Ack! You too!?!?!

Yeah, me too.  I  have climbed up on the healthy lifestyle band wagon.  I started going to Zumba three weeks ago–yes that means before the holidays.  I really like it.  And let me tell you—it is a work out!  I know that if I attend an exercise class then I am more likely to keep up with the exercise vs. saying I am going to walk at home, or use one of the numerous exercise videos that I have bought.  My sofa is a siren–it calls to me—Come sit on me, check your e-mail, watch re-runs of Law and Order:Special Victims Unit  (read that with a whispery, singing voice)
So, back to my tale, I have been going to Zumba.  And, now I need to make the healthier eating leap.  But that is really harder to me because, in case I haven’t mentioned it, I like food.  Particularly, sweets.  And I like to cook, and then eat, and try new recipes, and taste them.  (sigh) so, I am working on the eating thing.  Maybe I’ll just go to an extra Zumba class so that I can continue to indulge in my love affair with doughnuts. 
And, now, I have promised/committed with my friend Rita that I will partner with her.  We have each committed to lose 30 pounds in the next three months.  We are going to hold each other accountable.  Which this is a good thing because otherwise it is sooooooo easy for me to say—forget it, gimmee that cake!  did I mention that I really like sweets?  And I have many, many new recipes pinned on Pinterest. 
maybe I need to start focusing my pins on craft projects I want to make.  That would definitely be better.  Yeah, channel my love for food into creating—anyone need a scarf?

  1. Raising my hand!!!! You offering a scarf to the first person to comment? 🙂 I, uh, kind of have a problem with scarves… I think just one more would help me. Ha!Wow! I am impressed with your Zumba-ing and healthy eating!!! I watch Zumba videos and wonder HOW IN THE WORLD would my body know how to do those moves??? But, it sure does look FUN!!! I need to get a Zumba video and try it out in the privacy of my home before EVER trying it out in public for the first time!!!
