Hip Hopping the Pounds Away

It's been a few weeks since I started my new, awesome plan to get back into shape in time for Spring/Summer/bikinis/my clothes that need to fit again ASAP. And I've come to the conclusion that joining my new gym was the best idea I've had in a long time. I'm a "regular" at several classes a week and they are tons of fun! I have my Retro Sculpt on Mondays (complete with awesome 80s music and cardio/strength intervals), Ultimate Conditioning on Tuesdays, and my favorite... Cardio Fusion on Wendesdays! That's the one that was really out of my comfort zone. It's basically a cardio dance class with lots of hip hop elements for an hour.

And let me paint the picture, I'm an awkward nerdy girl with no soul, minimal rhythm and I had to google was twerking was. And apparently I'm not a bad dancer after all! Plus everyone looks as crazy as I do and we don't really care. I find that if you spend too much time worrying about what people might think of the booty shaking, you end up not burning very many calories! So I just go all out. And I am definitely sore after any one of those 3 classes. Throw in my Friday evenings of half cardio/half weight training and I've got a pretty awesome schedule!

I didn't think that something so trivial as changing gyms would help so much, but the fact that I can have my pick of cardio equipment when I walk in the door AND there is TONS of space for weight training, interval training, weight machines, etc  totally makes my night when I get there. They even have a water foundation specifically designed to fill water bottles... GENIUS!

But the most important part... the results! I started the month off as a miserable 184.1 lbs. I haven't seen that number since I started losing weight nearly 4 years ago. Well, after 3 weeks I'm down 3 lbs and I'm quite content with that progress. My clothes are actually starting to fit a bit better now that I'm not as puffy from eating crap. I've been really focusing on eating more natural foods and less carbs. My new favorite thing ever is my Graze snack box! I get it delivered once a week and it comes with 4 pre-packaged healthy snack googies! I put one in my lunch box every day and it seriously takes all my willpower to wait until the afternoon to eat it! Plus since they have over 90 snacks, I won't get sick of the same ones. Anyway, if anyone is interested in signing up, right now the only way to join is to have a friend code. Mine is SARAT99PP and you can use it at

I'm shooting for a goal of being under 180 by the end of January, and I only have a pound to go! We'll see if I can manage to get there, but even if I'm a little off, I'm absolutely moving in the right direction for a change and I'm much more mindful of what I'm eating and how much I'm moving. I have a stack of clothes that I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to fit me by March/April, so that's my ultimate goal!
