First time back to Zumba class in MONTHS! It was so much fun, but man it was WORK! I work out a lot, but that's the first time in a very long time I felt juuuust a little nauseated toward the end of the class. Note to self: Mexican food before Zumba is a bad idea, even if it's a couple hours before. (and no, I can't believe I need to be told that either)

Thursday night, HOOPDANCE class!!! I'm so excited I can hardly stand it :)

    For me, Mexican food at any time would be bad. Ha! Good luck with the Zumba. Maybe one day I can do it.

    I do Zumba on the Wii and love it. I have no rhythm so I'm way too shy to try to do it in public.

Hoopdance class sounds very interesting! If they had it available in a Wii game I'd get it. emoticon

Here's another thing I like about Sparkpeople.

Monday, August 29, 2011

On days, like today, when I have VERY little motivation, I still do what I need to do because of Sparkpeople. I log my nutrition, because it's become a habit thanks to Sparkpeople. I still get a little exercise, because I REALLY don't like seeing "0" on the sparkpoints page, and I still do all those other things to get points, for the same reason.

Thanks for motivating me, Sparkpeople!

    Thanks for adding me as your friend. Anytime I start to do something "BAD", I think of how many friends I'll let down.. I really count on them to keep me in line. Now, we can encourage each other!

Another week begins.

Sunday, August 28, 2011

The last full week before school starts. I'm kind of looking forward to that, it'll make scheduling clients easier, and cost less in babysitters, but I'm going to miss the time with my boys.

Today was an awesomely laid back day. I got up, and instead of logging on and spending my usual time on SP and FB, I read an actual book first. Finished it, had lunch, played online a bit, then went for a bike ride. Decided to start another book, then had dinner and went for a walk. It's been soooo nice.

Tomorrow starts the week all over again, clients are picking up again now that summer is ending. YAY! Hope that trend continues.

What a sap I am!

Saturday, August 27, 2011

I admit it, I'm a big emotional dishrag. I get weepy at everything.

Lately I've noticed that I get really teary-eyed, big lump in the throat sappy when I start reading Sparkpeople blogs. I just looooove reading about the success of other sparkpeople members, I love seeing the comments from others cheering them on, and I love adding my own "Attagirl! You can do it!" to the comments. I also get teary at the stumbles, the stresses, the posts about the tough times, because, of course, I can relate. Who cant? What a fantastic community this is. How cool that we can read the words of strangers, and feel like they're friends. It's so nice to know this is a journey we're all on together, and if we reach out to each other, there's always going to be a hand reaching back to us.

Wow...I'm starting to make myself feel all sappy again. Too easy.


I guess I CAN do it.

Thanks to Sparkpeople, I'm figuring out that it's possible to go out to eat, go to fun places like the zoo, go to networking events, and all kinds of other things, and still make good choices. I'm also learning that if I don't always make the best choice possible, it's not the end of the world, or end of my healthy eating, it's just, well, that one meal, that one day. I know that's not earth shatteringly new, but for me, it's kind of a revelation.
