On Sunday, I committed to going to the gym at 8:00am. You have no idea how hard this was for me. First of all, I hate mornings. Hate. I have long wished to become a morning person because the thought of it sounds good but morning just aren’t for me. I’ll stay with being a night owl. Anyway, I made it there a little closer to 8:40am and did my time on the treadmill for a good 40 minutes. I even threw in some strength training for good measure. As I headed back to the locker room, I noticed a bunch of people waiting for a group class to begin. I moseyed over to check the schedule and on a total whim decided I’d take the class too. Even after I said I would never, ever take this particular class again. Me and funky old school dance do not mix.
I found a safe spot in the back of the room for an easy exit if I couldn’t hang. It was a genius move considering the last time I took this class, I stupidly stood so far from the doors that I would totally have to do the walk of shame to get out of there. My next genius move was to shout “ME, ME, ME!” from the roof tops when the instructor asked if it was anyone’s first time. You know, so everyone would cut me some slack. My third genius move was standing behind two ladies who obviously were regulars. This was my saving grace but I think one of the girls thought I was totally stalking her.
I seriously have two left feet and absolutely no rhythm. I struggled, y’all. I looked like a robot and we definitely were not doing the robot. I was a sweaty mess when we were done. And yes, I made it through the whole class! Next time, I think I just need a couple glasses of chardonnay before class. Wine totally makes me a better dancer. Just ask any of my friends who saw me at BlogHer last summer!
Today we’re wrapping week three of the #iwillrockthis weight loss challenge. I really wanted to lose 16 pounds by July 1st. I think I’m realizing that I probably won’t get there by then and that I likely won’t be in a bikini this summer. Don’t count me out though. I’m just shifting my goals a little bit. I’ll lay out those goals for you next Tuesday!
I also wanted to give a huge shout out to Lizz from Am I Funny Girl, Chrissy from The Lazy Pit Bull, and my long-time-friend Heidi (one of the non-bloggers doing this challenge) for killing it in week two! I can’t wait to see how the standings come out this week!
