When I weighed myself this morning and the scale said 86.5 Kg’s I was so motivated to keep going, its been a steady decline from 92 Kg’s and now that I’ve added dance to my routine everyday it seems to have a positive impact on my journey. My goal weight of 75 Kg’s is so much closer now! At this point of losing 5.5kgs I can see the drastic change in my face, I’m starting to look alot more like the me that I’m happy with, my clothes that were not closing are now loose around my waist! Yes Man! This is why I’ve been doing this! The feeling of accomplishment is the most amazing feeling and the best thing I can ask for. I know I’m still a long way from the goal, but the halfway mark is knocking at my door.
I’m well into my 3rd month of the weight challenge and as you all know last week I was presented with a new challenge to do videos for my blog. I have been working at building the confidence in talking into a camera by doing a video every time I get the chance. I see improvement and I’m excited to get to the point where I’m just free to chat to you through videos as well as through writing. I’m having so much fun in the process and I think that is what’s important for now. I can’t tell you when I will start posting videos, but it will be within 6 months as that was my timeline. My reward will be breaking another barrier! That for me is the greatest reward. Now is the time for me to grow and as much as there is hard work that needs to go into this process, I’m so fullfilled by the rewards of accomplishment.
I’ve also challenged myself in my dancing and that is why I’ve dedicated myself to half an hour every day to focus on a weekpoint and to go through the videos I’ve been collecting for almost 3 years and collecting dust. It’s been fun! The neighbours think im crazy because all of a sudden im dancing in the garden everyday, but I’m doing this for me and if I have to limit myself based on what other people think any longer then I may as well crawl back into my corner. I’ve let the beast out, and now she wants to play!!! It’s time for the world to brace itself, because theres no turninhg back from here!!! Not for me at least.
I’ve begun the process for my visa application for the Mambo City 5 Star Salsa congress, https://www.salsadance.co.uk/ my appointment is tomorrow and then its a 3 week wait. It’s never a quick process to travel on a South African passport, but its definately worth the effort. I’d like to challenge everyone who is interested in learning salsa to contact Mambo city through the following link: https://visitor.r20.constantcontact.com/manage/optin?v=001_8_suNgqQhFt5t6onoECNsc7vEw4MswV or to follow the Mambo city fans page on facebook:https://www.facebook.com/MamboCity/ Mambo city Salsa groups page on Facebook: https://m.facebook.com/groups/18686097288 and last but not least the Mambo city 5 star group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/13493215458/ . It’s all a mouthful but for your perusal, no stress, no drama. Just do you, and follow your peace.
