yellow hot chili peppers, zumba and bicycles
Being of Mexican heritage I love anything and everything hot. My favorite pickled chilies are locally grown and bottled in California. They are tangy and hot. I usually have 3 -5 of them with tacos or tostadas.
What do chilies have to do with Zumba? It's another form of salsa:) My sister introduced me to the salsa-based workout. It's alot of fun dancing and laughing at myself while I try to do some of the hip-hop and latin dance moves.
Which leads me to the bicycle ride my husband and I took last Sunday. We were riding side by side and exploring a new area. We couldn't go straight as it was a T-zone. With my husband on my right side, I looked left to make sure no cars were coming. When I looked right, my husband was looking right as well. We were in the middle of deciding against the neighborhood, so I took it as a sign that we going to the bike trail. I turned right and realized too late that he was not turning right. My bike crashed into his and locked up. I couldn't get off the bike or control my own. Next, I'm flying in the air and thinking "Roll, Juana, Roll!" I did roll but that was cut short by my body slapping the pavement. No broken bones or even bruises for either of us, but I pulled a leg muscle and threw my back out, so there was no Zumba or gym for a week.
Good news is after a week of rest, the muscles repaired and I got zumba in on Friday.
Hope everyone is having a good shadow shot weekend. Visit HeyHarriet's blog to join the fun.
