MMM..Did you get out of your comfort zone?


Hey there! 
Welcome back to MMM. Our FOURTH link up!
If you're new go HERE to learn more and please join us:)

My week went pretty good! I was able to hit the gym 4 times. I also went to black light Zumba on Tuesday and Thursday!
I ate OK, but I feel like I could be doing way better. I think ill keep a food journal this week and share with you next MMM... Hopefully knowing that I will share will keep me on track! I also think I am not drinking enough water. By mid day I have been feeling very dehydrated. I defiantly need to keep better track of how I am doing. 
-Soda...eesh. I AM TRYING. I am SO absolutely addicted to Diet Coke. I have with-drawls. I don't know if I will ever be able to stop. Right now I want to set realistic goals to help.
-Do you drink soda??? Have you tried to stop?? How did it go for you?? I NEED HELP!!! 

-Last weeks challenge was to get out of our comfort zone! I did Black Light Zumba:) Freakin LOVE IT!
Yes, I think we should all step out of our comfort zones more often! I will be a dedicated zumba girl!
I was a cheerleader and dancer in high school so it really just brought back so many memories. I felt like I was 17 again. Ha or like I was at a school dance. (but with no boys) haha.

I usually wouldn't go with my hair down, but I was so SO SO excited that I forget a hair-tie. I totally just rocked it hair down. I felt like I was a head-banger with my hair flippin around half the time. When I got home I went to brush it out and had to brush through a full head of snarls. YUCK.

-Did I mention the class is at 9:15...That might not be late to some of you, but this mama was tired...hehe can you tell by my eyes how not awake I am:)
I went with Heather(my baby sis), Jordan and Heather(another Heather) hehe. It was fun, we all went to high school together and live in Cedar now! I definitely recommend going with friends.
 This is why I recommend going with friends. You can get really silly. I was SOOOO tired when I got there, but was good to go once we started messing around before class started.
I was being silly...Yes me, I get silly! Heather snapped a few pictures of me during class. I had to tell people "don't worry it's just for my blog". Haha
<3 these girls! They definitely made my experience a blast! Thanks Ladies!!

 I had a great idea. I want everyone to share something they did well and something they struggled with during the week on every post. This will give me more ideas on what kind of challenges we need to be doing!! 

-NEXT WEEK I challenge you to drink 8glasses of water a day. TRY AND KEEP TRACK! 

-WHAT did you do to get out of your Comfort Zone?

  3. That sounds so fun. I tried zumba once and stunk at it and havent done it since but i really should try it more. I loved your post. You are so fun

  4. I had a great week of working out at least once a day... (photo shoots in a week will do that to you). But I struggle with cutting out sweet... spesh with all the Halloween candy on sale and in EVERYBODY's house!

    With sodas, try cutting back first... one per day, then one every other day, then one per week... eventually you lose your taste for them. Did it forever ago and it wasn't bad after a couple weeks. The next time you have one they'll taste like syrup. Gross.

    Good luck!

  5. I FINALLY linked up!!! Woot woot!!! lol Took me long enough!! That zumba class looks like so much fun! I have the videos but I imagine taking the class with friends would be way more fun. I should look into that. AND just realized your challenge is to drink 5 more glasses of water than the goal I just set for myself for the next week... Hmmm baby steps!! lol

    Hope your week is off to a lovely start!!

  6. Black light zumba seems like a blast!

    I just got back from a 6k run with about 60 swimming laps left in my evening before I get to chill.. not out of my comfort zone at all, sadly.

  7. Awesome and good for you for working out that late! I don't know if I could make it as it is 9pm right now and I'm already in my pjs and in bed!

  8. that class seems so fun!! love all the pics haha! i dont drink sodas anymore...maybe once a weekend. i just gradually cut down on those but my big thing is coffee now...i CANNOT go without coffee.

  9. I'm glad you come to Zumba with me!:) it's so much fun. love you lots. p.s. you are a babe.

  10. Oh Ashley! You are just the cutest! Black light zumba sounds way fun. I'll tell ya what else, just reading your post is motivating me to try something new @ the gym. I've been in such a rut lately. Maybe your post is just the nudge I need to get me into gear!
    As for an antidote to soda- I switched to all natural sugar free sodas foe a while- Hansens makes great diet root beer & diet ginger ale. Then after a whle I switched to lemon or lime sparkling water. It's my fave now. I think they make a berry flavor one too.
    Love ya girl!


thanks for putting a smile on my face today with your comment:)
