Let me preface this by saying I am not a dancer. Not even close to a dancer!
But I have several friends who have invited me to go to The Warehouse with them for Zumba night. It is literally a warehouse that gets all nice and dark with black lights, has a big stage up front, and everyone goes to shake their stuff...
I have to say, I quite enjoyed myself! I was DRENCHED when I was done. (Not even joking!) (I was going to run to the store after to pick up a few things and couldn't because my clothes were wet, my hair was wet...and I STUNK!) (All great signs of an awesome workout!)
I'm not going to lie, at first I was a bit self conscious. I mean, hello! Sure I've done a booty shake a few times in the privacy of my own home....but never where people could watch my awkwardness! Finally, I just told myself I look as amazing as the instructors up on stage. Ha!
I'm pretty sure this picture is a more adequate view of what was happening last night...
So although I have a lot of work to get my moves looking hot...at least I know I got a killer workout (and I'm terribly sore this morning!). I actually checked my Nike+ Fuel Band before I started...I wanted an idea of how many calories I burned in the hour Zumba class....a whopping 630! NICCCCEEE! :)
And my scale thanked me this morning! :)
