Some people still think Jazzercise is a bunch of ladies in legwarmers lightly prancing around a gym.
Yes, there's a lot of funky dancing, but there are also elements of kickboxing, strength training and good ol' fashioned squats and lunges.
This morning I was still working on my post-Biggest Loser motivation high, so when it came time for squats, I squatted. Sure, I made sure my knees didn't go over my toes and I stuck my butt out like I was sitting in a chair but this time I got down. I figured "hey, I'm already hot and sweaty so I'm going for it." I also realized that the few pounds I've lost over the past week have really lightened the load. It's probably just a fraction of the extra energy that the Biggest Loser contestants feel when the weight really starts coming off.
And I felt it, right where I'm supposed to -- where I'm sitting.
So no more messin' around -- when Vince says "squat" I'm squatting (and yelling).
