Calling ALL dancers...


So I HATE working out in any form. In fact I haven't done any kind of workout since high school (meaning that was cheerleading and gymnastics) until... ZUMBA! I absolutely LOVE it! I love to dance and just have fun and that's what zumba is all about. The young womens president in my ward introduced it to me and kept telling me about it and since I'm nursing and can't diet, I really wanted to start some kind of exercising to loose this baby weight. I went kindof not expecting anything and now I'm totally converted. I'm totally sore and exhausted, but it is so fun and I think I'll actually stick with it. If you have it taught anywhere near where you live, you have to give it a try. It's taught differently by different instructors, so it might be totally different from what I do, but I think it's similar in the sense of you are dancing for an hour straight. Also supposedly you burn 750 calories everytime you do it.

Also ever since I've been a mom, I felt like I didn't have a "thing." Geoffery always had golf and I was always so jealous of him that he enjoyed something. Well now zumba is my "thing" that I can enjoy and go to each week where no one knows me as a "mom." Anyway, you have to try it if you like dancing and your looking for a "thing."

I have to try this!! Is there a DVD?

Hey Janalyn! There is a DVD online that my mother in law ordered. I'm not sure where she ordered it from, I think she just googled it. But its pretty expensive so she's getting it for Christmas. Like $60 or something. But I pay $25 a month for classes, so after two months of doing the video you pay for it. Hope that helps!

We just joined a new gym this week and so I tried a few of their Zumba classes all because of you!. They are hilarious! I am NOT good at it! But it is fun and such a good workout!
