Last night my husband had class and the baby was in bed by 7:30, which meant I actually had some time to myself. Instead of sitting on the couch staring at the television, I decided to get some physical activity in.
Now, I have always been into fitness, I danced when I was younger, and I have some workout videosI would do here and there. About 4 years ago I got into running, which I love, but my schedule these days doesn't always provide me the time to squeeze in a run. I've been looking for a quick workout that doesn't require any equipment or gear, just something I can pop in the DVD and go to town. I requested the Zumba Fitness DVD from my mom for Christmas. I've heard a lot about the workout and thought it sounded just like what I have been searching for to help me stay active.
I've watched some of the DVDs and tried out a few of the moves, but last night was the first night I actually got into it and completed the entire workout. Let me just say I thought that I had at least had some rhythm, but I was way wrong. The way the instructors move is just CRAZINESS sometimes, and I found it hard to keep up with the steps. However, it did have me sweating and that's the whole point isn't it? I think I'm going to get into it, and hopefully I'll get better as I do it more and more. I have another session planned for tonight because it's the hubby's turn to put baby to bed! A night off!
