# Exercise # Zumba

I get knocked down , but I get up again ...

So today was Day 2 of Zumba ..and guess who didn't turn up for class ...
Guess , guess .. Thinking Yellow Smiley Face Smile Images

Yeah you're right , it was the old lady ..
So much for cheers of ' more , more ' and not that she was my competition
but hehehehe .. guess who's having the last laugh ..
if laughing for a nanosecond counts .. that is ..
coz the other surprise was I was the only one for class today ..

Ideally you'd love the one on one session having paid for a group session but in Zumbaaa ..no way, Jose ..

Either ways I was high on confidence , my mind misleading my body to think I was better equipped to handle Day 2 ..
... yeah for about 10 mins .. and then the realisation dawned..
By the end of the class it felt like I was all over the place ..my arms flailing in all directions , my legs din't know left step from right or vice versa and need I say co-ordination sucked ...
The trainer must have gauged my predicament from my shameful sheepish grins and said for a beginner I was doing really well -
but as frustrated I was , the bitchy me almost replied - Geeee thanks - am I not suffering enough ?
but better sense prevailed and the pleasant me smiled for the much needed encouragement ..

What also encouraged me were Erika Harris's words ..she aptly said,"I frequently-regularly-often trip while reaching for my high ideals. Then I giggle, or cry, and get back up."

So I'm going to giggle and cry about it here on my blog ..
and maybe , just maybe in a couple of years months have the courage to brag and post pics , like Corinne asked ..

and pics reminds me of the Brussels post , I was supposed to do ..

  1. If it's any consolation to you, I would die on a one on one. No wait, I'd never even sign up for a zumba class in the first place! So don't be too hard on yourself, Pri. If you won't post pics, put up a vid then ;)

  2. where you doing it maybe i'll come join. You can email me. I'll make you look good.

  3. @ Corinne ..I think I'd concentrate on pics first , a video would be too ambitious ..hehehehe :D

    @ Una ..Girl ,where've u been ? Missed ya and yeah sure I'll give u the address but who makes who look good -that we'll have to wait and watch ;)

  4. A one on one for Zumba! Oh my! To have been a fly on the wall of that gym...:) I'm with Corinne, photos or video...or both!

  6. wow.. i feel for you... group- manageable.. but alone.. woow..
