Notes on the week…. I really like the OnDemand kickboxing workouts, but wish they were a little longer. I feel like I have to do 2 just to get a good burn, but the pause between the workouts kills me because my energy level drops so much. I was so happy to get back out running on Wednesday, but wish I could have enjoyed it more. It was SO muggy and my back was killing me from the new workouts I did Monday and Tuesday. As for the Zumba…yeah. I have avoided going to the Zumba classes at the fitness center because I’m afraid of looking like a total moron. My fears were confirmed Thursday. I totally lack the coordination for Zumba. Ugh. I’m glad I experimented in the privacy of my own living room…. I will say, though, that the 5 minute preview on OnDemand had me sweating more than the 30 minutes of pilates I had done before that. We’ll see. Maybe I’ll give it another shot some day. Maybe…. 😉

Hope you’re having a lovely Active August!
