i'm in it to win it!

something you maybe didn't know about me: i've never done step aerobics, taken a step class, or tried to step up on one of those steps except maybe in PE as a child. Oh, i've done aerobics, NIA, tried Zumba, done water aerobics and even took aerobics instructing class in college ... but i've never done 'step' ... until today!

am i coordinated? not so much ...
did i totally get lost in the middle? absolutely!
did i have a good workout (read: did i sweat a LOT?)? uh yeah.
will i be going back next week? you bet your gym shoes!
i asked the instructor ... "so since i didn't get it right the first time ... that means i have to come back?!" she said, "see you next week!!"

baby steps ... and one and two and one and two ...

and by the way ... it was really fun! the best part: i was front and center (the only spot left when i got there ... ) and blessed with the ability to laugh at myself!

Where are you going for this class? I took a Step Cardio Fusion class a couple of years ago and LOVED it. Definitely interested in trying it again!

Good for you, Emily!! I've done a little, but if they get too "dancey" on me I get all discombobulated. I hope you enjoy it next week!

I loved step when I used to do it. As you can see I have stopped, but it was always way fun. Not something I dreaded doing.
