It has been way too long since I have checked in on my Journey from Muffin Top with Shortmama.
Since joining up with Shortmama I have been much more diligent at thinking about what I am eating... not always adjusting what I am eating, but I feel a little guilty at least when I put that piece of candy in my mouth. I have done a lot better increasing my water intake.
In regards to exercise... well..... cricket cricket. Oh wait I have started doing something, every Wednesday I am doing Zumba! I drug Lourie (CA Girl) along last week and she happily went back with me this week.
I have learned a few things from Zumba.
1) I used to think I could dance-this class makes me feel very white
2) It is not a good idea to eat dinner only 45 minutes before the class starts
3) It is really not a good idea to stuff a cookie into your mouth right before you leave for the class--you will be tasting it the last ten minutes of class.
4) It is a lot of fun and the more I go, the more I am loosening up and getting my grove on
And while I am not there yet, this progress has lead to 5 lbs of weight loss!
If you need that extra motivation or help to lose that muffin top head over to Shortmama's and join up.
