i am a licensed zumba instructor! WOOOOO HOOOOO! this has been my huge yearly long-term goal thingy since 2010, but was put on hold due to my back being injured and the surgery i had to fix it last year. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! the class was today and it was awesome and fabulous and wonderful and inspiring and everything i hoped it would be. i'll write more about it later if anyone really wants to know... but i have things to do tonight. i've gotta get off of here.
never give up on your dreams... no matter what life throws in your way. even if whatever it is seems impossible, it's not. we can do anything!

so i've been back for about a month now but really haven't felt like i've had much of anything to say. this, however, is a pretty awesome announcement.
anyone who has ever read my page in the last couple years has known that for about 2 years now, it's been my goal to become a certified zumba instructor. it was my yearly goal last year, but then i was injured and had to have back surgery in november. i spent the majority of 2011 screwing around and using my "handicap" as an excuse, when really i have no handicap at all. i had surgery, it fixed my problem, time to go back to normal. SO! with that being said, i knew it was time to get serious about my goals again. guess what i did today?!
i signed up for my ZUMBA INSTRUCTOR TRAINING CERTIFICATION CLASS! WOOOOOOO!!!!!
i can't believe i'm actually doing this. i'm beyond excited but also really scared and really nervous. i've never done anything like this before, and outside of my close friends and co-workers, i'm a pretty shy person... kinda. anyway, the class is on saturday, november 5th from 8:45 AM to 6:00 PM at my gym here in fredericksburg. i've got a little over 2 months to get ready for it and have been working hard and seeing changes in myself and my body in the month that i've been back, so i'm confident that i'll be prepared once it's time for training. i found out that i've also got to become a certified group exercise instructor in order to teach, so add on another $400 to the initial $225 for the zumba instructor class. it adds up to a good chunk of money, but what better investment to make than a positive investment in yourself. am i right?! right!
so that's all i've got for now. i may blog a few more times between now and the class, but i really don't feel like i've got anything too interesting to say at this point. i'll definitely blog about it after i go through the training!

so - super fast update. i came back to work yesterday after being off monday and tuesday because of pain/sickness/fever/infection related to one of my widom teeth coming in. U. G. H. now that is some real pain right there. i didn't really know what the hell was going on at first, just that my mouth hurt super bad, and i actually went out and bought a teething ring on friday night (yeah... this has been going on since friday) so i could chew on it... ahahahha. it didn't work, but oh well. i was thinking outside the box, as my dad so likes to say. anyway, i think the infection has gone away for the most part and the pain is easing up, so that's good. unfortunately, i now have oral surgery scheduled for next wednedsday at 8:30AM. the dentist i saw (who is also an oral surgeon) on monday said that my bottom right wisdom tooth is too close to my nerve and the top left wisdom tooth is way too far up in my head for him to be comfortable doing the procedure, so i had to go to an all-surgery all-day-long kinda guy. geez. anyway, i don't really feel well enough to be running or going to zumba or anything like that but i think i'm going to go to the gym tonight and get on the treadmill and walk for a little while and maybe swim as well. it's better than nothing! so i should be around here for the next few days... but after next wednesday i will be MIA for a couple days. booooooo!!! when does life slow down?! anyone? anyone?! it seems like it's always just one thing after the other. blah!

so in honor of this being the first day of march and me kicking some major ass, i have decided to abandon the c25k program for something better. and bigger. and awesome-er. my friend christina and i are going to run a half marathon and my training is going to start TOMORROW! our program takes 12 weeks and will be awesome. i'll be fitting into my stupid pants before i even know it! for now, i'm gonna put zumba on hold. i love it, but really, there are like 90+ people in every zumba class i go to and it's really not very enjoyable that way. i love running on the treadmill (not so much outside... i guess i'll have to change that!) so this will keep me interested and meeting goals daily. i just have to remember to throw some strength training in here too!
here's to a new month - by the time this month is over i'll be doing long distance runs - 7 miles, to be exact! WOOOOOOO!
also, i kinda started to forget about my picture blog... oops!
Day 21 Ė A picture of an exercise you canít do, but would like to try (and then try it if you want to)
in honor of this blog...

i can't run a 1/2 marathon yet, but i am going to DO IT! give me 12 weeks (maaaaybe a little longer) and i'll show you!
