Rainy day...

Thursday, September 22, 2011

I slept in this morning....Nice! Joe had to deliver a car about 45 minutes away so I drove up with him. That was nice. We ended up stopping for some breakfast on the way back....yum. I had an egg beater omlette with spinach, mushrooms and grilled tomatoes. Yeah! I have been resting my foot. So that helps. I fell asleep during Modern Family. Uggggg... such an awesome show but I was soooo tired. Luckily we have it DVRed. I'm heading to the mall soon to pick up a birthday gift for my sister inlaw. Tonight should be quiet. Yay! I need to start working on my house. I've basically taken the week off because of my injury.'s looking kinda dingey. I have to really stay on top of the food. I will spark. I will journal. I'm feeling pretty good. Have a great day!

Life is interesting...

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

So I get an email from the gym I subbed in a couple weeks ago. The instructor needs a sub again and asked if I was available. She also let me know that she got alot of awesome feedback from the students after my class :)...She even said it is difficult to get that kind of feedback from that group :). Unfortunately I couldn't commit because I just don't feel comfortable until the dr. gives me an ok. So I feel so much better about teaching. Thanks for all the kind words and perspective. I will keep this one at arms length. Joe seems to think I overreacted a bit. Maybe I did. I'm a bit sensitive right now with my injury and time of the month and lack of exercise...I don't know. I still think it was rude. I'm really considering waiting to teach until the new year. I'm not prepared to teach until after Hawaii. That won't be until we are back October 23rd. I feel if I go back before that I could hurt it more and end up really uncomfortable on my trip. I don't see how the gym would keep getting subs until then. We will see. I was up during the night fretting over all this. I need to relax. I need to keep perspective. No obsessing. I have another full week before I have to deal with the gym. I'll try and let it be. I had my appt. with my therapist yesterday. I haven't seen her since July. I had alot of catch up to do. She thinks we have handled everything perfectly. :) My next meeting is October 11th. I'll be happy to delve into some stuff next time. We went out with my cousin last night. That was really nice. It was good to get out of my own head for a while. We came home and watched Glee. So awesome! Loved it! Did I tell you that Adam is going to two homecoming dances in the next two weeks? Yup! :) He is such a stud :)...His friend Tori's dance this Saturday and his friend Nell next week at our school's dance. He is all smiles.

    Take a deep breath and step back for a minute if you can. Even with your injury and TOM issues, you are blessed with a good husband, great kids, good friends... Try not to stress over Zumba classes, you have no control over the class or the teacher, focus on you. There will always be people to get under your skin, let them slide off your skin instead, people like this are not really worth the time and effort to worry over.

Can you believe this...

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

So my so called friend in Zumba... we got licensed around the same time and keep in touch with our classes... She did me the honor of texting me to see how I was doing...then decided to inform me that at a class on Saturday women from my class told her they missed the instructor before me! What would be the point of telling me that? Seriously! I"m injured and I can't even workout at all. Who would do that? Not a friend! I"m so pissed off I can't stand it!

    What the h*** was she thinking?!

Why would anyone do something like, except for possibly jealousy? I am sure that there are some at Zumba that do miss the other instructor. Just because of the change. You know, a different person, a different style. We all go through that whether it be classes or work or volunteer services. We have a tendency of missing the person that was there. Eventually, you realize that there are other people who are, perhaps, much better.

Change is good.

I think that the next you see her, ask her how she would like it if you texted the same thing to her.

You are a great, wonderful, beautiful, courageous woman. Don't ever, EVER, let her make you think otherwise.

Take care my friend.

    I agree with Barcle ... Friends wouldn't do that. Next time you see her in person you should call her on it. Let her know that was a painful thing to do. Nothing like kicking you when you're already down. Hang in there, you'll be back to yourself soon. Hugs, Keke

  She should have kept quiet! But, since she didn't use her comments in a positive way. I am sure that some of the women do miss the other instructor simply because they were used to her way of instructing and don't do well with change! Don't give up, keep doing your zumba, and at the next class ask the women if there is anything that they particularly like that they might miss that the other instructor did. Tell them that you need feedback so that you will know what works for them but remind them that you want constructive and positive feedback that will help you become a better instructor. If they think that you are working them too hard remind them to do the routines at their own pace and stop if they get chest pains, anything hurts, etc. Use this as a positive way to become better at something that you love. Remember that some people, friends or not, just don't think before they speak!

    Some people are just so thoughtless. Sounds like she feels threatened by you and is perhaps hoping that now you're temporarily 'down' she can make it an 'out' permanently by niggling at your confidence emoticon

Today is better.

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

I talked to my husband last night. I felt much better. I probably won't be taking another class or teaching one until I get back from Hawaii. That will be safe for me. If I had to wobble around Hawaii because of this I would always regret that. I consciously made decisions not to binge yesterday. It was amazing how much I had to work and blog and journal through it. Between having my period, the inability to workout and being depressed about my classes...well lets just say it was a struggle. I made it though. I really need to watch every bite now that I'm not exercising. Each day my foot feels a bit better. Yay for that. My mom called up last night and talked like nothing had happened. She can be exhausting. I can't wait to get to therapy today. I had to work hard at good choices for dinner. I was going to drive right by a Burger King....Uggggg.... the old me would have ordered an original chicken sandwich with mayo and all the stuff....I wanted it bad. Instead I called my husband and asked him to pick up Boston Market. I got a half chicken, steamed veggies and green beans. It was delicious and alot less guilt and it filled me up. So a new day. Thanks for being good to me!

    My family is like that too. Act like nothing happened, meanwhile, all that happens is festering and stewing in silence. Glad that you are going to see the therapist today.

Way to go for not going to Burger King! Sometimes, it's just simpler to just keep on driving.

blogging again...

I may do this alot. Be prepared. I'm stressing a bit. We had to postpone my one class until January. I also feel I should give up teaching this class at the gym and not teach at all until January. I'm not saying I won't dance until then but teaching is so much on the body. I just don't think I should comitt until then. I know Joe won't agree. I know he will think I'm whimping out. He gets hurt playing basketball and just keeps going. I know I want to do independent classes and I really don't feel like I need to work at a gym. I make no money there and it seems I can do more with classes through this woman who set up my other class. I don't know. I have to think more about this. We will see. I don't want to binge. I'm so worried. Feeling really down.

    You need to find what really works for you and what is comfortable for you. Take it easy on your foot.
