First Zumba Class
The first class was 45 minutes long. At 30 minutes in I was beginning to wonder if this was such a good idea. At 45 minutes, I was glad I went.
I don't know all steps, because, hey, it was my first time! The instructor was super nice. I... Read more
Setting the schedule
Plex and I decided that workout days will be Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. We do travel a bit on weekends, so those days are always iffy at best. That being said, we left Wednesday open as an optional day in case we start travelling on... Read more
Know what helps a stressful day?
Yesterday was stressful at home due to issues I won't get into, but after my workout last night I felt in better control both physically and emotionally. What a wonderful feeling!
Today started out high on the stress level... Read more
First night back at the gym
I decided that I would wait until Thursday to begin the Zumba class. Thursday night classes are 45 minutes, and Monday nights is an hour. I wanted to go in and do something else instead, so tonight we walked.
We explored a little bit, fin... Read more
New adventures are exciting!
I can't begin to tell you how excited I am about having joined the Y. I am really and truly excited! So much so, in fact, that I told Plex I want to go tonight to walk the track, even if it's just for 30 minutes. He's on board, and this to me... Read more
Welp, I did it
Two blogs in a single day! Holy moly!

Not only that, but we have a scheduled appointment Tuesday ... Read more
Week 2 complete
Week 2 of the 5% Winter Challenge has come to and end. How'd I do?
I lost .8 pounds. I'll take that thank you very much. So far that is 3.2 pounds gone. I'm a little behind schedule but not by much. I expect that to be picking up again... Read more
Am I ready for this?
So yesterday I did some research into area gyms. Let me amend that. I did some research into a specific type of exercise class available in my area. Zumba. It's always intrigued me since I first heard of it, and I have a friend who has done ... Read more
Week 1 complete
Sorry I am late getting this posted, but I was travelling this past weekend and didn't have my laptop with me.
Week one of the 5% challenge saw a 2.4 pound reduction in my weight. Yay!!! Weight going downwards is the goal after all. I di... Read more

Hello 2015! What will I bring to you this year?
So far the year has started out with a surprise for me! I ended up losing about 8 pounds over the holiday season, which believe me I am not going to be looking for anytime soon. Sorry, but there will be no missing weight reports filed for thos... Read more
There's an app for that
When I get back to basics, I start out with lots of energy and enthusiasm, which usually drops off after the first month. I'm full of good intentions, strong starts, but not so good on the follow through. This is changing.
You see, when I... Read more
Ooops I did it again
Falling off the wagon is such a strange phrase, or at least I think so. Needless to say, I was a stress eater last night, and I know it. The worst part is that I made the conscious decision to do it.
Long story short, my bank account appe... Read more
Are you worth fighting for?
It's a simple question, but the answer is quite elusive to so many of us. I'm a mom, and there isn't anything I wouldn't do to protect my kids. So why don't I feel the same way about myself?
"Mom's are supposed to sacrifice for their kids... Read more
Head up, shoulders down
Posture says a lot about a person, or so my mother used to tell me. A person who stands straight and tall is a person who is confident in themselves is what she would tell me. Remember trying to walk with a book balanced on your head? I could... Read more
