I'm back!!!

Sorry friends I have not updated my blog in a couple months, but I'm baaaaaack!!! So many changes in the last two months I can't wait to share. My favorite was my decision to dive in to the unknown and become a Hot Hula Fitness instructor! The bottom line is I LOVE to dance and I want to learn and do it all. I really do believe in one way, shape or form I will dance the rest of my life.

I had never taken a Hot Hula class or had experience in polynesian dance before
attending an instructor training, I was scared out of my mind. It was amazing! I feel so blessed to have found another way to exercise my body and feed my soul. Zumba changed my life and Hot Hula Fitness, I suspect will fine tune the change. Don't be afraid to step into the unknown, it may be one of the many things you where born to do!

I Want to Wear Flip Flops!

Spring is so difficult in Utah. Two weeks ago I was so excited to wear my new sassy wedge sandals, it was wonderful! I even went out and bought my first flip flops of season and thought I would be wearing them the next day........not the case. It has been raining and snowing everyday since! Spring has not sprung in Utah, Blah! Anyway, this is the first year in maybe at least 12 years I am excited for shorts, short sleeves, tank tops, sundresses! It really is a reward for hard work. With only 2 1/2 months to summer I want to encourage all my students to keep going and make this summer one that is not dictated by what you may have to wear to feel comfortable! Zumba, Zumba, Zumba!!!

I'm so excited to add more Zumbatomic to my schedule. Starting Saturday, April 9th at 9am, Elevated Fitness. We are doing a 2 for 1 in the month of April. Additional class times will be updated this week! I love doing Zumba with the kids. Its so much cheaper than dance class and they learn so many different types of dance, not mention it's exercise in disguise.

Is it True? Have I Possibly Broke Through?

I have been on a Plateau with my weight loss for six weeks, that was until this week, Yeah!!!!! Ready for the secret? I changed on thing. When I drink my protein shake. A couple of weeks ago I had a student share with me the struggles she was having with a plateau until she saw the recommendation on Dr. Oz. She used to drink her protein in the late afternoon before she worked out, the same time I would drink mine. She now drinks it very first thing in the morning and it worked! Her plateau is broken. This last week I decided to give it a try. I made sure I had my blender and ingredients ready the night before so it was easy. I'm happy to report a three pound weight loss!!! I'm not sure why it works, but it was a way to trick my body for the time being. Dare to share! Thank you Kathy!

Mama's Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Obese!

I had 50 kid's in my Zumbatomic (kids Zumba) class yesterday and it was so exciting! Their little faces said it all, pure fun! These boys and girls were not concerned about what they looked like, how many calories they where burning, or if there heart rate was in its target range. They just wanted to dance! All they know at this point is their body is meant to jump, wiggle, skip, run, hop, turn.....MOVE. Why do we squash that? At what point does sit down and be quiet trump everything else. I am so guilty of constantly asking my son to calm down. Yes, they need to learn self control, but they also need to know it's okay to move and it's fun!

No one means to help their child on a path to obesity, but we do map it out for them when we are not the example. I have already started paving the road for my daughter because she has seen her parents give every reason not to move and indulge in what ever makes you feel content for that moment. My hopes are that she will now see it is never too late to change your mind.

Childhood obesity is an epidemic that we can change and control. My goal is to dig up any path I may have laid for my children and REROUTE!
