Have You Zumba-ed Yet!?!?!?!?!

Look we we country ladies are attempting to do three times a week:

Have you heard of Zumba?  Have you tried Zumba?  It is not for the faint of heart, that's for sure, and I am getting a bit of a reality check on this particular road to fitness.  Unfortunately, I have this song about an old gray mare running through my head!

I remember leggins and had a couple pair for heaven's sake!   Jane Fonda, Richard Simmons, "Flash Dance," "Saturday Night Fever," country line dancing.....

Now this is where I was going to put a video of Olivia Newton John singing "Physical"  but after seeing the first few seconds of it,  (for reasons completely unknown to me, I did not remember the hunky men and skimpy....uhm cloths they used to cover themselves), I'll just link to it, and you can take a peek for yourself!  ;-)

Well Zumba takes all this and cranks it up a couple notches!


Think Salsa meets belly dancing meets hip-hop meets Fred and Ginger!  You know, I don't ever remember seeing Fred and/or Ginger sweat!  They must have been dancing gods!  Or MGM had them dancing on iced floors in sub-zero rooms!

Our fearless leader, petite feisty Jennifer is awesome!  She has us going so that maybe, just maybe our backs and arms will start a new scheme toward her sculptured muscles and our rears might move like hers on command instead of involuntarily rolling down the hall!!!  (Think those lovely Hawaiian girls at a luau doing their dance!) Some girls have watches that count calories, and they are burning between 800-1000 in an hour!  WOOO!  (ok, I have a watch too, but I seem to be technically challenged and can't figure out the how to log my calories burned.  I DID average about 5000 steps, so maybe someone can do that math for me?????)

Hmmmm.....  Two posts in a row about a "Z" word.  Hope I don't see zebras outside my window tomorrow!  Maybe the Goodyear blimp or Led Zeppelin will stop by?  I will keep you posted on my progress.  Don't hold your breath for any live-action videos or pictures though.  What happens in Zumba class, STAYS in Zumba class!  Right girls?


  1. Hi Lana, Just watching the Zumba gave me enough exercise for the day... ha ha

    We have LOTS of snow up here this morning. Glad we don't have to get out!!!! It's pretty and the birds are feasting at the feeders and bath.

    Have a great weekend.

  2. I came, I saw, and it kicked my butt. I can not Zumba at all. Seriously.. I am terrible at it.
    have a great weekend.

  3. Hmmm, interesting video! I'll stick to my boring old treadmill thanks! Ha, ha!

  4. Cracked me up... WOW I did not remember the ONJ video being that full of testosterone either. WHEW!!!!

  5. Wow! Makes me want to grab a leftover Christmas cookie and sit on the couch, watch an old movie, and knit. ;-)

  6. I haven't tried it, but it does look like fun...if it doesn't kill me that is!

  7. I love zumba! I had a video about 9 years ago in college!

  8. I've never Zumba-ed, but I did break a sweat from watching a video on utube.

  9. We have Zumba classes here in my small town. They are a lot of fun and a good workout.
