So I’ve been on this journey… and I’m really close to being where I want to be.  But at the same time, where I am is where I want to be because I know the mountain I’m climbing is worth it.  I love who I’ve been, and I love who I’m becoming.  And isn’t that really what it’s all about?  Love yourself and love others well.  Surround yourself with those who lift you up - you don’t have to do it alone.

Some days I can’t tell that I’m making any progress when I look in the mirror. But I feel better, I feel stronger, I fee different so that’s what I’m gonna rock with! Tonight’s #zumba class went well. Gonna me on workin hard. #losingweight #wlsinstacrew #weightloss #weightlossjourney #dieting #gettinghealthy #getfit #fitfam #instafit #fitness #fitspiration #motivationmonday #healthy #fitspiration #zumbacardio #gymrat #motivationmonday #fitlife #dance #dancing #dancecardio

Imagine: The Iscariot, Millennium, and the Hellsing Organisation attending Zumba once per week, dancing their hearts out.

Haha, thank you anon for the imagine! :D

1 hour of #zumba complete! I love when the instructors incorporate older dances into the rotation because most of them are brand spanking new to me! I’m telling you guys if you haven’t yet tried ZUMBA- DO IT NOW! It’s a cardio workout unlike any other! We work everything from head to toe including your flutes and shoulders! Find a local class and try it! Even if you don’t have rhythm don’t worry I guarantee you there will be others in the class who don’t have it either! But your all moving and that’s all that matters!!! #cardio #dance #dancing #dieting #dancecardio #fitfam #fitlife #fitness #fitspiration #instafit #inspiration #weightloss #wlsinstacrew #weightlossjourney #getfit #gymrat #gymlife #gymselfie #gettingskinny #gettinghealthy #sweatselfie #motivation #workout

I tried Zumba tonight.


I’m the worst dancer in the world, combined with horrible rhythm equals torture for an hour. The worst. Absolutely the worst.

I had free passes to a gym so my friend Rob and I went. He’s a really good dancer so he loved it. I felt so out of my element and awkward. Nope. Not happening.

In other news, I’m in a really confusing place right now. Sorry I’m vague. I really can’t say much. Suffice it to say, I just don’t understand people sometimes.

Thanks for all your compliments on my hair friends! I do love my mane! ;)

Pic with zumba lovelies @sweatthesweetstuff @mamarazza from Saturday’s International Women’s day event @lornajaneseattle great day! Always fun to meet fellow fitness junkies 💕💕💕 #funeralformyfat #lornajane #zumba (at Lorna Jane Downtown Seattle)


Tonight my Zumba friend Rachel made her instructor debut! She will be team teaching my Tuesday night class with me until she’s ready to go on her own. Tonight she started with 3 songs and I am sooooo proud of her - she is such a natural! I can’t wait to see her do a full class.

(Also, gotta give a little shout out to myself for having a good food day. I was craving ALL THE CARBS but I maintained control and came in well under my calories for the day. NSV!)

No more excuses! I’m working towards summer and a happy me! Because I definitely am not happy at the moment with my body! Took a video of me workin out yesterday and I hated looking at it! It’s made me more motivated! So no matter what, I’m trying to dedicate more or less 30minutes daily! This is what I want more then anything so why can’t I just do if and be happy! Iv also realized two things, that I’m less inclined to eating bad food, knowing I have to work really hard to burn it off! Plus I’m actually feeling better and closer to my goals, must be the endorphins! No matter what! Keep at it! Slowly slowly you’ll get there! #fitspoholic #fitspo #fitness #fitspiration #workout #zumba #weightloss #fitfam #fit
