You Get What You Give (or It's Okay To Be A Little Uncomfortable)

Monday, October 01, 2012

I had Zumba tonight. I was looking forward to class all day. For lunch I went to SmashBurger. It seemed like a good idea at the time. Then when i got back to my desk I looked up the calories in my lunch. 1270! To top it all off and make it worse (if that is even possible) I totally felt my bad choices in Zumba. Seriously? I almost puked.

In class I always push hard. I always go all out to inspire others to do the same. I'm obviously not teaching the class but I am a leader in the class. I am the teacher of the fitness program. It is my job to get everyone else to participate and get healthy. I know people are watching me. I would imagine that is part of why I felt so sick. I was overheated and underwatered. I fed my body junk and it responded in kind. I know better.

On another note, I noticed some others kind of half-assing it during Zumba. Hopefully they were doing all they could do. But I don't think so. I know these women and some of them weren't pushing. It's something that I have to constantly battle while at work. Showing up isn't enough. Flailing your arms around isn't enough. It's okay to be a little uncomfortable! Push yourself. Know your limits, but push past the limits you set for yourself. I can honestly say that I do that about 90% of the time in Zumba. In Yoga I cop out, and I realize that and I'm working on it. I think this is going to be a topic on discussion at our next education session on Thursday night. You get out what you put in... are you putting in enough?
