Can I Stop Pretending Now?

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

The pain hit suddenly and virulently tonight right before Zumba. I love my Zumba but tonight was tough to find my Zumba Happy Spot. During one water break one of my friends came up to ask why I was so quiet. I told her "Because I'm in pain!" Her reply was to "Step up to the plate anyway." It was a bit hard to do though when every jarring move made me want to cry, but I did it. I got into cheerleader mode and started to liven things up. I even led two songs.

The pain might be due to nightshades. I've been avoiding them lately and had a steak tonight with a steak rub that included chili peppers. But as usual, there are enough variables in my life that I can't be totally sure yet.

I'm also a bit bummed now. I found out that one of my favorite Zumba instructors is leaving after this week and the other one is cutting back from 3 to 2 days. At least I'll still be able to work with her.

    Wow I am sorry that you were feeling badly during Zumba. It's okay to slow down and modify the dance or exercise at any time! emoticon
