Non-Scale Victories: Zumba!

Posted on: February 7, 2013

My first post of the week (finally!) and it’s going to be a good one because I am linking up with the lovely KJT & Lex for Non-Scale Victories.

This week I had a pretty huge non-scale victory in my opinion.  I tried out an actual Zumba class!  This was my first workout in quite some time and it has only made me want to workout more!  It was free tonight just to see what kind of interest there would be in the class and the location it’s being offered in.  If you follow me on Twitter you may have seen that it’s taking place at a bar (which has a ballroom).  Thanks to the large interest that was shown in the class there will be more!

My mom heard about it through a coworker who takes the instructors Zumba class already (not sure where though).  I actually saw it on Facebook and didn’t think much of it until my mom asked if I wanted to try it.  We tried it together and because I was talking about it on Twitter (my personal account) a friend of mine joined in as well.

It was fun and even though I couldn’t do all of the moves or keep a rhythm going I still worked up a sweat and am already feeling some soreness (yay!).

As I mentioned there was a large interest shown by the number of people who showed up tonight, and more were interested in coming but weren’t able to tonight.  So, beginning on the 21st Zumba is being offered at Homestead from 6:30-7:30 for $25 for 7 weeks, or $5 per class as you go.

My mom decided to pay the $25 for the 7 classes.  I decided I would pay the $5 when I decided I wanted to go.  With working 30 miles from home, and this bar being in my neck of the woods, being able to make a 6:30 start time when I don’t get done with work until 6 is pushing it close, especially with how the weather has been making road conditions less than ideal.  I would also miss a class due to my vacation to Maryland to see Chelsea.

The fact that it’s hosted close to home is a definite plus.  I am definitely not saying I won’t go again but I didn’t want to commit to 7 weeks when that may not always be possible.

I am in a great mood thanks to my workout tonight and am really considering getting up and going to the Y tomorrow morning before work!  Evidently all I needed to do was workout once to make me want to workout again!

Talk to me…

What was one of your non-scale victories for the week?

I’m so uncoordinated that I think I’d make a fool out of myself at Zumba, but it looks fun! Good for you for giving it a try!

If anyone cared to watch me last night I made a fool of myself too. But that’s what’s awesome, it isn’t about doing it right. It’s about moving your body to raise your heart rate and break a sweat. I think if you’re given an opportunity to try it you should!

I AM SO HAPPY YOU LIKED ZUMBA!!!!!!!!

🙂 It was definitely fun! Our instructor used songs that are popular now along with some of the regular Latin style stuff so I knew some of the music which was cool.

The first time I tried Zumba I felt really stupid! I shortly realized though that everyone else in the class looks just as stupid, and noone has time to watch anyone else because you are watching the instructor the whole time!! I do it every Friday now!! I’m glad you liked it!!

I nominated you for a Liebster!! Stop by http://www.isemingerchronicles.blogspot.com to get your questions
