Sunday night..laundry's done..


..and a new week will be here soon. 

Zumba kicked butt today and a young woman {new to class} came up to me afterwards and told me I was her inspiration ..can you imagine?

She much have thought.."well if that old lady can do it......."

When asked by the instructor, Kariné, if we had any requests, I said..

"Yeah the body of a 20 year old.."

She said no, but we could learn Zumba like a 20 year old.

Learning new routines and I swear, my body is doing all the same moves as she just can't see it as well, what with all the..
"insulation"...I have..

We do an hour of this with only enough time in between for a gulp of water..a total of 10 songs..

I really do like it, so if you want to be more active, limber, sweaty {ick} and fit, try one out.  And take it from me, it does get easier.

{ I just told her I was wanting to push myself harder..and she believed me! careful about what you say to a Zumba instructor!}

Wow! Don't know if I could last a whole hour in the beginning. But it does look fun!

So was this your class Colleen!? Didn't see you! I love the little girl in the back, couldn't believe how she kept up with the whole routine. I'm exhausted just watching!!

I haven't been by in a long time. You've been busy! The Zumba class looks like a lot of fun but how on earth do you keep that up for an hour?! Good night above. The little girl in the back row is adorable!

Looks like fun! Everyone that talks about Zumba seems to really enjoy it.


ain't for city gals said... must be in better shape than I am to keep that up! The instructor is amazing! I would defienitely be in the back line of the class for that...

Wish this really old lady [ME], had the guts to try something like that class.

Nope, on 2nd thought, I'd be trying to kick the bucket, to try something like that!

TO ALL MY FOLLOWERS: (concerning Jo's above comment)

Oh my goodness, no! I have not had any people injured (thank You Lord!) and I pray that the person this happened to is safe and in God's hands!
Jo, thank you for your concern and caring - you are a sweetie- hopefully whoever this has happened to will let us all know.

You go girl! Looks like a fun way to get fit. I would just love to walk in the evenings but weather and time not permitting at the moment. It is sooooo humid out there today. Ugh! Best wishes, Tammy

Thanks for sharing this Colleen! I miss zumba.......haven't done it now for over 3 weeks, going on 4 :(
The drive got to be too much to squeeze in during harvest when I'm busier at work but I'll get back. We have someone who just got certified last weekend that will teach locally, so I'm excited about that!
I miss the good feeling I got after zumba. Like I 'done good' and my whole attitude about everything was 100% better!
Have a good week!

No wonder you have lost so much weight! Wow what a work out, If I moved like that with my hips I'd break each hip socket. But I do tell everyone about you and your Zumba! How fun it looks, hugs Pearl
