Transforming From The Inside Out

Sunday, February 17, 2013

This week has been wonderful. I've been to three Zumba classes and feel awesome through and through. I can feel the transformation beginning from the inside out. My emotions have been more upbeat and I don't feel stressed and lonely like I did just a couple of weeks ago. I read an article on Sparkpeople a couple of days ago titled, "Bust Your Bad Mood With Exercise" that was very helpful. Here's the link if you're interested:

I also gained inspiration from my Zumba instructor. During class yesterday morning some people were making a few mistakes (including yours truly) and my instructor extended some words of wisdom that was shared with her at one time, "There are no mistakes in Zumba, only unexpected solos." She shared an article that was quite moving from North Jersey.com. A man shared his thoughts about his experience during his first class while watching his wife dance next to him (who had some serious health issues). This is the link:

There are so many forms of exercise out there and I'd love to be a runner or cyclist, but for the moment, this works for me. I hope everyone has the opportunity to find a form of exercise that will help them feel a transformation on the inside, and not just something to do in order to lose weight.

    I love the line about unexpected solos. I've been to a few classes where I've had some solos of my own. Keep up the classes since it's working for you!
