Family Day!

Saturday, April 12, 2014

I got a really good workout at the gym this morning... accomplishing all my 10K steps as I was walking out the door. After that, we went as a family to an amusement park. The kids had fun and I got another 6K steps in. Great day!

Zumba!

Friday, April 11, 2014

So, I tried Zumba for the first time today... wow... did I feel uncoordinated. I wanted to try it, as everyone says they get a great burn doing it... they were right. I went to the Zumba light class and I was the youngest one there. Those old ladies (and one gent) kicked my butt. It was fun. I will be going again. I'll stick with the light until I get the hang of it. I hope that I'll feel less awkward the more I do it.

I binged last night on cream cheese and bagel chips. Not my proudest moment. I knew I'd pay for the salt and fat on the scale this morning... and I did... alas, I am human and make mistakes. Live and learn.

    They have Zumba at my gym but haven't been able to try it. They also have something called Boqua or something like that. That looks different too.

    I suck at zumba. My hips just dont shake like that and I am certainly not the most graceful person I know. Good for you for trying something new. Glad you had fun. And a binge here and there can sometimes be helpful so kudos to you for not beating yourself up!

    So happy you finally tried it! It does take some getting used to. I would say 4-5 classes and you will feel like a pro. Most moves are variations on the same few. So after awhile even the new ones come to u pretty easy.

Allergies perhaps?

Thursday, April 10, 2014

I find it hard to believe that I could be sick again. My nose is stuffed and my sinuses have some pressure. I've never had allergies before, but I hear you can suddenly get them as you get older. I'm going to try to take an over the counter allergy medication and see how I feel. My throat doesn't hurt. It's all sinuses. Given that the weather is warming up and everything is in bloom, I'm guessing that's my problem.

I work late tonight, as I do every Thursday, so I'm getting as much activity as I can in this morning. Off to the gym I go!

    Yes! Love your positive attitude!!

And you could be developing allergies but you might be getting a sinus infection too. Those suck! I hope you get to feeling better! emoticon

  Yes, it could be allergies. Somehow, for some reason, some people develop them as they get older. Have heard that pregnancy sometimes brings them out (did for me). If nothing over the counter works you may have to see your doctor for a prescription. emoticon
Looks like your weight loss is going okay. Keep up the good work!! emoticon
Enjoy the gym!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Just another day in paradise!

Wednesday, April 09, 2014

At least I wish I was in paradise. I'm feeling like I need a vacation. Not from my routine. I'm loving that I'm on a losing streak and I find myself actually looking forward to the gym each day. I mean a vacation from work. Or at least I'm finding that I need something to look forward to and/or count down towards. When we made the decision that Jeff would stay home with the kids and we'd sell our house, we knew that month to month bills would be tight... and they are. We do live pay check to pay check. We knew that we'd not be able to go on a trip or vacation this year. In anticipation of that we got discounted tickets to our state amusement park- so we'd feel like we had something to do on the weekends with the kids. Now all I can think of is a vacation. Maybe we can do a cheap roadtrip. I do get hotel stays for free- but it's gas, etc. in getting there. Ah well... I'll just keep thinking about that...

Yesterday was kinda a carb heavy day for me. I had wheat pasta for lunch and rice with dinner. It's not often that I eat that many carbs. Today will be more veggie/fruit friendly. I'm doing better with my water intake. And another success for the day- even though the scale went up, it wasn't by much... and... I didn't freak out about it! That was my biggest fear with weighing daily. I know that your weight can fluctuate every day, but I was worried about how it would impact my overall outlook. I'm totally fine! I'm still doing good! I'm down 23 pounds total on this journey and more importantly, my lifestyle has changed! I feel good! I'm looking forward to my workouts! Life is great!

    You have an awesome attitude about your weight loss! Congrats on all you've lost so far. As for planning a vacation, maybe you could gear up for a 5K or something like that. They're pretty cheap and would give you something to count down to. Just an idea... it's something I'm doing... Planning on jogging the Color Run in September and it's really pumping me up. emoticon emoticon

    I think it's awesome that your hubby stays home with the kids. It must suck though. No vacay emoticon Amusement parks are so fun though so at least you guys do have that!

And you are killing it on the eating right and losing train! I bet the gain was just due to water weight because of the extra carbs. I bet it will be back down in no time. Keep up the hard work! It's worth it!
