So...today is Anything Can Happen Day...and I really believe that. Anything CAN happen. How 'bout this...I acutally participated in a Zumba class on Tuesday evening!!! Yes, the girl with two left feet was in Zumba!!! I had heard that it was not all that bad of a workout. Well, it is a great workout...and I am certain that once I get the hang of it, I will have a lot of fun. The class was comprised of women of all different ages and sizes. I did not feel out of place, uncoordinated...yes, but out of place...no.
I took this from the Official Zumba website, http://www.zumba.com/ Just a little information about Zumba...
~~~Let's face it, working out can be healthy, rewarding and beneficial. Working out can be lots of things, but it's never been known to be an exhilarating experience…UNTIL NOW!

Why? Because it's the best party around. ~~~
Well...I'm not ready to call it a party, exactly...but it was an enjoyable workout. I AM going back next week..two left feet and all...I will not feel self-conscious. I may not have been the smallest, the prettiest, the most-coordinated or even best dressed...but I am working on improving myself...and if anyone else does not like that, then too darn bad...THEY are the ones that need to change, then!!!
See...Anything CAN happen!!!
