~Operation Mickey Mouse...getting myself fit and toned for our December Disney trip~
emoticon Water ~ 64 oz.

emoticon Fruits/Veggies ~ 9 servings

emoticon Cardio ~ 35 min. Turbo Jam Leanr & Burn DVD 275 cals burned

emoticon ST ~ Upper Body & Running ST

emoticon Binges ~ nada...none and stayed out of the crap ~ 5 day streak
I decided to put my run off until tomorrow when its a tish warmer with much calmer winds. Call me a wimp but I'm just not quite ready to "go there" yet. So for my cardio I opted to take the cellophane off my Turbo Jam dvd and give it my best shot. I am not coordinated people. Not one lick. I have always hated dancing and choreographed stuff like this makes my skin crawl and I woul;d rather have my eye lashes plucked out slowly one at a time. BUT, I have stepped outside my comfort zone somuch this year, whats one more thing.

I went through Chalene's primer on how to do the 11 main moves and proceeded with the Learn & Burn. It was actually fun and I think that as I do this routine, it will start to come to me. I am hoping that one day I will not look real ridiculous doing this dvd. Maybe. I think. I did burn calories with the 35 minutes as I wore my Polar F7. I did end up to be pretty sweaty so something was working.

I then did upper body ST followed by my PT Candi running exercises. I have another PT session tomorrow morning and I think that I will need just another week of PT as my heel is feeling alot better. I plan on running about 3-4 miles after work and THAT will give me double digit mileage this week.

My eating was once again superb today with zilcho binges. I will give myself an A+ once again and also a pat on the back. The weekend is coming quickly and that will be perhaps a challenge but I will make it through. I am determined and I will just keep reminding myself that I rawk.

Until tomorrow's riveting installment to Operation MM...

    That's so funny because I left Turbo Jam in the wrapper for almost a year before I tried it. Now I'm a junkie. It's so funny I found you because I wrote a blog about it today. Check it out.

    Sounds like another great day to me! And I bet you'll be looking like one of the people in the video in no time. The reason those people always look so good with that choreographed stuff is that they practice. The more you do it, the easier it gets!

    emoticon on your binge freek streak!!!! emoticon emoticon

    I love Turbo Jam. Laurie, the more you do the better you get and more you will enjoy it. It's soooo much fun! Just like running, I'm sure you didn't love it as much as you do now when you first started.

    Have a great weekend! Happy Halloween! emoticon

    That's how I used to feel at Zumba. At least you're alone in your living room & not in a room full of strangers & mirrors! I still look utterly ridiculous, but I've gotten to the point where I don't care as much. One of the Outlaws is a Turbo junkie; you'd be amazed how many Turbo workouts are available & how many she can do in one day.

    Now for a silly question - can you wear the Garmin 305 indoors as strictly a HRM? I didn't realize you had an F7 too. You & your gizwitchies!

    Keep up the hard work and Mickey won't recognize you.

    That is how I feel at Zumba, but the idea is to keep moving! No matter how silly or foolish you look! And I LOVE it!
