Cardio Funk!

 So yesterday I went to a Cardio Funk class at the YMCA. Man it was intense, but soo fun! The instructor was awesome and totally into it, which that's what I always think makes the group classes worthwhile. It was like a mix of Zumba and cardio moves. It was jam packed full and most people already knew all the dances! I was a little lost at first but most of them were easy to pick up. I wore my new nike shoes and rocked it out(: I'm definitely going back next week.

My pre-class fuel; orange energy beans and an orange, yet I'm color coordinated!
And wait for it, yep that's right; my after school snack happened to be orange too; I don't know if you can tell, but that's a Carrot Cake Smoothie, a la Oh She Glows. And yes I did spend the time to make it all pretty(: and then I dug in..

Here's me post workout; yeah for some reason I don't sweat that easily, but the class was still definitely a workout!

From the class, I learned not only some new dance moves, but also, that I shouldn't compare myself so much. Sure most people there could keep up and had some awesome moves, whilst me, with my long awkward legs couldn't have the same skills, haha. But I know that with practice I will get better! I think I just need to focus more on the beat of the music and try to follow someone who knows what they are doing. Also, I need to try not to judge so much! I mean of course it was just in my head, but I want to work on giving people more credit, because you never know their story. Everyone judges, it's just human nature, but like I said, I'm going to try and work on that. I'll leave you with some things I'm loving lately;

My puppy and coconut milk in my coffee!!

I used Donut Shop Decaf Coffee (k-cup) and Trader Joe's Light Coconut Milk
 Do you ever find yourself judging other people? Maybe you just think they have an attitude or think they are better than everyone else, but you never know, they could be nice too! For me it was these two pretty girls in front of me who were probably cheerleaders or dancers at one point because they were really good, but they were also checking themselves out in the mirror the whole class and texting on their phone in between every other song, oh well, I should just focus on me and becoming a better and stronger dancer!

  1. i love taking a zumba class every once in awhile, so combining it with some cardio moves sounds like an awesome class! i never get too much of a workout at the zumba classes at my gym- but they're so much fun! :)
