I've decided that if you don't look goofy while you're doing Zumba, then you aren't ... Read more
Bustin' Moves and Burning Calories!
I love Zumba.
I thought I wouldn't. I thought I'd feel so dumb that I'd never go back.
I feel dumb, but in a fun way.
Seriously, if Zumba classes were 6 days a week, I'd go to all of them. If they were twice a day, I'd still go to... Read more

The Gym Used To Terrify Me, But Now It's Home
Last year it was a giant, big monster filled with meatheads and girls bouncing around in skimpy clothing. It was intimidating. It was scary. I'd show up and get my workout done, but I always tried to go unnoticed. I stayed away fro... Read more
