I talk too much. For anyone that knows me, knows that that is a very real statement. My husband even had the song "You Talk Too Much" as my ring tone once (he immediately took it down for some reason, though). At any rate, I'm now proving my point. So, what is the point?
Well, today was zumba and I needed it. I was kind of dragging today because of lack of sleep. Netflix and past episodes of "Gossip Girl" are not a good combination for me. So, when it was time to zumba, I was ready. I needed a jolt of endorphins. The class was about triple the size of last week's, and I saw a few more people that I haven't seen in a while. It was fun.
So, what's the problem? I was chatting the whole time! Believe me, I was still exercizing. However, I was chatting with a friend to my left about cookie booths. I was chatting to a lady I had never met before to my right, about this blog and the community 5k. AND I was chatting to the two ladies in front of me (one was my daughter's former 1st grade teacher) just for fun. It was fun and it made the class go by faster, but I was going left when Kim was going right. Zumba is a concentration sport. You either pay attention or you pretend to move. I think I was doing a bit of both.
I still got a pretty good workout out of it, but I think if I would have shut my mouth, I could have burned more calories.
Thanks for listening to my random thoughts and remember, it just takes one foot in front of the other.
