Body Jam

I made it to Body Jam last night, and I'm so glad that I gave it a try. Body Jam is somewhat like Zumba (similar moves with lots of hip rolling) but it is a dance routine. You learn each step and then combine the steps, so unlike Zumba you don't start over with each new song, rather you keep doing the same moves throughout the hour. Since the rest of the class has been doing the same routine for the past month, I was definitely not as strong a dancer. But I gave it my all and got in a good workout. I managed to follow about 80% of the steps--so not bad for a first timer :) The instructor was awesome and he was such a good dancer that I was able to pick up the steps pretty well. I'm definitely going to make Body Jam a part of my workout routine.

So far, I have managed to work out 4 times this week and it's only Tuesday! So I am pretty happy about that. Today, I am going to give my legs a rest, and tomorrow is my Zumba class, so that will make 5 times :) On the downside, all of this exercise has definitely made me hungrier, so I've had to work hard to stay within my points. So far so good.

Anyway, tonight the guy R invited me to this show/ concert thing and I'm a little anxious about going because (a) it's going to be very late on a weeknight, (b) I really don't want to drink very much alcohol so close to weigh in, and last but not least, (c) I'm not sure how much I like R. Anyway, I don't really want to go, but now I feel obligated so I guess I'm stuck with the plans (I tried to get out of it last night, but he convinced me to say yes).

Anyway, I have to get back to work. Wish me luck on this date tonight :)

  1. I'm so impressed how you try so many different classes at the gym! I have to learn to branch out a bit. I hope the date goes well! It's always good to give them a chance so you can figure out whether you're into it or not. Good luck!
