and Yes for real! lol
Now mind you he spoke to me thru my ipod and Nike+ fitness system. He said Hi I'm Tiger Woods and I just want to congratulate you. Today you ran your fastest mile on record. Whoooo hoooo. Works for me. lol
Last time I had a running milestone it was Lance Armstrong who whispered sweet nothings in my ear. hahaha.
Seriously though if you haven't heard of Nike+ipod you should check it out because it has got to be the most motivating thing out there.
Have a great day all, I'll tell Tiger you said hi.

Haaaaallejuhah, Haaaaaallejuhah, halejuhah, halejuhah...Heather's scale finally moved!
Yes it finally moved!
I guess the men in the white coats won't have to make a trip to cart me away after all, at least this week. lol
Whooo hoooo after 5 weeks of doing all the right things, and starting to get very discouraged, my scale finally moved...only a pound, but it moved and it put me into the land of the 170's a strange and mysterious land which seems to have a mysterious password needed to enter.
I still don't know what the password is...but I'm in and thats all that matters.
Plus this morning "TOM" made an appearance so it could be more than a pound.

Whooo hooo...don't ya love it. The first day of a new month....a month to set goals and shoot for the stars and give it all you got....and dream about what you will have accomplished come the end of the month.
I'm excited...Last month we had a miles challenge at the NEW team. I logged 76 miles all by myself, my 3 other teamates in the challenge, one of whom is in her last couple weeks before having a baby...contributed big time. With just the four of us...we logged over 300 miles. Whoooo hoooo. Its a small team..but mighty.
So that worked so well we thought...what the heck lets go again. We are also going to do a nurtirional challenge for Feb.
So I'm reved up and ready to go. Got my grrrrr factor on and I'm ready to

I first heard about zumba from some people on spark last year. I asked what is it and they
pointed me to a video of zumba. It looked like so much fun and the people doing it were crazy about it. So I tried to find a class but Zumba had not yet arrived on the east coast of Canada. Then it finally arrived at a local dance studio a year later. I was so happy, excited and terrified!
It meant going to this class by myself, and I didn't know what it would be like. The video I had seen looked like fun, but what if it wasn't like that, what if every one in the class was skinny and fit, and didn't have a second left foot like me! What if they went right and I went left. YiKES! I nearly didn't go because of all the scary What Ifs!
In the end though I put on my big girl panties, took a deep breath....several...I think I was hyperventilating...but I went. I'm soooooooooooooooooooooo glad I did.
In the class was every shape and size of woman. There were some young, fit, and very co-ordinated young people, but for the most part...it was women 30's 40,'s and 50's. The class itself was awesome. Soooooooooooooooooooo much fun you don't even realize how hard your working out. Make a mistake, turn the wrong way well thats just one more funny thing to laugh about. WE all had a tremendous time, and although I didn't know anyone going in,
I knew several on the way out. Everyone was smiling and laughing when we left and we can't wait for next Tuesday to do it again.
I'm so glad I didn't let my fear stand in the way of going!
Oh and if you've never heard of Zumba...its a fitness class that incorporates latin dance moves and is done to fabulous latin music that just makes your feet wanna move.
The motto for Zumba is "Ditch the Workout, have a Party" and that is exactly what its like...so much fun. You can see videos of it at youtube.com just search for zumba.
Everyone should try it.
So I nearly didn't go because of my fear and insecurities, what is your fear and insecurities holding you back from????
have a great day.
