Zumba'ing My Booty Off

Saturday, February 16, 2013

I am down a total of 4 lbs since I first won the XBox Kinect and started doing Zumba a month ago. I have to say that I'm definitely loving it and can't get enough of it. I have now done two days this week at 60 minutes of dancing. I purchased the right shoes now and am no longer falling over my own two feet when I try to twist and turn.

With that said, I did learn that I have arthritis in my lower back and my doctor thinks I'm way too young to have this type of diagnosis. So, what was her answer to keeping the arthritis from winning? Keep active and exercising. Apparently, I'm doing the right thing.

I absolutely LOVE Zumba, and was frustrated when I couldn't get to classes for lack of transport in the winter, so I bought the Exhilarate set, and do it every day. Its so much fun!! And for sure you need the right shoes, its very hard on the knees if you can't glide and pivot.
Sorry for your diagnosis :( I too am having issues in my back with my RA, but then I have had the disease since age 6 and a half and its had a long time to get into everything. I have had some 35 surgeries (five of which are joint replacements), but my love of exercise keeps me moving and grooving.
Never give up and never give in!
