My apartment complex is offering free Zumba classes on Thursday nights, so I thought “Why not try it?!”

Going into the class, I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect. Of course I’ve heard of Zumba before but I had no idea how difficult it really would be! I was hard-core sweating 10 minutes into the class. But I loved it! The instructor was super high energy and incorporated a nice variety of simple and complex moves so that newbies like me wouldn’t feel completely lost.

I couldn’t always keep up with all the moves (especially when it came to the hip gyrations! lol) but I feel like for my first time, I did fairly well and I plan on going again next week!

Egg Fast Results

The morning of my first day of my egg fast I weighed in at 221. I was slightly heavier because of a fun fourth of July weekend where I indulged quite a bit.

The second day of egg fast, I was 219, but not overly excited about eating only eggs, fat, and some cheese for another day.

This morning, I stepped on the scale and it read 216.4! What?! I had to reset it and step on it again and see it read 216.4 again for me to believe it. Wow!

So, total lost from this egg fast was 4.6 pounds. Not bad! Not enough for me to do a third day, right now, but it’s good to know I can pull out this little trick if I hit a stall or after I have a bad cheat day.

And now, to enjoy the bacon that’s been cooking in my oven!

One Month Progress

Today marks one month since starting this Keto lifestyle. I had to take a a second look at the scale this morning when I thought it read 229.4 instead of 219.4. I’m just not used to seeing a 1 following that 2.

One month ago, on May 29th, I weighed 230.8, bringing my total weight loss to 11.4 pounds. It’s not as much weight loss as some people on Keto experience in their first month, but I am very pleased with it, given how many bad days I had in this first month. I hope to be better next month.

I’m also supposed to take my progress photos today and that is scaring the heck out of me. What if I don’t see a difference? I don’t really feel super different…I still look and feel overweight. But maybe I will be surprised.
