Zumba Gold

I went to Zumba Gold. Good thing I didn't go to plain Zumba. Zumba Gold (for old people) kicked my butt! I was exhausted. In fact, I left early, because I was that out of shape and pooped. There were 5 women and 1 man. All the women but one were "traditionally built". Even the instructor was not a svelte young thing. I am not sure if I like Zumba Gold (or any other color). At least this one class was reminiscent of aerobics classes I used to try back in the old days, cardio moves to music. I never liked those classes too much, and this was just a jazzed-up version of aerobics.

It was a good work out, though, and I could use a good kick in the butt at the gym, so ... maybe I'll convince myself to attend this class weekly and see how long it takes for it to become easier for me. I'm stiff and sore this evening, but I must admit it hurts in a good way.

Our annual quilt show (my local guild) started today, and I can't wait to go take a look. I'm going tomorrow. I have not seen any of it yet as I was unable to help on set-up day.

This is a quilt I made (and Diane S. quilted) but it's not hanging in the show... it belongs to someone else, so the show organizer allowed me to display a photograph of it instead.

I occasionally do Aquatic Zumba but it doesn't really translate to the pool very well. By that I mean I get a much better work out in the pool doing regular Aqua Aerobics. I think you "float or flow" too much in your zumba dance moves while at the Aerobics you are constantly using the "drag" of your body to your advantage too. Anyway, I'm proud of you for trying....I love to move to music so it's all good.
