I ate a little grilled chicken and salad while my coworkers chowed down on a free fajita lunch with all the fixings! Amazingly, I didn't feel deprived, even though I could practically taste the homemade tortillas. I kept telling myself.... one day, you can have that again -- just not today!

I had a salad with avocado and tomatoes instead of fried food like I normally do when someone makes me cry at work!

I went to my first Zumba class even though I was nervous about looking like a fool. Well I did look like a fool but hopefully not many noticed. It was hard work and I was sweating a lot. I just kept remembering sweat is fat crying.

I am loosing weight for myself not for anyone else.

Don't feel bad about your Zumba class. I took a belly dance class and wasn't paying attention in the veil work area and instead of neatly releasing my veil behind my head, I choked myself with it. They had to stop the class because we were all laughing so hard! Keep up the good work!

I have to deal with mean and hateful customers just about every day and our management is so spineless, they make ameoba look great!~ I have been using my WII game to do boxing and I pretend it is their face. It really helps most days! Thank you for the kind words, it has lifted my spirit today!:carrot:

Small steps,
Thank you for this challenge. This has helped me think what I CAN DO to help myself on this journey. And today's answer was to buy myself roses, not chocolate cookies. Plus, I bought sherbert instead of fast food. Thanks for the challenge = it is really helping me!:carrot:

My small, women only gym closed at the end of June, planning to re-open by the beginning of August at a new location. I had been just doing Turbo Kick with a group from that gym and one of the instructors twice a week until we found out a week ago that it probably is not going to open again. So, I joined a new gym (coed) this week, which would have scared the heck out of me 18 months ago. I took Body Pump and Zumba classes - both for the first time ever. What fun it is to look like a goof in front of 40 strangers!

I went for a hike/partial jog in a nearby metropark (nature preserve in a city). I got lost for 3 hours, making it a total hike of 4+ hours. While it was upsetting at the time, it turns out I burned almost 3,000 calories in that time! WoooHOO!

I exercised for 1 hour and 45 mins on my rest day. I think I'm afraid to stop moving. I tend to let lazy days run together until it kinda gets away from me. When I work out every day I feel like I'm in control. But I did sorta let my body rest since I didn't do a full workout, only about half.
