This weekend was a such a lovely change from what I usually do every other weekend, with the exception of Friday since I attended my group's presentation but I am happy to say that I didn't drink like I normally do. Only had 3 beers and went home to sleep!
Saturday was even better. My husband and I attended our friends' wedding and although I ate like there was nothing better to do I couldn't help it, the food was just delicious! I felt that I ate since the minute I walked through the door until the party ended! But at least I was good and only had a combined total of 3 drinks again! I danced more than I usually do and I only felt a slight leg cramp coming on, nothing I couldn't ignore. Usually by the second song my legs want to seize up and I am forced to sit. I must admit that all the daily walking and the weekly zumba class (so far on my 3rd!!) has helped me build more stamina. I have been more physical since I started back up with SP in September and since my first zumba class 3 weeks ago I haven't been forced to use my asthma pump, although due to a slight cold that I have the asthma cough has been present this week.
Sunday was just as awesome... I accompanied my daughter and my husband to their dance rehearsal and since one of the dancers was missing the choreographer asked that I just walk through the movements so that she could see how the whole routine worked and if any changes had to be made. After 4 hours of "walking" the routine I had the whole thing down pat, had to roll up my jeans, take off my boots, and mop the sweat pouring down my face because by the end I was basically just dancing along with the team and no longer "walking" it. lol.
If this keeps up I will actually be able to practice alongside team instead of just watching them for 4 hours a week! I actually look forward to exercising now and I am starting to crave it! This combined with being more aware of what I eat makes me feel great almost everyday!
With love, the future me!
