The pants I had on yesterday were baggy... a year ago my legs looked like sausages in them. Every time I walked by a mirror at work it made me smile. And that is a change for me - b/c I'm still overweight. And in the past even with a loss, I'... Read more

That's me... doing my zumba! Now I have to say, it is stinkin' fun :) Seriously! Way more excitement than the elliptical. However, the 2 girls who lead the video are so cute and curvy and bendable! I, on the other hand, not so bendable.... Read more

I asked for some Zumba dvds for Christmas. Ed bought me a pack - Zumba Exhilerate, I think is the name? Anyway, I got in some workouts at work today (I'm a nanny so during nap time I move instead of being a slug) and just now I started my firs... Read more

The title says it all. I'm amazed :) And yes, some how the tables have turned and I'm not dreading my workouts any more! Is it because I've got Anna keeping me accountable?! Or is it just that I'm realizing my body is capable of so much more... Read more

And I was down 2 pounds this morning! Great way to start the weekend. Only bad part is that I think I'm getting sick...have the tell tale sore throat all of the sudden. Blah. But, I'm done work for 2 days. Got my exercise in this morning. ... Read more
