Some People Should Never do Zumba

A while back I thought it would be a good idea to buy a Zumba CD for my Wii. It was only today that I tired it for the first time and ohhhh, it was not a pretty sight. Normal people who do Zumba look like this…

I look like this…

I am not kidding though I wish I was. Add a pair of yoga pants and a lot of sweat and you get me doing Zumba. When I started the workout I was home alone with the living room curtains closed. My son arrived home and come upstairs and proceeded to laugh at me. The sweat was pouring off me. I had gone swimming this morning and I was wetter with this workout than the one in the pool. When I was finished I took off my sweaty workout clothes and when I dropped them to the ground they thudded. Honestly, I have never been coordinated. I was the last or second to last picked for an competitive sports. (Something I still have not recovered from emotionally so thank you Tanya, Joanne F., Sean S. and Cindy P.) This unearthly uncoordination can only have been a recessive gene because everyone else in my family can walk without tripping and go up a flight of stairs and stay upright. My husband, bless him, ┬áis always very helpful when we go for walks and holds my hand like I am 3 because he has seen me in action. Anyway, Zumba didn’t really work out and after 20 minutes I thought I was going to DIE. Holy crap. I should have lost the last 20 pounds I want to lose in that time but I weighed myself and nope…still up there.
