Meet our Zumba Instructor, Dacia! She's fantastic and has a body to totally inspire! So fit and toned!!
I had so much fun! I LOVE music with a beat ( I was a drummer in high school :)
so I knew I'd love Zumba♥
I wore my Polar F6 heart rate monitor and was super excited to see that I burned 706 calories in this one-hour workout! Woohoo!! I do have to say I forgot to hit the 'start' button until we were into the workout for 3-5 minutes and I also took a break to go looking for a water fountain since I totally forgot to bring my water bottle.
I've been doing some Turbo Jam and The Firm dvds at home and the most I've burned with them is 465 in a 45 min. session so it's pretty comparable I guess. This was fun and I never thought I could do a full hour of anything physical like this, but the mood, the music and the fun of 30 people partying together made it what it was!!
I thought I'd report also on how the last month has gone for me with my 'healthier living' change up :)
I'm doing it the old fashioned way..........monitoring calories in, calories out and it appears to be working just fine. I've had a few days that I strayed but I tried to get right back on track.
I've lost 8 lbs and 7.75 inches!!
Have a great week everyone and thank you all for your sweet compliments on my last journal page!
I like this Zumba commercial I found online!
