5. Make fitness fun!
47. Take an unusual class
So it’s been a busy couple of weeks for me, professionally and physically. I took the first two weeks of January to recover from illness and various ails that I won’t go into now! So I felt in dire need of moving, stepping up and getting my fit on. Plus January is a lonnnnnnnnnnnng month (or certainly feels like it) so I talked my sister into extending our trips to the gym to actually trying some classes.
Success! I have never had so much fun at the gym, if you haven’t tried Zumba yet, you must do. I smiled the entire way through. Laughed at myself, laughed at the instructor who was so fun and cool, laughed at my sister. Plus as my sister said you work hard but you don’t realise you have until the end, the whole class atmosphere was party like. You may have guessed I loved it and have booked to go back next week! I am already looking forward to the release of the Zumba game on the PS3, it is move compatiable so I can zumba at home! Whoop, ps if anyone wants a reviewer for this, I am available

And this is an advert for the Zumba game
Looks awesome, I do love a spot of dancing, even if I have two left feet!
PS - WE also tried Aqua Fit, I’d always assumed it was a class for grannies, how wrong was I? Dear me foam weights may look amusing on dry land but under water = killer. Argh but also fun
Next week pilates, oh yeah, bring it on!
Love ya folks xxxx
I have been working hard since last month on researching my family tree and it has been really interesting. My sister is also very curious about our ancestors and so it is something we have started doing together. I am enjoying it, it is difficult though to complete with only snippets of information but we are getting there. A lot of my Mum’s family are from Southern Ireland, near Cork and we manged to find some details for her aunt (her father’s sister).
Today my Mum and her sister rang her, they hadn’t spoken in so long due to my Nan uncomfortableness in relation to her Husband’s family. You see my Grandfather died when my Mum was only 12, and so my Nan was a young woman and she met someone new. I think being in touch with her dead husband’s family was hard for such a proud woman. She worried about what people thought and I imagine it troubled her greatly. Plus they lived in Ireland, and she, in Yorkshire. Distance, out of sight, out of mind. It was easier. But we’ll never know if that is true because my Nan died last year. Which is why we want to know more. My Mum does too. It is important to me as I felt like I was close to my Nan but never really knew her and that is weird. To me anyway
So the call made my Mum happy and it was nice to think we’ll get to know our relations in Ireland a little better, make up for time lost. I am not crossing this one off for a longggggg time I think, especially as it will take me and my sister ages to complete the research for both sides of the family. “Who do you think you are?” has a lot to answer for!
"'Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?'
'That depends a good deal on where you want to get to,' said the Cat.
'I don't much care where --' said Alice.
'Then it doesn't matter which way you go,' said the Cat.
'--so long as I get somewhere,' Alice added as an explanation."
