Its no secret that I don't love working out and I've always had a hard time sticking with it, unless training for some sort of event.  However, working out has taken on a whole new meaning since becoming a mom...alone time and doing something for myself!  Since we joined the Y a few weeks ago I've been trying out some of their classes.  Last night it was Zumba.

Have you ever tried Zumba?  I would describe it as an aerobics class disguised as a dance class.  Or maybe its the other way around.  Either way, its so fun!  I actually had to keep myself from smiling a big cheesy grin the entire time because I wasn't sure if that was appropriate.  Sometimes I slipped when the teacher would shout out things like "wa-hoo" in the middle of the song.  And how could I not smile at the 40-something lady that tied on her jingle bell sarong just before class started?  She jingled the whole time like she was a belly dancer!  It was great!  A little silly, but great.

So, every Tuesday I plan to be at Zumba, where I can travel back in time to my teen years and feel like I'm dancing around my bedroom.  Yeah, you know what I'm talking about.

  1. I am still in the need to try this. I have heard so many great things and the other night I watched a short clip from a class at Lifetime. I have to get there soon. Glad you enjoyed it.
