Well, if you read my comments yesterday (after the first 2) you know I went out and "got my groove on." I went wancing!! (That's a combination of walking and dancing.)

What a wonderful wance it was!! I tuned in to Brooks & Dunn on the iPod, strapped on the heart monitor and took off. I wanced all around the driveway. Bet you all can't do that on a public trail without people staring in disbelief or rolling on the ground laughing there heads off. But I have it all, with my privacy. When Boot Scootin' Boogie came on I did it. I just stopped where I was and started line dancing. All by my little (yea, right) self. I was so tickled when I got done I had a hard time restraining myself long enough to get my shoes off. Hey, the blahs are gone too.

I even got the heart monitor to work. Have no idea what I did and hope I can do it again the next time. I just started punching buttons and all of a sudden I realized it was working. I started putting my walking stats on my site yesterday so you can all see how I did and that will make me accountable in another way. I even burned twice as many calories by 1:00 PM than I had consumed. I almost broke my arm patting myself on the back.

And another plus...I'm into a smaller size undies too. I couldn't figure out why I was having trouble with the ones I was wearing while sleeping. They kept creeping up in strange places and I would wake myself up unscrunching them. So I tried a smaller size yesterday evening and wow, got to sleep well last night with out the discomfort.

I also did really well on my food intake. Only 1151 calories and 22.5 points.

See if I can do it (the laziest person I know), then so can you!

Aren't you glad you don't have to listen to me whine today?

You know there was one more thing I was going to say in my extremely long comment yesterday but forgot (go figure). It was to get some comedy CDs. Or download them from online into your iPod. Nothing gets me more motivated to do anything in life than listening to a good comedian. I have several really good (clean) ones I can suggest. They keep me in stitches and I'll be it'll help the time pass when you're walking.

I'm so glad you've found your motivation again. I have too. It's wonderful.

I would LOVE to see you wancing!!! I probably wouldn't stop laughing for a week!

Hahaha, this wancing you speak of sounds fun! I have been known to put on my fave dance tunes and dance like a mad woman when I'm home alone. It's good exercise and lots of fun =) I can just imagine you line dancing and having a good time. =) Happy Saturday!
