Never Underestimate Yourself!
Thursday, July 16, 2009
Okay guys, it’s me again. Normally it takes some time between blogs but I just had to share the good news. Just yesterday I posted a blog about wanting to learn to swim. Well that’s still in the works, remember I have to wait until August 10th to get started with the adult lessons.
Well check this out. My daughter and I went to the Health and Wellness this morning because I wanted to get in the pool. It has been some time since I’ve actually been in a pool so I said, I’ve paid for it, I might as well get my monies worth. Okay, this is it, I learned to float today, I mean in a matter of minutes; under the instruction of my daughter. I think deep inside I had some ideal but it has never materialized until today. Oh My Goodness, I am so hyped, I can’t imagine how I will feel when I actually learn to swim.
Well to continue on, one of my ex co-workers is also a member and she has been for some time now but I’ve not seen her in a few months. We began to talk and discovered that we weigh about the same and can’t wait to get less than 200 pounds. We have a wager to both try to achieve that goal by July 31st, so that’s about 5 pounds in two weeks; I think we can do it.
Long story short, I participated in my first Zumba class, it was different but I enjoyed it. I also got an orientation to spinning, so guess what! My first spinning class is in the morning at 6am the class ends at 6:45am; please pray for me, I’m sure I’ll need it.
So before I close, remember this week’s motto; celebrate your small success, they can lead to big benefits and allow me to add this thought: never underestimate yourself, you never know what you can do until you try.
Let’s live life!
Peace and Blessings
