There's something I love about flowers, in all their stages. Even as they fade away.
I have felt so energetic and happy all day. I really can't explain why. I was disappointed when I stepped on the scale today and weighed the same as last Saturday. But it didn't defeat me. I am 15 lbs down in a month and I wish it was moving faster but this past week I have seen the inches change,and my clothes feel looser, so I can live with not losing a single pound this week, I guess.
I went to Zumba this morning and enjoy it so much! I've been doing it about 3 weeks now, 2-3 times a week, and I can see my progress. I'm able to jump more and feel less tired at the end of the hour. There are also improvements in my range of motion - woo hoo!
Outside of Zumba I didn't run much this week so I decided to skip a week at timing my mile. Last Friday, I got my mile down to 12:30, still working on getting it lower but that was almost a full minute less than the previous week's 13:20.
Yesterday, I did the fit test for Insanity - it kicked my butt, lol. I actually did better than I thought I would. I decided to do that 25 minutes test every day for a week before actually starting the program. So today, I not only had my hour of zumba, but also the 25 minute insanity test.
My biggest problem area is my lower stomach, that part below the belly button, I have had many surgeries and aside from the scars I have found it a very hard area to "fix". Well, planks and burpees are helping! Why have I never tried them before?! lol
My goal for this week is to move more. Every single day, for this one week, I want to do something. Mon, Thurs & Sat are taken care of with Zumba. :) And the insanity challenge. Great week ahead!
