Since I started my journey to personal fitness years ago I’ve learned a lot. I taught myself how to run even though I was never a runner. I learned how my body works and how I can better stay fit and healthy.
I also found my hips. I found dance when I found zumba. I found more than just a cardio class I found a real challenge for my body. A flowing dance that not only challenges my body but my mind. As the years have passed I found my hips. I always knew they were there but I almost forgot how to use them. Layers of baby fat from three pregnancies didn’t help either but with every movement of my feet I am free. I feel the music and my body moves swiftly. It took me a long time to get here to really know my body. To feel every breath, in and out, in and out.
I found fitness freedom this year. I know exactly where I am and where I want to be. I know where I am happy and I hope to never lose dance in my life. I don’t count every step any more. I don’t live with a fitness bracelet on attached to how much activity I am getting. I’m taking slow and purposeful movements now, because every one has meaning now. I know I’ll get to where I want to be.
