My name is Laurie. I'm 34 and I live in a suburb of Houston, TX. My life isn't super exciting or ultra dramatic, but I love it! My blogs are just a peek into my life as I know it. I'm quite random and have an opinion on everything, but I love everyone's aspect on things, even if I disagree. The world would be quite boring if not! :-)

Whew... What a week!

Sorry for the lack of blogging, but my week was a week from hell at work.  I'm covering for my friend at work while she's on maternity leave, and in addition to my regular whacked out hours during month end, it made for a crazy week!  I even missed my Thursday 13 that I love doing so much!

Last week I went to the gym 5 out of 7 days and earned 33 activity points... It made a difference in my weigh in - I lost 2 pounds at Wednesdays' weigh in!  Wahoo!!      Since Wednesday, however, I have only made it to the gym once, this morning.   I know I can catch up a bit over the weekend with my workouts, but work had me exhausted during the week!     Today, I went to a different gym because I'm taking care of my friend's dogs, so I thought I'd try a gym in between our homes...   I got there at 9 and changed, and it just so happened a ZUMBA class was starting in a few minutes.  Taking a Zumba class is on my Day Zero Project list, so I got something knocked out today.  I absolutely loved it.  I am completely uncoordinated, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to going again next week!

Last night, I blew my points, but I am not going to sweat it.   John and I went out for pizza.... and it was delicious... and I needed to get out with my man.    We have both been so busy and it was nice for someone else to make dinner for us and we could just sit and talk!   

We don't have too much planned for the holiday weekend, and for that I'm grateful.  It'll be nice just to just hang out, work out, and be merry!  Wahoo!
I hope you all have a fantastic long weekend!

So uncoordinated people can do Zumba too? Well then sign me up! That's my kind of exercise.

MMM...pizza!! :) Quick question on the activity points. Do you use them? If so, do you use them before or after your weekly bonus points? Just curious. Thanks! :) - Kirsten

Sounds hectic but productive and fun.
I might have to try this Zumba business that you speak of.
