My Sunday was great. I logged in 60 minutes of exercise. I forced my self to do it. Once I started I was glad i did it. I was just being lazy. I could have done more, but I had to rest before getting ready to go to work emoticon

Thanks for the song title. I will have to listen to it soon. I have to baby my back right now. I moved wrong and I got a little twinge, so I am a little sore right now. I guess I will take this weekend off and start all over again on Monday. Have a great weekend!

Susie, I think I have exercise ADD. I can never focus on just one thing. I have always jumped to different things. I think I just get bored, so to keep me interested I just do different things. I fell in love with Zumba, but now I am in love with my new kinect game: UFC personal trainer. I is a martial arts/kickboxing game.

Can you give me the name of that song that works the abs? I do Zumba with kinect too.

Thanks,
Liz

L1ZB3TH354, I actually have a song in my Zumba routine that targets abs. :) And it always makes the new person sore. I do like trying new things, though. :) Different workouts and such. I rarely have time for other workouts, though. I'm always working on a new song to add to my Zumba routine. :)

HARTINGL52, I love Zumba, too. :)

Hope everyone is doing well. I am not Zumba-ing everyday, like I wanted to. I am doing Jillian Michaels No More Trouble Zones dvd right now. I am trying to target my abs and get some strength training in. I am no longer getting sore abs, so that is good. I think I will try and Zumba every other day, but we will see. Anyway, have a great Sunday!

Nice to meet you, L1ZB3TH354. I think no matter what the age, it can catch up to you. But I don't do as well with little sleep as I did when I was 19, that's for sure! emoticon

Feeling great as my favorite Zumba instructor is back in gear and teaching a class tonight!

Tomorrow I get to go to civilization for a few days...I live in a very isolated place. We don't even have a Target! So I get to shop a bit, see friends, eat Vietnamese and Peruvian food and generally enjoy myself.

Really excited that next week there will be world-class Cuban (casino) salsa teachers giving workshops in my state...plus a huge party afterward...and I get to go! That's like 14 straight hours of REAL dancing!

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

Hi Susie ,
I can relate with the work schedule; I work at night too. I have been doing it for 11 years and I am used to it. Being older (58) it sometimes catches up with me. Sometimes I take a whole week off. Anyway, have a great day.

I work nights, so it's kind of the end of my day. I didn't sleep well, so I only got about 25 minutes of exercise. I did jog to pick my son up from school (.6 miles), and walked to work (.69 miles).

Better day today, maybe. :)

Hi everyone!! It's a hot chocolate cafe morning for me! A little chilly here, so I'm adding a huge indoor real wood stone fireplace to our cafe building, with lots of room for couches, and comfy fireside chairs, low tables for our coffee and the genuine warmth and crackling from the fireplace...THERE now!! How is all our Zumba group??
emoticon

I have missed two days ~ both kind of 'off' days for me ~ but feeling better today. Hope to get in 20 Zumba minutes on my at home DVD ~

Sun is shining ~ Joy to your day! and energy with courage to all your goals today!! Gonna sit here by this great virtual fire and finish my awesome virtual cocoa!!!

Nice thread PJ! Zumba has really enriched my life :) I started in March and loved it so much that I got my license in July. I've lost 60 pounds since then (with WW as well), not to mention all the new friends I've made! Zumba love!!

I had a good time Zumba-ing last night. Each time I do it I feel stronger. No soreness at all. I simply love this exercise. I hope to increase my exercise to one hour. Hope you are having a great day. I drink diet coke, but I am phasing/cutting that down.

My day is probably a little different than yours. I work at night. Been doing it for 11 years now, so it is my lifestyle now. I don't mind it too much. It gets in the way when family visits, but they understand. I wake up around 3:30 PM. I usually start getting ready to workout about 7 PM, after my husband goes and takes a nap.....he works with me too. So I don't usually get to post my exercise for the day until 9ish. We are getting ready to go get a Subway sandwich and some soup right now. I am feeling pretty good because my knee is allowing me to Zumba. I love Zumba so much. I don't care what I look like, I just love doing it. And I also love the amount of calories I am burning in such a short time! Catch you later.........Lizbeth

Hi there, Team!!

I wanted to start a thread that we could all relate to on a daily basis so we could hang out a little! Pull up a chair, grab your favorite coffee/tea/cider/cocoa/whatever! this lovely Fall season, and chat for a minute or two. How has Zumba brightened your life? Ups and downs? What makes you smile? Need some encouraging words? Tell us! Have some encouraging words to share? Share them!!
emoticon emoticon emoticon

When the sun is shining ~ as it always is by this cafe!! ~ we can sit on the lovely outdoor porch that is surrounded by beautiful trees and flowering plant containers ~ Adirondacks, a group of rocking chairs, a 4 seated swinging bench, some high coffee tables with matching high chairs, and just regular wrought iron tables with lovely cushions on the chairs. Take your pick!!! Lots of room for everyone1 Join us!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

WELCOME EVERYONE!!
