Menu Plan - Week 15

Well...I did it.

I Zumba-ed.

I had heard about how fun it was but was concerned about a possible decline in booty-shaking skills as I have not had to do much real dancing, the kind that will make you sweat, leave you sore, and cause you to need to take "water breaks" (read:  excuse for stopping before having a heart attack on the gym floor) in a long time.

Truth be told there was a steep decline in booty shaking skills from my drill team days.
In my head I was unleashing my inner Beyonce but in reality, I looked more like Urkel.

My mind was willing but my muscles are flesh was weak.

I think this about sums it up:

But here's the thing:  it was a charity event and our battle cry is "Anything for Anthony" and humiliating myself by doing Zumba falls under the "anything" category.

Plus it was fun.  Really fun.

Give it a try...even if you too will look like you are auditioning for the role of Zombie #3 in a B-rate horror flick.  At least you wont be alone...

Here's what we will be eating this week:

Sunday - Pizza Pasta as inspired by this salad I saw last week
Monday - Chicken Fried Steak, Mashed Potatoes, & Green Beans
Tuesday - Chicken Noodle Soup
Wednesday - Beans, Green, and Cornbread
Thursday - Homity Pie & Steamed Veggies
Friday - Date Night
Saturday - British Themed Supper Club and we are hosting!  :)

This is part of Menu Plan Monday.


  1. Oh Zumba. It scares me. I can't even keep up with a plain old aerobics class. I sometimes watch those Zumba ladies and I can't figure out how they know what to do. I am always so impressed with them.

    1. These ladies were amazing! They all had the official Zumba pants (basically parachute pants with tassels) on and I asked what the deal was with them. They said that it is motivational - that you want your tassels to swing like the instructors' tassels. Before the class(es) started I thought, "how ridiculous!" then after doing the class I thought, "I want tassels so they can swing like that!" :)

    Somehow this comment was deleted before ever being published: "A zumba place just opened down the street from me - well, around the corner and down that street, anyway. Every now and then, I see them doing a class(?) as I'm driving by on my way home. Looks like fun - I wonder if they have any classes for out-of-shape, middle aged people. . . :)"

    1. I figured once my jigglies were jiggling in the right direction, I just went with their momentum. :)
