Catching Up...

Well, my laptop is fixed and am way behind in my blog :/ so doing some catching up here....
Jazzercise held a competition that started March 7th and ended in May....I won!! Within that time frame I lost 18 pounds and 9 1/2 inches :) I am SO excited! I am now at a 36 pound weight loss; not sure how many total inches because I kept losing my paper that I wrote down measurements on :/ 
I will be signing up for my first 5K within the next few days :) SO excited about it. I will be in MI visiting family and there happens to be a 5K while I am there! I hope to do well, I guess I better get going on the running thing...lol its been toooo hot though! 
Like I said previously, I am traveling to MI next month. I will be driving alone with the kids'. I am VERY excited about going and being able to drive :) I will be stopping overnight and taking the kids swimming to tire them out along the way...lol I love going on long driving trips, the scenery and singing loud with the radio....I can't wait :) Jason is against the kids' on an airplane (which stinks because Joey would LOVE to fly on one), so thats why I am driving, which is totally fine :) maybe one day when the kids' are older.
I better get Lillianne down for a nap or she won't be happy later...lol 

tata for now!

I Made It!

Another weigh-in has come and gone on Monday and I lost another pound. While its exciting to have a weight loss instead of a weight gain I can't help myself to wonder why I can't get big numbers like on Biggest Loser. Jason says its because they workout like six hours a day and have trainers all the time. True, I said. Anyways, I have lost 30 so far since starting Jazzercise and am fitting into clothes I haven't been able to wear in a while. I also went through all my clothes and am getting rid of three garbage bags full of clothes that are too big or just don't look right on me anymore (clothes I was hanging onto but am too old to wear anymore...lol). That was SO exciting to do :) now I need new clothes and am going shopping this weekend for a Easter outfit. I went a few weekends ago and bought a new workout outfit and it is a size L!!!! I did the happy dance in the dressing room...lol Well, I think that is all for now.....oh wait its not. I have been trying new recipes too and while its fun to try new things its not so fun when it don't taste good...haha! but they have been healthier and my portion sizes have been doing well too :) finally! tata....

Weightloss Update

I had my weigh-in last night for Jazz It Off and lost another 2lbs!!! SO excited because the week before I only lost .4lbs :( I have now lost a total of 24.6lbs since I started Jazzercise and have lost a total of 7.4 since Jazz It Off started :) I think I am getting this nutrition thing down finally. I have already cut out cheese, now on the hard part-which is breads.....I <3 breads! lol....Anyways, just wanted to blog my update and that I am looking forward to dress shopping soon for Mothers' Day :)

Quote of the Day...

"You can tell me that you choose not to. You can tell me that you choose to quit, that you choose to be less than what you are and what God intended, but don’t EVER tell me that you can’t do it!"

So I went Jogging....lol

It was just this past Saturday, the weather was perfect for a nice jog (darn it!). I say that because, well I am not a runner; never have been and not sure if I ever will be and I am okay with that. I have done so much that is not new to me but haven't done in years that if running doesn't work out I am fine with that. Anyways, so I get my ipod ready, ear plugs are in, as I leave my driveway both nervous and a little apprehensive I may not be able to do this Pandora Radio starts and Brittany Spears comes on-you know the song "Hold It Against Me." As I hear the beat of this song I knew right away what it was.....yes, people its a JAZZERCISE song!! Coincidence, I think not! Yes, my fabulous husband said to me just before I went out the door-"honey, shouldn't you stretch first?" and "I will call you in a bit to check on you." So, I did stretch and said okay thanks. Its when that song came on that I realized there is no going back now! (I wouldn't have but you know). At that moment, I felt I could do anything, so I did. I jogged my heart out, and walked too because hello I said I wasn't a runner...lol! As I sit here now (a little teary eyed...lol) I am so proud of myself for going out there and doing my best! I heard plenty of other Jazzercise songs throughout my experience that helped me through what turned out to be not so bad :)

Jazzercise and Me

Tonight I attended my 50th Jazzercise class for 2011!!! How exciting is that :) And I lost 2lbs. last week. I had my weigh-in today for Jazz it Off and was so excited to see a 2lb weight loss. I am so happy I joined jazzercise. Its been a HUGE part of my life now and still working on the food portion (darn food taste too good!). My family and I have been walking after dinner too. And my fellow Jazzercisers' bought me new Jazzercise gear :) I almost cried because I loved it SO much! Jogging is still an issue though...lol will get there some time. more on that later....

I recently learned about geocaching and was interested in trying this out. What is geocaching? its a world wide scavenger hunt type of activity. So, I downloaded the app onto my iPhone and my family and I went out to search for treasure near by :) This was our first time-obviously-so we were looking every where but where we needed to be. We followed the gps and was "standing" on it...lol but we couldn't see it and ended up walking all around the treasure...lol anyways, when we found it we were like, "Ooooh!" lol...can't wait to do it again-I have to get new coordinates for another geocache because it was moved :( so yes we were looking for something that wasn't even there...lol oh well, I wonder what people think as they drive by and see us all wondering around?
