One thing the blogging world has taught me is, you have to be willing to support each other. So this weekend, I made a point to be at the New York Sports Club on 14th st. in order to support my girl/mentor/blogger buddy Cece Olisa of The Big Girl Blog on her second event. If you missed my post on her first event, check it out here. This time around it was all about fitness. So we all met up at NYSC and for the 1st hour we all joined in on one hell of a Zumba class. The instructor True Dog was fantastic. Let me tell you I was sweating like a pig by time we were through.
True Dog definitely is a ball of energy and that is so important for Zumba instructors to have. That's the only way to really get your class motivated. But I digress...after we sweated out every thing, it was now time to open up and talk. And of course fitness was our topic of discussion. I love this portion because to me it's so cool to be around other young women that look like me and have gone or are going through the same things as me as a plus size woman. We discussed everything from getting funny stares at the gym, to people wanting to modify our work outs cause we're bigger girls, to dating (cause of course dating is always up for discussion! lol)
CeCe & myself
Alex, he's just awesome thus I had to add his picture lol
Before and after zumba lol you can't I was tired lol
Me and True Dog after class...I had to snag a pic with this guy, so awesome
Time to sit down and chit chat! Cece leading the conversation!
A great group of ladies, just listening, and engaging on topics that actually pertain to us. If you follow me on instagram, you probably saw all my pics with the hastag #CurvyconvoNYC
Ha! I won another gift, a $25 gift card to Just my Size POW! I tweeted my butt off for this thing lol
Myself with vintage clothing line owner Ose (Uh-Seh) she is just so fly and a great spirit!
My favorite twin bloggers Jeka and Jeke of Le Maison Deux...their blog is awesome, if you don't know about them, you should.
Of course I have no photos of use actually doing the class cause I was too busy sweating. However it was a great day. And I am so glad that I went. Cece did say that this is her last event for 2012, but will be having some great events in 2013 so be on the look out. Thanks CeCe ATGC loves you! Until next time ladies
