And here’s where I stand today. I’ve now returned to a much healthier weight, feel better than I have in a long time, and truly enjoy my life! Now that the weight is off; however, maintenance will be my next battle. I’ve fallen short here before, but I think I’ve not only built strong tools to help me get there, but I’ve also got a strong support system with my friends and family!

I owe a big THANK YOU to my Hip Hop Fitness instructors. Collectively, they’ve helped me achieve some amazing things this year and I’m so grateful! Thank you Mike, Jacque, Martha, Melissa, and Shannon! Continue reading “Thank You HHF & Gluten Free Paleo Pumpkin Bread”
A huge part of my success with weight loss this year has been trying Hip Hop Fitness. My friend Alisa and I were doing a cardio class (kickboxing-ish) and we got there early (I always run early) and ran into the instructor, Jacque, leaving from the first class. So – Alisa thought we should try it out…
I was absolutely nervous…I’d never really taken a “dance” class in my life and the last time I had done any time of dancing was my senior year of high school…in a musical…and I wasn’t really “good” then. But – after taking one class – I was hooked! Now I go about 3-4 times a week, not because I really need that much cardio, but because it’s actually a lot of fun.
So – while I may not be the best dancer and I may not have the moves like Jagger, at least I can have fun! By the way, you can thank Alisa for this horrible video, too…I figured I might as well post this before she tries to embarrass me on her blog first.
