I’ve been trying to mix it up this week, especially after last weeks dismal performance of an entire 400 grams lost!
My friend Jessie is a certified Zumba instructor and she had held her first demonstration class on Tuesday night, so I did a cardio boot camp on Tuesday morning (so that ticks off the high intensity), I weight trained after work, then headed home for some food before heading out the door again to Zumba.
The class was packed! Thankfully there were quite a few faces I knew, mostly “competition” girls who had shown up to support Jessie, so I had some co-ordinated friends to watch and copy. All the hype said its just like a party, but I didn’t think so .. it is however quite fun, and I can see it becoming even more enjoyable once you get the moves down. It is however nothing really new .. quite a few of the moves are really old school aerobics moves with a few funky arms thrown in, but it gets the heart rate up and the music is good, so its an enjoyable extra cardio session.
I thought I would get in some practice, so I went along to a Zumba class at my gym on Thursday night. I conned Lavinia into coming (who would have rather have done the hard core boxing class) and I enjoyed the second class more, because I had more of an idea of the moves. I also had Krystal next to me (you know the amazing dancer from the series Dancing with the Stars), so I had feet to follow, although I still cant co-ordinate my arms and feet .. definitely something to work on!
So .. one more sleep till the big *weigh in* .. AF arrived so hopefully my results are too askew, I think im looking leaner, but only the calipers know for sure!
Till tomorrow *shakes in fear* xox
