We went Salsa dancing last night, which I LOVE to do and have no idea HOW to do it! But it is so much fun! We went to the lesson before and man was I sweating balls! You have to get so close to these guys and I am thinking, I feel like a sweat bucket, I hope I don't look like one! But I did! Oh well! It was fun anyways and I looks like I burned over 1100 calories last night! I got on the scale this morning and had lost 2lbs!
I think I am going to trade my Monday night Zumba class for a Salsa lesson in L.A. The guy who was teaching us was the Salsa instructor from Dancing with the Stars. He kinda creeped me out a little though because he was really touchy and kinda undressed you with his eyes. He is one of those! He was nice, well of course! But just a little odd. Good knowledge though but he teaches really fast for a beginner class.
So anyhow, just wanted to share. I can't believe I have just 8.5 pounds to go to get to my mini goal! I have about 10 more days...But, I think if I lose 3 pounds and get under 200, that will be a great birthday gift to myself!
If you haven't tried it yet, Salsa is a great cardio activity that is so fun! And you will definately get a good workout and be a sweaty Betty like me!

I went to spining on Tuesday, walked my moms dogs on Wednesday, worked until 10:30p last night but didn't exercise and am trying to figure out when I am going to exercise today! I think I am going to bail on Happy Hour tonight and go to the gym instead. I was going to go with my best friend from high school who I haven't seen in 2 years, but I am thinking that the drinks, spending money, etc. is not worth it right now for me. I have 5 months to get myself together and lose 20 lbs so I can get less expensive health insurance. I have to be under 188 to qualify for the lower rate.
Yes, I am going to bail. It is decided. I will see her on my birthday anyhow, so it's not a total lost cause. We gotta do the things that are best for us, right? Right!
Okay, so I'm NOT going to be a slacker!!!

I have been taking a weekly spinning classes for about the last month. The instructor is great and I about DIED last night! I missed last week because I had an appointment for work and the class starts at 5pm. So this week was terribly difficult. Also, I hurt my quad on Sunday getting up somehow and it was a little taxing on that muscle.
My brother is having surgery today for Kidney Stones, he is just 27. Everything is supposed to go easy breezy today and it is an outpatient surgery. Since I will be at the hospital this after noon about 1.5 hours away from home, I won't get to go to the gym. But, I will take my mom's dogs for a walk tonight, at least 30 minutes. Maybe my mom will come with us!
I think I am going to have to go to the 6am class tomorrow morning at the gym since there aren't any classes I like on Thursday afternoons. My goal is to put in 5 days of exercise this week. I am only at one, today makes two, Thursday three and I will need to go Friday and Saturday. Very doable!
Have a great day!
P.S. I am up 0.5lbs today. I think it's due to my spinning class last night. I drank 9 glasses of H2O, which is a lot for me. Although I didn't have to go to the ladies room that often, might be retaining water for the sore muscles!

Thanks guys for all the positive encouragement and you were all right! I weighed myself this morning and I was down 2lbs! Yeah! I have about 3 weeks or so to get to my mini goal of getting below 195 before my 30th. That means I would have to lose about 3lbs a week. I think I will be uber content if I am under 200! So realistically, I am looking at losing 5lbs. in 3 weeks, which is TOTALLY doable!
I feel like I have my head back on straight and I am so happy about that! It is amazing what a difference little things in life make and I am glad that I have SP to turn to. I hope you all have a great day. If you are in sunny California like me, try and keep cool and stay away from the fires!
Much happiness to you all!

So I have a habit of weighing myself every morning. This morning, I was at 206. Yesterday I was at 204.5! I think I am retaining water in my muscles from the 5K on Saturday. I feel a little swollen. We will have to see what happens tomorrow.
I know that I can flucuate about 1-2 pounds on any given day if I am eating within my calories. If I am not, I can flucuate 5-7 pounds on any given day. I am not going to hit the panic button just yet, but I need to make sure that I am watching my water, salt and caffeine intake over the next week. It may very well affect my weight loss. I also only got about 5 hours of sleep last night. That may have impacted it as well. Hmmm...we will see!
