I jogged???

Wednesday, May 09, 2012

Yes I did! So yesterday I headed to my zumba class only to get there and find out it was cancelled at the last minute emoticon I was so tempted to turn around and go home, but I did not emoticon. I decided I would go on the treadmill and did Day one of the C25K challenge...and I jogged/walked for 20 min! emoticon a little over a mile and felt great!! (I know MEGA slow but not bad for DAY 1) After that I met DH and DS at the swimming pool, walked in the water and had some fun with the kiddo!! emoticon So it turned out to be an awesome evening! emoticon

Hope you have a terrific day!!

    This is awesome! Love that instead of leaving which is the easier option, you ended up staying and having a great workout! I'm doing c25k too and I love the feeling of accomplishment I get when I finish a new day! Congrats!

Goodbye 140's!!! Hello 130's!!

Monday, May 07, 2012

I have been waiting to write this blog for a looooong time. This am I stepped on the scale, 139.6 wooo hooo!!! I'm finally out of the 140's I was stuck there for a long time. I was surprized because some crappy foods got the best of me this past week!! Anyway I'm hoping to not stay in the 130's for long :)
I have lost a total of 29-30 lbs!! This Saturday I decided I would buy some size 8 jeans that were really cute and cheap, I thought I could fit into them in a month or so...(they looked small lol) so when I tried them on and they FIT I was thrilled!! Woo Hoo!! Me a size 8????

This weekend I also bought a bike, and finally taught my DS how to ride his bike without training wheels!! DH also got a bike so we can all ride together!

Planning for an awesome week!! Hope you have a great week as well!!

My week without Zumba :(

Friday, May 04, 2012

So this week has been pretty hectic so for one reason or another I did not make a single zumba class:( I usually go 3-4 times a week!! I have been doing the boot camp videos, went to toning class, and have managed to stay pretty active all week!! But I realize I NEED zumba class!! So the goal for next week is better time managment....I really have to take advantage of this month (gym wise) because DS will be out of school at the end of the month...then I won't have as much time. Well today I chaperone DS field trip :) Hope you have an awesome Friday!

I'm one LUCKY girl...

Wednesday, April 25, 2012

Yes indeed I am, I have been feeling awesome totally opposite of the lethargic couch potatoe I once was (not very long ago LOL) So this morning I was driving back from taking DH to work, saw the most beautiful sunrise (insert awwww here LOL) and thought WOW I'm one lucky girl. I see gorgeous sunrises almost every morning and rarely do I appreciate them! So this morning while I was at the stop light I just admired it for a few seconds and thought "It' going to be an awesome day" this may seem silly to you but before I started my weight loss journey or better said my healthy lifestyle journey I don't think I was seeing the beauty in things. Sad I know. But I see it now and actually seek it out if its not in plain sight! Good food, good mood I guess. The manicure I got yesterday also helped emoticon had an awesome zumba class although I forgot my hairtie and it was HOT!! On a not so positive note my fridge is not working well... emoticon so I have to figure out if it's worth repairing it or if it is time for a new one. Excited for tommorow my DS will be singing at school for their spring festival!!! He is so awesome! Oh by the way President Obama spent the night in my city last night!! I wonder if he caught a glimpse of the sunrise this am LOL. Anyway have an awesome day remember to seek the beauty in things (even broken appliances) emoticon

    Dear hubby and dear son. DD would be dear daughter :)

Congrats!! I was the same way! I just went through the motions and survived the day but never took time out to see any of the beauty that is all around us. That got better when I quit my job, and it's getting better as I focus on health!

That's cool about the prez - I would love to meet him!
