Done with hibernation

Okay, so we have had plenty of snow days here in the south and I cannot believe I am going to say this, but, "I am tired of the snow days already!" Yes, me who loves the snow days, needs to get back in her routine and get back to feeling better. We had four and half snow days this last week...........meaning we went to school a half day last week! Yes, I enjoyed every minute, but am seriously tired of being stuck in the house. I missed three zumba classes!! I don't like that! AT ALL! I have become quite addicted actually. Oh, my food addiction is still quite healthy, don't worry, but I like that I'm putting exercise at the top of my list these days.

So, now that hibernation is over for me, or at least I hope so.....I need to get back on track...........eating wise and zumba wise. We (two close friends and myself) are going to try to do zumba at least five times this week. We use the zumba DVDs at school on Mondays and Wednesdays. On Mondays I also go to a zumba class. Tuesdays are free, but thinking about going to a new one. Wed. at school as I just said. THursday is the same instructor as Mondays class and Fridays an instructor who likes to push the limits. I really like her. I don't know that I could do her class everyday of the week, but would love it she had classes I could go to everyday of the week.......just to see if I could push myself. This instructor is such an inspiration. She has lost 80 pounds doing zumba and eating healthy. I cannot imagine this hyper, thin, spunky happy girl ever being 80 pounds heavier. She is by far the bounciest person I have ever seen. I just think my body could ever do what hers does.........because she's in her late 20s and I'm in my middle 40s, but gonna give it a shot. My biggest obstacle is no longer my weight or stamina even, its the boobs. Yep the girls get in the way and weigh me down. I did just by an Enell sports bra and have only been once........but like it already. Can actually jump around a lot more now.

So, now its on to eating right. I have got to quit taking the easy road. Yes when you work full time its far easier to run through a drive thru and pick up something, or order out at lunch everyday.............but I have got to quit being lazy and plan ahead. I ALWAYS do amazing when I cook ahead and take leftovers for work. So why don't I? Just lazy. Pure and simple. So, I have got to resign myself to do that. My other obstacle that I USE as an excuse is the fact that I get in a rut and cook the same old things. So, I have got to do some research and get some fresh ideas. The easier the better of course, because too many "foo foo" ingredients and I'm not going to cook it! Pure and simple!

I am also ready for the weather to clear. I have a week old grandbaby and I need better weather so I can go see her! Actually, been trying to give mommy and daddy some alone time. Know the other grandparents are hovering because they live in the same city and I refuse to be like them. SO, gonna go next weekend and try and spoil a little!!!

Okay, that's all for the day!

It is so easy to grab dinner after work. I've been doing the same. I work 9-5, most days I miss lunch. Always something going on at night too, so get home at 5 and just toss something. God I'm stupid!

One of the ladies I work with always brings her lunch to work. Always something healthy too. Veg soup, homemade of course, or something else nummy. I grab the bagel or pumpkin muffin top one of the other girls bring. I need to plan ahead too. Always have something at work for the days I can't get home.

No way I'm going to Zumba, but I can plan ahead! We can do this....sometimes that's easier to believe than others!
