Since writing my last blog, and seeing the power that my words can have. I have felt and been doing better. My weight hasn't budged BUT, I am at the gym giving it my all and working out. I am surpassing my calories to burn target regularly and I am tracking what I eat and making better choices. I am very excited that good things are on the horizon for me, they just have to be.
I have been aiming for a 300 calorie burn in 30 minutes or a 500 calorie burn in an hour or so. I have been tracking this with my HRM and it is so motivating and I have to admitt, excersicing is becoming addicting. (That is a BIG Step for me!) The other day I was having my own little dance party on the ellipitical machine, just letting the myself melt into the music and have a good time.
I am getting Zumba 2 for the Wii and I am excited. It should be a good workout for when I can't get a workout in. I am also, under my own power, going to check out a live Zumba class on Wednesdays while James and Johnathon are at soccer practice. I am really excited and hopeful. I have heard great things about Zumba and it looks hard, but not undoable. I am very sure I will look like I have 2 left feet but if I am having a good time, then I think it is worth it.
I'll check back in after my class, next week. I am hopeful for some better numbers. My weigh in results for the week are:
I want this, I need this and I will achieve this!
