ZUMBA was this morning! I got the kids up, we dashed around the house, and out the door by , which is early for us. (I must say that that since they are older it is a bit easier to get out before !) Dana was ready to kick our butts from the moment the music started! I had to laugh though…..during the workout Dana reminded us to hold our abs in. My first thought was like a light bulb going off….I guess holding your abs in would be smart. So I squeezed them in….well at least I tried to (after two c-sections I am never sure if the lower ones are doing anything)! So I focused really hard to keep them tight….but the bad thing is I forgot to breathe!!!! LOL…..I can only imagine my facials as I am not breathing fighting to hold these non-existing abs in!!! Once I realized what I was doing it took me forever to recover!! Oh the joys of getting in shape!
But I have to say I do like working out in the morning! Although it is crazy getting out of the house…..I find that I eat better the rest of the day because I hate to ruin all the hard work I put into my workout. I think when I workout at night I feel I can cheat more during the day b/c I am going to work it off anyway! Oh how distorted my little mind can be. Another great advantage is it gets me up and moving! I don’t get sucked into the computer or anything else….I start off being productive & then have more energy for the rest of the day….and I make sure I get my workout in – No excuses!!! So right now I am very thankful that my schedule (and kids) allows me to dance my mornings away!!!
