Hey guys! Hope you had a fantastic turkey day. I ate a lot of my moms and aunts good food and I won’t lie, it was delicious. It was so worth the wait. We only eat like this on Easter, Christmas and Thanksgiving so I was SO here for the Jamaican feast!
The turkey burn was a huge success! I love teaching Zumba on regular Saturdays but there is something extra special about having your friends and family come out to have some Zumba fun!
I had old friends, high school peeps, friend of friends, siblings, so many awesome ladies that worked the mess out of this turkey burn I even had a few ask for some of the boot camp moves to be permanent post class. YES!
According to my polar I burned over 1000 calories with this extended workout, I wasn’t surprised the adrenaline was crazy, it actually reminded me of the exact way I felt when I taught at fitbloggin last summer.
I am feeling really good about what is happening with my continued weight loss. The weird part though? I totally can’t see it. I have lost over 9 pounds in 8 weeks and I can’t see it. Some days I’m like oh my gosh, look at me, other days I’m like “this can’t be life, seriously WHERE is the weight loss?!” Meanwhile, I am fitting into old suits, everything is getting looser, even my gym clothes are looking better. I never thought I’d say this but the scale is my motivation right now! It is the only place where I seeing consistency, I hope that changes soon!
I lost another 1.8 pounds this week–which I am pretty sure had a lot to do with the #turkeyburn where I burned over 1k calories in 90 minutes (cray!). I am very very happy with this week’s weigh in, especially considering that it is a holiday week.
My initial goal is only 7.1 pounds away. I really can’t believe that it took me over 2 years to finally get it right. Goal is so close I can taste it. If I only lose a pound for the next 12 weeks (been averaging a 1.5 loss every week), I will be at pre-pregnancy weight!! #ready.
