So. New Year's day has come and gone but people are still buzzing about RESOLUTIONS. Barf. I'm not a big fan of New Year's resolutions. One should be able to resolve whenever they want to or need to. As it turns out.....this year I NEED to make a resolution or two NOW.
I weighed myself. Not cool. So I went on this cool website, plugged in my height, weight, age blah blah blah....THEY told me that I am OBESE. Not overweight, not pleasantly plump, not ideal....but OBESE. Screw them, must be a sham. So I went to another site. NOPE. Not a sham. The other site was just as rude. Man, the truth hurts.
So, I AM FAT. I don't think I am fat. I think I'm quite HOT. BUT, the scales don't lie. And apparently, neither do these evil calculating websites. This is it. I weigh....A LOT......my goal weight is about 50lbs less than A LOT. I have a plan. It will work. Over the course of the next few months I will be blogging on my journey to my ideal weight. Anyone care to join me?
For Christmas, I requested from Santa (knowing that I was not naughty and would get what I asked for) a copy of Zumba for the Wii. Yesterday I fired it up. I created my profile - put on the belt - moved some furniture - and DANCED! Thank God no one was watching. I love dancing and I love Zumba, but seriously....I DO NOT have the moves like Jagger. I shook my booty until it hurt. A one hour dance off - just me and the Wii. I burned 994 calories. NOT BAD. I think I can get used to this.
This morning, I am sore. Yesterday's 994 calorie burn hurts. But alas, I have made the pledge to improve and gosh-darnit-all I WILL do it. I will be dancing again today. Tomorrow I will be shaking up a storm on the T-zone.
I have resolved to lose weight before and I didn't do it. I have been hovering around the same weight for years. I am content. THAT is the problem. I'm getting older, and NOW is the time to make the changes.
I have admitted that I have a problem. I am taking steps to improve on the situation - for me and for my loved ones. Day 2 - I am coming for you. LOOK OUT!!!
I will post in a week - let you know how I'm making out.
