone tried Kelly Coffey-Meyer's latest kickboxing workout? Any other instructors??

Out on a Week Night
After work I am going over to a friend's house for a girly party: jeans and purses. I've never been to one of these parties. The last thing I need is shopping temptations! However, I do need a new purse in a bad way, plus I'll get to catch up a bit with a friend. So....why not. I'm really such a homebody during the week that this will be good for me. It's something I need to do more often, get out and enjoy...period. Not just wait until the weekend.

The party starts at 6, so dinner will end up being later than normal tonight. I really prefer to eat well before 7 pm. But, I'm trying to just go with the flow and enjoy the evening rather than stick to my rigid schedule. I so rarely do anything on week nights, so this will be good for me. Jason said he'd take care of dinner. He's going to do sweet potato "fries" with my Black Bean & Quinoa Burgers (recipe here). Simple, but tasty. A good mid-week meal if you ask me.

Since I have made this meal several times, and in order to get the post done before the party, I'm going to reuse a photo - hope you don't mind. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do right ;-)



Have a great evening!
