Last week at this time, I was unable to walk. It was temporary but painful. I took a family vacation and had a blast in Destin. Relaxing was the name of the game...except for one activity. I decided that I'd support my sister in her fitness regime and exercise with her. Please keep in mind that I am currently sedentary. Writing sort of leads to a butt-in-the-chair lifestyle.
I walked with her several days along the beautiful sidewalks and beaches of Destin, Fl. That was fabulous. One day, I did the Insanity DVD with her. Yes, it IS insanity. No misnomer there. Another day, we did zumba. My sister teaches at the local gym and is an excellent and inspiring fitness teacher. That was so much fun, and I miss going to her classes.
I'm not sure what put my body over the edge, but I'm guessing the Insanity DVD did it. Or it may have been the zumba. Either way, I can laugh about it now. The lesson is.....don't BEGIN a fitness program with the plan outlined above. If you have a Facebook account , you can click here to see a video of her doing a zumba routine. She choreographs, records and shares with her zumba friends and students. It's a blast just to watch. Happy Friday!
