Monday, February 02, 2015      6 comments

I'm starting a new challenge this month -- The Walkabout Challenge. This week we will be walking for 10 minutes each day. Because the wind is whipping, I'm just coming in from walking at Wal-Mart. I got a basket and pushed it up and down the ... Read more
Lazy Day

Needless to say - today has been extremely low key. We closed the club down last night. It was Latin night - just what Zumba instructors & students require. Some young man asked me to dance and I told him I hope he could keep up with someone ... Read more
Dancing all day (and night)

The Zumbathon went extremely well. We raise over $3000. I had a lot of support - friends from several gyms. I have to share this. In the middle of my second song I temporarily lost my mind and jumped off the stage and danced into the middle ... Read more
Cracked, yet abiding

My Zumba mentor invited me to hear her speak at her church this evening. The message was - Cracked, yet abiding. Even though were facing difficulties (jobs, family, finances) or are stressed, we should continue to do God's work. God pu... Read more
Sweeeeet Tea
Thursday, January 29, 2015      4 comments

The small change challenge was to read labels and pick one source of sneaky sugar in my diet to avoid for the day. I'm a southern girl and I love sweet tea. While I primarily drink unsweetened tea (with sweet n low), I still occasionally indul... Read more

Today's small change challenge was to sneak in some fitness during one of my everyday tasks today. At the end of the day I was dancing in my room. The custodian walked in to empty the trash and was rendered speechless. We both then busted ou... Read more
Bridging the Gap
Sunday, January 25, 2015      3 comments

The Bridges didn't go as well as I planned. After the 7th rep, I caught a cramp in my left quad. Oooooo painful. It took several minutes to get off the floor (boy it comically too) and a couple more before I could put weight on it! But all i... Read more
Losing Da Butt
Saturday, January 24, 2015      4 comments

Today's small change challenge reminds me of the Old School Song "Da Butt". There were a series of exercises to "firm" up the glutes. My plan is to the Bridge (yoga) in a few minutes. I lost 2 more pounds this week for a total of 9.5 si... Read more

I was so excited when I arrived home to find my order from Zumba. Twice I've ordered pants and had to return them because of the fit. Today they fit perfectly and I wore them to Zumba. I switched and conducted the 2nd half of Zumba today. I'... Read more

Usually I'm unable to exercise on Tuesdays because I teach piano lessons after school. And typically I don't sleep well on Tuesdays. I don't think I'm going to have any trouble falling asleep tonight. I went to Body Combat and tonight was... Read more
These shoes weren't made for walking

Today's blog will be brief (I need to finish grading my student's exams!) The small change challenge was to burn an extra 100 calories. From the extensive list, I decided to walk up and down the stairs for 11 minutes. Trying to keep a ste... Read more
