Zumba Pictures
A week ago yesterday, we had a photographer come to Zumba class to take some pics for Rita, who owns The Core Connection. I asked Rita to share the pics of me if she wouldn't mind and I was happy to see her e-mail earlier this week.
Sleepy legging it to the right!
Boom, boom, mama!
Side bend song!
I think this one is our salsa song, but I'm not positive.
I was stuck unhappily in the corner that day, as you can see.
I really love these pics because, unlike my running ones, I look like I'm enjoying myself. See, fitness can be fun!

Superbowl Sunday
I didn't want to miss Zumba two Sundays in a row, so I decided to go to Zumba and miss out on the Superbowl Party Eric is going to. I invited Tina over for the game, and there will be plenty of healthy snacks happening. No reason to go crazy overboard during the Superbowl in my opinion!

No Running With The Wolves this year??
Rumor has it that the Running With The Wolves 10K might not happen this year but I'm still hopeful. Unfortunately it means I may have to find another race during that same week or modify my training plan. Regardless, my super-stretch goal for the next 10K I run is 55:55.  I did 4 miles in 36:55 on Wednesday and felt pretty good after. So while it looks like a reasonably aggressive goal, but I am confident that by actually training for it this year, I can do it. I've also figured out a sweet way to get more outdoor runs in for the first nine weeks of training. I'm one of a lucky few people who got 40 hours of training to study for the SCJP test and I've decided that I'll use 4 hours a week for the next 10 weeks. This means I can come home a couple hours early twice a week, squeak in a run and then get in some Java study time. Yay!

Oleana again!
I'm (super) excited for my birthday this year because I asked Eric if we could go to Oleana to celebrate. I've been ogling the menu for the last two-three weeks and I've already decided that I want:
Meze: Deviled Eggs with Tuna and Black Olives
Main: Trout Spanakopita with Cucumber, Avocado and Salmon Roe
Dessert: Milk Chocolate-Tahini Tart with Halvah Ice Cream, Brown Butter Crème and Sesame Toffee
Now let's just hope they don't change the menu on me between now and then.

What are your plans for the Superbowl? Watching it or ignoring it? Lemme know down below!
