Ditching the Workout to Join the Party!

So, I’m ditching the Y membership already, because we’re just not using it and it’s way too expensive to pay for and not use. We did utilize their “Family Fun Night” last night, which allowed us to drop off Zach for up to 4 hours and go out and have a date night – included in the membership. Very cool, but we could hire a sitter for a few hours a month for much less money.

I really wanted the Zumba classes, but unfortunately they are not offered at a convenient time for me, so that’s not working and in the end, both of us have only worked out 1 time since signing up.

So, I am going to buy the Zumba Exhilarate DVDs and then I can do Zumba at home, whenever I want (plus they’re offering a free pair of Zumba Cargo Pants right now with the purchase of the DVDs)! šŸ˜€

Of course, I still need to find the motivation to actually do them, but I think it should be easier than finding the motivation to get in the car, drive to the gym, then do a boring workout that I hate anyway, right? šŸ˜‰

Hopefully when they arrive, I’ll be excited to check them out and once I do them, I’ll remember how much fun they are and there will be my motivation! šŸ™‚

  1. Love Love Love Zumba!!! I have Zumba for Wii and have been trying to do that more at home. I have always wanted to buy the DVD’s, so you’ll have to let me know how they are šŸ™‚

    Have fun with it!!!!

      I will definitely let you know!! I absolutely ADORED the Zumba class that my church offered last summer, so I’m hoping this will be fun too (plus, I don’t need to worry about looking like an idiot in front of everyone! LOL!!).

  2. Yes, yes yes! šŸ™‚ Home workout DVD’s are where it’s at! I haven’t done Zumba myself… well, I tried it on the Wii but couldn’t figure out the moves.. lol I’ve been planning to go to the gym to try one of the classes but always end up staying home to do Turbo Fire or Turbo jam instead. I was glad to see you signed up on TBB & have scheduled your workouts!

      My church offered a free 6-week Zumba class last summer and that was my introduction to it and I LOVED it, so I’m hopeful that I will love these too. šŸ™‚

      I am hopeful that the DVDs will arrive by the end of the week, but I’m going to do the Wii Fit Plus (or maybe give my Zumba on Kinect another try) starting tomorrow. šŸ™‚

      Looking forward to getting familiar with and utilizing TBB!! Thanks!

    2. That is so great that your church offered Zumba for free!! šŸ™‚ & I totally agree that it is great not to have anyone watching you- I’m not self-concious at all when I work out at home. šŸ™‚ How did it go today?

        Today, not so good. We had to take our little guy to urgent care yesterday and it turns out he has bronchiolitis. We had to bring home a nebulizer machine and give him breathing treatments every 4 hours, straight through the night and all day today – I’m exhausted and just didn’t have it in me to start today.

        But! We are now done with the intense treatments and he doesn’t need anymore until tomorrow morning (and he’ll be in preschool tomorrow) so I plan to exercise after dropping him off at school in the morning. šŸ™‚

    Dani! She already covered TBB so I won’t revisit that.

    As for me and Zumba on the Kinect – haven’t tried it yet again. I plan to do so tomorrow morning after dropping my Wiggles off at preschool. šŸ˜€

    Hope you’re going well and getting acclimated better to Weight Watchers. It will work for you! šŸ™‚
