Don’t Zumba and Drive

by | Nov 23, 2011 | Blog | 0 comments

On Monday, I set off on the 2-hour drive to my rendezvous point in Newburgh.  I meet a colleague there and we make the trek down the Taconic or heaven forbid, over the Tappanzee to our offices in White Plains.  That 2-hour drive to Newburgh can be tedious and quite boring without good music.  I do have some fun with “Fredrick”, my husband’s car. It is a bit faster than my SUV and definitely more fun.

This time I thought rather than channel surf, I would bring my iPod.  I have a wide variety on that iPod from Frank Sinatra to LMFAO.  I have three Zumba playlists so what the heck…..

I cranked that radio up and those two hours flew by like the wind.  I was moving, crunching, salsa-ing and the easier single-single-double.  When I got home and plugged in my BodyBugg, it showed that in those 4 hours, I burned, no lie, 2140 calories and took 12,085 steps.  Do you beleive that?

I wonder what I would have done if I got pulled over?  If a Trooper followed me, head bobbing, arms moving and singing at the top of my lungs, would he have hauled out the breatholizer right there at 6:25 am? (Thank God I don’t drive stick)

Let me tell you, you can dance and drive……but use cruise control. It makes the salsa easier to do.

About Me

KarenHello and welcome.
I am often asked, “What is Pasta on the Floor?”
Pasta on the Floor is different for everyone. It is a recipe that tells a story and inspires them to try something new. For others, stories of family, joy, loss, and hope engage with them. This brings me a great deal of happiness. I do not take myself too seriously, so be forewarned the subject matter is open and truthful. In many ways, Pasta is a tale of life, and I think you will find familiarity and commonality as you scroll through these pages.
