Day 142-147 Shaking & Moving...Alone

Last week, I went to my Zumba class alone, twice.  Before I went each time, I email three of my friends who went with me in the past and everyone of them said they weren't available.  My sister who lives with me was at work and wouldn't make it home in time enought to come Zumba with me.  At 4 p.m. each day, I was alone in going to my Zumba class.  My first thought was to go but then I got scared and had a mental battle with myself as to wheather or not I should go to Zumba since no one else was going.  After about and hour of this, I consulted my husband and he said, "Yeah you should go babe.  You keep going and get sexier".  Needless to say my mental battle ended but not my fear of going alone.  This was my first time going to Zumba alone and I guess not having anyone to lean on for support while at Zumba frightened me.  What was I scared of?  I haven't the slightest clue but the thought of being alone moving and shaking didn't sit well with me.  Even though my friends weren't available, I made myself go because in the end, no not of life but the end of your journey, all you really have is God and yourself.  If you don't make yourself go after what you want then you will never get what your eyes are set on.

My sis-in-law and I on our way to Zumba. Her first time. She was nervous.

My oldest sister and I home from Zumba.  This was my sister's first time.  We were exhusted!
Oh and even though I have on the same shirt, these pictures are like a two weeks apart.

I've been going to Zumba alone for about two or three weeks now and I notice that when I go alone, I sweat more.  Weird, right? Not really.  When I'm uncomfortable I make jokes with whomever I'm with.  Well, with no one going with me for the last few times, I couldn't make jokes to anyone even though the room is filled with women.  Less talking and more working is what happens to me when I go to Zumba alone.  Go figure, right?! LOL


  1. The 1 thing ive learned with weight loss is: its your body.
    and no one else wants to live happy in it more than you do.

    Proud of you for going! thats what its all about.

  2. I use to be the same way....mentally feeling like I had to have someone with me.... Now I go regardless. As a matter of fact, I'm so consistent that people text and call me begging to join me. I just tell them my schedule and they can choose to go or not...I don't's about me and my health. And you should remember that it's all about you now. Best of Luck.

  3. I see you haven't posted in awhile. Just got back into twitter, and saw you were one of my followers...just wanted to ask if you tried HCG? I know it's extreme,but it was the only thing that helped me when I had a lot of weight to lose. It's only for 30 days but the results will last forever. Hope it helps! Please contact me if you have any questions!!
