Week Highlights and Hot 100 Update

My gym membership expired on Monday and they aren't going to offer the discounted membership rate until the day after Christmas so I'm going to check out some other gyms in the area and see if I can get a free weekly pass here and there to get me through the next few weeks.

I went to my first ZUMBA class on Tuesday. The city offers free classes at the local senior center so I had a bunch of seniors dancing circles around me. I don't know what got my heart rate up more, the class or laughing so hard at myself. It was a blast. I can't wait to join them again next week. I'm not very graceful but I was definitely got a good workout in.

I did a KILLER workout yesterday that included cardio and a serious weight circuit session. I almost fell when I got out of bed this morning because my calves are killing me *ouch*. I'm definitely feeling the burn and loving it!

Goal #3 - Build More Muscles

I'm getting stronger every single day and excited to see a little definition popping out in my arms.

Only a few more weeks of the Hot 100 to go. How are you doing on your challenge goals? Are you making progress or struggling? Can I pat you on the back or kick you in the ass?

My reader is so out of control and overflowing. I've been doing my best to catch up but you guys keep writing and I keep falling further and further behind. I hope to catch up and get back to commenting regularly soon.

Here in the northeast it's been pretty cold outside but I hope you're keeping it HOT!

Rock on!


  1. I think it's nice when your muscles are hurting, it reminds you that THOSE are the muscles that need help and were finally worked! Of course, getting through the day stinks! Nice to keep seeing that scale drop! Good for you!

  2. I found you through the Hot 100. You are doing great on your goals! Congrats on the weight loss. check out my blog for my update. I too am working on my upper arms and finally seeing some results. It is so exciting!

  3. You have already exceeded your weight loss goal! Congrats! I am doing okay. I was off exercise due to lack of interest for a month or so, but now I'm back.

  4. Great progress:) I tried Zumba on vacation in June and had to laugh at how uncoordinated I was.

  5. Great for muscle building!

    Sometimes with my reader, I just have to close my eyes and press "mark all as read" for sanity sake.

  6. I'm doing C25K too - I'm in Week 2 right now. It's tough, but the good kind of tough. :)

    Way to go, smashing your weight loss goal out of the park!!

  7. Wow great job on the 19 pounds! Sorry about the gym thing, they are all about roping people in at higher rates, huh? I'm sure there are plenty that will give you free weeks though-and maybe you will like another even more than your current place!

  8. You're doing so amazingly!

    I just wanted to pop over and see if you want to be Fitbit friends? You can add me with the email address

    I admit it. In less than a week, I am a complete Fitbit addict.

  9. wow! look at the losses you have racked up! Good job.

  10. you have been doing so well the past few weeks! this time of year is so hard so I think you are doing great!

  11. I guess you have to sign me up for a kick in the ass!
    But I'm so happy to see the progress you've made!! You're really inspiring to me and I aim to join you on the journey.

  12. Zumba rocks! I did it once, loved it, but can't go back until I get over an injury. You've lost some impressive numbers...keep it up, my fellow Hottie!
