Today was a great workout day! I missed my Wednesday night zumba last night because I had to work. I haven’t missed a day of zumba since I started going a few months ago unless I was at another workout (or I missed 1 with the flu). I was feeling pretty awful about not going last night. Not that I could help it. I was making some much needed money so there wasn’t a choice.
After I left work, I decided since I didn’t make it to zumba, I would walk to my husband’s work. We are a one car family and he wasn’t supposed to be out of work for at least a half an hour. I made it 2 miles before he called to ask where I was so he could pick me up. I would have made it all the way to his work, but about 5 minutes in I developed a blister on the top of my foot (my shoes were too big and it’s not like I had a spare pair of sneakers with me).
So after feeling pretty lazy yesterday, I decided today I was really going to push myself. After a day of packing and unpacking (yup, we’re moving!) I went to WOD for an hour. I did tons of frog jumps, some rowing, some burpees and on and on. I was so hot and sweaty that even the skin on my arms was bright red. After WOD, I decided to stay for zumba.
I do WOD at a different gym than I usually do zumba at, so it was a different place, some different songs and a different atmosphere. I spent some time getting a little lost of some of the songs I hadn’t done before (and it was harder to hide since it was a smaller crowd) but I managed and it was fun. Don’t get me wrong, I love doing zumba where I usually do it, but I spent more time smiling, I may have even laughed a time or two, which is unheard of during a workout.
I also had a bit of an I need to go shopping moment. At they gym I was at tonight, they do zumba in front of a mirror. There I was in my yoga pants and my 2x shirt, and seeing myself in the mirror I decided it might be time to take this shirt out of circulation. I’m now wearing a medium to a large so this 2x, as you can imagine is rather flattering.
I know for me the purpose of a workout isn’t to look sexy, but looking in the mirror, I determined, I have earned all 60 of the pounds I have lost, I deserve to look like it everywhere I go, even if it’s to the gym to get red faced and sweaty. So I guess it’s time for a trip to Goodwill!
Oh and after all this, I’m up to 220 squats in my squat challenge so I guess I better get my butt up off the couch and get it over with, before my earlier workouts catch up with me.
