Shocked

So, I don't know how it is for a normal delivery, but after I had my C-section my hips, belly, thighs were so swollen that I resembled the "before" picture of one of the biggest loser tv show women. Or, on Mrs. Doubtfire when it shows Robin Williams getting dressed with the big body suit to dress up like a lady-I looked like THAT.
I honestly didn't ever think I would be sexy ever again. Around new years I tried to put on my favorite little black dress...and broke the zipper. Fail.

I had my mom just take the zipper out and sew it up last night and I must say I look so much better than i did a little over a month ago, which is when I started Zumba. I never ever ever thought I'd look in the mirror again and like what I saw. I've been to 3 different instructors but Cammie is the best one and she has a lot of hip hop moves, which is right up my alley!! I have also noticed I can't really push myself while working out on a treadmill or other machine, but I have to go to a class. Doesn't matter if its kick-boxing or step or regular aerobics but I work a lot harder in a classroom setting. But Zumba days are the bomb.
BUT. I don't like how popular its getting. Its getting difficult to have my own space to dance..and what? I have to show up 10 minutes early just to get a good spot? psh.
Tomorrow morning I am going with Cammie and a few of the regulars to a "Zumba Love" party. Don't really know what that entails...but they said Zumba so I immediately signed up.
I think I owe it to my sis Jana for introducing me.
But lets not keep spreading the word, classes are seriously getting too full. In my opinion its a party and NOT everyone is invited.
:D
Oh, and I saw my bro for the first time since the first of the year, and he said my face looks a lot skinnier. G'bye pregnant face! I'm sure I'll be seeing you soon though...

Carly... you should've bought Tracy Anderson.... seriously.

I am the exact same way! I hate running with a passion, but get me in a class and I can actually have fun working out... And then I push myself harder, and want to go again the next day. (I told you you'd feel better after time, whoever told you two weeks after having a baby was on crack)

Although I must say, if you only have to show up 10 min early... Feel lucky. Our gym is insane. Either you have to pay a dollar to reserve a ticket. Which they only reserve out 45 spots, and the other 45 are first come first serve... Which you have to show up AN HOUR early to get. They reserve the pay tickets on the first of the month... And they are sold out on the first day.

It is so crazy, the class is packed and so hot and sweaty. And we are always scratching or hitting each other accidentally. Funny enough though, Dionne is so good... It's worth it. We all keep doing it week after week.

Carly and Jana, you are a great example to me and you both will fit in Carly's black dress soon (wearing it at the same time.) ha ha Zumba sounds like a blast, so I'm getting my own Gym pass so we can party like rock stars when we're all together.

Love you!
Mom

That sounds like fun, but I love to run outside, so don't worry about me showing up to one of your classes :)
