Great 2nd Day!

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

Yesterday was a pretty good day. Not as eventful as my New Years, but still a good one!!

Took my time in the morning, had a good breakfast. Did things around the house, then headed for the gym. I wanted to burn 500 calories, so with that goal in mind I headed inside.

I walked in and it was PACKED! I've NEVER seen it like that! But, thankfully, it is a BIG gym, so I was able to snag the last treadmill..phew! Got on there, and did a walk/jog combo, trying to be nice to my knee since I've been running every single day. It worked great, and in 35 minutes, I burned a little over 500 calories (i ran on an incline), and ran about 3.3 miles!

It was about noon at that point, and I saw that a Zumba class was about to start. I tried Zumba over a year ago, and I looked ridiculous, but I thought id give it another shot. Since I was already at 500 calories, I told myself id stay until I burned 700..Okay..the music starts and..I'M TERRIBLE! I look ridiculous, I can barely see the instructor so I cant tell what her feet are doing but..I HAD FUN! Unlike the last time, I just danced my crazy dances, and had a good time. I relaxed, and let myself just enjoy the music and the energy in the room. I stayed for a good 30 minutes (maybe a little more) but I burned 715 calories total for both workouts! I would have stayed longer but the moves were getting crazy, and I was getting hungry.

Left the gym, and headed to panera. Had half a sandwich and cup of soup. I was starving but my stomach didnt want all that food! Ate what I could, went to the market and loaded up on fruit and lunch meat for the work week.

The rest of the day was uneventful, and I'm good with that. I had a happy, healthy day full of exercise. Proud of myself for burning that much!

Now today..is a sad day. Back at work :( only for 3 days, but I will hit over 40 hours because they are completely SLAMMING me. I am going to do my best to get to the gym, but who knows how much energy I will have to work out. UGGGGH. So over my job. It completely takes over my week.

Anyway, have a happy healthy 3rd day of the year my friends. Stay strong, and burn those calories!!

    I think enjoying zumba is more important than how good you look while you're doing it! No worries girl, go have fun!!

    Zumba! Want to try that so badly. Everyone says that it's a great workout. You had a great 2 days. Keep it up. I know it's going to be hard with work, but, you can do this. I'm going to be right there with you, watching you, so you better keep at it!!

    Nice! I hope you can keep the fitness momentum going. I know how tough it can be when you can't get in weekday workouts because of long hours.

    I am very uncoordinated when it comes to Zumba but I still like to do it when they have charity Zumbathons and stuff. It takes me at least 3 songs to "get out of my head" and loosen up a bit, but I still try and have fun with it.
