Zumba


Thanks to my friend Megan Jorgensen for introducing me to the WONDERFUL world of Zumba!

Now, I will be honest here. I signed up for the class thinking I would be having a couple friends there to go with me. I am not in shape and didn't want to show up all alone and be the idiot there (not that my friends are idiots, but at least I can laugh with them when everyone is making fun of me). My friends ended up not being able to do the class. So I called the Rec center where I was going to take the class to see if they could refund the class since I didn't want to go alone. The lady I needed to talk to wasn't there and wouldn't be til the next day, after the first class I was supposed to be in. As I was getting ready to leave the message I thought to myself, how lame am I; that I can't go to the Rec Center and have a blast doing a fitness class and get in shape at the same time! I ended up not leaving the message and going out of my comfort zone to attend the class and........it was THE BEST THING I have done in a long time! I had so much fun and it was a great workout. In fact there is a Friday afternoon class I think I am going to go attend, because it was so awesome! I also checked out a DVD from the library! Thanks Megan!

I've heard it's a lot of fun and a good work out, but I too am nervous to go alone! In fact, I saw your post on facebook the other day and thought to myself, "I wish I had someone to go with!" I guess I should grab some of your confidence and go alone! :)

Sounds like fun! My workouts currently consist of walking too and from the mailbox every day... Zumba would be a little tricky trying to hold my preggo self in one piece while dancing around! (Can't you just imagine how silly I'd look?) Just think of me trying it and I bet you'll feel like WAY less of an idiot! :)
