Okay, now where did my spice go????

Sunday, June 05, 2011

I broke out my Zumba dvds that I have had for a while but was too scared to try. I just had that feeling, you know, that I might be in over my head with it. I'm not sure why, but there you have it.



So I turned on the first dvd, and thankfully I saw there was a part to teach you how to do the moves. And a sweet faced girl ASSURED me I would have NO problems learning the moves.



Hmmmm...that probably should have been my first clue. But no, I blithely started it up. First part, no problem. Second beat, let's speed it up....huff huff well okay then....



Now she smiles at me and says lets spice it up! Use your spice!



Where the hell did my spice go? I know I had it once upon a time....long ago, in a galaxy far away....



I hope if I keep trying I can get my spice back! But I don't know......




I've done really well with my goals!

Week 1 - Wed 6/1 to Tues 6/7

1. 10 minutes of exercise a day, every day
Wed: 40 min
Thurs: 60 min
Fri: 31 min
Sat: 90 min
Sun: 60 min

2. 15 minutes of meditation every morning
Wed: done
Thurs: done
Fri: done
Sat - no, oops
Sun - no, oops (you would think on the weekend it would be easier!)

3. Find one way every day to take the long way or do it the hard way
Wed: Took the long way through the garage so I could walk up the stairs to the first floor before I got on the elevator
Thurs: Took those stairs again
Fri: Took the stairs again
Sat: Made multiple trips to fill bird feeders instead of bringing them all in at once
Sun: parked at the end of the row for Target

4. Let chaos reign!! Don't take life so serious!
Yes, chaos in my life every day! LOL

On Day #5 of my June streak!

    Zumba can be hard. When I first started I thought I would never make it through a 20 minute lesson now I am up to the 45 minute intermediate class. Which I can do without being out of breath but still sweat and work up my hear rate level nicely. You can do it! It will just take some time.

    Sorry, no extra spice here. Not sure I ever had any to begin with.

Great job with the goals. Keep it up!

    I have zumba on the wii. it teaches you but not the right way for me. you put the wii remote in the pouch you put around your waist. if it isn't in there it doesn't keep going..it just keeps repeating. if it is in there it goes through the whole movement in like 5 seconds. I don't use it anymore. ):

    Great blog, love the pics! I'm afraid to try Zumba because I am Little Miss UNcoordinated when it comes to anything related to dance. Or sports involving catching or throwing a ball for that matter...Good job giving it a shot, keep trying and maybe one day your spice will just magically reappear!

    Oh I love, Love, LOVE Zumba, but it kills my knees. I do it anyway, & ice them afterwords.

to get your spice back, try getting more sleep. Also eat a little piece of fruit an hour before exercising. You may need a little healthy carb boost.

    Do you think advertising in Lost and Found would find your Spice... if so, I think I should do it too! I lost my spice sometime ago and can't find it anywhere!!!

Sounds like you're doing pretty good without it... you are exercising AND meditating at least 3 days a week that is gold!!!

    emoticon that's why I want to try zumba AT HOME , thank you very much . I had problems with the tae bo bootcamp video. some people shouldn't speak so easy about easy . I don't even want to think about what could happen with me trying to dance in a small space surrounded by lots of girls. at my speed , force and lack of coordination probably something dangerous. zumba predator! I bet my friends in ER would be thrilled! but great blog , keep it up , maybe you'll find some chili or something emoticon
