Jazzercise Review and a Few Other Things...

I am back from Jazzercise class.  Oh my!  Fun!  It is pretty much like Zumba with out the Latin flare and sexy moves.
  • There were no leg warmers.
  • There were no sweat bands.
  • There were no Jazz hands or Sparkle fingers.  :(
  • But there were old ladies...and young ladies too.  No men.
  • We danced to everything from Beyonce to Michael Jackson to some random songs from the 70s that I consider "easy listening for the over 50 crowd".
I don't really enjoy the floor workout at the end of the class wear one lays (lies?) on the floor and does abdominal work and weight lifting.  I am so used to having my "padding" AKA fat, so now with out my padding, laying on the floor hurts...even with that mat.  sigh...

A few other things...
  1. I have a fill scheduled for tomorrow afternoon.  My last fill was 4+ months ago and it was a "big girl fill".  I notice that I can eat alot more lately and get hungry more often between meals. I am snarfing down a turkey/egg white 6" sub from Subway while I type this....see? I need a fill.  Anyways, I think I will ask for a smidge of a fill..maybe .2 or .3 ccs.  This also means that I get to stand on their magic scale that will tell me my body fat percent and other random info like body impedence (whatever that is).  I have a goal to be (one day) 25% body fat or less.  Pretty doable in my opinion.  I started at 52% body fat before surgery. yikes.
  2. I will be meeting up with a local bandster and blogger next week!  Betcha can't guess who?  You will have to be in suspense until next time.
  3. Weigh-in day tomorrow!


  1. Who are you meeting? No fair!

    My grandma taught me, "Only hens 'lay'." Everyone else lies down.

  2. lol at Amandas post!

    Interesting. I might have to try and jazzercise class then!
    Looking forward to finding out who you are meeting!

  3. Jazzercise sounds fun. Can't wait to hear what the magic scale says and who you're meeting!!!

  4. I haven't done jazzercise in years, I did have fun even back then;-)

  5. All I can think of when I see jazzercise is Olivia Newton John's song...."Let's Get Physical". Hehehehe.

  6. No sparkle fingers? Stick to zumba. :)

  7. Good luck with that fill! I am sending you Perfect Fill vibes.

  8. It's always great to meet another blogger. No matter who it is I'm sure it will be a blast.

  9. I used to go to Jazzercize all the time! I loved it. Good luck with your fill and body fat test!!!!!

  10. I forgot about the floor exercises at the end. When I was going, there were several of us who would just duck out as people were getting their mats out. :)

  11. Can't wait to find out who you're meeting, and good luck on your fill! :)

  12. Sounds like fun! I remember doing Jazzercise in the 1980s. I want to do it again. There's a place right by my house - maybe I'll try it!

  13. Jazzercise looks to be a very good form of cardio work out. Any dance is a cardio work out if you think of it.
    Only dancers don't think of it as a form of exercise. They think of it as a form of art that they love to do.
    I'm no dancer and I find it hard to do it. I'd rather run but this is something worth looking into if i have a partner to practice with.
