I took my first Zumba class this evening! It was so much fun! I got to the gym early today, so I hopped on the elliptical for 30 minutes. I did two 12 minute miles! I was so excited! I have never broken 14 minutes before! :) That started my evening out great! Then I headed to Zumba. I met a couple of people, and they told me how amazing it was. I was still so nervous. The class is pretty big, at least 50 people. The ladies I met recommended I stand close to the front so I could see instructors feet. So I did! This made a big difference. I wanted to be in the back so no one could see me, but I am so glad I chose the front instead. We had 2 instructors. One Female, and one male. They both were great! It was such high energy! We didn't stop moving for the whole hour! It was a struggle only in the fact that I didn't know the routine's or the moves and it was hard to keep up sometimes. This also made it much more fun though! I don't think I can become bored with this! One of the song's the played was  Brittany Spears, Womanizer. This was quite entertaining. They split the class in two and made us stand facing each other. We then began dancing towards each other. It was kind of fun! I never expected that, so it was interesting! I noticed there is a smaller class on Thursday mornings and then the bigger class that evening. I know I want to go back Thursday, I just haven't decided which class yet! 

I have one visitor's pass for my gym, so if you want to come with me Thursday, let me know! :) We can Zumba together!

All-in-all it was a great experience! I can't wait to do it again Thursday! Looks like I found my "cross-training" for my running! :)


  1. Glad u enjoyed it! I find it so exciting to be able to dance/workout and do it continuous for 1 hour. Did u know u can burn up to 1000 calories in that 1 hour class? I just found that out last wednesday nights zumba. The instructor mixed it up tonight and did a new dance which added jabs ~ talk about fun ;o) Keep up the good work girl!

  2. Yeah that's what the ladies were telling me tonight! I only burn about 700 on the elliptical, and Zumba is so much more fun! :)

Some of my Favorite Things!

I just wanted to share some of my favorite Running gear right now! :) I'll start with the one thing that everyone knows I already love... My BOB Revolution SE ! I've been using it for a a few weeks now and I'm still in Love! I'm not sure how I've lived without it these past 15 months! You can read my BOB "review" here ! :) My newest favorite thing are my hotpink Locklaces ! They are elastic shoelaces that  tighten by a "lock". They make it easy for me to just slip my shoe on and go! They are also wonderful because I have had issues with my shoelaces being too tight on the top of my foot and these fix that problem! No more pain! I wish I had known about these forever ago! I will have them on all of my future running shoes! I love their moto! Now onto something that I think every single person who is active outside should own. Pepper Spray. In this case the Personal Saver and the Wrist Saver . Th

Big News!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging much is because we just bought our very first house!!! Isn't it beautiful! We don't move in until next week, but buying a house has taken a lot of time! I've been packing our apartment up a little at a time, but we still have A LOT to do! It's hard to move with a toddler, because you don't want to shake their world up too much. They need their usual toys and to be able to find their favorite shoes amongst the boxes. Taking it slow and moving a little at a time just seemed like the best option. We are going from a 2 bedroom apartment to a 4 bedroom home!  With a backyard! Down the street from a park! We are going to have so much space!  Being able to go outside in the back and down the street to the park is a huge deal for me!  Sophie and I LOVE being outside! I am so excited! I just can't even describe it! lol :) And that's not all of the big news! I
