Thank you to Ubisoft for picking me to be a member of the Just Sweat Dream Team and sponsoring this fitness series. Please click here to learn more about Ubisoft. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective. All opinions are my own.
It's been much easier this month. Things have settled down and I've been busy creating new websites, going on vacation and most importantly, doing my Just Dance!
These days I do Speed Shuffle on Just Dance 3 most of the time. There have been some pretty late night sessions (I count it as the same day as long as I do it before I go to bed, since I'm quite the night owl and keep weird hours sometimes) but I still have done it 5x a week for 30 minutes at least. It's a great habit to have.
I'm back on track for losing weight. I've been steadily losing weight over the past few weeks. I did gain 3 pounds according to the scale this week (pffft), but I really don't think I truly gained. I had just been on a vacation where yes, I did eat extra at some moments, but I am positive I didn't eat that many extra calories on top of my daily requirements. We were also doing a lot of hiking during this time, so I was burning off a lot of those extra calories. I'll just have to wait and see, but I think it was just one of those flukes and it will be off the scale next week.
I'm now able to do a lot more fitness-wise. We just did a brutal hike up the side of a mountain to go see some caves. While I still did struggle (asthma and all), I made it up. I also was able to hike around Arches National Park.
My clothes are getting looser too. I put things on and notice that I get to cinch them in more or they look funny. I switched shirts the other day because I noticed that it just looked too big :)
I've lost less weight than I thought I would by this point. You know what, though? It's ok. Life is funny that way...never seems to go how you've planned. I've had some obstacles pop up and I've survived and pushed onward. I never truly gave up and I will lose this weight!
Weight: 245.8 (technically :) I'll leave measurements until next month's final update. It will hopefully be a pleasant surprise for me! Minutes of Just Dance From 8/11-9/10: 717 I'll be putting up a bonus video soon...I have a cute one doing it with kids, but I'm ill today so I'll edit it soon. It's adorable :) Check out the Just Sweat Dream Team's progress on Pinterest
