Oh my God! It's been AGES since I've written ANYTHING on my blog!! But, today I'm back. May 5, 2012, I became a licensed Zumba fitness instructor!! Who would have imagined? And, I'm about to CELEBRATE my 2 year anniversary as a ZUMBA INSTRUCTOR next month! Woo hoo! I'm so excited. And, yet, in that time, after keeping my weight under control for almost 2 years, I slowly regained 20-25 pounds back! My first clue was when my skinny jeans no longer fit me! And, when my tan pants were tight in the waistline. What happened to me? I began to think that I could relax a little bit with my eating. I stopped being meticulous and careful. But, mainly, I began eating tortillas, fried tacos, Mexican sweet bread and chocolate in greater proportions than before. I know why I did this; I let another person influence my eating in this way instead of maintaining control over my diet (and by diet I mean food intake). Get over it already! Time for change, and self-responsibility!!
Summer is approaching, and I have an important family function to attend in July. I have 3 months to prepare for fitting into this hot dress! I want to look, and FEEL, my best!! And, I know, past experience has taught me, that 3 MONTHS is plenty of time to CHANGE MY BODY!! All I have to do is eat the right foods in the right proportions, and stick to it!!
Recently, I did the Dr. Oz 2-week Rapid Weight Loss Diet. I really liked it because it gave me an opportunity to refocus on my eating habits and to begin again of making healthier life choices when it comes to the kitchen!! I lost 6 pounds on it, and probably would have lost a bit more had I not cheated a few times.
Right now I am watching what I eat. I am diligently focused on clean eating. I am thankful for a friend and a support group that she started. So, we send messages to each other and try to support one another. That is a god-send for me!! To be continued...
