Workout Wednesday

Happy hump day! This week is flying for me and I feel like I am on roller skates, so that means what better of a time to sit down and take some me time?!

I have twenty minutes until I have to pick my kids up from music and of course I have a million things I could be doing (none are obviously TOO urgent). Teaching is the type of job where the work is never really done. Which, has been hard for me to handle because I love completing everything on a to do list. Now, to remedy that, I just don't put EVERYTHING I would like to get done on my lists...

Anyway, moving on, before I get too off topic.

Workout Wednesday. I am totally ripping off Lisa's idea for a post today (sorry, Lisa!) and blogging my workouts from the previous week. When I blogged my workouts before the wedding I definitely felt like I had more accountability since others are going to read about it. So, here I go again!

Monday - Zumba
Tuesday - Zumba
Wednesday - rest
Thursday - Zumba
Friday - Zumba happy hour
Saturday - Zumba
Sunday - Zumba

Our group that was at the Friday night happy hour class. Such a fun mix of people!

Umm.. ya think I have a Zumba problem?! I have also been twice so far this week. This morning I made it to a Body Pump class, so I am trying to mix it up. However, why not keep doing what I love? I burn between 550-700 calories in a 60-75 minute class and the time flies for me.

 My burn from the Friday night happy hour class. These special events are my favorite!

Also, I should mention, I have never been a dancer. Ever.

There is definitely no need to have dance skills in your past to enjoy Zumba. Of course you need some coordination, but it really is not that difficult! I urge anyone that is even remotely interested in Zumba to check it out for a few classes. I say a few classes, because the first class is of course going to be the most frustrating. Nobody can come in and immediately know an instructor's choreography. It takes a little time.

If you could only choose one exercise activity for the rest of your life (not including day to day activities) what would you choose? I think my answer is obvious ... ;) 

Note: I started this post at 10:55 and it is now 11:10. I spent 15 minutes on this and I refuse to feel guilty. Teachers do so much work on their own time. Also, I miss blogging. I need to figure out a way to squeeze it back into my daily routine. Also! I have not proofed my writing. Do not judge my typos ...

I love your note at the bottom! I would never think to judge a person who blogs during the workday, mostly because I have been known to do it myself...

I have never gone to a Zumba class before. I tried Zumba for the Wii and didn't love it. I think my favorite thing to do would be kickboxing combined with Tabata. Those two workouts make me feel so bad ass!

I would love for zumba to come back to our gym but its gone forever! :(

Lisa from Lisa's Yarns said...

Dang, nice work on fitting in all of those zumba classes! I actually think that is more impressive that fitting runs in because with zumba you have to get to the gym and go to a certain time, etc. So it takes more time when it's all said and done. I have only taken one zumba class and I was not crazy about it. I would try it again, though. I feel like the gyms around here don't offer many classes, so maybe it's just not as popular here or they have less instructors?

If I could only do one exercise for the rest of my life I would definitely pick running!

A. I really really really want to do Zumba.
B. I agree with your note. I want to get back into blogging.

I feel ya! Blog reading/writing has taken the burner since school started again because of the need to do ALLTHETHINGS.

Zumba queen! that's alot of zumba! lol

I sometimes wish I blogged more, but when I don't feel like it, I don't force it! therefore, my blog lacks a real schedule. oh well! That's why it's my hobby and not my job ;)

Amber said...

I have never tried zumba! I already do so many activities I don't know if I would be able to fit it in, but I should try it one day.

I LOVE exercising and moving my body so it would honestly be SO hard for me to pick just one workout to do the rest of my life. It would definitely be a close tie between running and yoga if I absolutely HAD to choose...
