I think I look hot in Zumba, but I really look like someone having a seizure...

Friday, October 26, 2012

Thanks again to everyone who commented on my previous blog. I wanted to make my way around to say thanks individually, but it's been a busy week and I haven't had much time to spend on SP.

But, never fear. I have continued to stay within calorie range since Monday. I have schlepped to the Y two days this week for circuit training, kickboxing, group strength,and Zumba. And I did manage to lose a pound this week, which is a nice surprise. In order to meet my goal of 197 on the 2nd, I have to post a 1.6 pound loss next Friday, which is doable. Any loss next week would be great though as it wold put me at losing 4 weeks in a row!

I do feel a bit better than I did during my last post. Know that I plan to print out every single comment and keep them tucked away in my purse for those moments and days that I start feeling that way again. I still have a hard road to travel, but hopefully each time these moments happen they are fewer and further between.

Last night's workout kicked my fanny. I don't know what was the difference, but I was pouring with sweat after just the group strength. I made it through about half of Zumba at full throttle, but I really had to dial it back at that point for the rest of class. It was so brain wanted to get really into it, but my body just gave up on me. I had a stitch in my side and my legs were just so, so tired...I couldn't make them move as fast as I my brain wanted them to.

I was achy and tired going home last night. And today my right thigh and hip are filing some serious complaints about the treatment they are getting.

It was no different than the two weeks prior except for some slightly different moves in the ST class, so I don't know what was up. And today I am so sleepy and actually feel a little nauseous after my mid-day snack. Yugh.

But it's done and hopefully I can really enjoy the weekend.

To leave on a funny note, I'd like to share these with you (thus the title of this post):

    Thank you dear for a side splitting blog! (not the part about you not feeling so hot though.) I don't know why our bodies do that. Some days we're able to pull full throttle and other days--not so much. Have a great weekend.

    I have never had the guts to try Zumba because I am the queen of un-coordination times 1000. I once spent a week on crutches because of a Sweatin to the Oldies video.

I applaud you for having the stones to get out there and Zumba!

    Doing Zumba is like having a bad hair day. You don't have to look at it. So stay out there and enjoy.

    At last you can Zumba! I look like that during Coach Nicoles Cardio Kickboxing Video! I had to practive the moves in bed at night and then practice putting the feet and the arms moving at the same time!

Finally did well in bed so I got up and danced to a friend's vlog and did the moves I had so much trouble with. I haven't practiced them lately and I think I have to do that video Monday, so I had better start practicing again!!!

Love the posters! And they are so true!

    I nearly peed on myself while reading your entry. AWESOME pictures. I started doing Zumba at a church so nobody could really judge me. We all looked ridiculous, but I swear I have never sweated so much in my life. It must work!
