Whew, I'm pooped.

OMG! I just got out of the shower, my calves are tight, my thighs are burning and my arms didn't want to raise over my head to put my jammie top on.

I went to my first Zumba class tonight. Oh my geezers! It literally kicked my arse!!!! At first, I didn't think it really looked that hard, watching on you tube and the commercials. Of course, a little about me....I am about 100 pounds overweight, sit at a desk pretty much all day, and have a tendency to break down every once in a while and eat a reeses cup, or butterfinger bar. (Have you seen the cute little butterfinger bites???) Anyway, back on track. So, here I am. For one hour, constantly moving side to side, front to back, around in circles. Sweat dripping into my eyes, hair dripping down my face, ( I jumped up an down so much, I almost passed wind.) Thank God I am the type of person that really does care what people think about me. Although we were all over-weight women in this class, the woman behind me was a little gal, I may have blowed her over. So, with everything else going on, now I have the stomach ache, and of course a charlie horse in my butt cheeks from squeezing to hard. emoticon

Eventually it passed, and so did the hour long torture. I immediately went to stand in front of the fan, shirt slightly pulled away from my body, and cooled off my best buds. Me and my friend stood to chit chat with the instructor. Knowing that it was my first time there, (as the class only had about 25 people in it, all regulars), of course she was asking me how my first time went, and if I felt good. Oh yeah, I wanted to say. I just feel WONDERFUL! Still trying to catch my breathe, I looked at this 5'2", 90lbs soaking wet woman, and said "Yep...had the time of my life. Definately an unforgivable moment!"

I signed up for the ten session class. Back again on Tuesday.

On a different note, I started week three of my Chantix. Not really getting the results that I am looking for with this medication. So far, I am lucky enough not to have escalating blood pressure, or nightmares. I do, however, get extremely nauseous after taking the med about 20 minutes later, lasting anywhere from 5-15 minutes. I do have very vivid dreams, which aren't really that bad. One night, I dreamed that I was grooming my lamb's ear plant, only to turn my head to see that it really was a real lamb's head. A couple of nights after that, I was dreaming that I was in my doctor's office, complaining about the medicine not working. The next thing I knew, we were on the examination table making out. (Thank God my MD is a good looking man of about 36 years of age!!!!!) emoticon

Anyway, instead of paying out a whopping $60 co-pay, I think I am going to have my ear zapped. I hear that works wonders!
