pointless blogging

Friday, June 29, 2012

Just thought I would blog for a minute. Trying to do all the parts and so many times I see journal writing as a recommendation. Still have to work on that water but I am drinking a few glasses each day which is an improvement. Doing some kind of exercise each day but I still haven't worked up the courage to go to a Zumba class. Love Zumba but I keep chickening out right before the class. :-( Aggravating thing about anxiety disorder is knowing in your head, it will be fine... meanwhile your chest is punding and your breath is short and your body is freaking out..... grrrr. baby steps. I purchased some dance games to do with my kids so we can all make some progress and have some fun together.

    I had the same problem. Can get panic attacks from time to time but I finally just MADE myself go to a Zumba class. I stood in the very back, close to the door. Always remember you can leave whenever you want to. That was 2 months ago and I go now almost everyday. It looks more intimidating than it really is.

    You can also do the class at whatever energy level you choose. Just because the instructor has "happy feet" you don't have to do that. My suggestion is to watch a person up front that knows the routine pretty well and follow them, they usually do it a much slower pace.

    At least try it out. You can leave whenever you want, but don't miss the opportunity to do something you may love!!!

    Let me know when you make it to a class!!! Thinking of you.

    I have a panic disorder too, its no fun. I can't get myself to take any classes...its an ordeal to just go to the gym. I usually leave once I get to the parking lot.

    I had the Zumba DVD but Dance Central is a much better workout in my opinion!
