Plugged In

This week has been filled with music, dancing, and laughter. My Monday night Zumba® fitness class was energetic and filled with my favorite people. I forgot to turn off my Fit Bit after the workout and it's an example of how we continue to burn calories after a great workout.

On Tuesday I got to try out a new class. My sweet friend (the girl right beside me) received her license last weekend and started her own church fitness class this week. She rocked, of course! The class was fabulous and I had a blast!

I am surrounded by strong, beautiful ladies who encourage me every day. They teach me that there's always something to be excited about, that there's nothing like rocking out with your favorite people, and we are so blessed to have each other in our lives. God gave me a big family when He gave me these ladies. I have cried with them, celebrated with them, and prayed with them.

If you're lost and struggling today, please take my advice. Get plugged into a group. It can be a Bible study, a kid's play group, or a fitness class. When I stumbled into my first Zumba® class, I didn't realize how lonely and lost I was. Sure I had my family but I didn't realize how much I needed close friendships. I didn't realize that I needed to mentor and be mentored to. I needed women who tell it like it is, who became my prayer warriors, who fill my heart with joy every day.... Friends, trust me. I know many of you come here with struggles. It isn't just the weight loss. Today, do something for you. Do something that fills you with joy and get plugged into a group. Don't wait like I did. I promise you will never regret it!
