This past week I worked my butt off...literally....still have a long way to go but it is a start. 

Sunday, I started my first Couch to 5K.  For anyone not knowing what that is, it is a 3x a week/8 week jogging and walking program that gets you ready to run a 5K (3.1 miles). 

Monday, Amy and I did the Aqua class and boy were we both in for a surprise thinking that it would be pretty easy since 99% of the class was well over 60....ya right, it wore me completely out and that night I think I had the best nights sleep I have had in a really really long time.

Tuesday, 2nd Couch to 5K

Wednesday, Amy and I tried our dance skills out for our first Zumba class.  It was a BLAST!  I don't believe that I have ever sweated so much.  The lady told us that depending on how much effort you put into it you could burn 700 calories in the 60 minute class.  It has great upbeat music that keeps you moving and the room was completely packed with all ages and body types of women so you have no time to feel awkward.

Thursday, 3rd Couch to 5K

Friday, back for another round of Zumba, although I had a rough start to the day backing into the garage door and all so I didn't eat enough and my energy level was not all the way up but still managed to make it through the class.

Saturday...rest day.

Today, back at it again with my 2nd week of Couch to 5K.
