Yup, I went and did it again.  I made the move BACK to Blogger.  I swear this is the last time!  Check me out there!

My first post of the week (finally!) and it’s going to be a good one because I am linking up with the lovely KJT & Lex for Non-Scale Victories.

This week I had a pretty huge non-scale victory in my opinion.  I tried out an actual Zumba class!  This was my first workout in quite some time and it has only made me want to workout more!  It was free tonight just to see what kind of interest there would be in the class and the location it’s being offered in.  If you follow me on Twitter you may have seen that it’s taking place at a bar (which has a ballroom).  Thanks to the large interest that was shown in the class there will be more!

My mom heard about it through a coworker who takes the instructors Zumba class already (not sure where though).  I actually saw it on Facebook and didn’t think much of it until my mom asked if I wanted to try it.  We tried it together and because I was talking about it on Twitter (my personal account) a friend of mine joined in as well.

It was fun and even though I couldn’t do all of the moves or keep a rhythm going I still worked up a sweat and am already feeling some soreness (yay!).

As I mentioned there was a large interest shown by the number of people who showed up tonight, and more were interested in coming but weren’t able to tonight.  So, beginning on the 21st Zumba is being offered at Homestead from 6:30-7:30 for $25 for 7 weeks, or $5 per class as you go.

My mom decided to pay the $25 for the 7 classes.  I decided I would pay the $5 when I decided I wanted to go.  With working 30 miles from home, and this bar being in my neck of the woods, being able to make a 6:30 start time when I don’t get done with work until 6 is pushing it close, especially with how the weather has been making road conditions less than ideal.  I would also miss a class due to my vacation to Maryland to see Chelsea.

The fact that it’s hosted close to home is a definite plus.  I am definitely not saying I won’t go again but I didn’t want to commit to 7 weeks when that may not always be possible.

I am in a great mood thanks to my workout tonight and am really considering getting up and going to the Y tomorrow morning before work!  Evidently all I needed to do was workout once to make me want to workout again!

Talk to me…

What was one of your non-scale victories for the week?

It’s that time again, to catch everyone up on what’s been going on over here at Living n Learning by Amy.

Monday

I posted about my first best friend, first concert, and first celebrity crushes.  You can read about it here.

Wednesday

Wednesday is weigh in day for me, and it was the end of the month.  Not as much progress as I would have liked happened in January but I can definitely change that for February.  Read my Weight Loss Wednesday post for a quick update.  I plan on writing a bit more on my thoughts on my weight loss soon.

Thursday

Thursday was a double whammy.  I participated in two link ups.

Random Thursday this week was about the top 5 worst TV shows, read about the five shows I wrote about here.

I also participated in the Non-Scale Victories link up where I talked about Pepsi Next being my friend.  You can read about my new friend here.

Saturday

And finally, I participated in the Pit & Peak link up.  Read about my pits and peaks here.

*All days of the week in pink boxes w/white lettering were taken from Allie from Tales of a Twenty Something, hope she doesn’t mind!*

Remember the rules:

– Write a blog post with the Pit & Peak of your week.
– Pit = The low part
– Peak = The high part
-Follow your hosts
– Grab a button
-Jump around, meet some new ladies (and men), and encourage and congratulate!

Pit(s)

When left alone my mood is down rather than up.  Still a result of the other week’s discovery about my ex? Maybe.

My dad was sick all week and now my mom is.  Hope I don’t get what they have!!

Peak(s)

I switched desks at work so my adding machine is on my right side so I can actually key rather than peck at the numbers.  And I’m farther away from the one woman who drives me nuts at work.  (Think late every day and takes time away from her desk more than you would think is appropriate.)  And the computer screen is nicer!  Hopefully I remember where I sit on Monday!

This Means War is on TV right now.  I absolutely love this movie.  Chelsea and I went to see it in the theaters and then rented it one night to watch again because we loved it so much.
