On Dry Land

Friday, June 15, 2012

After yesterday's fiasco, I decided to exercise on dry land! I've done Zumba in the past -- Zumba in the afternoon, Zumba @ school, Zumba Parties @ midnight. Today it was Zumba at 5:30 AM -- yes 5:30 in the morning. When the alarm went off this morning at 5am, I almost rolled back over. But I stuck to my plan. Now it would have been nice if someone else felt that committed and showed up for class. Just me and the instructor. She asked if I wanted to exercise. I did not get up at 5am, put on exercise clothes and drive 2o minutes to go back home without accomplishing my goal.

20 minutes later I wished I had kept my big mouth shut. I wanted to quit-- my feet and my calves were hurting! I looked at the clock and told myself that I would leave after 1/2 hour. I was eyeing that door but magically at the appointed time, those endorphins kicked in and I finished!

    Good for you in completing Zumba. I know I would not have made that class at 5:30am. I am so not a morning person. But, you had the instructor to yourself, how awesome is that! Keep up that hard work and you'll be at your goal in no time!!!

    Way to go!!!!

    I honestly cannot imagine getting up early in the morning to exercise. You are an inspiration!!!

    I wonder if the instructor wanted to go home and go back to bed. LOL I totally agree with you, though. If I go to all the trouble to get up, dressed and drive there, OF COURSE I want to exercise! Silly instructor!
