Me and Zumba


This week on my healthy lifestyle journey has been better. I bought Zumba for the Wii. Need I say more? Well just for kicks I will.

 The goal is to make it through a 20 minute session, each session is broken down into 4 and 5 minute parts. Chelle (Hound’s fiancée) and I have made it through several 4 minute sessions but no further. We are having great fun while doing it and laughing so hard we feel like we’ve done 100 sit ups, but 4 minutes is it!

 In this process I am learning a variety of new dances all of which I can’t pronouce but seem to be of the Latin variation. I’m moving so fast I look like an idiot. I know this because Chelle looks like an idiot so I must. When we are done with the shortest workout on earth we both collapse on the couch, chair or floor, whichever is closer at the time and suck in every ounce of air in the room until we can breathe again.

 Our goal is to work up to 6 minutes by the end of the week. It sounds pitiful I know,diet coke rocks but Zumba is the hardest form of exercise I’ve ever tried to do. We will not give up though because it so much fun and we know there are so many benefits from this 4 minute workout.
