I finally got to do a Zumba class today and see what all the hype was about. I didn't sleep too well last night and woke up late - my eyes popped open at 10:30 and class started at 11:00 - and for a minute I considered rolling over and going back to sleep since I didn't think I'd ever make it on time, but I didn't do that. I hopped out of bed, drank a quick cup of coffee while I threw on my gym clothes and sneakers, brushed my teeth, tossed my hair into a ponytail, and was out the door by 10:48.
I was a little confused by some of the steps (wait - am I supposed to be stepping this way or that way? My hips are supposed to do huh?) but it was WAY fun and the instructor was fantastic and she really seemed to be enjoying herself.
I was a sweaty mess when class was over and my face was bright red (see below) but it was a blast and I'm already looking forward to doing it again next Sunday!
