HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRESIDENT OBAMA!!!
Stay young and healthy... drink smoothies! :-)
Have you ever danced Zumba? Today, I did! Zumba is a form of Latin dancing that makes exercise fun. Today I decided to attend the Zumba class at my gym. It was a 45 minute workout that really kicked my a**! I was so sweaty and thirsty after the workout.
Zumba was so fun, I just wish I had a friend to go with. I admit I was a bit nervous to start dancing in front of strangers, but I eventually got over it. For those of you who know me know that I only dance when I'm tipsy or drunk, so it took a whole lot of courage for me to dance in front of 20 girls. I'm finally conquering my fears, better late than never I suppose. Zumba is definitely not easy! As much as I love Latin dancing and believe that I should have been born Latin, I was totally thrown off by Zumba. You need a lot of skill, spunk, and attitude to dance Zumba, so I still have a way to go. I won't give up though and plan on taking the same class again next week.
I came home and gulped 3 glasses of water. Half an hour later I made myself a Blueberry Smoothie for lunch, and it was just what my body needed after a good workout... a delicious and healthy smoothie loaded with antioxidants. I couldn't have felt better about myself. :-) And then back to work!
