I am late this month in professing what my goal will be for the countdown to 50. This time, I am not going to re-hash the last 6 months, I will save that for the big review in October.
Last night at Zumba, we were laughing about a move that is quite sensual in nature, to be honest. The Latin music oozes that feeling of, I don’t know if I can say it without blushing. I have a difficult time with that move and most moves along that line. I laugh out loud every time I have to do it. Judy says, “unlock your fear to unlock your rear”; and Laurie yells, “make me proud”…..neither of which is enough to get me to do it. So I am going to get my J-Lo on.
A friend of mine is an avid cyclist and was in hotel elevator all decked out in his cycling gear ready for the day’s event. A person in the elevator with him said to him, ” Hey, you’ve got your Lance on”, referring to Lance Armstrong. I loved that story and it stuck with me. Therefore, to apply that image to my situation, I will deck out and get a little attitude like Jennifer Lopez, sound good?
Somehow I think I would be better off with my ‘Lance on’ than my ‘J-Lo on’. This is a stretch for me.
This make take an entourage of assistance from my Zumba pals and friends from hair to make-up and wardrobe. I just threw out the mascara that my friend used on my eyes for my wedding day….. this could be costly and scary on many levels.
Perhaps I will wean into in this month and work on the J-Lo inside. The confidence and the way she carries herself in how she works her professional life. (I cannot speak to her private life). Let’s take it a day at a time and maybe my friends can help me through. I will try to think about it a little less and feel it a little more.
Either way, no one will confuse me for Jennifer Lopez at the end of the month. I can go about my life under the radar having a burger at Jumpin Jacks with my family…..and like Billy Idol sings, “Dancing with Myself”….doing Zumba for the wii practicing my moves in the basement!
