I'm Soaring!

Well the competition officially started yesterday with our kick off meeting tonight. I've been logging all my food & getting the 8 minimum glasses of water daily (which is a BIG change for me). I'm pretty proud of myself so far - I've been eating pretty clean. Our playdate ended up lasting till about 6pm, so I didn't end up getting a workout in yesterday, but I did make it to the 9am Zumba class at the recreation center. It was a great workout. Yes, I looked like a fool. Yes, I was the biggest girl in the class. Yes, I stumbled around trying to figure out how to do the steps correctly some of the time. BUT - I COMPLETED A ONE HOUR WORKOUT. I feel GREAT!! I'm already sore, but so proud of myself. I didn't worry about all the normal things I worry about. I'm taking this bull by the horns & facing this challenge head on. Everyone in the class seemed really nice & I especially appreciated one lady who took the time just before class to tell me, don't worry - we all feel kinda stupid doing the moves. It made it so much easier for me. Instead of stressing about how dumb I probably looked doing, I just made the most of it & sweated my butt off (or at least I hope I did). Well, I got a few things to do before I pick up Alyssa from school - so I'm off. Have a fantastic day!!!

Way to go, and you know she was right! Every time I go to a class, I always feel stupid, but I go at my own pace and don't worry about anyone else, I'm not there for them anyway. You should be so proud of yourself.
