Get in Shape, Girl -- With Zumba!

This past Tuesday night, I got my workout on! I, along with Lady Clara and Sir Isaac, attended a Zumba class held in a dance studio at the Restoration building in Bedstuy Brooklyn. From the start of the hour-long class to its conclusion, personal fitness trainer and Zumba dance instructor Carolina Walicki ( has us in motion with Latin, hip hop and Indian tunes. I wwas stepping, winding and twisting away -- non stop! It felt good, too.

As I followed Carolina while watching myself in the mirror, I could feel my body toning up even more. And, how could this not be the case?! After all, Carolina had instructed me and my workout mates with fun but concentrated moves. I was working my abs, arms, thighs, hips and all.

In between songs, I took in some much needed H2O (and boy oh boy did it taste refreshing!). I sipped then stepped. In addition to getting in a workout routine, attending the Zumba class offered fellowship among women. We worked out real hard and laughed all the while. Our smiles and eyes communicated that we were having a great time working out together. We encouraged each other to keep moving and gave each other a signal on the correct turn to make. It was a blessed workout session.

I truly felt charged afterward. I shared with my workout sistahs after class was over. They shared back on the importance of being there. Zumba class with Carolina meets every Tuesday from 7:30 to 8:30 pm. I'll be back. My children will be joining me (Oh yes, that's the other benefit. I can work out with my tweens.)

Lady Clara recorded the workout session so stay tuned to for the video posting. I must say... I got my workout on!

Make the time to workout. It's good for your body as well as your spirit. So go ahead, get in shape girl!

Until I write you next... I'm just  living the solo mommy life!

Love you!
