Zumba, Dreams, Halloween



I went to ZUMBA for the very time with my good friend Emmy this week.  It was a lot of fun.  It also was hard.  I am so out of shape.  I also felt like the most awkward woman in the room.  I like what Emmy said, "She (the instructor) makes me feel so white!"  That was spot on!  Poor white women with no rhythm.  The funny thing is we both can dance.  I can really appreciate the stars on DWTS now.  It is seriously like okay your going to do a dance you have never done before and you just follow along.  Oh and it is a mix of Latin and Belly dancing.  I do think a lot of it is muscle memory.  But the thing is, I liked it.  It was nice to be out doing something that wasn't grocery shopping, taxiing kids around, or making meals.  This was all about me.  And I like to be all about me...sometimes.

I had a very bizarre dream last night.  I am guessing my nose must have been completely blocked on one side because in this dream I had cotton balls, wads of toilet paper, and even a plastic bag up in there.  I wasn't picking my nose in my dream.  However, I had like an inside view.  Think The Fantastic Voyage.  Or for you younger folk, Innerspace.  

Now that I have completely grossed you all out, why don't you go and visit my other blogs today:  Point and Shoot and Metabolism Blues.

Have a Happy and safe Halloween!!

I am so glad you posted that video, because I had no idea what Zumba was. Now I really want to go to a zumba class because I feel fubsy (real word! I just learned it and right now it is possibly my favorite word ever) and I know exercise is exactly what I need.

What a funny dream! I hate when I have dreams like that. This morning I dreamed that my hubby brought the baby to me, but she didn't want to eat from me, she only wanted to suck her thumb, which is weird because she hasn't sucked her thumb since she was a new born. Funny what dreams do to you.

Isn't it crazy how your dreams sometimes feel so real based off something in your sleep!

My mom has been doing Zumba and she loves it! I haven't the nerve...or the gym membership. :)

This looks like amazing fun, (and an amazing work out too)! How cool! I'm impressed!

Emmy said...

Glad you had fun! My plan is to go weekly so obviously I would love if you came.

And that dream is hilarious!

what do you mean you did something for yourself?...the nerve!...now there will be all kinds of pressure on the rest of us to go out and get a life...sheesh...
Seriously, glad you liked the zumba. I have been hearing so much about it.

Huh. And I always thought Zumba was some kind of sports drink.

That looks like quite a workout. Keep going. It will get a little bit easier every time.
