Okay - So I have jumped on the Turbo Jam bandwagon and am going to give it a try. I popped it in the first time last night. I am happy to report that unlike years ago when I "tried" tai-bo (by sitting onthe couch eating popcorn telling myself I was 'learning the moves') I got right up and did it. Boy, let me tell you that peppy little blonde had me out of breath in 10 minutes. Whoa!!! If I keep this up I will be a freakin goddess. I will come back and write as I progress.
Hopeful and optimistic....

Sooooooooo... all this fitness stuff must really be rubbing off on me, because I cannot believe I am about to type to the world that I AM RUNNING A 5K! Yup - signed up for it today - no turning back now. It used to be that I would only consider running, say... if a very large animal were chasing me, but now I am actually looking forward to doing this. Geez, I hope I don't look like too much of a loser if my time is not that great. I went out this past weekend to 'train' for the first time (race is on May 30) and I ran 3 miles at 11 minutes per mile. I'm told by my runner boss that is not half bad. I have no idea if she is right or just trying to boost my confidence. In any event, I hope to get out at least once or twice a week to train. It's hard because it's dark when I get home, but I'll try and sneak it in on the weekends. Boy, I'll tell you - I can go forever on the elliptical but get me outside on the pavement and I feel like I have never worked out a day in my life! Fingers crossed that will get better. Well, wish me luck!

Oh yea, baby. I lost 10 lbs! Whoo Hooo. Hear that? Yes, that's me tooting my own darn horn. I am so loving it that when I got dressed this morning my pants were loose. Yay! No more looking like a sausage stuck in a casing (did someone say sausage? mmmmm)!!
I am so proud of myself. February was tough with it being my birthday month and more than a couple special occassions where I decided to cram as much food as possible down my gullet, and two times being sick and not being able to work out for several day-long stretches. And you know what? At the end of the day on the 27th (see previous blog) I DID cave and eat those damn cookies. So don't go thinking I am all that strict with myself. I am just happy that I am still moving forward - albeight slower than I had hoped. I guess I can't expect to step out of the shower one morning looking like Jennifer Aniston now, can I? (An interesting, unrelated side note: do you know that a magazine recently polled 1,000 women if they woudl rather have a miilion dollars or Jennifer Aniston's body, and almost 90% said they woudl take the body! And men think we are all about money, ha!)
I guess I had better get back to work, but thanks for reading and have a great day!
