Yeah Baby Work it Out

January 25, 2011

Wow what a day today was. It started off right and end the same. I woke up this morning a bit tired because my weekend is the time I can ditch thinking about school and relax a bit. Which is a lie because I am forever thinking about school and practicing listening, hearing, speaking, and writing. It became a habit for me. This morning I got ready and went to my doctor appointment. One of the receptionist was looking great. I notice it right away that she look way slimmer than the last time we seen her. She was not fat at all just built solid. Today you can see more body structure. She mention that she lost 36lbs since the middle of last month to now not doing anything but eating more fruits and vegetables. That was the only thing she changed. We mention to her our success as well of doing the same thing. We discuss how portion control, a little bit more fruit and vegetable can make a big difference.

After the doctor we came back home. I was a bit bored so I clean up the house a bit and finally went off to school early which is a big no no when I have cash in my pocket. I walked to the second hand store to see if they have anything of interest and they had cooking books. I love cooking books that has a picture on each page of what the end result is suppose to look like. It is like a guide for me to know if it done right or wrong. I was so proud when I left the store that I bought 4 cook books which are in excellent condition less than 10 Euro. Then since I still had some time on my hand I stopped at the Euro and more store to see what they have in new. They have a giant sign on the window last chance everything must go store is closing. I have not seen any proof of that. Everything is still the same price and they get shipment every few days. But my curious self still went in to take a look and found what I thought was a spetzle maker and later was told by John it is a potato squeezer to make mash potato. I was like great I don’t care I still plan to use it to make my own fresh spetzel as he laughed at me.

So okay let me fast forward. When John came home I had our dinner ready, just a small bowl. I know it is bad to go to the gym on a full stomach, lol, so painful believe me I tried it more than once and finally learned, lol. So I was so sike because today is the first class of Zumba. I love Zumba! I joined Zumba in the state and went 6 days a week for 3 months sometime twice a day and lost about 60lbs. Of course I was doing the same as I am doing now by just watching my portions, eating right, and getting in my work out. I was a porker and still am now. The bad thing was that I did not see it. I saw a sexy chick in the mirror and that was good enough for me. My husband did not notice it much either because he did not say anything plus we was getting big together…we still coordinate, lol. So finding Zumba class close by is a God sent for me. I tried one in another city a good 20-25 minutes away but the instructor sucks big time. She was playing slow music and during the cool down she was still telling us to jump around! At the end of that class a man asked me what I thought of the class and I was brutally honest and let him know I have no plan to come back thank goodness it was a free try out not knowing this was her husband, lol. So when she came over and ask me I told her what I thought and how she could improve it for her to tell me that Zumba is new to Germany so she wanted to start off slow. I told her that she should teach it right and not shock people later. So this class tonight I was so looking forward to try it out and hoping my dance teacher have some fast buddy shaking music. Unfortunately I could not find out because the class was not located in our fitness building. It was somewhere down the road. So instead John and I work out for one hour lifting weights and jogging on the cross trainer. It actually felt good to work out together again and plan to do the same again tomorrow. Feel the burn, lol.

Encase your wondering what is Zumba. Zumba is a fast pace dance fitness for all age to keep you moving, working it out meanwhile your having fun. Almost like your in a club. No one care how you dance because there is not a wrong or right way as long as you are having fun!

The video above was more of my pace. Now I am sure I am back to beginner.

    I never heard of Zumba before, but then I haven’t been to a gym for years. I had to give up my membership, cutting costs. Sounds fun, though.

      They have tons of great instructors in Oregon. I travel all around driving, train, and buses for the places that hardly did not have a parking lot. I told you that you would win :). Child I don’t listen to that word “extreme” budgeting. Extreme anything does not fly with me. Plus he says extreme than eventually soften up, lol, gots to love him for that.

    My friend is obsessed with zumba dancing, and she wants me to join a class. I keep going back and forth. I really might have to give it a try, though.

      You should at least once to see what is the hype all about. It is really good with a good instructor and high tempo music. Everyone just having a good time working out and the people are very social.
