Year in Review + Un Piece de Resistance
Happy New Year!!! Or… almost New Year. I finished 2009 on an awesome note today with a two hour group exercise medley. Oh yes. Fuelled up with some waffles first to make up for missing Waffle Wednesday while at my mom’s.
I was a little iffy going into the medley today, as I’m not the biggest fan of two of the classes we were doing – but it was awesome!
Started with 30 minutes RPM (ie, spin class). I was sweating up a storm 15 minutes into it and knew I had a long way to go… We followed that with 30 minutes Body Attack. Which is a sports conditioning class. Lots of hopping and jumping. I’ve done this class once before and didn’t care for it. Cardio classes on the floor hurt my legs and joints. But 30 minutes of it was perfect! Plus, I was nice and toasty from the spin class.
After the first hour, I was a sweaty, breathless mess. But we weren’t over yet. We then did 30 minutes Body Pump, doing squats, chest, back, triceps and biceps. And then to finish it all off, we did 30 minutes Body Flow, which is yoga with a little bit of pilates.
It was just a special New Year’s Eve offering, but I seriously wish they did this line-up more often. It was SO much fun!! (and by fun, I mean torturous). In two hours I burned 700 calories. Not bad, eh? Hopefully that makes a dent in the booze and food I’ll be consuming tonight ;)
Lunch was a simple one gobbled up before jetting for work…
Tofurkey, swiss and hummus toasted sandwich. With more hummus and veggies on the side.
For dinner, I wanted something that would mix nicely with the champagne I’m drinking tonight…
And for my “piece de resistance” I present you with Fluffernutter Cookies. Fellow fluffernutter-lover Emily, e-mailed me the recipe and I knew I had to whip up a batch to bring to my New Year’s party tonight. The ingredients:
Directions: Slather crackers with Fluff, slather other half with peanut butter, and sandwich them together.
Melt chocolate (I used 1 1/2 of those Bakers bars) in microwave. Dip crackers in chocolate using a fork, completely coating. Drizzle leftovers on top to make look pretty :)
Cool in fridge or freezer, and devour!
Hey, I just gotta taste test the goods ;) I actually think I could have slathered on a lot more fluff and PB. It gets lost a little in the cracker and chocolate. Ah well, now I know for next time!
And because it’s the last day of 2009, it only makes sense to do a…
Year In Review!
Ummm… yeah. It’s been quite a year!!
I’ll be back tomorrow (hopefully not hungover) with some party pics and my usual monthly goal check-in and setting. Hope you’re all having a wonderful New Year!! xoxo
