Cardio Mix class- flashback to the 80’s!!


pre workout- banana w/peanut butter-2pts+

Like Lexy said in her post, we tried a new ‘Cardio Mix’ class at the gym and I swear we forgot our legwarmers!!!! hahaha!  It felt like a combo of Jazzercise, Reebok Step video (which I used to do and STILL have the VHS and step!! haha), and any other 80’s workout you can think of mix with few modern moves. It was hilarious!!!  Very different than our other classes where you can find yourself phoning in the workout cause it was so different and didn’t ‘feel’ like a hard workout compared to what we’ve been doing….but after a few minutes I realized that it was up to me to push myself to sweat and get my heartrate up to make it a good workout no matter what we were doing. 😉

50 mins of ‘Jazzercise’ according to my WW app – +8 activity points


post workout ISO 100 chocolate protein– I love this stuff!!!! 2pts+

my latest invention…..Waffle-Grilled Cheese & Turkey sandwich with my 2tsps EVOO for dipping and getting those healthy oils in–9pts+

One of the sweetest ladies from church came by and dropped this off out of the blue and said it was ‘Just because I was thought about’…..awww!!!

Guesstimating- 10pts+ from WW app

had 1/2 oz of almonds after eating my cake so that I wouldn’t get that sugar high/ headache!


dinner – chili w/cheese and chips – 10pts+

I found this new little find at the grocery store!! I used to be a HUGE Dr Pepper fan but when I quit drinking calories years ago Diet Dr Pepper just didn’t do it for me….. so I haven’t really had one in a longggg time.

Now Dr Pepper Ten is like a Coke Zero equivilant and it tastes like the real thing!!!

only 1pts+ for the entire bottle— yay!!!

Total Daily: 36 points

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
