OK so I HATE gimmicky stuff people are always trying to sell me. YES I used to have a Thighmaster ( I think i was about 14). I even had that one diet plan with the aromatherapy pen that was supposed to curb your appetite (rolls eyes). But I learned early in life not to jump on the bandwagon or buy everything that advertises itself as the Holy Grail. I only want to use what works and what can fit into my lifestyle (and my tiny home). So one day when I was given the opportunity to try Zumba (yes yes, hot Latin dance class,packed classes, sold out workshops all over the nation blah blah blah...) I couldn't pass that up. And you know what? I LOVE IT!
I really needed to reinvigorate my exercise program and the Zumba DVD's gave me the push I needed. So far staying OP and Zumba about 45 min to 1 hour a day (way early in the morning when the kids and DH are still sleeping) have changed my whole outlook on what I CAN accomplish in a busy day. I have so much more energy, I make myself get in bed earlier just so I can get up and have my morning dance party! I just have to keep moving.
