Yesterday was a day of bad decisions for me. First, I agreed to be chairperson of a board that I am currently on. That may not seem bad on the surface but trust me this will eat up so much of my time and just hearing of my responsibilities makes me cringe. I tried to say no, but I allowed myself to be talked into it. FAIL!
Then I went running with the girls, always a fun time. Sure we at times giggle and goof off more than we actually run but it was a good time, just what I needed after a LONG day. After the run I was reminded that I said I would do Zumba with them on Friday (i.e. my day off). At the time on the runner energy high that sounded awesome what is one more workout to me I am an average everyday sane psycho super goddess, right...right? Well, now that it is morning and I am tired from doing 14.4 miles this week plus 4 days with yoga added in, I am not so sure. Then I made the huge mistake of googling what exactly Zumba is (BTW it is not what I thought. Nope. Not at all. I told you I was making bad decisions, why else would I agree to something without knowing what it is, oh the arrogance!!).
Anyway for those who do not know what it is, it is Latin dancing. That may not sound scary to you Latin dancers out there, but let me explain to you the last Latin dancing experience I had. I bought towards the beginning of the year a Dancing with the Stars workout video (no I do not actually watch the show I just thought dancing would be a fun way to workout which was a New Years goal). I did the tape once. First of all, I was a complete spazz and embarrassed myself and I was in the privacy of my own home. Seriously, I was a clown. I couldn't put all the moves together fast enough to keep up and most of the time I just flailed around like I was having seizures. Not a pretty sight, I assure you. Second of all, I managed to hurt my knee in all of the flailing. This knee injury kept me from working out for a while which then lead to a 3 month break.
However I am a lady of my word. I will go tonight and I will try not to injure myself or others in my grand flailing. *FLAIL* Wish me luck, I will need it!
