Default Stepping outside my comfort zone

and doing something for ME!!

As a Mom, I find that I put things on the back burner for ME. Last night I had taken my kids for ice cream at a new place in town. Walked around and found a sign for a free zumba class. It was going to start in 45 minutes. Normally I would have just shrugged it off - I mean, I'd have to drop the kids off, change clothes, drive back..... See I can find an excuse for anything.

But I didn't! Drove home (a 5 minute drive) changed (2 minutes) Talked to the hubby (10 minutes) and headed back.

I was afraid I wouldn't be able to keep up. Fall all over myself. I'd be the biggest one there, wouldn't I? Let me tell you, I was having so much fun - I didn't care about all that!!! I lasted the entire hour (barely ) I feel so good today that I'm planning on making this a regular thing!

Good for you! I feel the same way. Zumba is so much fun, you don't even realize you're exercising! And, I can tell you -- you won't get tired of it or bored with it. It's always just SO FUN!

That's awesome! The hardest part is actually getting to the workout, not the work out itself!
