Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 111

Today Zumba kicked my butt... which I needed. It was a fun energy today though because we had not 1 but 3 instructors there. They all switched off teaching. It was high energy the whole time and I thought I was going to pass out at the end. One of the instructors there was actually my Pilates instructors. She is so great.... just love her. She is so fun. She did some disco songs which was fun. At the end of class she was pushing me really hard (which is good, I need that) but I just didn't have it in me. I think she could tell and she went and got me a bandanna soaked in cold water to help cool my down in the end. She is so thoughtful. It was a good and fun class... but at the end I was so tired and SO starving. Zumba is just such a fun workout. I look forward to it every week and the instructors and the music they play make ALL the difference. It is amazing how red my face gets after I do Zumba... in fact people usually know when I went to Zumba just by looking at my face. I know my co-workers know what workout I did that day depending on red my face is. Even when I went to the cafe today the lady making my salad asked me if I went to Zumba! What the...

It is quarter end this week. I have been SOOOO swamped with work. Especially yesterday. I am supposed to do my own scanning and filing now (which I never had to before) and it is hard for me to find the time to do it because my area is so busy. Busy is good.... I just have a hard time on the days that are overwhelming.

I know I shouldn't get so annoyed... but I have a REALLY hard time when people use fast and testimony meeting as story time.... especially when the story is like 15 minutes. I feel like we all know better and know what the meeting is really about and people still do it anyway. Makes me want to pull my hair out.

It is the season for getting engaged... I have a lot of friends getting engaged these days. I actually know several people having babies too... including my brother and sister in law who just had their baby girl today. I sometimes wonder when it is going to be my season.

 Just Bieber finally hit puberty. He has a new song out and he sounds like Justin Timberlake. I'm not going to lie... I kind of like it.

My week has not been all that super exciting, well there have been a couple of things but I am going to blog about them later. I will end on this note though. From Oct-Dec... I gained a lot of weight. As you know January I made some changes and I reported at the end of that month that I had lost 8 pounds. Not a lot but progress. I am going to be honest and tell you that I have not weighed myself since then, so I have no idea how much progress I have made since then. However, I can tell you this... in September my jeans were really tight and I don't think that I fit into all of my jeans. Well... it only got worse from then on. By the end of October, I was pretty much living in jeggings because they were the only thing I fit into and I really didn't want to break down and buy bigger pants. SAD!! I know!! Even after I lost the 8 pounds... it wasn't a lot. I still didn't fit back into most of my clothes. Well, this last weekend I was starting to actually feel thinner... so I decided to try on some of my jeans that have been collecting dust in my closet. Well guess what? They ALL fit me! Even my smallest pair. And none of them are uncomfortably tight either. GOOD NEWS!!!! I can't tell you how happy this made me. Don't get me wrong, I still have a ways to go before I hit my goal, but I AM making progress which was nice to see. I should weigh myself and see the progress I have actually made since January. I will do that this next week and let you know. Until then, I'm happy about my jeans. :)

Always nice to fit back into clothes again :) I'll be wanting that in a couple months too :) Good job keeping it up at the gym!

Yay! I hate how it is sooooo easy to gain weight and sooooo hard to lose it. Sometimes I want to kill my body. I'm like "HELLO! I'm eating really well and drinking tons of water and working out like crazy, aren't you paying attention??" I wish my healthy lifestyle did anything at all to my weight. sigh.
