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?

    I enjoyed my first zumba class! I fell all over my feet. I am in a workout renewal phase- used to be really active- til I had another child as I reached 40. He is now 6. I gained 30 pounds in the last three years since my cancer diagnosis. Its time to get rid of it. Although I liked Zumba- I decided to start working out at 5:30 in the morning at the gym before anyone in my family was awake.
