I couldn’t wait for work to be over and for the evening to come. I was excited about joining Sally for my very first Zumba class. I had no idea what Zumba was other than a really fun exercise class.
We arrived at House of Dance in Ventura just after 5:30 p.m. for the 6:00 p.m. class as I did not have a reservation. We weren’t sure how many people would be there since (1) the class is really popular and (2) everyone seems to have a New Year’s resolution to lose weight. I was delighted to find there were only about 20 of us in the class this evening. I had a blast even though I couldn’t keep up with all the dance steps. I felt really good afterwards and when I checked my pedometer, I was over my 10,000 steps for the day. Woohoo! Of course afterwards, I signed up for 6 weeks with Sally. I am looking forward to getting out of the house at least 1 night a week for group exercise. This is going to be fun. Finding a babysitter in about three weeks will be the challenge as Dave will be going out of town. I’m sure it will all work out!
