Body media LINK! And Zumba

Yayyyy! It’s here, charged and in use! My bodybugg arrived. And I already ordered—-received a custom skin. A Prince symbol and the words Rude Girl.

Cause P inspires me in so many ways. Besides being the god of guitar and sexiness, he’s conscious, a vegan, gives back to the community, and tries to learn about the meaning of this crazy world. Anyway. He called himself rude boy years back.

But Rihanna has a song with it in it, I love her dancing and style, so the two together fit me and motivate me.

Ate on plan.

Zumba for 50 minutes. Knee holdin up. Going to buy glucosamine if I can find a carb free liquid. Anyone?

That’s all. Sleep has been awesome. Stress level low. Lovin life!

I’m on fire this time! Because I know. I know how it felt at 177 and I want that again. I will have it. Soon enough.

Just keep showin up— that’s half the battle. Yes?


This never posted. So I’m down 17 pounds and love my bodybugg. Skin came in.



Good news!

Hello anyone out there!

I have had a wonderful last two weeks. I started the Atkins diet again, for the second time in my fat life. Since July 8 I lost 14.5 pounds. That’s about the average. Nevertheless, I am super excited about that. I have started to incorporate exercise into my plan.

My teen and I joined a gym last week. I’ve started doing Zumba again with crazy modifications so as not to injure my poor arthritic knees. Regardless of the modifications, based on my heart rate Monitor – I burned 799 cal. Not too shabby 🙂

We have also started cycling again – we went on a wonderful one hour night ride on the local university campus which was barren of all kids pedestrians and otherwise. I completed a 28 minute bike ride today between jobs at work and burned 400 cal all in the 100° Arizona sun. All I had to do was make sure I was hydrated!

Finally, I returned the Fitbit last week and ordered the bodybugg once again. The bugg is now called BodyMedia link I believe. It’s the same contraption the biggest losers wear. I had one back some five years ago perhaps, and although it’s outdated – it still works.

But the newer model works on Bluetooth – and that’s just so much more convenient. I opted for the newer link model so that it would work with my iPhone 5. I’m super excited about its delivery tomorrow and can’t wait. Sometimes the grass is not greener.

That is about all for me – I am going to eat clean on induction still for the next two weeks. That is my goal – and my reward is a pair of split sole aerobic shoes for Zumba class with a Pivot patch! What in the world? But I’m excited about them -so that’s that 🙂

Fitbit vs bodybugg

Had bodybugg for my last major Weightloss before the baby… Loved it.

Did some research and decided to give the smaller, more features having, can shower with it fitbit a try.

Results in a week. Cool gadget. $100.

Will see if it tracks cals burned as well as my polar hrm. A little rough to put on and a lot of small pieces. Pro is its Bluetooth connection with smart phone. So I can launch the app and know where I am instantly.

Good day. Clean eating. I’m on a roll. Keep up the momentum.

Quit sugar, most carbs, starch… No more cravings. That’s nice. 3 days and done.


For fun… Me at 177 from 283.


I’m back. For the duration.

Decided to take drastic measures!

Went back on Atkins. Did it in 2005 and lost 80 lbs.
