TX, United States
I am a 39 yr. old stay at home mom to 3 girls ages 10, 9 and 7. My goal is to be fit by 40! I want to lead a healthier lifestyle. I was banded on 4/5/2011. I tend to be a bit on the sarcastic and cynical side. I love to read, hate to excersise (but am learning to tolerate it!), love to shop and want to smack anyone who is a size 2 (not really!). I am learning to work with my band and my new self one day at a time!

Zumba Is Not For Everyone

Last night I went to my very first Zumba class with one of my besties.  I have been looking forward to this for months.  I know some of you adore it and I couldn't wait to try it out and see what all the fuss was about.  And while I had a lot of fun (mainly laughing at my white girl dance style), I have to admit...........I am not a fan.

I am shocked.  I love to dance.  But when I work out, I need to feel the burn.  I need to push myself really hard.  I want that sweet runners high.  I want to work out some aggression by kick boxing or running to loud angry music.  That is just my workout style.

What did I love about the class?  I loved the fact that I went the whole way through and never once thought about giving up.  I wasn't winded to the point of gasping for air.  I wasn't the biggest one in class.  I am strong and can hold my own.  I am in really good shape physically (thank you band!).

Would I do it again with friends?  Absolutely.  It was fun.  Would I do it for my workout routine on a daily basis?  No, it isn't something I would stick with.

Anyway, on the way home I stopped at the Wally World to check out training videos (I feel the need to incorporate some into my walking/running routine).  And I found this................

Have I ever mentioned my little crush on Dolvett?  No? Well, I think he is absolutely gorgeous.  We watch TBL just so I can see his beautiful face (and hot body!).  I would be in the gym EVERY hour of EVERY day if I had a trainer that looked like him.  My girls laugh at me and say I am a desperate housewife.  Perhaps that is true.  But, if watching him workout will help me stay focused then bring on the "At-Home Challenge". 

Happy Wednesday everyone!!!!


  1. I think he's good looking, too! And Zumba isn't my cup of tea workout choice, either. I'm with you!

  2. I am a self admitted Zumba snob but I hated so much about it the first time I did it. You have inspired me to write an Intro to Zumba post. Not that I am trying to change your mind or anything - just things I wish I had known from the beginning.

  3. You know that I LOVE me some Zumba but it's not everyone's cup of tea. It's good that you realize that and are finding other things that are more to your liking...and your crush on Dolvett...totally understandable...he's gorgeous!!

  4. I'm just afraid that I'll die during the class. I feel that way about water aerobics. I did the class and stayed after to just tread water so that I knew I was getting a consistent workout done.

  5. I didn't care for Zumba either the one time I went! I am like you, I'd prefer a super sweaty intense workout, it just didn't cut it for me...

  6. I think that's why it's so important to find a workout that you really like to do so you'll stick with it. Everyone is different. I haven't been to a Zumba class, but I have done the Wii Zumba.
