DietBet Day #2 / Zumba Day #2

Weighed in: 176.5

I’m down 3 lbs. That may seem like a lot, but my weight flucuates so much. I’m just trying to get it into the 50s by September and 20s by Spring. I think it’s doable, but I need to keep moving.

Breakfast: Tropical Fruit Smoothie – Frozen Strawberries, Frozen Mango, Frozen Pineapple, Banana, Chia Seed, Rolled Oats, and Rice Milk.

I usually add almond milk, but I’m out, but had some Trader Joe’s rice milk. There was a taste difference, but not enough to complain. What’s your favorite milk alternative?

Lunch: Spicy Black Beans with Organic Tortilla Chips

Dinner: Homemade mini-pizzas w/ wheat thin bread, pasta sauce, shredded mozzarella, mushrooms, and pepporoni.

Today is the first day all week that I’ve eaten meat. I’ve been meal planning ahead of time and they’ve all been mostly vegan recipes. Today was a day I realized I need to keep a food journal. As painful as that sounds, I can’t keep binge eating or eating past the point of full. That’s why I am like I am!

Zumba was great, I sweat even more because it was a toning class. My arms are going to be sore in the mornin’.

I know my caloric intake was high today, so, I don’t plan on seeing a drastic weight drop like I did today. But, I have 26 days left to lose my 4%.

How’s your workouts today? This weeek? Next week I’m planning on tracking all my miles/minutes worked. So, I can see how many calories I’m burning. Any good apps/websites I should know about?



DietBet Day #1 / Zumba #1

Went to Zumba today. I was a first timer. My mom joined me for the journey, it was exciting!

I wasn’t sure how intense it would be, but it kicked rear into gear. This was exactly what I needed. My mom and I can’t wait to go back! It was fun “dancing” while working out. I can tell you one thing, my abs are going “I do exist, I do exist!”

Today was also Day 1 of Sara Fit’s DietBet. I told my mother about it and she said that was gambling. I should have said I’m gambling with my life every day, I don’t work to get fit and lose some weight.


I’m weighing in at: 179.5… What a gross and high number for me. It’s been awhile since I’ve been that big. Working as a waitress is how I lost a lot of weight. Having a desk job isn’t helping. But, that’s why I signed up for Sarah’s DietBet. I call it a kick┬ástart to losing weight! The basics are: 1) Put x amount of dollars into a pool. 2) Lose at least 4% of your weight, and then 3) Hopefully collect the money back plus part of the pool of people who didn’t lose the weight.

So, there, I found something I like better than some of the videos out on the inter-webs. I just have to make sure I have time to run/walk and Zumba my way to a better, healthier, more fulfilling lifestyle!
