I want to start a new challenge! JMAHNKEN you motivated me! You've been gettin' some movement in for at least 10 minutes, and I think that's a great challenge! If I could get at least 10 minutes a day in I'd be well on my way back to 40-60 minutes a day! Anyone is free to join the 10 minute movement challenge!!!

Congrats on the challenge! I had a really low key Easter too. I have been doing more stretching type exercises that my drs gave me to do and yoga, than dancing. I have a follow up appt Wed. I still have some discomfort in my side and back, but I think all the stretching exercises are helping.

All my best to you all always

Hope you had a good Easter!! Mine was pretty low key but nice! Our church has been playing Pharrell's "Happy" during our praise service and we dance and have a good time! I actually did Zumba World Party today and I liked it a lot better! I'm getting used to the actual people and not the gamey looking characters like I'm used to! I've only missed two days of my 90 day challenge so far! Keep on dancing lady!!

I didn't do zumba today, but I played Pharrell Williams 24 Hr video "Happy" again today and that song just makes me want to get up and dance to it. So I did dance to it for a few mins of the video and saw several people in the video singing and dancing. And I did better with it today, but I also did a bunch of stretching and yoga before that too.


I hope you are feeling better really soon! All my best to you all always, and Happy Easter too.

Thanks! I hadn't tried to do it for a while and since I had one treatment on my spine I was feeling a lot better than before. So I wanted to check it out and see if I would still feel any issues with it and note exactly where and what I was feeling so I can tell the my pt where I am still having issues. It sounds like I am going to be going back to pt pretty soon, maybe a week or so.

Congrats! I just tried to do 10 mins the other day, but still having issues with the back and side muscles with it. Hopefully soon I will get back into it. As it is so much fun.

MISSCURVY24, be careful of your injury. I some how hurt my back and side this summer with all the new stuff I was doing and just kept re-irritating it. My back seems better now, but my obliques just keep getting irritated from every little thing I do. So I am still on drs orders not to do Zumba again just yet. But as soon as I get the okay, I will be back at it as it is so fun. All my best to you all always.

Hey MISSCURVY!! I have been avoiding the scale, but I'll weigh myself at some point! I'm down about two dress sizes! Really exited about that! Through this 71 day challenge I've missed about 10 days. I going to keep going and shoot to miss as few days as possible!

As much as you have been dancing, I KNOW you have lost lots of inches Ringstwo! You have been putting in the work, and will soon be able to see the rewards. emoticon emoticon emoticon


You are good to not get on a scale during the entire 71 days...I am addicted to weighing myself! Lol I know that the scale is not all that matters, but mentally I still like to see that number going down each week. emoticon

My jeans are definitely a lot looser since starting the 71 day challenge!

emoticon

But, I'm not going to weigh myself or remeasure until after the 71 days is over! I'm hoping to get back down to a size 10....maybe an 8! Not too concerned with the weight as much as the inches!

Keep dancin' ladies!!

I am also looking forward to the release of the Wii World Party in October! This past week I got Zumba Fitness Core and I will definitely need to rotate that in with Zumba Fitness 2. I started doing Zumba again on June 10th this year and I've been doing it for at least 30 minutes a day 5 days a week. It sure is tough some days but at least its fun!

I would love to join this challenge. The only thing I know for a fact I will not be able to get Zumba in 71 days in a row. I'm not down playing myself but at this time I'm currently in nursing school and working full time. I'm struggling now to get the 3 days in that I do. My studies come first but I'm keeping my motivation. I have dogs so I do get some exercise when I walk them everyday. So I'm joining the challenge and do my best to do as much Zumba as I can. emoticon

MISSCURVY24 I have been on Spark almost since the beginning! I started here on Spark, lost a lot of weight, became a certified personal trainer, then health coach now Fitness Instructor.

For me, learning the routines are not hard, but they take awhile for me because I am so busy with everything else I don't have time to learn much new. My new goal is to try to learn one new routine every week. I tried giving them 4 new ones at a time and I freaked out.

Also, how do you memorize all of the different dance routines? Becoming a certified zumba instructor has been swirling in the back of my mind for awhile now, but always worry about having to memorize new dance routines.

Just wanted to take a moment to welcome you to the team KSTYLEFITNESS! Are you new to Sparkpeople as well? I think its very cool that you're also a Zumba instructor - I love dancing and Zumba because of the music, its very motivating to me.

I've been licensed for over a year. I started just subbing for my friend, then I got my own class this January. I also teach Turbo Kick and certified to teach Hip Hop Hustle, but don't have a class right now.

Just go for it! I love being in front of that class leading others. I am not even the best dancer, it's just more about your attitude. My students think I am intense compared to many. We do all fast paced songs and I give no breaks!

How long have you been teaching?! I've been saying since last year that I want to get certified but I keep chickening out!!! We have maybe 2 or 3 places in town where you can go to a class regularly, so I know if I get certified there would be a great chance to actually teach!! But I guess I'm being a wimp! emoticon

If I can count my classes I teach 2 days a week, I'm in! On those days I don't do much other Zumba. So in that case, yesterday was day 1 for me because I taught a class. Tonight I will play the Wii.

I just have the original Zumba and Zumba 2 on Wii. I might go out and find the Zumba Core game. I heard that was intense.

Great MISSCURVY!!!

I'm just getting into day 3!!! I'm using my Zumba Fitness Core game one day then Zumba Fitness 2 the next!! I think I'm just going to keep alternating them to keep the workouts fresh!! Zumba is pretty much the only way I can get workouts in, otherwise I'm pretty bored! Love it!!!

Thanks for joining in....it's nice to not have to do it on my own emoticon
Take it easy on the muscle...get back slowly!!! Don't do too much too soon!

I would love to join in on this challenge - I started exercising again in April by playing Dance Central 3 regularly. Now that those routines have gotten easier, I'm ready to move on to Zumba, which is a faster pace than most of the songs on Dance Central.

Somehow I managed to pull a muscle Friday night playing Zumba, so I took yesterday and today off. I'm hoping that tomorrow it feels better, so that I can get back to it!
