A Bit of Movement & A Bit of Rest

I hate it when I sleep in a little (until 8 am) on the weekends and I wake up still feeling tired. I guess I could have slept more, but I also knew I had a few tasks to tackle today. So, up and at 'em. Did a few errands and then headed to the gym.

My workout goal for the day was to do some cardio. I haven't been doing nearly enough cardio lately and I need to work on getting more hours in. What I really wanted to do today was Zumba. I haven't been to Zumba class in ages, and I really felt that with all the stress of everything that's been going on, shaking it out to some good Latin beats is what I needed.

I put on my Zumba shoes and my 'Show me Some Zumba Love' t-shirt and was ready to go. When the instructor saw me she was like - OMG. I hope enough people show up for the class!! - Lately, they haven't been having enough people to hold classes (they need at least 3). This is what happens when summer rolls around. People are either on vacation or they'd rather be lounging by the pool than sweating it out in the studio. So I had to wait and see if anybody else would show up.

I got on the treadmill and completed 2 km before she came to get me to tell me we had 3 people - Hooray! :) It was a good class - a bit strange with only 3 of us there, but I didn't care. I just wanted to shake off all the stress I've been feeling lately and have some fun - definitely a great way to burn some calories :)

Got home, had lunch, and then took a lovely almost 2-hr nap on the sofa  and watched Wimbledon. It was a good Friday for me!


  1. I really want to get back to a Zumba class. They are so much fun and such a good burn. A great way to get cardio in... Glad you had fun!

  2. Ugh, it really makes me angry when gyms have rules like that!! Who cares if there are 3 people? 2 people? 1 person? Those people showed up and should not be punished because others did not!!! ARGH! I'm sure there is some bottom line business end of this that I'm not getting but as a client of gym, I don't care. If I show up for a zumba class or spinning or whatever else I'm doing, I want to do it!!! Sorry, I will end rant here, but it really burns me up! Glad you got to take your class!!

    And I slept in today a little bit too and feel like a large piece of poop.

  3. Love Zumba! Our gym has it at 8:30 and several of us are always late due to kid's school drop off. We're hoping they change the time in the fall. So you might get there with 5 people and by the time we finish there's 20.

  4. I'm glad you got to do your class. It seems like people are taking vacations from blogging too. :)
