Weight this morning - 196.5. Another lb down. 1 lb is a week isn't that quick but as long as the scale keeps moving in the downward direction, I'm happy.
Latin Heat was freakin' awesome! I still don't know if it's actually Zumba. I've never been to a Zumba class before so there's no way to know for sure. I'd like to go to an official Zumba class sometime so I can compare. Did I look like a dork? Absolutely! As did at least 20 of the other people there. It was a lot of fun though. It didn't seem to be as good as a workout as my step class but I also didn't feel like I was going to pass out in the middle of it either so I enjoyed it more. I think I'm going to make the Latin Heat class a weekly thing for me. My BFF said she'd join me once in awhile too so that's fabulous!
I start my Couch to 5k training today. I found a podcast on itunes that I think will work for me. The music isn't as big of a deal for me as just someone telling me when to run and walk. Most of the pod casts seem to have a lot of techno music and I just don't think I need to feel like I'm clubbin' with the cast of Jersey Shore while I run. I'll let you know how it goes tomorrow. My main goal is just not fall off the treadmill...please God...don't let me fall off the treadmill.
Happy Monday to one and all!
P.S. I live in AZ and as some of you may have heard (it's been all over the national news), a horrible event happened in Tucson over the weekend. 6 people were killed and 14 were injured by a seriously mentally disturbed individual in the name of political craziness. President Obama has asked the nation for a moment of silence at 11 a.m. EST. Please keep the victims and their families in your thoughts. Also, please let this serve as a reminder to everyone that it's OK to disagree and to debate. In fact, it's what our country was built on but it's so important to remember that TV show hosts and newspaper columnists are paid to entertain, increase ratings and readership, and get people riled up. But sometimes, it can give a psycho a cause and I fear that's what happened in this case. It's important to keep it all in perspective.
