Missy, here. And it's Favorite Friday! You know, we mostly talk about favorite foods or places to eat. Today I want to talk about your favorite way to work off those foods!
I'm not a fan of exercise. I usually try to avoid it. :) But last fall, I discovered Zumba. I had heard all the ladies at church talking about how fun it was, but I never made myself go. Then one day, I decided I needed to do something for my health. And I put on my workout clothes and dragged myself over to our church gym.
I met Debbie for the first time and loved the fact she wasn't some tiny, skinny-as-a-rail Energizer bunny. No, she was (in my book)...normal. Average. An everyday woman who could teach us the dances and encourage us to join her.
Granted, Debbie could do the moves and give 110% though the whole hour! (And I was dragging those first few weeks.) But she didn't make me feel inadequate.
I was hooked.
I had a blast and continue to do so. I've finally found a type exercise that I don't dread. I actually look forward to it! I love the music, and I love the moves. And I love the fun ladies who join me in the dancing.
In case you've never heard of it, here's the Zumba website where you can learn about it. Here's what they say on the website:
So what about you?? How do you burn off all the wonderful calories we eat here at the cafe?
