After my sister-in-law (T) and I came back from our yoga retreat, I did nothing (in terms of exercise) for a week. On Wednesday evening she suggested we go to a Zumba class the following morning. I agreed to that – I felt like I needed to get off my ass and do something.
So we left home at around 9.15 to get to Chai Studios, just a few minutes away. I registered and paid the drop-in fee of JA$1500. I didn’t think the class would be busy at 9.35 but there were about 15 women in the class. There were several fans in the studio which were on – and three air conditioners which were switched off. I’d done Zumba when I lived in London and I’d enjoyed it. In this class I didn’t know any of the songs – which made following the moves harder. Does that make sense?? I think the class would be better described as ‘Island Zumba’…
Halfway through the class the instructor switched on the air-conditioning – thank God, because we were all drenched in sweat by then. I don’t think I did too badly for my first class though. There were only two songs where I really had no idea what the f*** was going on!
T suggested we go to Zumba on Friday morning at 8.30 but after going to the cricket match the night before, it didn’t happen!
Low point of the week? Being lazy and unmotivated – and feeling hot all the time!
High point of the week? At least I made it to one Zumba class!
Weight loss? Very funny. Ha ha.
