Oh, you won't look like a fool. I go to zumba at the local YWCA, and I LOVE it. I am a little overweight, and there are all body types there; some much larger than me, some much smaller, some young, some older.... Some have the moves down pat, some are completely off, but everyone is having a great time! And it definitely works up a sweat too, if you are into it.

I am really trying to get back into shape. I would LOVE to love about 30 lbs, but I think 20 is more realistic. I go to zumba once a week, and try to make it to the gym about 3-4 times. If I was not gone every single weekend, I would like to up that another day too, but ah well. I am starting to run now... I was never a big fan (FI runs) but I want to challenge myself to do a 5km race soon... and not be one of the last ones across the finish line.
My problem is, FI is out of town for work until end of August, and I find my eating patterns are way off. I do eat less than I did when he was here all the time, but at irregular times, and then convenient.... Like, yesterday I was all healthy all day, and then on my way home I realized I had a bunch of stuff to do in about half an hour. So supper plans went out the window, and instead grabbed a happy meal and a kit kat bar. Grrrrrr..... And then I was annoyed at myself.
But, live and learn. Today I purposefully brought supper with me, so I can eat early after work, before commuting home and running errands. I won't be getting home till 8 tonight. Too late to eat healthily (I try to be in bed by nine or ten, as I am up at 5). It is pretty tough to plan everything, but I think I will get the hang of it.
