Look we we country ladies are attempting to do three times a week:
Have you heard of Zumba? Have you tried Zumba? It is not for the faint of heart, that's for sure, and I am getting a bit of a reality check on this particular road to fitness. Unfortunately, I have this song about an old gray mare running through my head!
I remember leggins and had a couple pair for heaven's sake! Jane Fonda, Richard Simmons, "Flash Dance," "Saturday Night Fever," country line dancing.....
Now this is where I was going to put a video of Olivia Newton John singing "Physical" but after seeing the first few seconds of it, (for reasons completely unknown to me, I did not remember the hunky men and skimpy....uhm cloths they used to cover themselves), I'll just link to it, and you can take a peek for yourself! ;-)
Well Zumba takes all this and cranks it up a couple notches!
Think Salsa meets belly dancing meets hip-hop meets Fred and Ginger! You know, I don't ever remember seeing Fred and/or Ginger sweat! They must have been dancing gods! Or MGM had them dancing on iced floors in sub-zero rooms!
Our fearless leader, petite feisty Jennifer is awesome! She has us going so that maybe, just maybe our backs and arms will start a new scheme toward her sculptured muscles and our rears might move like hers on command instead of involuntarily rolling down the hall!!! (Think those lovely Hawaiian girls at a luau doing their dance!) Some girls have watches that count calories, and they are burning between 800-1000 in an hour! WOOO! (ok, I have a watch too, but I seem to be technically challenged and can't figure out the how to log my calories burned. I DID average about 5000 steps, so maybe someone can do that math for me?????)
Hmmmm..... Two posts in a row about a "Z" word. Hope I don't see zebras outside my window tomorrow! Maybe the Goodyear blimp or Led Zeppelin will stop by? I will keep you posted on my progress. Don't hold your breath for any live-action videos or pictures though. What happens in Zumba class, STAYS in Zumba class! Right girls?
