New Dietbet and Fitness Expo

I'm going on a Caribbean cruise with the beautiful Lap Band Gal in a couple of months and I'd like to lose a few more pounds before I go...after all, the rooms on a cruise ship are tiny and the more space we have the better. :-)  So I decided to do another Dietbet and bet $25 that I would lose 4% of my body weight in 28 days. These things are TOUGH but they're really good for keeping me focused for a month. And even if I don't win and "only" lose 3-4 pounds in a month, that's still pretty good! But I'm going for the whole enchilada (mmmm...enchiladas) and trying to actually WIN so I have some extra spending money for alcohol on the cruise. Did I say alcohol? Um. I meant for locally crafted souvenirs of the highest quality and...oh hell. You know I'll spend it on pina coladas.

Ahem. Anyway, if you'd like to join and try to win some of my money, the link to the Dietbet that starts tomorrow is: HERE.


Also, last weekend, my fitness studio held an expo at the convention center to show the public what we're all about. There were demonstration classes all day. We were even on the news! My husband was the official photographer for the event and I wanted to share some of the pics with you. We had an amazing time.

Shannon the trainer - she teaches rowing, boot camps, and cycling. She's lost a LOT of weight and is a huge inspiration.



 Nikki the trainer...she teaches circuit and Zumba.



Kangoo Feet



Kangooing with my girls.



My FAVORITE trainer, Tania. She teaches all the Kangoo classes.



One of my favorite parts of Kangoo is when we use the hula hoops. SO much fun!






Have you ever seen so many smiles in a fitness class? :-)



One of my favorite couples - They take Kangoo to a whole new level by adding a ballroom dancing element to it.




And just for fun...I know we have the crazy eyes but I had to share this. My Kangoo girls and I went out to celebrate an amazing milestone this weekend...one of the girls being 3 years breast cancer free...and we just had SO much fun. I love them. I never knew my life could be so focused on my workouts and the people I do them with.



I realized a few days ago that when I wrote my original list of reasons that I wanted to lose weight, one of the items was:

45. To learn a sport.

Kangoo is definitely a sport! It may not be a team sport in the traditional sense but it's something athletic that I love to do and I'm pretty good at it. So yeah...another item crossed off my list. :-)
