Now, don't get me wrong -- I realize this has been yet another setback, and I don't like it. However, I also realize that I'm fighting it out with life-long habits I've developed that did me no good yet still had a powerful hold on me. And sometimes they still do have a hold on me.
I missed my weigh-in last week. I was busy, but I could have made it if I'd really wanted to. So tomorrow I will go to my Weight Watchers meeting and take my lumps like a grown-up. I will do a better job planning, and I'll stop at the grocery store to make sure I'm all stocked up with healthy and easy options to go to.
It won't be pretty, folks, I promise you that. But I'll report it honestly, and then I will get busy doing what I have to do to wrestle with my issues so that I can give myself what I deserve.
Now, that being said, I would like to add that it wasn't all bad. I tried Zumba! To give you the full effect of how that went, I'm whipping out my awe-inspiring artistic skills. Now, before you wanna-be artists ask, I can't tell you my secrets to creating perfect form like this. It's just a gift. You're either born with it or you're not. Aaaaaand, apparently I'm not.
I now present "Stick Figure's Fitness Adventures."
First of all, the Zumba class was held in a shopping center, and the building was windows upon windows, to give any passers-by a nice view of the Zumba gyrations.
Wobbly legs? Check.
Sweating buckets? Check.
Out of breath? Check.
But I did it! I didn't stop once, and I felt like I'd really gotten a great workout and accomplished something new!
We were done, and the Zumba instructor pipes up with this little gem. She says, "You know, actually, this Zumba routine was originally designed for senior citizens."

That's just fabulous news! (Read: sarcasm)
It was still a fun experience, despite feeling a little like a doofus for thinking that the old-lady routine was challenging. In fact, I might go again tomorrow night!
