Good Morning Luv-lies,
Woke up this morning a little slower than usual. Instead of the usual::
rolling over, firmly planting my feet on the floor and springing up
sort of reminiscent of my twenty-something self,
THIS morning’s roll over, feet planting, ‘springing up’ was replaced by my actual fifty-something self::
stiffness that just falls shy of “I’m just going to lay here like a beached whale”!
For a moment,
I couldn’t figure out for the life of me,
why I was feeling like ‘The Tinman’ – rusty & ‘crickety’!
I managed to rise ‘n shine.
While practically inhaling my cup of ‘jo, it came to me the reason that I was sooooooo very, very STIFF!
…. The GREAT time that I had at yesterday’s Zumbathon fundraiser for Breast Cancer – PARTY IN PINK!!!
*sigh of relief….. I’m not getting old*
I have to tell you, Luv-lies, it was well worth all of this stiffness and more!
I woke up early to may sure that I had breakfast … boiled egg whites (with a few yolks…. a girl needs some ‘good’ cholesterol), sliced Pink Apples sautéed in EVOO and seasoned with cinnamon, nutmeg with Raspberry & Chocolate vinegar *yum yum*. And a mug of jo’
(usually I don’t eat before a class, but this was scheduled for two high energy, nonstop dancing).
Weapons of Mass Destruction:
I arrived early in hopes of meeting up with some of my Zumba friends and was glad that they let us in early. Gave us time to take pics and stake our territory 🙂
A Big Shout Out! to Maribeth for organizing this Great Event!
… and after the introduction of all of our fierceless instructors (the children were backup dancers :-))
we were ready to Zumba !!!!
we like to jam with minimal lights…. nightclub-like
The Instructors kept me sweating for two nonstop hours…. and I loved every second !!!
After the last routine, Maribeth was joined on stage by the instructors as they gave all of us a round of applause for making this a successful event. That was very special!
Many more pictures were taken before we left to ice our happy muscles and feed our growling stomaches
Needless to say that a good time was held by all !!!!!
This is the second Zumbathon that I’ve participated in this summer. The first one was for a personal achievement. This one is even more significant because this two hour Party in Pink raised a over $2500.00 that will be donated to the fight for the cure for Breast Cancer.
Thank You for going down memory lane with me….
What did you do this weekend?
