It's official-- my Zumba Gold class will start on March 12! I'm really nervous, but I guess its time to step out and see what I'm made of. I'm used to "regular" Zumba as a student and a teacher. Zumba Gold is suited for beginners and peop... Read more

The ladies in my Zumba class are so much fun. Even though we work in the same building, I don't have a lot of interactions with them. I guess you really get to know someone when you work out! I ordered hip skirts for them and they were (a... Read more

Now ya'll know I exercise everyday. But today my body is hurting! It's the good ache; knowing that you gave all during your workout. That cardio kickboxing is no joke. I've done Body Combat and this was a much more intensive workout! Read more

I'm trying to get ready to go to the gym in the morning. It's been a while (Spring 2014) since I've been to the gym BEFORE work. Hopefully I've packed everything in the car - clothes, lunch and backpack - since I won't have time to come home b... Read more

This snow has got to go! I ate off plan today, not because I was particularly hungry; it was pure BOREDOM! I had 2 bags of popcorn and a Stouffer's Macaroni and Cheese. On the positive, I did go to the gym this morning and my laundry is ... Read more

So another snow day! We received between 6-8 inches and bless God for my neighbor who cleaned my sidewalk. Around noon I cleaned the snow off the car and out of my parking space. That was about the most useful thing I did today. (Oh I did emp... Read more
