Something New

I've got some big news to share. After talking to my husband, talking to some amazing ladies, and praying about it....

I have decided to get licensed to teach Zumba classes! 

One of my favorite Zumba instructors is moving. That leaves my other two favorite instructors trying to find a balance with all of the classes without any back ups. I absolutely love that my church supports the Zumba program and I want to help keep it going. 

Growing up I always loved dance. I spent years dancing, performing and choreographing. I don't mind jumping up in front of people at all now. 

I've always felt that my weight loss story happened for a reason. God brought me through all of it and I believe now is the time to share that with as many as I can. I believe I struggled with it for years so that I may offer hope to others. 
If you'd have told me three years ago (and 77 pounds heavier) that I would be leading some Zumba songs, I'd have thought you were crazy. I never in a million years imagined I would have this opportunity.

  3. That's great! I am SO not a dancer. I was involved in musical theater all during my teen years. I could sing and act but I could not dance! I've been going to zumba at my church and they are encouraging those who want to try leading a song or two to do that. I don't plan on stepping up front ever, but I've enjoyed going.

    1. I stood in the very back for so long. Eventually I inched my way to the front and let that become more comfortable. It was a slow process!

  4. That is so great! I wish I could join your class...I have not found any Zumba classes that I am able to go to since moving out of state last summer. I REALLY miss my Zumba--it is the most fun way to burn that many calories, and I met so many great ladies in class! Hope you have fun with it!
