Took my first Zumba class today...
Saturday, January 30, 2010
Well there was a Health and Fitness expo at the high school today. I went last year and had my bone density taken, which the results were not the best. So I have been eating more calcium and taking supplements and today I had the test retaken. The results were NORMAL! So that was good news to me since the meds that I am on for Breast Cancer deplets your body of calcium!
I also found out they were doing a ZUMBA dance class from 11:00 to 12:30, so I rushed back home to change into workout clothes and headed back. I was suprised at the number of ladies there of all different ages!(ever go to exercise class and no one there is in your age group?) I stood in the back of the class since it was my first time, and I'm glad I did because Zumba ain't easy! (to follow). But I did my best and figured as long as I was moving, I was burning calories! It is a lot of hip action, and boy did my hips feel it later!
All in all, it was great fun!
Anyone out there ever do ZUMBA?
