Clumsy!

So I tried the kick butt teacher's Monday morning class today. Today was a cardio step class. Sounds easy enough right? I felt like the uncoordinated 7th grader trying out for cheerleading who IS NOT going to make the squad. Of course, it's the first time I've gone & I don't know the steps & I was OFF the entire hour-long class. I must have looked just pitiful because at one point the teacher swapped with the person beside me to try to help me get the steps. I've never felt so stupid. I used to be coordinated, but apparently - get fat, sit on your butt too much & you lose that ability. Oh well, I tried & next week, it should be easier for me to figure out the steps. To the girl who was behind me at an angle - THANK YOU for being encouraging even though I'm sure you had to think wow, this girl doesn't get it. Well, I'm outta here.

Bless your heart! That's just how I felt at Zumba on Saturday until the other girl came in about half way through. Is she not kick butt teacher who throws in more dance? KEEP GOING!!!! You are doing a wonderful job!

i did the step aerobics class for quite awhile when we first moved back, and don't worry....i promise the steps will become much easier real soon!! even after i had been doing it awhile, if i got 'off" or it was some of the more complicated step sequences, would just step back behind my step, and catch up when the finished the sequence. but yeah, it will get easier, and don't worry, everyone's first attempts at it ALL go like that!

You should have seen me at my first belly dancing class. Heck, you should still me at belly dancing class because she changes it every week. I was humiliated after the first class because I felt like such a clod but I have gotten over it and I just don't care anymore. This, for me is a huge, no HUGE thing. I don't like being the center of attention because I ASSUME the others are talking about the fat chic..but in reality no one is and they have all been there. In fact, many have come up to me and said they were the same way. Now, that I have been going to my cardio salsa class for a month and half or so now, I have the steps pretty much down pat and new people come in and are saying the same thing I did my first day. You're not alone. Keep it up. I am proud of you for going. You will find it gets easier and you will feel guilty if you don't go.
