what a DAY! we spent over half of our saturday at our very first event, the Be Fit For Life Health Expo hosted by Student Apprentice on the campus of Houston Baptist University.
it was an outstanding turnout- kids from ages 12-17 showed up and soaked in a ton of health and fitness info at each booth.
we taught the kids about effective fitness and nutrition, and about 6 Pack USA's role in helping people achieve their fitness goals.
Sonny and Brian gave demos on how to calculate lean body mass and body fat using a caliper.
and i proved that clean eating DOES taste good with my PB2 oatmeal carob chip cookies for the babies!
Congressman Al Green even stopped by to say a few encouraging words to the kiddos.
it was a pleasure meeting him!
we also had some help from some great friends of ours- a huge thank you to Miko (r) the Zumba QUEEN for teaching a rockin' class! that girl can seriously MOVE.
these ladies are the BOMB! Miko, Kara and Annette (r) volunteered their precious saturday to help 6 Pack USA make the biggest impact possible.
one last pic before wrappin' up the first part of the expo here.
Whole Foods was in the building teaching the kids about fresh, wholesome, all natural snacks and meal ideas,
while Annette was giving them a great workout, TKB style! she is the best of the best!
Miko was workin' it out on the floor with her Zumba skills,
while Brian, Kara, and I ran drills in the gym and stressed the importance of daily physical activity.
we are looking forward to growing, networking, and participating in more health and fitness events in our community, city, and beyond. a final and gigantic THANK YOU to Denesha James and the entire Student Apprentice staff for allowing us to be apart of this amazing event.
after several weeks of planning, meetings, phone calls, and late nights prepping for this event, Sonny was ready to let loose! Tornado burger style.
someone brought one to his office just last week and he says it smelled so good he wouldn't even LOOK in its direction. so, he wanted it to be his epic post-expo meal. notice i said HE!!! i wanted no parts of this lol.
ok maybe a few fries.
are you kidding me...
i didn't IG this cause i didn't want to discourage my followers LOL. but i said i would certainly blog it! i did have a bite- i could NOT resist all that cheese, come on! i saved my appetite for a little later though.
we take our date nights SERIOUSLY. this is not a game. the expo was behind us, and since we were toddler-less for a few more hours, we sped home and got cleaned up for dinner. the weather was absolutely outstanding, and a patio was calling our name.
i promise we planned to go somewhere different...
i had the Ruggles Green atlantic salmon salad with the dressing on the side,
and grilled fish tacos on corn tortillas for Sonny. we could have at least ordered something different, right?
6 fingers up for 6 Pack USA!
