I say that because I’m back at it with Zumba. Now here’s the thing, I was going to give myself a month or so before I started Zumba class againnn, but here’s how things went.
7/29 – So on Tuesday I decided to go to the gym with my pops, I signed up at a new gym called Chuze Fitness. Some of my cousins and one of my Tios goes there and it’s a pretty good deal. The premium membership (the membership I have) offers you the gym, classes, free tanning (which is a total no-no), hydromassaging, a free shirt and some other things… all for $20 a month! WHATTT.. yes, yes! Gyms are getting cheap these days thanks to Planet Fitness and their $10 a month dealio that exploded countrywide (shout out to my amiga, Lisa B, who works at their HQ in Portsmouth, NH). hahaaa Anywho, so I joined the gym and then decided to work out with my dad that same day. Let’s put it this way… I worked out for 15 mins on the treadmill & 15 on the elliptical and I was toast! I think my dad did like 20 mins of working out all together and he was spent. We are both messes and totally out of shape! Later on that night I needed to take some friggin Aleve because I was in pain. It’s just so sad that I’m not young anymore and my body is already have aches and pains… yikes!
7/30 – My cousin Federica called me up to ask me if I wanted to go to Zumba with her, since she’s also a member at Chuze. I really wanted to refuse because I want to get into the groove of working out, but ended up telling her I’d go with her. I was reallll nervous because of how I felt the night before after working out. Plus, when I got there the glass was packed with over 30+ people. Ridic. But the highlight of all of it was that zumba really was like learning how to ride a bike again. Once I got back to it, it was like 2nd nature. Previous to 7/30, I hadn’t done Zumba since September of 2012! … I know, I know. It was a great workout with my cuz and we def had a good time! So there… i broke the ‘zumba ice’ real quick and now I back in it. I’m def taking things at my own pace, but it’s nice to be back.
7/31 – No gym.
8/1 – No gym againnn.
8/2 – Went to a morning Zumba class with some hot shit instructor who knowsss she’s good. I got a snooty vibe from her, but that could just be her extreme confidence pertruding. hahaa Heck, I wish I could dance like her! She’s def a trained dancer, CPT, etc. The class was definitely hardcore and it was obvious I had no idea what was going on in a class FULL of regulars. woof. Not gonna lie, can’t wait to go back to her class! 😀 Ohhh and we did a song to Pitbull’s ‘Shake Senora’… absolutely obsesssed w/ that jam! Def new fav workout AND zumba jam. Adding it to my workout song of the week on the right hand panel. —–>
8/3 – No gym.
8/4 – After church, went to the gym in the afternoon with my cousin Valerie & Araceli. My cuz Val joined the gym yesterday and my Tia Mona & her bf Derrick are joining the same gym as well! Talk about a damn family affairrr! I loveeee it. I suggest we get matching neon green shirts that we all wear when we’re at the gym. I have lots of family… we could def infest this gym with all our matching shirts… and take ovaaa! 😀 hAAA! But really… matching shirts, I’m checkin into that. So my we did circuit training of cardio and weights and then I hit it hard on the elliptical for 30 mins. Solidddd. Then some other cousins (Leo & Lorenzo aka Chito) showed up and lifted some weights.
We ended all with a trip to my Tia Mona’s Chipotle across the street and I tore up a burrito bowl. Oy.
So that’s that for last week. This week I’m planning on hitting up Zumba and wearing my fitbit. My fitbit and I had been on hiatus because it was hidden in a few boxes, but I got it and have it on now. hahaa Friend me on fitbit!
Chat soon, kiddos!
