I love to put on 50's music and just dance, sing and enjoy. Makes me feel happy!

Sometimes our bodies have other plans, don't they? I have found that when I fight with body's basic needs I always lose. And mind doesn't win, either.

One "gift" of diabetes and riding the insulin roller coaster is that I really GET the body/mind connection. (Well, most times, I believe. I can still forget and operate as if I'm a brain in a jar.)

And how funny: I had a tossing-and-turning night and didn't crawl out of bed until 10 am today!

Besides, you can turn on the radio and just move around your kitchen to the music and you'll be doing Zumba. Move it around, baby!

Have a fun & blessed day.

I hate to admit it but I overslept this morning and did not make it. I will check into it next week. I also have to spend the next 5 hours out in the 50 degree weather trying to sell Boy Scout PopCorn. I feel bad that I missed it but I am thinking of taking time off work and attending one of the other two they do during the week. But thank you as you still have me motivated and am looking forward to it!! I will let you know how it goes!

I'm so glad you are doing this for yourself! Go early and grab the back row if that would help you to be less self-conscious. I was actually in the second row from the back and by the wall. Everyone else was either completely into watching herself in the mirror or the hot instructor, by the way.

It also occurred to me that if I needed to I could cut my moves to half time.

I'm so happy you are doing this for yourself! Looking forward to hearing how it goes for you. I can hardly wait!

Thank you so much for your message. They started a new Zumba class at the gym I go to and it is free. I want to go on Saturday mornings (8AM!!) but last week chickened out that I might not get it. You have inspired me to at least go tomorrow and see how many are still going. It is supposed to be packed so I dont want to go if there is not room but...I know they will slim down as time goes on so I will check it out. Thank you for the inspiration!!

Okay, I've been dutifully plodding along on my run/walk 10K training program, getting it down, feeling good mentally when it's over but... can you say "obligation"?

Yesterday as a treat and an experiment and part of the change it up for Week 5 I went to a Zumba class at the gym. OMG!!! It was SO FUN. The music is awesome. I'd been avoiding these classes because I think of myself as "not a dancer" based on some miserable experiences with partner dancing classes. However, zumba is just moving to incredible, enlivening music. And I gave myself permission just to move. When I couldn't follow some of the foot/arm movements I just followed the foot pattern and let my arms do their own thing.

I really, really encourage anyone who hasn't tried this to check it out for a blast of fun. I am actually looking forward to going back.
