Off to my Zumba/Aero Tuesday class

Zumba day

Still fresh looking – before the work-out

It’s Tuesday… this is when I start my Aerobics/Zumba work-out session, 3 times a week. Our color for the day is orange. Zumba is not only to keep me fit but my stress reliever as well. My week is not complete without having to attend at least once, but I always make it a point to attend it regularly and if my schedule permits, four times the most.

Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth, faithfulness the best relationship. – Buddha


after our Zumba with my Zumba/Aeromates

I got to meet new people and acquire new friends, unlike before where I just stayed at home the whole day, tidying the house, attending to family needs and then sits in front of the computer to do my online tasks. Now I have allotted a few hours in a week for myself which is a big respite from the boredom I was experiencing before. As the saying goes “healthy body is a healthy mind”, I can say I’m not only fit physically but renewed and happy in the company of my new-found friends, creating a more blissful relationship with my family, I even persuading my husband to join, but he’s still reluctant being seen dancing(?)  lol…  he’d rather walk or ride his bike as his exercise.  :P
