It has been a busy busy week!! I am so glad it is finally Friday!! Well along with church, bible studies, blogging, tweeting, Facebook, family and work I have decided to add something else to my schedule. When I had lunch with my sister last week she said we need to do Zumba! I was excited. I had heard of Zumba but that is about it. I didn't even realize that we had a class very close. So that is what we did. Let's see it was me, my sisters, Helen and Emily, my daughter and her sister in law and her friend. We were all first timers. I just want y'all to know that I was making bets on how long I would last. I gave myself 10 minutes. lol

Here are a couple of shots before class:

Quite a big room and by the time we got started it was packed!!

My daughter and my younger sister, Helen.

Those are the pros there! lol

This was us after class. Notice the coin skirts they gave us to wear? I tell you what you really want to shake those hips so you can hear them jingle!!

At any rate, we had a BLAST!!! I LOVED IT!! I am definitely going back. I do admit though that I was working up quite a sweat when the instructor yelled "Ok warm-up's over!"
LOL I screamed "Warm Up!!" I knew then I wouldn't last the whole class. But I did!!!! I had to run to the bathroom and take about a 5 minute break but then I got right back out there! I think I did real good with keeping up too.

I just knew that I was going to be so sore! By the time the class was over my hips were killing me! But I was excited and couldn't wait for the next class! By the time I got in bed that night I slept like a baby - but dreading how I would feel in the morning. To my surprise when I woke up I felt great! My stomach muscles were sore but that was it. I couldn't get over that that was all that was sore.

Let me just tell you also that during the class we smiled and were laughing! To me it was really intense but you have to realize that I have stopped walking and doing any form of exercise since before Christmas. I have never had such a fun workout that felt like a work out!! Does that make sense? lol

Just in case you want to see what Zumba is - here you go!

If you are looking for a great work out you really need to try it! I know you are going to have a blast. Oh the best part was that before class began we seen a couple of girls my daughter went to school with. Afterwards I seen my neighbor come running towards me. It was fun to see that she was there. I had no idea she was taking Zumba class.

I've heard people talk about Zumba. That looks like so much fun! I would love to be able to loosen up enough and get my hips to move that much without looking like a spazz!
