Weigh In & Latin Heat

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.

I have not taken a Zumba class either. I am probably going to buy the DVD set and the PS3 game. Thats should probably due and I can do it in the pricacy of my own home. I am sure it is probaly fun to do it as a group too but oh well. It is very sad what happened in Tuscon. I live in Arizona too. I live in the town of Maricopa. Not for long. I have lived in arizona my entire life and we moved out here last year. It was a change and in a few months we are moving back to the tempe/chandler/mesa area..It just feel smore like home out there!
I also lose on average about a pound a week. I wish it was more like 2 a week but you are right as long as it is moving down!

I'm just so jealous that you're in Onderland but so happy for you at the same time. You're doing AWESOME! :)

And yes- what a tragedy. So sad. :( I have family that is related to Speaker Boehner and it's scary to think about this whole situation.

I got Zumba on Wii for Christmas and I am apparently Zumba impaired :) Count me in on looking like an idiot.

Amen to your comment about keeping debate civil and respectable.

I just love Zumba...that has been the only source of exersize that I have done throughout my journey and I have been fine. I have the videos and I have 2 cousins that come and do it with me and it's so much fun!

Congrats on your weighloss! 1 lb at a time will make a huge difference!

My prayers are out to all those out in AZ. Very sad tragedy. =(

I've not done Zumba yet - I can't wait to go though! I'm been nagging a bunch of my old nags to get out and shake their booty at the local fire hall with me... Shheeeeesh! You'd think I was asking them for a kidney!

Wish I were closer to AZ, I'd be there with YOU!
