i’ve been meaning to blog about this for days now – but i have been busy and sick
poor me right?
i can do alot of things alone. i actually enjoy doing things alone.
i have no problem going to dinner, the movies, road trips on my own.
i once debated going to a resort on my own – just for the peace of mind – but a part of me thinks that might just be too much alone time.
when i was in college and money was tight – i would still treat myself to an over the top dinner at a restaurant on my own..about once a month.
i would sit there and sip on my wine and write.
i would over tip – because i found the experience and the quiet so amazingly wonderful.
apparently there are some things i think that i can’t do alone.
one was go to the gym.
it was imperative that i had someone to go with me – otherwise i knew that i would not go and it would be a waste of money.
as i’ve mentioned before over here – i used to have great anxiety over walking into a gym alone.
same goes for the Zumba class i wanted to go to.
i somehow felt more secure jumping around like an idiot if i had someone i knew doing it with me.
no one wanted to go with me. so i had two choices. either face my fear head on
or just not go.
so i put on my fat pants and sat on my couch – feeling guilty as every second passed by.
LB gave me a good talking to. this is something i have wanted to do forever. she told me i didn’t need anyone
she said i would come home and wonder why i didn’t do it sooner.
and so i went.
and oh my god – i loved it!!!!!!!
sure, i was scared. i was born with two left feet. i can’t dance unless i’ve consumed alcoholic beverages
and i am sure even then i just think i can dance
but probably look like a big ol’ fool.
my instructor is amazing. she made me feel ever so welcome and has all these crazy ass moves that i know my hips were never designed to do.
i didn’t care – when in doubt – jump around like a mad fool!!!!
i felt a little bad – cause i spent the hour just staring at her ass.
it made me feel like a pervert…
but i had no idea what i was doing – and apparently you gotta do alot with your ass in these classes.
and so i had to stare.
If you are reading this Suellen i am sorry 🙂
when i was done i felt amazing. it was some great cardio – and i was sweating from head to toe!!
i drove home – which is 8 minutes away…and when i went to get out of my car i was already sore
that can’t be good.
that was Friday – it is now Tuesday and only today did i start walking like i wasn’t 80.
my body has never, ever hurt that bad. ever.
that bad side to this – if there ever is a bad side…
i was so pumped up after my class – i was awake until 2am!!!!!!
guess i won’t be doing a Monday night class if i plan on working the next day
So i faced one of my fears – and i plan on going back for more.
i don’t need anyone to go with me – i am perfectly capable of making an ass out of myself in front of strangers and feel ok about it 🙂
i’ve come down with some crappy head cold – i am hoping it’s gone by Friday so i can go jump around
like a mad crazy ass fool!!
i have a new addiction. Zumba rocks my socks!
