I Have an Addiction...

To what?  JAZZERCISE!!  That's right. I am addicted to it.  I love it and kind of can't live without it.  A good friend of mine and former Visiting Teacher teaches the class.  She is working on becoming a certified instructor of the "Jazz"(say that in a French accent, it's more fun).  She has been kind enough to teach us at the church for free until she has a place to teach.  It is a killer workout(I sound so sporty, don't I?) and you sweat a ton!  It's works pretty much every muscle I have, even ones I didn't know I had.  We don't Jazzercise to any 80s songs(yet, I will have to discuss doing "Physical" by Olivia Newton John with Allison soon), it's mostly today's "hottest hits," and it is so much fun.

I have gone when I have been tired and cold.  I have gone with a stomach bug and other illnesses.  I can't seem to keep myself from doing it.  I go every time Allison has it.  It makes me happy and I have lost 9lbs. just by doing it.  I stand up straighter with good posture and I have gained so much muscle.  The best part about all of this is that BFF Janelle is just as obsessed as I am!!  She is really good at it too.  I have no coordination, so I have had to work very hard to get the routines down.  But Janelle just picks it up so naturally, I'm kind of jealous.

I have decided that once Allison is certified and has a place to teach that I will continue to take classes.  I don't know if I could function without it, haha.  Maybe, just maybe, if I get really good, one day I will teach.  It actually sounds like an achievable goal.  However, I will have to fake peppy, that obviously isn't me, haha. As I come to the close of this blog post confession, I would like to leave you with this little gem that my good friend Logan found for me:
