Sometimes I look at myself in the mirror and I don't recognize myself. I still picture myself as the overweight, morbidly obese girl who couldn't jump or touch her toes. When I am looking at a mirror and try to find myself to see how I am doing the Zumba moves I will not realize the thin girl in the purple workout shirt is ME. It is kind of a wonderful, yet weird feeling. I see myself being one of the most high impact moves in Zumba and I don't think it is me. Or, I see someone doing a move and I think to myself, oh I am too fat and out of shape to be able to do that. But, then I say, oh I guess I can TRY to do it, and guess what? Not only can I do it, it is easy!
I am lifting the same amount of weight as the instructor in Body Pump now. But, I didn't even really realize I was adding that much weight to my bar. I just kept saying after a few classes, let me try 2.5 pounds more. I shock myself every day that this person is me.
And, it is just going to keep getting better.
Today's goal 25,000 steps. I am at 20,000 right now.
