Dancing Queen

Posted by Mandy at 7:18 AM
Well.. maybe not, but I'm trying my best every Monday night. Several of my girlfriends meet up to do Zumba together 5 days a week. I can only get there on Monday night usually, but it's a blast!

If you don't know what Zumba is, it's basically a latin dance-based workout. OMG. It's hard. It's also really fun! (minus the older guy that leads the class.. he's fairly creepy.. and when he speaks in Spanish he uses a really low voice that makes me think he probably used to be a star in a Latin soap opera.)

Can I just say that latin women must be freaks of nature with the way they can shake their hips. It just isn't natural. My non-latin heritage shows.

Since it's Wednesday, I braved the scale this morning. I was 133 last week... and... 132 today! Another pound dropped. I'm really excited, but man.. I'm working so hard! The other day a friend said, "Hey! You look great!" and I said thanks, but was really wishing she'd have said, "Hey! You look so hungry!" Because I am. It's so much more enjoyable to eat all you want and be as full as you want. I keep reminding myself to eat to live, and not live to eat. I'm doing my body a major service by feeding it properly instead of feeding its never-ending hunger with trash.

The water drinking is better, but still isn't where it should be. *sigh* I'll get there.

Finally, pants are starting to fit better again! That's what helps me keep pushing through. I used to live like this and it was easy... it's amazing how a few months of letting it all go can really make it hard to go back to what used to be normal.

Hope you're working towards some healthier goals this week, too!

Well Done!!! You almost motivate me to get rid of this baby bulge...but I think I am way to out of shape to start exercising...seriously.

I have always wondered what Zumba was. I have seen it advertised, now I think it may not be for me... :)
Awesome another pound gone! You are doing so great! Keep up the hard work, we are all rooting for you!

I want to try Zumba but classes here are always on nights when I can't go because of class or church or city league sports. One day.

Until then, P90X is working my ass off. Literally and figuratively!

I keep saying I want to start this but just never do. It seems like a lot of fun!

Oh, we're going to start offering that at the Curves I work, and I'm so excited! It looks like so much fun. I've seen some of those advanced classes, though, and I think those women must be double-jointed - there's no way my body can move like that! lol

I haven't heard from Peace and Craziness in a while. I hope all is well!
