Thanks everyone for the well-wishing. I’m happy to say I’m finally feeling better. Hazzah!

In fact, I even felt good enough to teach my Zumba class last night. Boy did I miss it! Before finding my fitness-love (aka Zumba), it was nearly impossible to motivate myself to “work out.” I’d come up with all kinds of excuses why I didn’t need to go. Even when I started working out regularly, I never really minded missing a class here and there as a participant. But it’s funny…now that I’m an instructor, I just love having my classes to look forward to every week! My class turns into the work out I don’t want to miss. Not because I feel obligated to go but because I enjoy it so much! Yeaaaa talk about true fitness love. haha

Guess what I had again. Oh yea…more strawberry deliciousness. Mmm…What? The recipe made six shortcakes and there are only two of us (not counting Bailey) in the Chic house. I just had to eat them! 😉 And yes, that is 1 and 1/2 shortcakes in the picture.

Hubby is becoming quite the chef. Check out this amazing dinner he whipped up the other night – sweet potato fries, asparagus, and grilled filet.

I was craving red meat (or maybe just iron) and this hit the spot. Hubby got this local steak at health food grocery store Healthy Home Market.

And yea, I spiked the whipped cream on this strawberry shortcake, too. Thank you Amaretto for being awesome.

Reader question: Do you have one workout of the week that you refuse to miss? What is it? What motivates you to make it such a priority?

Reader question #2: What annoys you about blogs in general (please don’t name blog/blogger names)? I posted this question on twitter and Facebook and had some interesting answers (i.e. word verification on comments, auto-play music, bad grammar/spelling). What do you think?
