Music

I have said it before: Music makes working out 1000 times better. It's just a fact. But it's not its exercise. I blast music while I clean my house, and it makes it enjoyable. Driving? I'll drive forever if I have some good music. I listen to it when I'm happy, when I'm sad, if I'm feeling melancholy, you name it. That is why Zumba is so enjoyable, I think. No matter how intense a move, or dance, is, you do it. In fact, we do a "dance" to Macklemore's Can't Hold Us, that is just all arm moves. Halfway through I want to CRY. If I was doing it in my living room to an exercise video, I would not finish. However, doing it in Zumba, to music, I push through. We all do. We whine, and groan, but we do it.





Sadly, we only have a few more Zumba classes. We are going until the parade that we are in, and then Thursday classes will be cancelled. This is a serious bummer for me, since Thursday is the only day that I can go. Jess is hoping to be able to start back up again in the fall, but only if we can get more people to come to class. Right now, it is just Matthew and me. So, I'll have to find some Zumba friends over the summer ;)



I didn't notice until I plugged my phone into the computer, but apparently Lucas took some pictures, and even a video, during our last Zumba class! He used the "Kids Camera" on my phone, so it went into a separate folder. They aren't very clear, but I thought that it was funny!

Anyway, whatever I have been doing must be working a little, because my sister keeps going on and on about how "good" and "toned" I look. I don't really see it, but I'll take the compliment anyway! I even put my belly button ring back in. Not that anyone will see it, but I like having it back :)




Now, if you have been even considering Zumba, you should go!! Or just add music to your workout, if you don't already. You will push yourself even harder, I promise!
