Tonight was the first time I had been in the group exercise room at the Y, with its three walls of full length mirrors, in two weeks. The last few times I'd been there, I'd felt really fat with my muffin top hanging out over the top of even my stretchiest workout pants. Tonight I noticed I'm looking much better -- there's finally an appreciable visual difference to my 8.6 pound weight loss, which makes me feel good.
I think the Zumba class I went to was the best one I've ever been to. First I was surprised with it being my favorite instructor, even though this wasn't her week. Then we did several of my favorite dances, including two extras that earned me another AP! I was even able to do the "advanced" moves every time she did them, so I can tell I'm getting fitter. That class really made my night.
My lunch today was a splurge at a local pizza place with a dessert, and I could definitely feel it in my stomach during that class. The ham and cheese was probably not the best choice, but oh well, it was tasty, and I have plenty of weekly points/activity points for it.
I'm going out to lunch with a friend tomorrow, and I already have my meal planned out -- a yummy sounding veggie panini on multigrain bread with sundried tomato pesto and provolone. The side choices include fruit, so I should be able to make it out of there tomorrow on plan.
