Belly Busters UPDATE

Sadly, the Belly Busters are no more. It kind of reminds me of Survivor: The Biggest Loser has spoken and your team has been ousted.


They kindly recommended that I continue to do the weekly weigh-ins. Come to find out I was in second place for the over-all biggest loser and very close to being first. At first I was disappointed…I mean, how could I not be as I was going to go get a Snickers bar for lunch people but not if I had to keep weighing in. Yes, yes I know this is about life change, etc but I am very competitive and have been taking this very seriously so really was looking forward to that Snickers bar now that I was an official loser.

Alas however, my journey is continuing. Through next Wednesday, April 6th. At least I believe that is the final weigh-in. What will the overall biggest loser get? I think a big trip somewhere or something.

Nah, just teasing. A TV so I can sit down while I eat my Snickers bar. The irony of the situation is if I truly did win is that Adam and I haven’t had cable for two years now so what to do with another TV?!

It may be the end of me….or teach me rhythm


We have a membership to the local fitness center and go and we both do our thing. Me? I do the SAME thing each time. Pick whatever TV show I want to watch, plug in my ear phones, hop on the treadmill and go. In December there was a guest instructor that was here just for a few weeks that taught Zumba and people LOVED it. My nurse went once and said she thought she was going to die only 3 minutes into the 60 minute class but really liked the very end where she got to throw her arms in the air like she was saying “ta-da!”.

Because of its popularity a couple of gals have gone to get trained and are starting a class on April 5th. One of them I know, the other I don’t but I hear she is awesome. I got an invite from her on facebook and I talked to some of our nurses at the clinic and there was a lot of “I’ll go if you go”, etc. I’m gonna give it a try. There are a gazillion you tube videos of Zumba-including all sorts of versions but Adam found a few that I took a look at today and actually tried to do and discovered 1) I may die 2) I have no rhythm WHATSOEVER. It is like that scene in the movie Hitch where Will Smith tells the white guy about his dance moves “Don’t EVER do that again!”.

All the while, Adam is laughing. I told him I am NOT going to dance class I AM going to an exercise class!

Here is a video of Zumba. Other than the rock-hard abs and skin tight exercise clothes, awesome rhythm, lack of sweat and constant smile…this COULD be me sometime….    OH!! And, WHO wears their hair down when they work out????? I mean, come on people?????
