So I've been going to the Y several times a week now, mostly to swim, do weights, or yoga. I'm loving the variety of exercise I'm getting with the Y membership. Having all drop-in classes rocks! I've been giving everything a try.

Last night I tried out Zumba. The instructor was fantastic, smiling the whole time, and obviously having fun. I was hopelessly uncoordinated and not enjoying it as much as I thought I would. Some of the moves were a bit hard on my ankles. Good workout though. I got a good sweat up. I don't think it's quite my cup of tea. I may try the belly dance class out next.

After Zumba I went to do my regular lap swim, and as I finished I had the worst calf cramp I've had in years (it still hurts a bit today.) I think the zumba and the swimming left me a little dehydrated and caused the cramping.

I walked home after, and my Spark fitness thingie said I did almost 1200 calories in exercise. I find that hard to believe. I bet it's closer to 800.

I stopped by Target after work and picked up a couple tank tops and another pair of capris for yoga. I had a nice leisurely half hour walk home, and that will be it for today. I figured I should probably take it easy after last night's extra long workout.

Looking forward to my next yoga class. :)

    Wow, you are so really active. Congratulations.
    I've done nothing all month except for walking and a couple of yoga classes.
    Keep up the good work.
