I'm out of shape. It's not that I don't have a fair amount of muscle, it's just that there's a hefty layer of fat hiding it. My muffin top is obnoxious, and I'd like to look better naked.
I'm worried about my health. I have high cholesterol, and my blood pressure is too high. My family history shows I'm predisposed to diabetes, and my diet has bouts where it is not very spectacular.
Saving grace: I can dance. I was a competitive ballroom dancer for a few years while at the University of Michigan. I love to salsa dance. I've really enjoyed Zumba throughout the last year, and I think I'm going to use it to get into shape.
So, starting now, I'm going to Become Zumba. Here's to, for the first time in my life, following through and maintaining a healthy weight. I hope my journey will inspire, and I hope that I will eventually be able to teach Zumba classes to people who also need help finding enjoyment in exercise.
Follow me along on my process to give and get motivation. Let's all dance our way into better lives!
