Zumba Take Two (or Three)

Well, I'm back on the Zumba train.  Sort of.   A few of my work friends and I started a six week session of Zumba Step last night.  You remember step aerobics from the late 80's/early 90's don't you?  Cardio to the max, while you tried not to fall off a box.  Well add really loud latin music, crazy dance moves, squats and clapping and you have Zumba Step.

The first 15 minutes I thought I was going to pass out, the second 15 minutes, I wished I would pass out and the last 30 minutes I just prayed for it to end.  Not really, but you get the idea.  I haven't actually moved a whole lot in about a year.  I loved Zumba before and I'm not sure if I'm going to love it now - but I know it's good for me and it was fun to sweat with my friends.

Today, the aches and pains started around noon time.  Going up and down the stairs became a little harder, a certain move towards my phone brought a twinge in my shoulder.  I was glad to have them all, it means I'm finally doing something towards making myself a little healthier.

I'm not sure if we will go past the 6 week session, but I do know that it's going to be good for me and I'm going to try not to complain about it too much!

Snow Day #7

It's been another one of those snowy winters and we are now on Snow Day #7, or as I like to call them "Work at Home in Your PJs" days.  Thankfully this is actually winter break at our school department, so today's Work at Home in Your PJs day only affects those of us that are year around in Central Office.  No student will have to go to school one day longer in June due to today. 

As much as I love sitting on my couch, with a rerun of America's Next Top Model playing in the background, I am pretty tired of the snow, blizzards, high winds, that we have in January and February.

So tired in fact, that B and I are heading to Florida  in two weeks for a nice long weekend of sunshine.  No plans while we are there, except to lay by a pool, or play mini golf.  I'd like to go pack right now, but I will hold off and wait for at least another day or two!

Spring can come anytime.  And I know that we are at least 5 weeks away from any sign of it around here.  I long to see the green grass  and buds on trees and a flower or two peeking through.  Florida is going to be a wonderful treat and hopefully will be just what I need to get me through this rough winter.
