This week as been busy busy so I haven't posted a blog update.
I haven't been the most careful with calories the past week or so. I've gotten lazy and tracked everything after I eat it, sometimes not until the next day (which isn't as helpful). So my goal going into next week is get back on track with tracking.
Fair warning: Venting ahead...
I didn't blog about it because I didn't want to complain, but I am now so deal. ;-)
I went to Zumba a couple weeks ago and left in tears. The class was extremely full that evening so there was no room at all. The people in front of me kept shifting back trying to find space, so I had to shift around trying to find space, and ladies (whose "spots" I wasn't infringing on) got mad and yelled at me to move because I was too close to another lady or "pushing" her into a pole. The whole thing upset me, if I was too close to someone, she should have said something to me, and that particular night EVERYONE was on top of EVERYONE or in EVERYONE'S "spot". The class was simply too full for the size of the room. I obviously do not want to "push" someone into a pole. It was terrible, the ladies were even talking me after class ended and how terrible I was for trying to Zumba. I didn't do anything wrong but go to an extremely full class. I held it together until the class was over but as soon as I got to my car I was crying.
That particular class was also when my hip/glute/hamstring was hurting so I skipped class a couple times after. I've also had other commitments (e.g., work, cleaning, etc.) and haven't been to class. So when I finally returned to Zumba on Wednesday, for the first time in over two weeks, I was dreading it. I just didn't want to deal with mean people again.
Luckily, it felt good. Its a different location (same teacher) and those particular ladies do not attend at this location. Class wasn't overly full so we had plenty of room. And most importantly, it was fun. I think the next Monday I'm not working (I forget if its this coming Monday or the following one that I have a client) I may try a different class in at a different location instead. Zumba is supposed to be a fun workout not somewhere that I get yelled at for something that is not my fault.
