bad week, shakin it up and clothing expiration dates

Thursday, March 03, 2011

I did really poorly this week. I have a lot of excuses. The dog ate my motivation...I'm not gonna go into it. I am however almost over the cold that kicked my butt for the last few days. I am done house sitting for my parents so I don't have an hour commute to work everyday. Things are good.

Today I did 2 things to help with my journey. Firstly I went through all of my clothes and made a giant donate pile, while doing this I ran across several items that I don't fit in and have kept in hopes that I would lose enough weight to wear them. Lets face it...they have been there for quite awhile. So in hopes that I can further motivate myself I grabbed some sticky tabs and put expiration dates on them. By this date next year if these clothes still don't fit I have to donate them. They are really fantastic clothes and I am really going to hate to have to do that so let's see how it works.

My second adventure of the day was wii Zumba. It was fantastic and it kicked my butt. I thought I was going to die-BUT I was so intent on keeping up with the steps that I didn't really notice that I was done with the 20 minute lesson until we started cooling down. If you have a wii (or i think they have it for xbox kinect too) and like to dance I highly suggest it. It doesn't do a great job of breaking down the steps for anyone that isn't used to dance type work outs but if you just keep moving you will catch on. The instructor does sort of give cues, they are just easy to miss if you aren't looking for them. It was awesome though. Can't wait to do it tomorrow.

So had a minor set back but have overcome it. The show must go on!
