Zumba, week 2

This was my second week back. It got a little easier, because I was slightly more familiar with the moves. I’m better with the cha cha cha routines than the mambo routines. You’d think all the nights I spent watching Dirty Dancing would make me better with mambo. Halfway through the hour, I lose all worry that I’m secretly being videotaped for YouTube.

I have to go again next week, because the week after I’ll miss it due to work travel.

Why am I doing this? I need to increase my stamina. My life of sedentary work and habits has killed any mojo I have. Regular workouts leave me tired early on. I have to accomplish getting through 3-4 minutes of moving without feeling like death before I can do something better. I have a lot of years of WDW ahead of me!

Zumba class, week 1

I signed up for a Zumba class through my township’s recreation program. I went to one class almost exactly five years ago (Something about September that makes me do silly things to stave off mortality, I guess) and PREDICTABLY* never went back.

This time I paid for eight weeks upfront, so I’m pitting my increasing laziness against my increasing cheapness to see what will win out. I think I did okay, but I have to realize that me THINKING I can do any type of aerobic dance is the same as Joey Tribbiani THINKING that he can speak French.

I sweat my ass off and felt as if I fused permanently with my workout clothes. Tomorrow I will likely feel like crap but today I feel okay!

*Other predictable things about me:

  • All of my diets fail
  • And if they don’t, I gain the weight back
  • I will always disappear from this blog and come back like nothing happened
  • I quit hard things
  • I have a Disney trip planned
