Five Weeks In!

I am five weeks into my spring fitness routine so it seems like a good time for another update.

First I just want to say that last week there was a full moon from Hell. If it could go wrong, it did, and on Saturday things went right off the rails.

NOW for the good news!

  • I managed to get through it all without coming unhinged. One step at a time… And I kept up my dancersize EVERY day. And yes, I had my glass of wine almost every evening – four out of seven for sure – but on Saturday I had two. πŸ˜‚
  • I lost a pound and a half this week. I know, that is meagre and it could come back next week, but it is better news than putting on a pound and a half. I am feeling better and that is what it is all about. Also, my body is tightening up and my weight is shifting so my clothes are starting to fit a bit better. πŸ˜‰
  • My dog, Kat is doing MUCH better today. I heard her cough/choke a little bit once this morning but she may have been faking it because she loves her coconut oil/honey/cinnamon mixture – Like Maddy used to do after I gave her a mini ice cream bar for a sore throat one day. (She even got her siblings on board. It sounded like the plague had hit when they came over. 🀣)
  • Sun is shining, snow is melting, and my seedlings are sprouting like a darn. 🌞
  • Yay! Another week of spring fitness down. πŸ€—
Zdancerliz’ has a number of YouTube videos that I have been working out with. This military themed one was a new one that I tried this morning. Despite the fact that I have the grace and co-ordination of Gumbi’s girlfriend, I was able to keep up with most of it without injuring myself. πŸ˜‰
I have used this You Tube meditation by Rasa Pura a few times lately and find it super relaxing. 😌
Kat – looking, and I am sure feeling, much better. πŸ’—

That’s it for today. Take care and have a great day. πŸ’ž

  1. Thank you! She has several of them and I can mostly follow them. (An occasional limb goes rogue but I am getting better all the time.). I also use an oriental extreme fat burning one that I use, and I have put together a You Tube library of favourite songs that I just freestyle dance to on days when I am struggling to get motivated. They are good because at least one of the songs sticks in my head and keeps me feeling perky for hours.

  2. Congratulations on your success AnneMarie! Kat looks so sweet, I’m glad that she’s feeling better! I had to look up Gumbi’s girlfriend Tara. I don’t recall this character. We used to say “your feeling pretty Gumbi, eh?” πŸ˜‚ Yay for snowmelt!

  3. Good for you losing and shifting some weight around, nice job! So glad to hear your treatment is working for Kat and she is much better. I may just have to try some dancing, maybe that will shift some parts I need shifted and or gone. LOL Thanks for sharing the videos Anne.

  4. Good for you! And good about Kat too! Spring is a long, painful ritual here in western New Hampshire. The mud is ridiculously bad this year. But it is a necessary sign that life will get better.

  5. For what it is worth my doctor said to aim for no more than 1/2 to 1 pound a week for meaningful weight loss..(For a moment I thought that was a video of you and was really impressed! Thank goodness it wasn’t or I would have really felt inadequate.)

  6. Lol. No that would not be me. 🀣🀣🀣. If I hit 1/2 to 1 pound a week, I would be happy. 😊 But six weeks in, I feel so much better – physically, mentally, and emotionally that I am quite happy anyway. πŸ€—

  7. Saw her yesterday and she reminded me that my goal of weighing what I did at 20 was not a good idea.(No wonder it was so discouraging!) She wants me to aim for 6-8 pound loss. Very very slowly.
