My name is Tanya and I have an addiction

Pin It
To PINEAPPLE that is!  Growing up I absolutely HATED pineapple.  I've gone 36 (almost 37) years refusing to eat it.  At a meeting at work last week I decided I was going to force myself to try it...why not, I've tried kickboxing, Zumba, Step and a whole host of other things lately, so what's a little pineapple over the lips?  Guess what??  LOVED it.  They are on sale this week (2 for $5) so I bought a cored one and ate the entire thing between Saturday and Monday and I'm ready to go back for another one!  It was like eating candy!  I think the problem growing up was that the pineapple that we had was canned.  I've tried "fake" pineapple this week (in some yogurt) and I still don't care for it, but I am a convert when it comes to the fresh stuff :)  Long live the pineapple!

Yesterday I saw Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2011 for the Wii at Costco for $18.99 and on a whim I bought it...what was I thinking??  Jillian scares me at the best of times (although I don't find her that scary on The Doctors...I miss her terror trips from BL).  I got home tonight after spending the day out of town with a friend (spa day, FOOD and more food) and I was too late for Super Power or Zumba, so I popped Jillian into the Wii and away I went.  I did the training part for 40 minutes working on Abs and upper body....man oh man!  I was dripping with sweat...woulda posted a picture for you but I'm too beat to walk across the room to get my Blackberry to take the picture :)  It was a great workout - much more effective (I think) than the Wii Fit Plus workouts...I was panting through most of it - there's no way I could have carried on a conversation, so I put it in my WW tracker as high intensity and earned myself 10 Activity Points (only 2 fewer than I would have earned at Zumba :) 

Back to work tomorrow...it's going to be hard after being off for 4 days...hoping to make it to water aerobics tomorrow night, but we are supposed to get a storm tomorrow (snow or rain, dunno which...hoping for just rain!) so we'll see how the weather holds up...that's all I want to do is walk the 15 minutes to the bus in the snow after doing water aerobics for an hour...
