Tabata update: I am very pleased to say that class went really well today. Everyone worked really hard and were sweating buckets (me included, sans weights!). We had some newcomers to the class as the lunch time Pilates session was cancelled and they wandered in to Tabata. I made sure to give lots of alternates for varying levels of strength and ability. When class wrapped up people seemed genuinely grateful for their Sam-style butt kick!! I was so pumped to get a taste of teaching and it completely exceeded my expectations. I kinda want to do it again tomorrow!!!

So tell me, what made your day today? And have you seen all the Oscar nominated films? Who do you think will win this year?


  1. I love Spinach and Greek Yogurt! :)
    I do have the bride gene somedays! Not today, but normally I do.
    AND then what is a Tabata class?


  2. I had to look up Tabata - but it sounds AWESOME. I wish you taught it at my gym. I'm sure you did a great job!

    You haven't seen Toy Story 3? OK, so I have kids and that's probably why I've seen it 100 times, but rent it! It's so cute and it makes me cry every time I watch it.

    Lastly - I'm SOOO jealous you are going to Cuba! It's so close to me, yet hard to get to.

  3. So glad that your class went well!

    The only one of those movies that I've seen is Toy Story 3. :) My kiddos think it's the best thing ever! I want to see the Kids Are Alright and The Fighter though!

  4. The Fighter was SO good! Way better than I thought it would be.

  5. I went to dinner with friends last night and had lots of fun. After being stuck in the house due to the storm, I was so glad to be out.

    Your class sounds great! It's so fun to motivate others.

  6. I loved being able to get my run in early. I always have to run in the afternoon now, but it was nice to get it out of the way early.

  7. you're right.. the protein plate doesn't look half bad!

    And please elaborate on a tabata class :)

  8. I really want to see the King's Speech (is that what it is called?) and the Fighter Too - but in non-Oscar nominated films, I was to see No Strings Attached even more! Is that bad?

  9. Currently eating the "Power House" rice bowl from Fresh and reading HH&SJ :)

  10. What made my day today was having a yummy salad from souper salads!

    I unfortunately have only seen one of the nominated movies -- Social Network which I thought was good but not good enough to win an award.

    Ya, what its a tabata class??!

  11. I won a giveaway today! :D Woo hoo! I would say it's a good day.
