How are you guys doing? Hope you had a good weekend! Mine was a whirlwind and definitely had its ups and downs.  The up was that I sold my Corrolla on Saturday. I ended up selling it to the maintenance guy in our office building. It is the 1st car I ever sold. He got a really good deal and that car is going to last for a longggg time. As for the rest of the weekend, I was a freaking grubbing machine. Can we say self sabotage!?! I have not binged out like that in quite awhile but I am dusted off and back on the horse as of this morning. I am still feeling full and it is 10:00 a.m! Blergh...

Dave had games all day yesterday so I did not have a chance to capture my measurements and the dreaded bathing suit picture.  I will do them tonight and post them tomorrow.

I decided to buy myself a present for my birthday which is a little tradition for me. I ordered the Zumba DVD set on eBay. It was $59.95 and it includes the following:
  • Zumba Fitness Basics Workout
  • Zumba Fitness 20-Minute Express Workout
  • Zumba Fitness Sculpt & Tone Workout
  • Zumba Fitness Cardio Party Workout
  • Zumba Fitness Live! Workout
  • Zumba Fitness Flat Abs Workout
  • 2 Zumba Fitness Toning Sticks 

Have you guys heard of Mio? It is a liquid water enhancer made by Kraft. I just heard about it over the weekend so while I was at the grocery store, I picked up a bottle. The flavor I got was Strawberry Watermelon. The cool thing is you can flavor it as much or as little as you want. Each bottle contains about 24 servings and retails for about $3.99. I think it is worlds better then the powdered mixes because it is so hard to control the strength and sometimes it has a bad after taste.  I will be giving away a bottle of Mio to three lucky winners and you get to pick which flavors. You can choose from Berry Pomegranate, Fruit Punch, Mango Peach, Peach Tea, Sweet tea or Strawberry Watermelon.  Just leave a comment on this post telling me which flavor you would want to try. I will announce the winners on Friday, June 10th. This giveaway is open to US and Canadian residents only. If you would like an additional entry you can post about the giveaway on Facebook or Twitter. Just leave me a comment with the link, letting me know that you posted it. Don't forget to leave me your email if you don't have a blog so I can contact you if you win.  Good luck!

Cheers to all the challengers and here's to a great summer! I want to rock this summer! Until next time...


  1. I am all over the Berry Pomegranate. I love Pomegranate anything. Peach Tea would also be awesome. Keep up the good work. I love your blog.


  2. Hey Katie J! I just wanted to say that I love your blog! I have been reading it for a few weeks now! I just started a weight loss blog as well, and I love being able to gain encouragement from others. I also live in Northern Cal. I saw you live in Santa Clara..I live in Mountain View! Small world eh??

    I've never done zumba, but I'm considering joining a zumba class in MTV in July. I hope you end up liking your new Zumba DVD's.

    I've never heard of Mio, but looks yummy. I would probably enjoy the Berry Pomegranate or the Strawberry Watermelon!

    Have a happy Monday!

  3. I have been wanting to try the Mio fruit punch. I love fruit punch.

  4. Hey Katie, I was looking for your email on your blog, but didnt see it, so I will reply here! I am a member of golds gym at the moment, but looking to change really soon. I'm considering 24 hour fitness or the Y. Where do you work out?

  5. Sweet tea or peach mango sound yummy! I've never tried Zumba but everyone raves about it, I need to get on that!

  6. I've never tried Zumba! You go girl!!

    I think I'd like fruit punch :)

  7. How do you like the zumba discs? We have Zumba for the Wii and we like it.

    I love anything with Mango so the Mango Peach sounds awesome. I haven't tried it, thanks!

  8. Fruit Punch, baby! :) That stuff looked good, but I wanted to hear somone else that had tried it, haha.

  9. I have the same Zumba set and LOVE it! I hope you enjoy it too :o)

    I've wanted to try that Mio stuff but never think of it when I'm at the store. Fruit Punch sounds good!

  10. I tried Zumba & didn't have the coordination for it. I had the exact dvd set, too! It was interesting, and kinda fun, but I just couldn't get into the swing of things.

    I have heard of Mio but haven't actively searched for it yet. Berry pomegranate sounds amazing! I may have to go on the hunt for some now...


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
