Yeah, that feeling.
And she smiled the whole time and left really sweaty and said that she loved it and had an awesome time and would love to come to my class all the time if she could.
I wouldn’t be happier if Beto himself came to my class and said he liked it.
adriennedoeslife said: Just me being nosy, but do you count calories or follow a special diet or intuitive eat? You seem to do a great job at staying in shape, working out well, and being balanced so I was just curious!
That’s so nice of you to say!
I am….hmmm what am I doing. Good question. haha
When I read Intuitive Eating last year, I was overwhelmed at seeing myself on every page of that book. It revealed to me how disordered my relationship with food is and how deeply I’ve been entrenched in “diet culture.” And I want out! I don’t want every day to be a battle with food. I don’t want to live that cycle of restriction and bingeing anymore.
So I’m trying to eat more intuitively: eating when I’m hungry, stopping when I’m full, eating things that make me happy and satisfy my cravings - no foods are off limits because that only makes me want them more. And for now I’m also counting calories and tracking what I eat on My Fitness Pal, mostly because I want to make sure I’m fueling myself for the workouts I do. I want to get to a place where I don’t have to do that. We’ll see. :)
Hi guys! This week is great, isn’t it? Well, mine is! I hope yours is too. I’m just really happy up in here. :)
Let’s get this weigh-in business out of the way. I hadn’t weighed myself since mid-July when our scale died. In that time, I gained 5lbs. That’s what the scale said on Saturday when it came in the mail and I got it set up to sync with my phone. Of course I’m disappointed I wasn’t able to maintain without a scale around…but not terribly surprised. Anywho, as of this morning I’d lost one of those pounds.
The FUN part of this post is that today is totally Zumbalicious. I was able to go to Janefer’s class this morning and stayed for her Body Blitz class afterwards. And THEN after everyone else left, I got to jam with Janefer! She showed me a new Soca routine she’s working on and then we reviewed the routines we learned at the jam session a couple weeks ago. It was fun! We danced for about an hour.
So that’s 2 hours of Zumba.
And tonight I’m subbing a class at the West Y which is ANOTHER hour of Zumba. Bopbopshabop! I’m psyched! And already a little tired thinking about it… ;)

Because I hate him!!!!
No just kidding. ;)
Jeremy works 3rd shift. So 5 nights a week, he’s at work while I’m in bed. And vice versa.
He has Sundays & Mondays off. He stays up all day on Sunday so he can sleep with the dogs and I on Sunday night. And that’s the only night we’re all in bed together because on Monday night, he has to reset his schedule so he tries to stay up all night again. I don’t know how he does it!
I used to try to eat as little as possible in the morning…or the lowest calorie things I could find…in order to save more calories for lunch and snacks.
Breakfast sets the tone for the day. Will I be in control and satisfied or a bingeing rage monster? Breakfast decides! And this morning my tummy is full of bacon, an egg, delicious yogurt & strawberries and some multigrain cheerios. Happy happy!
Last night’s Body Blitz/Zumba combination went well. I had 3 Zumba ladies show up to take Body Blitz with me and then we talked a couple more into it right before class. We had a sub for BB and I liked her a lot. She did this whole segment with exercise balls that was challenging but fun - and completely ungraceful, but who cares. ;) Today I can sure feel my buns, hun.
I’m cautiously optimistic that Angie will be back for Body Design tonight. Please please please!!
