In my never ending search for ways to burn calories in ways that don't feel like working out, I decided to check out one of my mother's old favorites. Jazzercise.
That's right. I did Jazzercise. And I didn't even have to use a time machine.
My friend Jennifer's mother is aaaaaaamazing. She is such a sweet woman and is always helping me in my fat-loss journey. Regardless, she invited me to ride with her to jazzercise at 6am on Monday. That's right. 6 am. If you know me AT ALL you know that I am conscious for one 6:00 a day, and only one. So I got up at 5:30 and rode over to my friend's house. Once I got there we jetted across town to the studio. After signing in the sweating began.
Now don't get all pius thinking that just beucase I am fat, I was sweating and you and your size 2 tush would do anything else. No no no. This was a great class! Most of the music is actually on my running play list. I was so surprised!
At the end of the club-like dance session (minus male stares and shots of sugary liquor) there was a session of weight lifting. This is what separated the women from the senior citizens. I'm lying. I used the same weights as the 75 year old in the corner. It was 6:00am! Leave me alone.
Regardless, it was a fun and a was calorie burn. I would recommend it for all ages and physical fitness levels. The only thing I don't recommend is going at 6:00 in the morning. In fact the only thing I recommend at 6 am involves rapid eye movement, snoring, drooling and accidental flatulation.
