Weekly Goals Check In 4-8

The weekends are never long enough. Just me?

I need to update you on my dance audition! I showed up wearing sneakers and work out clothes (because I didn't know what else to wear.) I was one of the first people there (I went with another friend of mine who isn't a trained dancer) and since we were auditioning for friends, I felt pretty comfortable.

We said hi and then one by one, 10 trained dancers walked in, and started stretching. I was like 90% sure I had no chance, but once they all came in, it bumped up to 100% lol. BUT I didn't let that ruin the fun for me. The instructor taught us a dance in about 20 minutes, then we had 5 minutes to practice, then we had to perform.

I felt about 75% on the dance. I knew if I could practice it about 50 more times, I could get it. I didn't look as good as the 10 professional dancers (or even the 5 non professional dancer friends there that have dancer sized bodies) but I felt awesome. I felt like I was moving my body in a beautiful way and even tho it was extremely hard, I was proud that I was doing it.

Needless to say, I didn't get it. BUT my friends really cheered me on and were very supportive and they were happy I put myself out there. I am happy I did to. It motivated me to keep losing weight. It motivated me to look into taking a dance class and becoming skilled.

Anyhoo, moving on to last week's goals :D

1. Buy new jeans.  I blogged all about my new skinnies on Wednesday :D I love them
2. Run an hour. Admittedly this should have said "do cardio for an hour" but whatever lol. I did it! On Monday, Wednesday and Saturday we did the treadmill for a full hour.
3. Bring lunch to work. This one wasn't super tough so I am happy to tell you I did it!

Last week's goals were kinda easy lol. I am ready to challenge myself this week!

As you probably knew from this post, I an not very good at walking in heels. And as you know from this post, I got the cutest pair of wedges EVER from Payless a few weeks ago. My goal is to wear those cuties to work one day next week, and wear them all day! Wish me luck!!

I have a BodyMedia (formerly bodybugg) arm divice that tells me how many calories and steps, etc, I get a day. I really plan on blogging about it soon, but I have a goal to get at least 10,000 steps every day this week! 

I will be the first to admit that our new healthy eating has been lacking a bit in deliciousness. It has been fine because we have a routine, but I want to try something new this week. 

I think these will give me a solid challenge this week. I don't know about you, but I really do love setting these weekly goals! Making some goals? link them up below! 

btw! I have an awesome giveaway starting tomorrow so make sure to come back and enter to win!!!

  1. Sorry to hear that you didn't get the part. At least you tried and it's nice that your friends were there to cheer you on!

  2. That's so great you auditioned! PROUD OF YOU!!!

    And I'm definitely interested in this BodyMedia you speak of.

  3. How fun that you tried out!! It's tough to put yourself out there but you did it, who cares if you didn't think you were the best, it's about the experience and the fun! Go you!

    If I can help in the "try a new recipe" category, let me know - my main blog is a healthy recipe blog :) ahealthymakeover.blogspot.com

    Have a great week, Jess!

  4. You are so brave to put yourself out there, how fun. I really like the idea of trying a new recipe.

  5. props to you for having guts to audition like that! i definitely am wayyyyyy too self conscious for that. i can barely get myself to go to a workout class at my gym (one of my goals this week haha)


I would love to hear from you! Have something to say? Say it here!
