Happy Valentine's Day!

Yesterday I got wonderful flowers and chocolates and tonight we are going out for a very nice dinner!
Today, as every Saturday is, it's my biggest workout day. I taught 2 classes at the Y - a double step class and a strength class. Then I did 30 minutes on the elliptical. That's a total of 150 minutes of cardio! I got a new HRM monitor yesterday (the puppy ate the old one) so I was finally able to see how many calories I burned. So... are you ready??? It totalled 1769!!!!
Definitely going to enjoy dinner tonight!
Here's the menu and the wine selections with each course - YUM!!
