So I’m still going to Zumba twice a week. I still love it! Once last week and Monday of this week they have substituted R.I.P.P.E.D. for Zumba. I wish I could do R.I.P.P.E.D. twice a week too (they offer the class) but I’m already pulled in too many directions.
I’ve lost 10lbs so far and toned up all over. I know that muscle weights more than fat so I’m trying not to get discouraged when I don’t see the scale budge. Its getting harder not to though, I have to admit. I feel great though, I really do! I have a lot more energy and I can tell that I’m building my muscle back in my left leg (it had gotten really weak after my injury).
Its time to do what I always dread when it comes to getting in shape: altering my eating. Ugh… I know that I need to start watching what I put in my body in order to see the results that I want to see. I love healthy food, I love non healthy food….I just love food! And, like everyone else in today’s society, I feel like my time is stretched thin as it is so meals need to be quick.
So this weekend I’m going to get a plan together and go grocery shopping (in between working on our rental, working on our home, etc.). I’ve been reading up on meal planning, eating clean and IIFYM. I’m going to ease myself into all of this. Honestly, there is so much information out there on everything and I’m a little overwhelmed. I want to play around with some things and find what works for me. Everyone is different.
My plan thus far:
- Weekly Meal Planning/Prep (So that I can have more control over what I eat and not be tempted to eat bad when I’m in a pinch)
- 2 Zumba Classes a Week
- Walking in the morning 3 times a week (I’m thinking Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, weather permitting)
Once I get in a decent routine I’ll do an update on all of it.
