Brace yourselves, I did other exercise that is NOT teaching my Zumba classes. As a matter of fact, I took a class that wasn't Zumba. Can you believe it?? It's amazing what I can do with a schedule and only one kid. I have multiple classes that fit into my schedule now and I plan to go to all of them. And I am SO excited to do it!!
The class I made it to this week is called PiYo. It's a Beachbody class that is a combination of pilates and yoga. But it's not just stretching and strengthening, it's also cardio. They move from one pose to the next very quickly. I really enjoyed it and definitely felt it this weekend. The class I went to focused on legs and my legs were SORE Fri night and all day Sat!! I plan to go back most weeks as I think it's a good compliment to the Zumba class I teach right after it.
In addition to going to another class, I also spent Sunday afternoon at Dance Mania at the Y dancing with all of the other super talented Zumba instructors who teach there. We danced for over two hours. It was a really fun party! We had about 50 people come to dance with us. I led two songs, my new favorite cumbia and the old class favorite "Country Girl." I had a great time!!
Here's what I did this week:
Wednesday - Taught a one hour Zumba class and walked back & forth from school for pick up
Thursday - Taught a one hour Zumba class, a one hour Zumba Gold class and a one hour Zumba Toning class, plus I walked back & forth from school for pick up
Friday - Did 30 minutes of PiYo class, taught a one hour Zumba class, went to Zoombeezi Bay with Zak for 2 hours (we walked the lazy river 5-6 times!!)
Saturday - Taught 2 one hour Zumba classes and went fruit picking with the family
Sunday - Danced for two hours at Dance Mania
Monday - Taught a one hour Zumba Toning class and a 45 minute Zumba class
Tuesday - I planned to go to Muscle Conditioning but it was Zak's last day before school started and he wanted to stay home so I let him. I walked around my kitchen/living room for 10 minutes to keep my streak alive. I probably needed the rest day anyway.
All in all it was a great week. I'm really proud that I did two things that weren't teaching. I'm excited to do more in the next few weeks. I'm also excited to report that after a disappointing week last week, I saw a huge loss this week on the scale - 5 pounds!! That brings me back to my pre-vacation weight. My goal was to maintain all summer and I'm going to call that a success! Now on to losing a bit before I try to maintain thru the holidays.
