Zumba Night!

Zumba is officially the most fun workout ever!!! I went to the class tonight with my mom and then did 30 mins on the ellipictal.

Check out this calorie burn...

That's right people, 759 calories!!! Okay, so I had to work extra hard today because this morning, my scale decided that it hated me. It said that I GAINED 4 FREAKIN' POUNDS!!!!! How is this possible??? I have been working my butt off...and yes, I ate some stuff yesterday that was not what I have normally been eating, but I did not eat enough to gain 4 pounds!!!!!!! I drank a ton of water last night too...hopefully I'm just retaining some of that. Geez!!!! 4 pounds???? Seriously??? Mr. Scale...I hate you too!!! Until tomorrow morning, when you hopefully show me something that I want to see...

Also, I started the 7 Day Chip commitment to eating healthy and not exceeding 1250 calories for 7 days straight. That went really well today. Here's what I had:

Breakfast: Weight Control Oatmeal & grapes   264 cals

Snack:  Fiber One Bar   90 cals

Lunch: Baby Carrots & Broccoli w/ Laughing Cow cheese & Homemade Vegetable Soup   204 cals

Snack: 100 Calorie Popcorn    100 cals

Dinner:  Mini Pizza (Orowheat Sandwich Thins, Hummus, Sundried Tomatoes, Goat Cheese, Chicken Breast, drizzle of Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing) & Unsalted Pretzels     352 cals

Snack:  Gatorade G2   50 cals



  1. Zumba was a fun workout - hopefully I can eventually learn to shake it! I can't believe you had he energy to do the eliptical after that - I was beat! Love you! Keep up the good work!

  2. Way to go, Cherice! I'm impressed that you did Zumba AND elliptical! Don't worry about the "weight gain", I'm sure it was just a fluke!

  3. I sure hope so...or my scale is gonna get it! LOL ;)

  4. I bet tomorrow you will get lots of exercise running to the little girls room...tee hee hee. That 4 lbs will be gone before you know it!! Great job!!
