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.
