There's something about...Zumba

Zumba is a hit worldwide!
And right here in my little city in Texas is no exception.
Men, women, old, and young alike are drawn.
Started in 2001 by a Miami dancer, it's exhilarating, provacative,and best of all: effective.

I did a class this morning.
Sweating profusely, wishing I had my sister Tara's ability to shake what the good Lord gave her, my mind was racing.

For one, the two middle aged women in front of me are all made up!
Now, here in Texas it's not uncommon for a lady to get showered, hair coiffed, and make-up done before they head to the gym-not kidding.
These two have gone as far as jewelery. I look down to check for heels. No.
Hey-that's not a bad idea, though. I mean how much better do you feel and look in heels?
Imagine what that would do for your legs?!
Getting "low, low, low, low" My Lord, this is provacative!
My mom & her sisters do this?!
I have got to see that when I'm there in Oct.
I think I missed a few steps picturing them.
I'm praying "Dear God, don't let any one I know be in the cardio room beyond that glass wall behind us."I realize I've been copying the moves of the young moms in the front row that have for just this one hour been transported back to nightlife and hot dates from diapers and playdates.

Yeah, well I don't have a club-hopping past to draw from. Truth be told, my moves are a combination of what I've learned from aerobics classes like this & watching New Kids...oh and my sister, Tara!

Here's a pretty good introduction to Zumba, if you have yet to give it a try.

  1. You are histarical thinking of the pastoral staff of your church being there!!! LOL
    What would be worse is if someone got video on their phone and put it on the overhead Sun. morning. LOL You probably looked great!!

  2. I saw your mom once at Zumba when I was leaving Body Flex! Looks like a BLAST! People here get pretty dolled up here too!

  3. I've been DYING to take that make me want to take it even more!

  4. I'm so glad you tried it. I absolutely love it and burn over 900 calories in a 55 minute class. Really works your core. You'll have to come to our gym for a class in October for sure.
