First of all, thank you all for your fabulous and supportive comments on my Bandiversary post yesterday.  You guys are the BEST!

Onwards to today's post....

I have noticed a new phrase has worked it's way into my vocabulary... I said it on Monday, then again I said it yesterday.

What phrase is it you ask?

"I'm not brave enough"

Yeah, pretty pathetic right?  Where is this self-defeating attitude coming from?  Hmmm...

Example?  My workout clothes. 

I have always gone with the "safe" big T-shirts and stretch pants. Isn't that what all the Big Girls wear to workout?  Heaven forbid I show anyone my batwing arms and wobbly bits! Gasp!

Wait a minute, I'm not really one of the Big Girls anymore...a Big Girl is disguise now.

So, on Tuesday this is what I wore to Zumba class.  I was a little uncomfortable and out of my comfort zone, but as the class went on, I noticed that I could move more freely to the music.  I had a great time and just let my batwings flap, flap away! :)

PS: tomorrow's weigh in should be good!
