Rockin’ Out!

Tonight, after work, I hit up a Barre Burn class at Equinox. (Read my experience the first time I went.) I’m pretty sure that after this weekend, I sweat out champagne and McDonald’s. Like a rockstar. The instructor is absolutely hilarious, and I got an intense ab workout just by giggling at him. He also had a kickass playlist, which included Pink’s F***-in Perfect. I don’t think I’d ever listened all that closely to the song, because I didn’t realize the real name until he said “I hope I have the right version and she’s not cursing like a truck driver.” So clearly, I had to come home and download the explicit version, because I’m from Jersey and I do curse like a truck driver every once in a while…

I came home to these two lovely boxes. Thank god.

I made a quick rice bowl with a turkey sausage, broccoli and Brussels sprouts. I sauteed the broccoli and Brussels in a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar and then threw salsa over the whole thing while having a solo dance party at the stove to that Pink song. Nice, easy, healthy dinner.

I had a little of this ice cream. It sucked. False advertising. It was not decadent at all. They definitely did something to make up for the lack of dairy. Does anyone know of a dairy-free ice cream that doesn’t suck? (I’m trying to abstain from dairy for the good of my stomach…but it may not be worth it for crap ice cream like this!)

Also, THESE CAME IN THE MAIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so psyched.

    @Kristin Maverick: That was actually one of the big reasons I moved off of Tumblr (that and wanting to oh, I don’t know, have my blog stay up?)–Disqus confused people too much…so I probably won’t be installing it :-/

    I’ve been wanting to try a Barre class but they haven’t been offered anywhere convenient for me. They sound like so much fun and I’m sure it felt amazing after the wild weekend you had!

    Hi, does goat milk have the same effect as cow milk for you? If not, there’s the most delish goat milk ice cream called Laloo’s. The Mission Fig is amazing, and the chocolate is rich and wonderful. And although it’s full fat, it’s only 130 cal for 1/2 cup. Win/win!!

    I love that song for working out to. That and CeeLo Green’s F*** You.

    I want to try a pure barre class but there aren’t any round here.

    For non-dairy ice cream, try Trader Joe’s Soy Creamy Cherry Chocolate Chip. They used to have an amazing mango vanilla flavor that was the best thing ever but they discontinued it. I’ve been writing them emails to bring it back ever since.

    I love the So Delicious coconut milk ice creams. They are made by the same people as the stuff you posted above, but in a white container. They also have little mini ice cream sandwiches that are excellent and good for portion control. My husband, who is the typical man averse to trying anything he thinks is weird health food, loves them.

      I totally agree. The coconut milk ice creams are the best! MUCH better than the soy version. Try it 🙂
