Reclaiming Your Vitality - The Journey

So it was 5 pm.  I was on the couch.  I'd finally gotten that nap in that I'd been wanting all week.  I am trying to decide if I want to work out or not.  I know I should.  I want to.  And, I'm sort of groggy, tired.  Also I am not inspired to do any particular workout. 


So I put in JMs Ab workout. It's a new one for me and I haven't seen it.  so I watch it sort of on fast forward and pausing when something looks interesting.  I think ok, I can do that.  But I don't want to.  I want to listen to music and party a bit . . . hmm . . . where did that come from.


Suddenly, I realized I wanted to do something upbeat and fun.  So I went to Zumba, which ironically enough is what I'd actually planned to do tonight.


And it was a great fun class.  I introduced myself to the instructor she's amazing.  She's a great instructor, in great shape, and has great music!  I loved her!


I hope to feature in a class or blog entry or something in the near future.

I noticed how alive I felt just sharing with her about my journey.  And listening to hers.  It's a real honor to be able to take this journey with everyone.  And I hope for those of you that are taking it with me or want to join me, you feel comfortable enough to reach out and join me either publically or privately.  Knowing that you are not alone, that I am not alone makes all the difference in the world.
