Hi, I went and survived! I finally did it! I went to my first Zumba class this morning at my curves! It was fun! There were just 3 in my class this morning, I am uncordinated and was worried about keeping up, I did mess up in the beginning (well actually the first 2 songs!) but it was still fun! We discussed it at the end and they tell me that I will get the hang of it and the main thing is to keep moving, which I did The instructor showed me that basic steps, so I will try to go each week and get the steps down!
I also got a new pedometer today (who knows what happened to my old one!) this one is the curves one and it tells steps, miles, as well as calories Yesterday I bought new bathroom scales - I can not read the dial anymore :( My husband tells me to wear my glasses! Anyhow got a digital one that you can save your weight and then it tells you if you have lost or gained or stayed the same! Clever little thing! Anyhow weighed myself when I got it yesterday and this morning was down 1.8 pounds from then, but I weigh in the morning and the first weigh was in the afternoon, so will see what I am tomorrow morning and take that weight, I go back to work tomorrow night for 6 (maybe 7) nightshifts! That will be my challenge as I will be away from home for a week!
I was looking at the goals that I had originally set in my fitness tracker and I am already over double the calories that I had set to burn each week as well I am over the minutes I had set for the week, may need to revise those goals!
After my Zumba, met my husband for lunch at Wendy's - had the new berry almond salad (half size) with the wild berry iced tea - a total of 340 calories! It was yummy and refreshing
If it wasn't for the fact that it is 93 degrees outside, I would take a walk. Fortunately we live at 5000 ft so it cools in the evenings.....will aim to take that walk this evening when the temp cools off.
Hope that you are all having a great summers day too!
