Monica Aldama is leaving it all on the mat…or rather the dance floor.
"Thank you DWTS! The abs are starting to make a comeback," she wrote alongside a photo of herself pointing at her abs. "I've officially been in LA for 2 weeks and 3 days but it feels like much longer. I've been practicing for a week and a half, and to be honest, I've never worked this hard physically in my life."
The Navarro College cheer coach then wrote about how she's "learned so much in such little time." Although, she acknowledged she's "still working on that technique."
And while she didn't reveal who she's been paired with, she did indicate the pro is "amazing and is tough as nails" on her. "Karma right???" she joked.
She then expressed her gratitude for the whole experience. "I'm thankful for the opportunity to have this journey," she concluded, "and I'm soaking in every bit of it."
Of course, her squad was already cheering her on.
"Omg!!! You are KILLING IT!" Jerry Harris wrote in the comments section. "Ugh I can't wait for Sep. 14th!"
Added Morgan Simianer, "Omg. I'm so happy for you!"
Aldama will be competing against Carole Baskin, Kaitlyn Bristowe, Vernon Davis, Anne Heche, Skai Jackson, Justina Machado, AJ McLean, Jeannie Mai, Jesse Metcalfe, Nelly, Nev Schulman, Charles Oakley, Chrishell Stause and Johnny Weir for a chance to win the mirrorball trophy.
Dancing With the Stars season 29 premieres Monday, Sept. 14 at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
