Feeling good

I went to Jazzercise last night, even though I tried to talk myself out of it. I arrived just in time to stand by the cute girl that always works her butt off. I was keeping up pretty good considering she is 21-years-old and I am not. It was when we reached our last cardio in the green zone that I started to feel weak in my heart. And fire in my thighs. I took it down to about 95 percent (okay 75 percent) so I wouldn’t feel like a total loser in front of cute college girl.

Afterwards, she approached me and said, “I love working out next to you. You make me push myself to work harder.”

Como say what?

That had me floating on cloud nine right out of the West University Community Center. I was craving pizza, but knew that it would be better to save money and go to the grocery store. I bought Hamburger Helper instead. Maybe not so healthy, but it will last me dinner, lunch and dinner again. When you do the math, that’s a $0.99 meal. Can’t beat it.

I gather a few other things and head to the checkout counter.

“May I see your ID please?”

For a minute it didn’t compute why the checkout girl would ask this. Do you have to show ID to use a debit card? Then I remembered…I was buying alcohol.

“ABSOLUTELY! Here you go!”

I floated right out of Randall’s and into my car wondering if it was the Jazzercise that makes people assume I am in my early 20s.

Of course, it could have been the Pi Phi t-shirt I had on.

Or the fact that I had just purchased a four-pack of Bartles and James Wild Berry wine coolers. Might as well have been Boone’s Farm…

No. It’s the Jazzercise.

I just wanted to say yay for Jazzercise at the West U Community Center!! I grew up just outside of West U and did about a year of Junior Jazzercise back in 6th grade there. At some point, our class “performed” at a massive exercise event to Toni Basil’s ‘Hey Mickey!’. Good times there, good times. 🙂

Love the posts!

I love the fact you wore your Pi Phi shirt! Sometimes in weak-I-didn’t-do-laundry-moment, I wear my Pi Phi shirts to the gym too. My personal fave is my old school Homecoming shirt with a Swingers theme that says “you’re so money.”

Got carded recently… at a Mom’s Club Social event! It was awesome! I am 31 year old mom so this doesn’t happen very often… (being out and/or being carded) I got all giddy. My mom pals were pretended to be (and really were!) jealous b/c I was the only one who did. Aaahhh, it was great. Just imagine if I started jazzercise!
