Bikram Zumba - (noun) a cross between Bikram Yoga and Zumba Fitness. Latin-based aerobics in a room of sweltering temperature.
Sounds dangerous, yes? Maybe that's why it's not an actual fitness class. But I'm still saying we did it after yesterday's Pre-Oscar Black-Light Zumba Class.
I have to admit that I wasn't feeling the best as we headed to this event - blame it on a successful game night on Saturday that kept me up far past my normal bedtime and may have included a tad more adult beverage consumption than normal! (Which led to another impromptu dance party and sing-along in Jessica's living room... I love my friends!)
By the third song, the mirrors on the walls were starting to fog. This is a good thing for my brain because I can't stand watching myself workout. In fact, I wish to take this opportunity to apologize to all my Zumba friends who are subjected to that sight time after time (and love me anyway, God bless them!).
To say we were sweaty would be the biggest understatement of the year! I mean, I'm normally a sweaty beast when I workout, but this took it to a whole new level. I felt like I took a shower with my clothes on. I swear, even my ankles were sweating, and I didn't know that was possible!
I will say, though, that all that sweating really must have rid my body of all those toxins because I felt immensely better after 90 minutes of pouring sweat from every orifice in my body. And I would totally do it again! (Especially if we can go out for Mexican after... mmmmm guacamole!)
