Minnie...I'm totally giving you that CROWN! emoticon Gotta love it!

I'm going to give myself one too, since I did complete more Zumba this past week than I have been. Also, I'll begin teaching a class at a local Tae Kwon Do studio on Wed & Saturdays now....trying to drop 30 pounds again. Sheesh!

God, grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me.

face your stuff. don't stuff your face.

be so busy improving yourself that you have no time to find fault with others

And now, once again, It's Exercise Week!!! YAY!

So, ok, In keeping with our set schedule of 2 Intake Challenges, 1 Exercise Challenge & 1 Self-Improvement Challenge, this week falls on an Exercise Challenge. This is one of my favorite weeks. This year, we've already mastered the Butt Blaster Workout, Abdominal Crunch Workout, and a few other things that had us all panting & groaning but we know it's good for us!!! Right gang?

So, are you ready to take charge???? If so, here is your MC for the this week:

Pick an aerobic exercise, maybe one you haven't even tried before, and do that exercise for at least 30 minutes for 4 of the 7 days this MC is in effect. 5 out of 7 or the Golden Crown Award! emoticon

Read this article: tinyurl.com/39ugwz from SP to find out about both aerobic exercise & anaerobic exercise. See where you stand with moving toward the ideal of anaerobic exercise and try making it a daily or weekly routine.

For me, I've took up Zumba about 3 years ago and have even become a licensed Zumba Fitness Instructor due to this very Mini-Challenge!!! My plan for this coming week is to do Zumba 4 times. In fact, 2 years ago, my goal was to sign up to become an Instructor....I did it! Before that, on the last go around, I tried Jazzercise which I loved. So, do something fun! Get out of the exercise rut! Maybe some P90X? Exercise on a Ball? Power Walking at the mall? Wii? Walking the dog...really fast? Swimming? Cycle Class? (still haven't done that one) Yoga? Pilates?

What about you? Share your progress and comments in this Forum for the duration of the MC. I look forward to getting ideas and seeing how you are doing. Just remember, it must be something that gets your heart rate up and no, going to see the movie "Magic Mike" does not count! emoticon

Hugs ya'll,
L.
