We're having a heat wave, a tropical heat wave...

Summer heat has arrived here in the Portland area. Whew! Thank goodness for air conditioning. Unfortunately, my MS heat intolerance is flaring up something fierce, making it difficult for me to do my beloved Zumba.

Thursday July 3 was particularly annoying; I wore my ice-filled cooling wrist wraps, but still got overheated so that my nerve signals to my muscles were getting messed up, my tremors flared, and I was a bit dizzy. My friends noticed, and made suggestions. My instructor noticed, and asked one of my friends to help me. Jody asked a wonderful woman dancing by the big fan to trade places with me, which she gladly did. I was fine with the fan cooling me.

Sunday was rough again, even though I took extra ice packs, including ones to wrap around my neck and ankles. Today, I went to Pilates instead of Zumba Gold. A different instructor, and she kicked my butt. :o) Didn't help that the room was hot; better when she turned on the little fan in the front of the room.

I love challenging myself, and will continue to do so. Today I did these mermaid leg raise things that I know will have me sore in places I didn't know I had muscles in!

My weight is stable; I'm okay maintaining my goal weight, though I'd prefer to be 5 pounds lighter or so. I'm focused on being as fit as possible by the time I schedule my other knee replacement. My partner comes first; scheduling a lumbar injection soon, then a laminectomy when that wears off, or work levels off.

I must get up and make dinner, and Mexican skillet dinner, low-sodium enough to send a few servings to my partner's mom, along with some of the turkey meatloaf I'm baking early tomorrow morning (before it gets real hot!).

Ain't no rest for the wicked...I listen to too much KINK radio, lol!

Last night was amazing! My profile picture is now a photo of me with Gina Grant, before her amazing CAME HERE TO PARTY TOUR with Dahrio Wonder. 90 minutes of Zumba master class; I was dancing along with my favorite Zumba instructors, a lot more I've heard of or seen of facebook, as well as a bunch of my friends. Zowey! What an incredible experience.

Hundreds of people all dancing together, sharing a love for the dance, sharing the dance floor, sharing an endorphin high, hugs, sweat, laughter, etc. Instructors joined the fabulous Gina on the stage for a song, another group for another song a little later... Dahrio sang, danced with Gina, amped up the energy level... Wow.

I took short breaks for water, to wrap a cooling scarf around my neck (at the end I tied it on and wore it dancing). I melted all three ice packs I brought for my cooling wrist wraps. I was totally drenched in sweat, my undies rode up in the back, my knee ached, but I was grinning ear to ear, feeling the LOVE!

A group of us went to a nearby BBQ place after (my partner joined us), but I couldn't eat much, just a grilled chicken breast with killer bbq sauce and a mess o greens, and wound down from the incredible experience.

Today I was sore, but still happy, and the scale was kind. I went to Zumba Gold, and danced at a much lower impact and energy level. It helped work out the kinks, and those of us that went to the party last night laughed and groaned together.

I'll probably end up eating a little extra today. I've been doing so well in preparation for the party, and I want to cut loose a little. Not too much, because I'm really enjoying the changes I'm seeing and feeling in my body. My Zumba pants were still a little snug, and my loose belly skin pooch could be seen through my burn-out top in photos, so I'll only 'cut loose" a little. Tomorrow I'll be back to keeping it light.
