31 Days of Healthy Living: (Days 2 & 3) The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly

So, I'm not off to a great start.  Sorry friends!  Obviously, when I made the decision to write for 31 days straight on the subject of "healthy living," I wasn't thinking about the weekend I had ahead of me... Oh well, tomorrow is a new day.  And, getting up and starting over is what healthy living is all about in my book. :)

The Good...

On Saturday morning, I participated in a Party in Pink Zumbathon for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation at my gym.  We danced for two straight hours, and it was SO fun!  Plus, we earned $7500 for an awesome cause!  You can't get much healthier than that!

Overall, it was a wonderful way to start the weekend.  I absolutely LOVE Zumba!  Seriously, I've never enjoyed exercise, but I look forward to this every.single.week.  And, if you saw me after a class, you'd know that it is a REALLY good work out too!!  If you haven't tried it, I urge you to find a class!  It is wonderful!  (Read my post here, if you'd like more information.)

The Bad...
After the Zumbathon, we had a super busy day getting ready for our annual Oktoberfest party.  (Update tomorrow.)  And... Jeff and I snuck a trip to Wendy's for lunch/dinner.  I ate a spicy chicken sandwich and split a large fry with Jeff.  BAD.

And, the UGLY...
The eating really never stopped after that.  I hung out at the food table a lot last night; and, Jeff got the wild idea to bake cookies this afternoon and leave me at home alone with them.  NOT pretty.

Thank goodness tomorrow is a fresh start!!!

How was your weekend?

  1. I love Zumba. Even for the rythmically challenged (such as myself) it was such a fun class! Unfortunately, I don't have gym membership in my unemployment budget, so I've had to take a break.

    I'm so glad you had so much fun! That looks like a blast!


Your comments are what makes this thing fun! I LOVE to hear from you and do my best to respond to everyone! THANK YOU!
