Go Me - Zumba Wii - Hot 100 #8

I had a good day yesterday! Dave met me at lunch time and I ate my sandwich and then we went to the workout room in my building! Can you believe it? I rode a mile on the bike and then did upper body machines. We had about a 1/2 hour or so to work out. After work, I went to my moms and took care of her paperwork. So glad to get that out of the way. I did pass on going out to dinner though.

Here is my update for the Hot 100 #8
  1. I will lose 2 lbs. per week. I lost 0 lbs (262)
  2. I will wear my bodybugg from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. daily. I wore it 5/7
  3. I will exercise a min. of 30 mins - 5 days per week. I did 3 days this week
Even though I did not lose, I am feeling a renewed sense of motivation and hoping it continues! It sounds so cliche but if I look at it day to day, like what exercise am I going to get today - it is not as overwhelming as how much can I get in this week know what I mean?

Not sure if you knew but there is a new "game" for the Wii and it's Zumba Fitness! It is brand new -just released yesterday. I pre-ordered it through Amazon and will be receiving it next week. I am SO excited. My two favorite activities in one game! Woohoo! I will write a formal review once I get it and use it. This is what it said on Amazon:

Zumba Fitness is an exercise game and program for Wii that taps into the Zumba dance-exercise craze that has swept the nation. Surprisingly challenging, and addictively fun, the 30 heart-pounding Zumba routines that make up Zumba Fitness utilize the motion sensing capabilities of the Wii Remote or Wii Remote Plus controller which work along with the exclusive Wii Remote belt, included with the game, to create a fun but result-producing workout. Additional features include: 4-player support, including a two-on-two co-op option; multiple skill levels along with a training level; multiple in-game instructors and venues.

Nothing formal planned for the weekend. I need to do some cleaning/straightening because my mom is seeing our place for the 1st time on Thanksgiving before we go to dinner.  We are also going to the gym come hell or high water! on Saturday. I want Dave to spot me on some machines that I have not used before. I also want to scope out a punching bag. I really would like to do some boxing.  I am not sure if I have the endurance yet to do a Cardio Kickboxing class. I suppose I could just try it and see how I do. Sunday, I may go see Bruce but will call him on Saturday to see if he is up for it. My uncle Steve has invited us over the hill for dinner on Friday. He said I could bring Bruce. Not sure if Bruce will be interested in going but we will see. It will be a lot of driving to go get him and then drive 90 miles each way. Not the end of the world but it is a lot of driving. Steve has not seen Bruce in over 40 years because he was in the military around the time I was born. Should make for an interesting visit eh? Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Until next time...

  5. You must tell us about the game when you get it. I have heard about the classes and I'm terrified of stepping foot into one.

    Sounds like a busy weekend. Have fun!

  6. A renewed sense of fitness is a great thing! And the game? I bet that will sell like hotcakes. Zumba is so popular right now.
