Last night I joined the Zumba class they offer in the pool at the gym and let me just say it is a lot harder than the regular one. The instructor was really nice I explained about my ankle and she said we can modify the moves so don't worry (as long as you are moving that is the most important part). We started off slow and then worked our way up through the moves (a lot of them are just like the ones in the regular class). The instructor was a little distracted and I could not figure out why but I finally did.......while we were doing the class she keep moving us from one side of the wall to the next (turn left turn right etc) and I noticed everyone staring at us. Well I have come to just not worry about anyone else and just enjoy what I am doing and know that I am doing what I need to do to achieve my goals. Well I think she did not like them pointing and laughing at us so she turned everyone to the wall so that we could not see them. Now I understand when you are watching someone taking a class that you are curious but don't be rude! We are all working on the same goals and respect is what is needed. I was fine but one of the ladies in the group got out because she got embarrassed. My hope is she will come back and not let these people run her off. I get embarrassed really easily but when I want something I go for it 100% and try and not let my fears get in the way and not let others interfere on what I am trying to do. Please show some respect (parents stop your children from pointing and laughing and just because you think someone cannot hear you they can your comments can hurt!).
In all I really enjoyed it I am a little sore today but really feel good and I plan on going again soon. Tonight I am off as well as Friday but on Saturday and Sunday I plan to attack my routines and get back on the wagon 100%!

I Moved Back to Washington, DC - I planned to write this post months ago, way in advance of our move. When I know I have a lot to say, the thought of starting feels overwhelming. But now the…
