New year Zumba!

January 6, 2009 at 12:16 am 9 comments

The holidays have been good to me. Cakes and chocolates galore, all quickly disappearing in my mouth. And come new year, when I stood on my weighing scale, it groaned and sputtered out a number I cannot live with. K was waiting for this opportunity to push me into exercising. Now, while K enthusiastically runs through the streets of our neighborhood every morning and even waves at a neighbor or two, I cannot fathom exercising for the sake of exercising. I mean, I cannot aimlessly run on a treadmill or do an eleptical. I need to get exercise as a part of some activity, like a game of tennis. So, yeah, coming back to exercising, I refused. And then, as if all this was pre schemed, my friend mentioned that she is going to zumba classes – a rigourous 90 minute latin dance class that gives an awesome cardio workout. Now that I had no reason to refuse, and there being the issue of that weighing scale, I agreed to go.

When K heard this, he got really enthusiastic. He took me to get new gym shoes and some workout clothes. Even when my car had a flat tire and cast doubts over if I could attend my first class, K valiantly swooped in and offered to drive me to my classes. And on the morning of my first class..

K: Do the shoes fit you?

Me: Hmmm

K: No run a little and see….

Me: * running from one end of living room to other* Yeah they fit

K: Are your socks Ok?

Me: Hmmm

K: Did u take your gym towel?

Me: Hmmm

K: Dont stress out too much on the first day itself, ok?

Me: *thinking this is really cute* Big Smile…Hmmm

We pick up all my stuff and we are about to lock the main door

K: Did u pee?

Me: hm…..WHAT??

So yes, K thinks I am a little kid attending first day of kindergarden. Ofcourse, reminding him that I have gone to gym before was met with total disbelief, and then I had to remind him that I DID have a life before I met him.

All said and done, the Zumba classes were awesome, I did not even notice how 90 minutes went by! I jumped and hopped and shook my booty, and with my dancing skills, I am wonderstuck at how the instructor tolerated me. I think I got a good workout, or atleast the pain in my butt says so.

On that note, I wish everyone a very happy, healthy and wholesome new year!

    happy 2009 to u also.
    telling u—-run a marathon

    Clueless: I can’t! Running is not my thing. Swimming is….but to get into a swimsuit and not scare little children present there, I need to tone up a little… All a vicious circle šŸ˜¦

    God, I can’t dance to save my life. If embarassment burned calories – then yeah, I could try dancing and the calories would melt right off ! šŸ™‚

    Good luck with the dance,

    Clueless: I can’t dance either…but I am quite shameless!

    Total LOL @ “did you pee?”

    still LOL!

    How is the Zumba going? Is it possible for people who have about a dozen left feet(that keep tumbling all over each other) to learn it? šŸ™‚

    Clueless: Well, thankfully everyone is equally bad and we just keep staring at the instructor to keep pace. Hardly any time to look at ourselves or others. Do the answer is, I still don’t know!
