Week 39: Recap

Yeah, so, about that "downhill slope to one-derland."

Tomorrow is October 1. As of this morning's weigh-in, I did not meet my goal to get to 199 lbs by this date. 

I did, however, reach 205. That's a three-pound loss for the entire month of September, which seems pretty underwhelming after my big loss in August. Buuuut I'm still making progress. I'm getting closer and closer to reaching my goals. I can get under 200 in October. 

Yesterday, Anna and I did another crazy exercise challenge...

Yep. We went to a live Zumba class!

I've had it on my bucket list for years to go to a fitness class, but I've just never had the guts to do it. You know how those kinda classes are in exercise DVDs. It's always a bunch of midriff-baring, super-attractive women and a token gay guy doing the moves in perfect synch without producing the tiniest sweat droplet. That image always surfaces when I consider going to an exercise class, so naturally, I always talk myself out of it.

Well, I faced my fears yesterday and just did it. AND. I. FREAKING. LOVED. IT. It was the most fun I've had in ages. The other people in the class (who were slightly chubby middle-aged women and obese people like myself) set me at ease. Lora, the instructor was awesome, very friendly and laidback. The hour flew by, and by the end, I was pouring sweat. But so was everyone else.

Thankfully, it was nothing like this.

I'm excited to start a new month. I don't think I've mentioned it on here yet, but I'm doing my second 5K in October. It's Halloween-themed, so I'm taking costume suggestions!
