I jumped on the scale today...no, it's not weigh in day, but I had this overwhelming feeling that I needed to.
Last night I zumba'd for an hour and a half...my instructor, whom I love, was leading the class after my normal class so I stayed. My mind and body needed it! When I got home and I was showering I looked at my tummy and I realized it looked different already and I've only been back to eating right and moving for 2 days. I thought I was losing my mind...turns out, I know my body.
I can tell you that, at this point in my life, 5lbs is very noticeable to me. It may not be noticeable to anyone else, but when I'm standing there in my birthday suit, I can see it. Like I said in my previous blog, it didn't bother me that I could tell, I knew I'd take it off, but I could still tell...apparently I can tell when I work it off too!
I know most of the weight dropped off because of the soda. I drank more soda, regular soda and diet soda, in ten days then I had in months and month prior. I also know that I started eating food that regulated me (sorry, I know it's breakfast time)...so I shouldn't be shocked that the scale is down.
What's the point? The point is really for me...I'm still in a bit of shock that I am at this place in my life. I know that the weight I've lost (61.7 lbs!) will not be coming back...I know that if I go a bit crazy with food for a few days, it's ok cause I'll take it off and I wouldn't go crazy for too long...I know I'm a different person, my priorities have changed. I love to sweat while dancing my butt off (literally)...I love to pick out new clothes...I love to share what I've been able to accomplish to those who ask to try and help others...
Ok, it's close to that week for me, so now I'm tearing up...time to make lunch and get the kiddo's around...thanks for joining me in my emotional mess of a blog today!
Make it a great day all!

You really have to work hard to do that...or not work hard and eat like you are on vacation and that's exactly what I did...
We had some celebrations and some kids sports and Easter suppers...so I just ate...and ate...and ate...and I only Zumba'd 2 times in 10 days. I was not surprised at all that I had gained 5 lbs (ok 4.8).
A funny thing happened though...I realized that, for the first time ever, I really really wasn't worried because I knew I'd take it off. That was very foreign to me. I ALWAYS freaked out when I gained weight...there was ALWAYS an underlying panic, even if on the surface I was ok...not this time. I realized that I'm not a person who's going to continue to put weight on because I had gained 5 lbs...I had become a person who was pretty healthy and ate good and just had a binge week. I realized that my normal was not the way I had been acting for the last 10 days. I realized that I was a person who enjoyed eating in moderation and good for me foods (most of the time) and someone who enjoyed exercising, at least Zumba. This was is who I am now...and for once, I'm not scared.
That's all...that's whats happening with me now...I gained 5lbs, I'm already dropping it, and I can't wait to get back to Zumba...this is me. :)

Usually when I start a blog like that there is some terrible news coming, mostly stating how horrible I've ate over the last two days...while I did blow it yesterday and didn't exactly do well Friday, the big news is that...
Over the last two days I have burned 2454 calories! I Zumba'd yesterday then went for a 4 mile walk with the family. Today, while my 10 year old Zumba'd, I was introduced to the eliptical and I burned away some calories, then my best man friend (a title his fiance gave him for me :) ) came to Zumba with me and I burned 879 calories!!
I feel great! My knee is sore, and I'm sure that it will be hard to walk tomorrow, but I feel great!
I may 'officially' weigh in on Friday and see how I do although I am not really relying on the scale right now, I'm relying on sizes. I bought the size 8 jeans and today bought a size 6 dress, dresses are more forgiving. So, today, I'm happy!!
I just got some pictures from our annual st pats party so I may throw some of those up...I don't see a huge change from last year, but I see a very happy girl blessed with true friends hanging out for the day...and isn't that what life's about?
I hope everyone made it an amazing weekend!

because I was SO horrible for so many days this week, but I did just buy size 8's last night!! Oh yeah, size 8's and a size S shirt!!! So I was curious...
What'd the scale say? 141!!!! I have no idea how that happened, but I'll take it!! :) I'm credit Zumba and lack of soda (you know, the bloated tummy and all)...whatever it is, my new measurement tool is these new size 8s...so long as they fit good, I'm ok!
Make it a great day all!

but I knew I was going to, so I'm ok with that!
I had a taste of size 8's and I want that back...so I will have it back! :D
It was only 3 days but I wouldn't be surprised if I gained 5 pounds, but I feel it...meaning, I feel gross, so I have no doubt I'll take it all off and then some! It was a great weekend, but I like feeling good so I'm looking forward to that!!
I think I'm gonna post a picture that I took of my hair just because it amazes me how different I look...I think I notice it most in my neck and collar bone area...I feel like I look in my 30's (which I am) but in a good way...I don't know how to explain it, that sounds dumb...but it's small things like that that make me think about how much I really have changed...that's a good thing.
I hope everyone makes it a great rest of the weekend and takes care!! On to a new week of eating better and feeling great!!!
