Let's Try This Again!

I can't believe it's been over a year since I posted last. My life has been rather hectic, but I think that MAYBE I can get into a writing routine again. I do have one routine that I've almost nailed. At the beginning of 2012 I started going to the gym again. This time I'm taking classes. On a good week, I go to Zumba on Monday, Thursday, and Saturday. I LOVE Zumba! I've always liked dancing and Zumba is a great way to get a good cardio workout. Here are a couple of pics of me ready to go to Zumba on March 27.
I'm liking the results I'm getting, too. I've lost a little over 10 pounds since the beginning of the year. I'm also noticing that my clothes are fitting better. (You gotta love it when body parts start getting back into the right shape!)

In a couple of weeks I'm going to start seeing a personal trainer at the gym. I had a "test drive" on Wednesday and I liked the trainer I visited with. He was telling me what we could do to help me reach my goal of losing 60 more pounds. It will be good for me to have a pro guiding me in the right direction.

Weekly weigh-ins at work are still on Wednesdays. We are also doing a "Biggest Loser" type deal at work as part of our wellness program. Our final weigh-in for that is on April 16. I've lost 10.3 pounds since January 16. That's almost 5%. I'm hoping to lose at least 3 or 4 more pounds by the final weigh-in. I've been in a "friendly" competition with our benefits specialist during this time. He's an evil, evil man. We have monthly luncheons for our company's charitable organization and he LOVES to bring decadent desserts. He does it on purpose! The other competitors in our "Biggest Loser" group and I got together to get back at him. His favorite candy is Heath. We got together and bought a couple of bags of the fun size ones and hid them all over his office. We also sent them to him through the inter-office mail. He found most of them right away and distributed them amongst us. Every now and then he still finds them in some little nook he didn't check before. I wonder how many he actually ate.... LOL
