I made it through Zumba yesterday.. it was a struggle... I have problems with the left side of my body and it was not cooperating during the class i finished the class still had a good work out (not my usual) by the time i got out of my shower last night i had to put myself to bed my left side didnt want to work anymore... so i laid there watching tv til i was tired by the time i got to work today my left side was at least functioning enough to deal with a 8 hour day... I am home now and can feel it wanting not to move.. but it will just have to wait a little longer before it shuts down

no zumba til tuesday and theat is IF it doesnt get cancelled because of a snow storm that is threatening us again for tuesday wednesday and thursday lol... got to love New england!...
Well if i have to i will pull out a tape or 2 to do... :) dont want my 6 pounds to go away lol
hope all are well :)

It is not a huge thing but i looked at the calendar today and realized i have been exercising and tracking my food for only 2 and 1/2 weeks I will be starting my third week on monday... but since i have started... I have lost and 1 1/2" on my thighs.. and a inch off my waist and today when i stepped on the scale I have offically lost 5 pounds!!!!! Wooohoo!!

I was so happy to finally see tha scale move.. I still have a LONG wayto go but jeez...So after realizing it only has been 2 and a half weeks and 5 pounds lost already along with my measurements going in the right directions... I have come to the conclution that I will be continuing Zumba lol and tracking all my foods and making conscience choice of food every day!! to get back to the old me :) A better me :) It is worth all the pain i have endured so far!

So i will keep you all updated on the progress but that made my day!

another snowy day

Tuesday, January 18, 2011

Well it is snowing here again in good ol new england...Zumba class was cancelled today which is fine i will go tomorrow and i am sure she will kick our asses like the day after the last snowstorm lol...
I went to zumba last night and got talking to my instructor after class to let her know how motvating she is... which brought up the subject of the other instructor who called me fat...Whe i told this to Sallie last night.. and told Sallie after that inscident i wasnt sure i was ever going to come back to the club because of her.. she told me that they have had alot of complaints about her and how nasty she can be...She apoligized for her (which was not needed) i said I was
a teacher myself before all my medical ailments kicked me down.. I am finally able to do something in a class with others.. this was the first and last cless i will attend by that woman who didnt even know me like a hole in the wall.. and she is say shit like that to me.. well if my self esteem was the way it was 2 years ago or even 6 months ago i would have just crawled back in my hole...modivasting people is her job.. telling them they are doing well with a move is what she should have been saying.. if this proffession is to hard for her maybe she needs a new one.. I told Sallie if it wasnt for me blogging and getting the right motivation online i said I probably would not have been back... Sallie said they have heard a ton of complaints on her and the new mangement is aware of this and that they pulled a class from her to add a zumba class...and if she is not careful she will not have any classes at all to teach... Well thank god for that.. now thru this whole conversation there is a young man only a junior in high school 6 ft tall and a little over weight... He has been with Sallie for 3 months and we both shared with her our accomplish ments with her.. i told her i lost 3 pounds in 3 weeks and lost a inch around my waist and thighs.. she was like wow that is awesome and then he says i been with you 3 months and have lost 3 pants sizes!! WTG! he wants to look good for his prom this year and get to a healthy weight.. man I was so proud of him...i hugged him and so didnt sallie,...

So sticking with Zumba and body burn (she is trying to add another body burn class on saturdays right after zumba) which will be fantastic !

Well have to go dig out the car and head to work zumba in the am !! Have a safe and wonderful day!! and thank you all who read my blogs and encourage me to stick with it!! I appreciate it !!


I love Zumba

Sunday, January 16, 2011

I went to Zumba class at 930am and had to be at work for 12..I made to work in plenty of time... but Anywho went to class and had such a blast the more i do the class the more i seem to be able to do... I am making friends which helps the factor of coming back One woman there totally wants to hang out and workout at the gym more with me... I think she is looking for someone to hold her accountable lol. i told her sure lol..Going to become a gym rat anyways LOL
I still cant do jumping jack moves or jump in a circle and a few other things not sure if i ever will be able with all i have going on.. but who would have known i couldnt even walk almost 3 years ago
havent lost any weight this week (have no idea why?) but i alrady have my classes planned out for next week in between working so just keep plowing along

    I talked to my friend (who is here on sparker with me) and asked her to talk to her gym people at Curves to see if they knew of any fibro-approved things for exercise. Oddly enough, they'd never heard of fibromyalgia.

Sounds like this is fun! I was sent a dvd for parapara (Anime style dances from Japan) and was watching it. I think I can do it. The lower half is just step from side to side with the beat and has hand motions for arm exercises. So I'm gonna give that a try.

    there is plenty of was to keep zumba low.... do not bouce when the not jump when they jump....the parts you can do give it your all...each zumba instructor is different.. if they are travelling around the room with something you cant do just walk with them.. make sure you make every arm movement count every waist and hip whittler count and over time you will find something you can do while they jump... i wiggle or something when i cant do something and there are 3 songs that have that in my class and i adapt what i cant do into what i can do so i am still working as hard as them but not hurting myself or causing a flare... The first few classes you are going to fumble thru anyways dont get discourage if you cant figure out how to make it low impact talk to the teacher and she will come up with something you can do...we have such a wide ranges of lvls and ages in my classes that no one ever looks out of place...even when they are doing there own thing :) I hope you give it a try and let me know what you think of it :)
No Zumba today for me :( they cancelled class because of snow :(
meh...oh well i will go tomorrow :)
hope this helps!!

    I have to friend, who is also a sparker, did her first Zumba class at curves the other day and LOVED it. She told me it was high impact though, and my rheumatologist is adamant that my exercises stay as low impact as possible.

Is there a way to low impact it? How do you keep from flaring with it being high?

    omg if you love latin dancing it works your hips waist and then everything else it is high impact but I make a low impact for myself and do high when my body can do the move... it is fun!
