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:
