Join the Party!

Zumba! I've been to Zumba!
Zumba! it's great at Zumba!
Zumba! it's fun to Zumba!
Zumba! I like to Zumba!
(to the tune of Calle Ocho by Pitbull)

Zumba will make me as skinny and happy as those girls!!

Today 'I ditched the workout and joined the party'! Yep, I've just spent an hour wiggling my hips, shaking me booty and shimmying me boobs! Fab! And what's better it was at work with the mega bonus of being... completely FREE!! I've been wanting to do Zumba for ages but have been put off by various factors such as classes too late / clashes with running club / more money than I want to pay / have to be a gym member etc.etc... So it is with great relish that I am now looking forward to more opportunities to laugh at myself in the mirror as I set fire to those pesky calories!

Talking of calories, My first week of dieting is nearly done and all has gone well. I think I could have done more exercise... Okay, fine... I know I could have done more exercise but I've stuck to my calorie count each day and I reckon it just means that I'll be able to boost the weight loss next week when I add an increased exercise quota into the mix; everything has a silver lining! I'm holding off weighing myself until the end of next week as experience has taught me that my scales will register zero loss in the first week of the diet, but double the pounds in the second, so I'm not jumping on those babies until I'm sure they're going to kind to me! My next challenge is tomorrow as I'm joining a different type of party: a 'Booze Cruise', on the Bridgewater Canal... Classy, I know!... so I've got to make sure I don't blow everything then; I just need to make sure I don't drink too much, that's all... hmmmm...

Anyway, the 10 mile run tomorrow morning should give me some leeway... and if all goes to pot, I'll just run another 10 miles on Sunday - simples!


  1. Zumba sounds does the booze cruise. Enjoy!

  2. I am planning to make the most of my two free drinks tokens and bottle of wine on the table... in fact, I think I may have managed to arrange to sit on a table with a group of people who aren't drinking... don't know what happened there!!!!

  3. 10 miless after a booze cruise not sure thats a good idea, how about 20 miles before it or will that mean you nod off at the table?

  4. That will definitely mean big Zzzzzz's coming from me with my head on a table (and anyone who has been out drinking with me before will confirm that I don't need any extra help with that one!) :-)

  5. LOL - I love did you find a free class?
