I'm sorry. I'd be lost without my zumba family. I hope you can find another one soon.

Checking in. I miss my old Zumba families. I kind of lost motivation when my Zumba Family broke up =( (our instructor moved and everyone kinda went their own way)

One of my favorite Zumba instructors moved away. That stinks!

I have Zumba Fitness for the Wii (Join the Party). emoticon I set my workout schedule for 5 days a week, alternating between 20 & 45 minutes. My daughter likes to do it with me and she is quite good at it too. emoticon It definitely helps me break a sweat and get my heart rate up. emoticon I have lost 30 lbs, most of it with the help of Zumba and dieting. It's the most fun workout I have ever seen or tried. emoticon

I am heading to Akumal, Mexico next week. The Zumba classes are taught in the ocean. I will layer on the sunscreen, wear water sandals, and my rash guard for snorkeling, and see if it is fun. I can't imagine how the legs will work in the ocean....but I will let you know when I return. The instructor ....cute and energetic....stands on the pier above the class. Last trip I only took pics, but this time I am participating in the class. I am also swimming with the dolphins and visiting a turtle beach...where the baby turtles hatch and go down to the ocean. Zumba absolutely rocks as an exercise. It is a daily experience for me. emoticon

I have been off the Zumba wagon because I have been exploring a variety of workout videos. I have a question about which do y'all prefer- Zumba or Aqua Zumba- for those who have tried both. I saw that it was offered at the ARC, which I have a membership too. Maybe I will spy on the participants one day. :) Anyway, I hope everyone is having a great day. While I didn't get Zumba in today, I got Insanity in today. I can't handle too much of it, so I mix it up with Zumba and Rockin Body. :)

For Christmas I purchased the Zumba Fitness DVDs with toning sticks. It is a great program, but nothing like taking Zumba classes live. I have only attended two so far, but after today, New Year's Day, I will be taking six classes a week with Sunday off. I am adding to this cardio (60 minutes), kettlebells, and of course weight training 3X a week. 2013 is going to be a rocking year. I am also 461 days sober, down 56 pounds with 43 to go for a total of 109 pounds removed! . I can do it. I just really feel alive and motivated with Zumba. I speak, read, and write Spanish fluently. I understand all the words of the great songs. AND I just love Latin music and dancing! Caramba! LOL! I even ordered multi-colored Zumba dance shoes so that I can move on the gym floor without my sneakers sticking and holding me back. WooHoo! Look out 2013! JUST DANCE! emoticon

I took a Land Zumba class with my usual Aqua Zumba instructor today. Oh my gosh she is so good. Most fun I have had at Zumba to date. I have a feeling my legs will feel it in the morning though. :)

I got in my 5 Zumbas a week this week. Woot!

Congratulations, Grandmother! :) Very cool! :)

Yes, I prefer a real class, too. When I travelled to Houston, Texas to visit relatives, I looked up a local Zumba class there. LOL. I do like trying new classes! :)

I went to the beach last week. Now I'm in NC waitng for the birth of a grandchild.

Usually I work out and do Zumba at a gym, but since I'm not home, I did Zumba and Just Dance on the Wii today. It was pretty good, but I definitely prefer doing it in class with other people!

I haven't read the book, nor do I truly follow a vegan diet. Though I jokingly refer to myself as a meat-eating vegan (not meaning to offend anyone) because I'm not big on dairy products. I love my meat, not that I eat it every day, and I do eat yogurt and drink some milk. Oh, and ice cream is awesome! But that's practically it for dairy. I like fresh fruits and veggies and nuts. And my other issue is that I don't read labels on processed foods to see what's in them. And I consider myself quite healthy, fit, and happy.

Technically Convention starts on 8/14, but I arrive the day before! So Excited :)

I just finished the first Eat Clean Diet book! Eating 100% clean is hard for me though. Grew up on over processed junk and have a hard time getting away from it! On the LiveFit trainer I am eating CLEANER lol. The detox is the hardest to get through, but after that I saw some of my skin clear up and felt so much better for what I was putting into my body! Good luck to you as well, not sure I could ever go vegan. Definitely a meat eater!

I just thought I would start a board that we could all just talk about anything on, not just zumba (as much as we all love it! lol).

So if anyone wants to share anything, other programs, great days, ect. Jump on and share!

I will start with saying that I fell of my wagon for a bit and am now getting back on. Starting over again with the LiveFit trainer. I actually hope this time I can push through it for a whole 12 weeks. I will miss the cardio for the first month though. Can't wait to pick up the zumba again in another 3 and a half weeks!
