"i could NEVER do that!"
that was me, three weeks ago...saying i couldn't start going to the gym every day.
i came up with every excuse in the book.
i'm too tired.
i JUST had babies. (um, half a year ago???)
i don't want to leave my kids in the childcare room, twins are too hard to take care of.
i don't want to pay to join a gym.
i'm too clumsy for group fitness.
i have shin splints.
i'm not good enough.
i'm 33 and i've never exercised. it's too late.
i'll make a fool out of myself.
you name it. i said it.
and here i am, three weeks later...taking a class every day.
i joined the YMCA and i LOVE it.
don't get me wrong...it is HARD. hard. i am awkward. i am clumsy. my face is beet red and i look like i've been swimming at the end of every class.
zumba is the funniest. my friend catie described it perfectly.
"i feel all shakira and like i'm killing it, and then i look in the mirror and look like elaine from seinfeld!"
but i'm happier. i feel better about myself. i am slowly feeling more like me. i am learning the "steps" to zumba, turbo kick, step...but also, that hour away from my girls lets me think about ME. for a little bit i can concentrate on getting back to the me i want to be.
not that i was ever a "me" that exercised.
i have never REALLY exercised in my life. i played lacrosse in high school but past that the only thing i've done is a brief foray into crossFit w/ j (which was TORTUROUS, as some of you may remember. hahaha).
i will admit, i might be a bit obsessed. monday i took two classes in a row, and today i did as well.
i'm always like this when i start a hobby. i used to scrap like 2 pages a day,hehe!
it keeps my mind off worrying. and gives the girls time with someone other than ME!
so, even though i though i could never do this...i'm doing it. and even liking it. who would have thought?
i can totally do this! even if i trip over my own limbs doing it.
