At the beginning of the year as we settled into our new home and routine, it was no sweat to make it to Zumba classes whenever I wanted to go. Heh. No sweat. Get it?
R is completely supportive of my working out and hey! the more the better.
But with school starting, T going for a full day instead of half a day, and trying to coordinate our lives which have suddenly taken a turn for the busier; my Zumba attendance has suffered dramatically. I miss it. The afternoon classes are hard to make because T needs time to unwind from school, I need to get dinner on the table earlier so the kids can go to bed earlier, so I can go to bed earlier so I can then get up earlier and get the kids up earlier. It's exhausting. And stuff keeps coming up on Tues/Thurs evenings. Like the fact that we are taking ballroom dancing classes soon. (SO excited!) S starts ballet next week, too.
I was bitching to R about missing Zumba classes and how am I supposed to improve my cardio without it and why is scheduling so hard when we only have ONE kid in Kindergarten?! What happens when they are both in high school but can't drive yet? I shudder to think. Then I got an email from my friend Chris (to whom I also bitched about my totally normal and common situation) and she suggested I check Zumba.com to see if other classes were offered. And whaddaya know? They so totally are. Woo! The only problem is that I'm going to have to pay to take these classes and that's kinda why I joined the Y. So all my cardio needs could be met for one low price. Hmm.
So, it feels great to have options, but man, I am really, really hesitant to pay additional money to take Zumba classes. I guess it comes down to how much I want it. The jury is still out. Who knows? In the next couple weeks I hope that things will settle down and I can pick up where I left off a month ago. In Zumba class, dancing my a** off. Mucho gusto!
