A friend of mine texted me this past weekend to see if I wanted to start going to a Zumba class with her at our local YMCA. Of course I was interested! This is something I have been thinking about for months but, I am embarrassed to say, I was afraid to go by myself. I had anxiety. I didn’t want anyone to see my fat jiggle and wonder why I couldn’t keep up. Having a friend go really helped me get over that.
Last night was our first class and I was not disappointed! It was great! The teacher was fun and she explained things thoroughly. She was also very encouraging. All of the staff and members we met were just wonderful. They were all very sweet. I am officially a member of the YMCA now and I am excited to see how well it works out for me as time goes on.
We ended up taking half of a cycling class after our Zumba class was over and we plan on doing it after Zumba every Monday. It felt so good to work out again! I am definitely feeling good this morning and I’m ready to do it again.
Our next class is Wednesday and I can’t wait!
