Zumba Addiction

I have a new addiction. One that I don't think I'll be able to shake. Well, technically that's not true - this addiction involves a ton of shaking!


Last week, I was feeling pretty down. I'm not sure what was going on, but I was having a difficult time motivating myself to get much done. I was definitely not feeling like myself, especially because I couldn't even motivate myself to get in my daily exercise. I had heard so many amazing things about Zumba - but to be honest, there is no way I will put myself in a group class. You are looking at the girl who has zero rhythm and would literally look like a monkey jumping around the room. No thank you!

I discovered that Zumba Fitness had released a game for the Wii that has gotten phenomenal reviews. I decided to rush out to the store and purchase it. I can honestly say that it has been my best purchase so far in 2011! I can't even begin to describe how much fun this is and such a fantastic workout. You don't even feel like you're exercising. I did the 45 minute Intermediate workout yesterday and literally felt like only ten minutes passed. It is wonderful.

The best part? Jackson does Zumba with me every single day. There is nothing more adorable than watching my five year old little man dancing along with me. Especially the belly dancing. Seriously, I need to pull out my video camera so I can always remember!


  1. Awesome! I've heard great things about Zumba. I'll have to try it once I have the baby. So cute that your son dances with you!

  2. Glad you like Zumba! It is a lot of fun :O)
