New Blog

I am back, but not here.

With this new start, I needed a new start for a blog. I was so completely off base here, and It's no longer a challenge. It's now a new lifestyle.

So please join me at

Thank you all, and I can't wait to get back in touch.

How does your pony trot?

Mine's a little spastic, but I don't care. I'm up every day (almost - Thursday is a 9am class) at 5 am, and in the class by 5:30 working my butt off. Oh Yeah! That's me! The one who can't dance, and looks kind of funny no matter what we're doing.  I'm one of the few who don't do my make up or hair before I sweat. I don't need to have a style in my work out clothes, and I really don't care what I look like when I Zumba. Most importantly, I'm damn proud of what I'm doing, even if I look crazy.

I am doing great! I'm seeing results in the mirror. Oh, and I bought a pair of skinny jeans. Ok, so I have a little more to loose before I can REALLY show them off. However, I don't look horrible in them. YAY!!! So I may not be able to do the pony, but as long as my ass keeps looking better, I really don't care.

Motivation? or Sabotage?

While working out and eating right, what is your motivation? Is it coming from the right place? Is it really a motivation, or is sabotage?

My motivation sounds like this: I can do this. I deserve this. I've been working hard lately, and I need this. This is for me.

Sounds pretty good right? It would sound pretty good if it wasn't when I was eating ice cream, cookies, or fatty snacks. I have been talking myself into NOT loosing weight. Isn't that just the dumbest thing you've heard?

For the past 3 weeks, my neighbor and I have gotten up every day at 5am, and gone to the gym. We've tried all the classes offered, and have fallen in love with the variety. We have two cardio/stregnth classes a week, and 2 cardio classes. On Fridays, it's a fun class that teaches a different dance and mixes some cardio with toning. I should be dropping weight like none other.

However, during the past few weeks I find myself making more excuses for sabotage. The worst is that these excuses are the exact reasons why I work out. I should be rewarding myself with seeing my weight drop, not seeing me stuff my face.

Once again, I need refocus my willpower, and the direction of my brain. I love working out, but I need to start to love eating right.
