I thought all day today about what my next blog post would be about.  I had it all figured out in my head and had even sorted the illustration out.  It was going to be a good one... and then I went to the gym.

I had been really bad, I hadn't done any exercise in more than a month, I had gone back to being a couch potato (love that expression).  Finally I decided to go back and yay! I had the most fun I had had in ages.

When I was younger, my sister and I came up with this cutting edge way of exercising without even noticing your were doing it. What we did was play the loudest music we could and dance like crazy lunatics who had lost control of their motor skills.  I guess it was just dancing, but we had so much fun and did it for hours without even complaining once.
A few years later, having moved away and replaced my sister with an anti dancing Englishman, and having never been a fan of night clubs, I thought my dancing days were over, until I found Zumba!
I had been to loads of "dance" aerobic classes before, but none of them had me jumping around doing air guitar before! I love it!  It's a selection of different rythms, from Rock and Roll, to Twist, to Salsa and even Cumbia (from Colombia!).  I have to say yes it is silly, but you will feel it the next day!
So if you have the chance look for Zumba at your local Gym or Google it for classes. It will make you happy and hot! What else do you want?


Baila Baila
Zumba Zumba
Shimmy Shimmy
Rumba Rumba

Shake your booty 
move you're hips
Kiss a boy
right on the lips!

Have some fun
and sweat a little
jump around
and you won't brittle!

                          Si Señorita!
