I tried Zumba officially for the first day. It was sitting on my doorstep, waiting for me to take it in from the cold. My friend picked me up from work, so I was unable to immediately put it in and see what it was like. But that didn't keep me from it. Seconds after my friend left, I turned on my DVD player and popped the first disk in. Some of the steps were familiar to me, because of my previous unofficial practice sessions online in the last week. Others were new, and some were down right difficult. But the music is enchanting, easy to find a rhythm. It reminded me to actually look for a rhythm while moving my body. Before I realized it, 30 minutes had gone by. I feel awesome. I don't actually want to stop right now, but I can feel my body getting tired (Its been a while since its been used like this- I will probably feel it in the morning) and I have homework and sleep that needs attending. Hopefully I will wake up refreshed tomorrow and ready to do it again. I'm actually counting the minutes til I get to Zumba again!
