And so we begin

Saturday, November 24, 2012

Losing weight has been going well. I've been working out for a year without stopping. This September I signed up for an essentrics class at a local dance studio and loved it. I know have the dvd. The class has ended and that makes me sad.

I liked the instructor so when she said, "I'm starting a boot camp I think you should come." I freaked.

Boot camp, me? At my age? I took the demo class and survived. The real class starts on Monday. I haven't paid yet. Every time the second hand on clock jumps forward I know the time to make a decision is coming.

Why don't I want to do this?
I'm not 20someting.
I'm the oldest in the class.
I don't think I can keep up.

Why do I want to do this?
It's a personal challenge-to be able to say I did it will be encoraging to me.
I feel it will be the last time I take a chance on trying something like this.
I like the insturctor--she doesn't yell, but she pushes you to be better.

Monday is coming, I feel it in the second hand.

    You can do it! Challenges can often be scary. But you do the best you can. Don't worry about keeping up with the others. emoticon
