Whoo hoo, I'm down 3.5 pounds for the week. I'm super excited! I not only want to work on my weight but my body fat. Last week it was 45.7% ... yikes, I can't believe it's that much ... this morning, although it's a bit hard to read is 42.1%. That's a big drop for just 1 week of cardio.
The weekend was very nice & laid back ... I need every day to be like this weekend, I would be so much more happy. Oh well, if you didn't have bad days you wouldn't be glad to have good ones right?

I know, I'm under the calories I should be taking in. For some reason I'm just not in to food today. Maybe later tonight I'll add some more fruit or something so I can get my calories into my range. I know I need to, I did a lot of dancing today. Not much of anything else. =)

You can have fun & burn calories all at the same time. For my weight I burned 230 calories in 35 min. Curious how many you'll burn? Check out Fitness Calorie Calculator
I found this little gem ( also another that I'll share tomorrow) at Walmart yesterday. What caught my eye while walking past all the workout videos was it's claim that the workout only had 10 steps to learn. Yea baby ... a no brainer workout! Oh well of course the price caught my eye too. I paid $9.45 for it & it's well worth it. Well, that is if you like to dance like I do. The instructor breaks each step down then adds them all together. I find this is the easiest way to learn the steps quickly so I'm glad that the team of Dance off the Inches is sticking to this style.
Since I was talking about how much body fat I have on my body it occured to me that there are probably others out there who don't know what a healthy range is so here's what I found;Body Fat Charts
The percentage of body fat you have affects not only your weight and shape, but also affects your health.
Q. How much body fat is too much, or even too little?
A. That depends on two important factors, whether you are a man or a woman, and how old you are.
When comparing a body fat chart for men to a body fat chart for women you can see that women steadily increase their percentage body fat as they go through life, staying within a healthy fat range. Whereas male body fat percentage fluctuates during puberty before following the same adult pattern in body fat increments seen in the body fat chart for women.
And throughout life from adulthood women can have a body fat percentage 10% higher than a man of the same age who is of a healthy body fat range and still be in their healthy body fat range.
