Motivation

I had a conversation the other day with someone about motivation. "I'm just not motivated to do anything," she told me.  And I said, "Well, you're too young to not be motivated." 

Of course, hours later, I was still thinking about it.  I consider myself to be a motivated person - I keep my son clean, my family fed, my house clean.  But there are times, especially when it comes to myself, where my motivation tapers off.  I "forget" to do things for myself.  I get "tired" and want to veg out.

And so, in light of the new year, I am jumping on the motivation bandwagon: I am going to carve time out for myself.  I decided to take Zumba lessons.  All motivated, I checked when the classes were held and decided that the Tuesday evening time slot worked for me.  I called this morning to reserve my spot, and the class is postponed until next week.   What the what?  I haven't even started and already, it's not working out.  Oh yeah, I could think that, but I won't.  I plan on taking out my Wii Fit, dusting it off and having some fun on it tonight hula hooping.

Let's get motivated, people!

Motivation? You want motivation? I got yer motivation right here, missy.

*sigh* I'm just so tired all the time these days. *sigh*

And what's this - from the wiki page you referenced: "Zumba is a fitness program inspired by Latin dance. It was founded by Miami-based dancer and choreographer Alberto 'Beto' Perez and two local entrepreneurs: Alberto Perlman and Alberto Aghion."

Why didn't they just name it The Alberto Dance or The Alberto? I mean, really.
