How did I let it happen? How did I wake up one day to find myself at 286 pounds and completely miserable in my own body? It happened, I can't blame anyone but me. And only I can fix it. So I am. On December 23, 2009 I had Lap-Band Surgery with Dr. John Marsden. I'm down 100 pounds so far with about 25 to go.

Dance Dance Dance!

Yesterday I decided to do something different to work up a sweat. I got out my Wii and played some Just Dance 2! They have this section called "Just Sweat" where you aren't really competing with anyone, just accumulating sweat points. You get to a certain number of sweat points every day. I chose the Hard program which is 1000 points a day. I was on a roll though and went til I hit 2000! It has super fun songs like Girlfriend by Avril Lavigne, Call Me by Blondie, Jump by Kriss Kross ... so fun! And it really doesn't feel like working out. Until you are done and all sweaty :)

I just realized that the previous paragraph has the word (or derivation thereof) sweat in it 5 times!

Today I have my workout clothes again to hit the fitness center after work. I'm pretty excited about it, I'm going to try for 14 minutes on the elliptical today. I'll see how I feel on the treadmill today as to whether it is a running or an incline kind of day. I don't think I'm ready to run at an incline yet though, ha!

Also ... tomorrow is the premiere of the very last Harry Potter movie. I am excited and sad all at the same time. A friend of mine at work got special passes and went to see it on Monday and said it was fantastic. I can't wait! Who else is a Harry Potter fan out there? When are you going to see the movie?


  1. I keep looking at the "Just Dance 2" for Wii. I am glad to hear you are enjoying it. I may have to go ahead and commit and get it.

  2. My son lives in San Francisco and he is going to the premiere tonight, with a group of friends....he's pretty excited!

  3. nice workout!

    I am so excited about harry potter, we are going to see it on saturday for my birthday!

    Good luck on the eliptical tonight :)

  4. *hesitantly raises hand* I am also a HP lover. LOL

    The workouts sound pretty amazing. I might have to get Just Dance! :)

  5. First of all, who the heck are YOU??? I love it!! I want to come over and play Just Dane. I don't have that one and it sounds fun!

    Have a great weekend!

  6. My roommate has Just Dance so I think I'm going to try that. It sounds like fun!
