Even as I am sitting here writing this I can feel the muscles in my abs, back, and legs yelling at me for my behavior yesterday, I am SO happy that I did it.
I've done Zumba before, in fact, I do an hour of Zumba every week, but never, in my life, have I done 2 straight hours of heart pounding, adrenaline pumping zumba!
Let me take you through this journey.
8:00 woke up, grabbed a silk chocolate soy milk (8oz) and a fiber one oats and chocolate bar. (290 calories all together)
Got dressed, in my only bit of pink work out gear (since it IS the Party in Pink, after all)
9:00 Got to the event, bought about $25 worth of raffles (all of the proceeds from the event go to the Susan G Coleman foundation) and chose my place on the floor (BOY was it filling up! This was 30 min before it was even supposed to start!)
I also bought a belly skirt (you know, the ones with the coins that make a nice jingly sound when you dance!) Sorry the angle is terrible, I was taking a picture of it on me :P
There were over 150 people dancing! I stopped to grab water and took a picture of just the front few rows!
We Zumba'd for a solid hour before We took a break. Here I am an hour in.
Now, normally that would be the point that I am going home, and my body knew this--it said "what, w-what!? Why are you going BACK onto the floor? We are done now... like, really done!" And I had to tell it to STFU and get back to work, because we had another hour to crank out.
Oh! During the intermission the Zumbatomic kids performed for us, it was adorable!
They also announced door prize and raffle winners. Look what I won!
No joke, that is my favorite restaurant. Like I've mentioned before, I will enjoy me a good "mexican-food-a-palooza" How did they KNOW?!
Then we went back on the floor, danced for another hour (belly danced, salsa, samba, circle danced, and generally shook our groove thangs)
When we were done I was worn out, tired, hungry, and sore, but most of all--I was happy--I did it!
Here is my "omgIjustdid2hoursofZumba" face from when I got back in my car :D
Enjoy your weekends! :D
