Zumba Anyone?

So, a couple weeks ago, MIL asked me if I'd be interested in doing a night exercise class of some sort with her. With my evening work schedule one of the only ones that would work was an Intro to Basic Zumba with Yoga/Pilates Fusion. What is Zumba do you ask? Latin Dancing. The instrutor explains if the first time you go through a song, then we just did the song again no instruction, we did 3 songs like that, and 1 with just instruction. By the end of February we'll learn 9-10 dances, and in a class period we'll just go from song to song to song, to re-instruction. Here's a video I found. <-Click on that link! But honestly, I was a little scared the first song, there was some kind of a crow, and our instructor would yell out "Kawkaw" (that is supposed to be a crow sound) and flap her arms like wings. I couldn't even look at MIL or else I'd lose it, but in the end it was a really fun class!

My thoughts, your heart gets a pumping, my sides and legs were hurting by the end of each song. And who doesn't like finding some new movements especially with their hips. I know the hubs liked the few moves I showed him when I got home.

So, I think if you have the chance, take a Zumba class, the time flies by, you have fun and get a great cardio workout!

I've heard of Zumba, that sounds like fun...I'll have to find a class and try it out (and hope I don't kill myself, hehe).

As far as the scrabble pendants, they are so fun to make. Just time consuming because there are many steps and waiting for things to dry, etc. I used mod podge on the paper and diamond glaze to top it off and make it shiny and to seal it. I couldn't find it in any of my local craft stores so I actually bought it from Etsy. Hope this helps...let me know if I can help anymore. And hope you and your fam are doing well :-)

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am fully recovered, thanks for asking!

I love, love, love Zumba! At first I was skeptical, but it's so much fun and a great workout!!

I got my shoes at a local store called the Trak Shak, but I'm sure you can find a locally own running store that does basically the same thing as far as fitting your foot. I highly recommend doing it; I've been wearing the wrong shoes for years!!
