Sharee I need advice for the past two weeks I've been eating so unhealthy. The problem is usually I waste about $150 for 1 week of healthy food for myself and bf. I know you've mentioned before how cheap your groceries come out too? What's some advice on what to buy? I just got let go of my job so clearly wasting $150 every week has become impossible. And I want to continue eating healthy but unhealthy food is just so much cheaper

So what helps dre and I keep our bill under control is planning.
It’s easy to head to grocery store and BUY ALL THE HEALTHY THINGS!! But healthy food (and junk food) can add up quick!
So I find the more we plan the less we spend.

So before you go shopping, sit down with your bf and plan out all your meals and snacks for the week. Healthy doesn’t have to equal gourmet. So keep it simple. Save the really extravagant meals for special occasions or date nights.
Keep the base of your weekly meals the same and add sides that can change things up.

Oatmeal and granola make great breakfast bases. You can add fruits, peanut butter, and spices to change the flavors incase you don’t want the same thing in the morning.

Lunch, wraps are really easy to make and can have lots of varieties. So plan for a week of wraps for lunch and buy different things for wraps (spinach, carrots, hummus, etc)

Dinner:
Brown rice is very versatile and can be added to many things to keep it fun (veggie stir fry, baked chicken) etc. And last nights rice can be placed into a wrap for the next day to make a burrito style wrap.

My menu/ shopping list:

Breakfast:
-oats
- apples
- bananas
- frozen blueberries
- peanut butter
(I mix up the flavors in the morning so I don’t get bored with oats)

Snacks:
- fruits ( buy fruits in season. They will be cheaper)
- protein bars: I look for the 10/10 sales (Luna and cliff bars typically have these sales)

Lunch:
Tortillas for wraps
Spinach (can be used for salads too)
Lettuce
Carrots
Hummus
Or other spread of choice
Deli meats if you eat them

Dinner:
- brown rice
- large bags of prep veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots)
- dre likes chicken breast so we bake a bunch and then I can use it for his lunch wraps if he wants.

Other options:
- bread: sandwiches for lunch or breakfast toast
- mixed nuts (great for a snack)
- soy milk/milk for making smoothies with the fruit you buy

I recently started to work out and afterwards I started to feel sick to my stomach like wanting to vomit (and I actually did 3x) I'm eating healthy. I was wondering could this change of routine make me feel this way bc I'm not use to it?

It depends, it could either be your endorphins rushing and your body not knowing how to respond or it could be a result of your body adjusting to new nutrition. and it could be that your eating too soon to your workout.
You should allow 60+ between food and exercise.

Your body will adjust to both nutrition and exercise. But make sure you’re taking breaks when you need them and that your drinking plenty of water.

Just wanted to say that after following you for so long and seeing how important Zumba is to you and how everyone should give it a try, I finally did that and I absolutely loved it!! Thanks for always being my inspiration!!

Yay! I am so excited and proud of you!! I need to find a gym to teach at, I’m going Zumba withdrawal crazy!!

do you ever think of competing?

I have! It’s actually a goal of mine. I would love to compete in a bikini comp. Once my work schedule settles down and I get things completed (like my thesis) I am going to hunt for a coach and go for it!
