Hmmmm...I didn't know it would be that fun

Tuesday, May 03, 2011

So today I was doing my usual routine when I got home from bringing my husband to work. Normally I just sit and watch a little tv and relax, I had to close at work tonight and he had to work early so I was pretty tired. For the first time in a long time I only managed to do that for about 30 minutes, I was very restless and my hip was bugging me.

Today instead of spending the rest of my time watching tv and being a lazy bum I got up and put in the Zumba fitness game that my husband got me for the xbox. Although I didn't get every step right I was able to complete 4 songs and it was so much fun!! I just put that exercise in the fitness tracker and I couldn't believe how many calories I burned in just those few songs! After I finished with that game (I was a little breathless) I put in the biggest loser game that my husband also got me for the xbox, and I did some yoga!!!

I have been slowly losing weight since I have been on my blood pressure meds and I am feeling more energetic and this is very encouraging. I just wish I could figure out what it is that will give me that one last push and where I will just take the steps I need to take to reach my goals.

I work with a great woman who is an inspiration, not even a year ago she started working on losing weight and she has gone from about a 22/20 to a 12/14! She mainly just counts her calories and goes to the gym for zumba classes.

    Angi- No it was the second but I have had them for months LOL. I would love it if you come up and play them with me :)

    Audra-I think so!!! Not quite ready for the whole going to the classes yet but getting there.

    IAMAHOTMAMA and MNABOY: I encourage you both to start!!! It is tons of fun and you just have to remember to dance like no one is watching! It's ok if you miss a few steps because you are still moving and that's what counts!

    I got Zumba a couple weeks ago and haven;t used it yet. I am so scared as I have no coordination and two left feet, but after your post I am going to try it out today.
