Weigh-in Day...and What I'm Thankful For

Goal Weight: 145 lbs

Today's Weight: 140 lbs

Onwards to giving some long overdue thanks...

So, you've heard me go on and on about Zumba...Yeah, I've Zumba'd in Los Angeles, CA.  I've Zumba'd in Orlando, FL.  I've Zumba'd in Monterey, CA.  I've Zumba'd in Napa, CA.

All different instructors.  All different styles and moves.  I guess you could say I'm a promiscuous Zumba-er.  I get around.

What have I learned?

The instructor can make the class FABULOUS or just ho-hum and not too exciting.

I am thankful for having one of the most motivating and FUN Zumba instructors...EVER.

Last night was my Zumba instructor, Anne's, last class teaching for awhile.

As you can see, she's 8+ months pregnant:
When we hugged good-bye last night, I reminded her that she has transformed me from a big T-shirt, baggy sweats wearing 230+ lbs to a now tight tank-top, spandex wearing 140 lbs.

She then reminded me that, no, it wasn't her doing, it was me who did it.


  1. Awesome! I feel the same way about Weight Watcher leaders. There are the fabulous ones and the ones who read out of the book. Snore. :) And, although they inspire us, we have to do the work.

  2. I love that you are Zumba promiscuous. It made me smile.

    Also - congrats on your maintenance week. Looking fantastic and inspiring as usual.

    Also - your pic is SO cute!!

  3. awww, what a cutie! Blessings to her and her new little addition.

  4. So, she is not only fun and motivating, but she is also wise :o)
