It really sucks when your only means of stress relief becomes stressful in and of itself.

Not knowing what is happening with Wednesday Zumba from week to week is messing with my diet planning, my Tuesday and Thursday workout schedule, my laundry, my family obligations and now even my overtime at work. I've been asked to work late tonight and don't know whether I should say yes or no. I have no idea how many carbs I should be eating today which is making me extremely grouchy! Get your freaking act together Coastal Fitness! Have I mentioned lately that I hate hate hate my gym?

There is only one good class each week. The instructor has been beyond flaky for the last six months and hasn't shown up for the last five weeks. The sub is OK, but she is really a Zumba Gold teacher and it's just not fun for me to dance so slowly with someone who does not have a Latin dance background. Not to mention that she has been using essentially the same playlist for years. If I have to listen to those awful Christina Aguilera songs one more time I may scream!

This instructor (the regular one) is a personal friend and I care about him a lot, but honestly he should be fired because he is doing a terrible job.

Living in a small town and having no choices really isn't working for me.

    No, I don't have any privacy/space or the correct flooring to be able to do Zumba at home. I can't make any noise or play any music out loud in my current living situation.

I was so frustrated yesterday that I decided not the go to the gym at all and to take a rest day...which is something I haven't done in at least a month. I NEVER rest or skip working out. Anyhow, I accepted the overtime and just after that my friend texted me and let me know that he would be teaching.

So I went, had to show up a little late...but had a blast. Dancing with someone who actually knows how to move, who isn't just copying something from a canned video routine...well, it is an enormous difference!

Now if he could just stop being a flake. :)

    Hi, ummm have you tried doing Zumba on an X Box kinect ? I haven't joined a gym. I invested in the X Box. The one I do is called Zumba Fitness Rush. It is so much fun! If you ever have a chance to do it, please try it! You can Zumba as long as your heart desires. I hope I kind of helped you with an alternative. emoticon
