Kids Dance Fitness: The Party Starts Now

This week I’m sharing two more kids routines, I would classify these as Zumba Kids Jr, or if you’re not a Zumba instructor, they would be appropriate for kids aged 7 and under. The first one is to a Club Penguin song called “The Part Starts Now” and I have an old (terribly fuzzy) video of this routine already on my YouTube Channel, but the quality is just awful so I figured I’d re-record it.

Monday’s Odds and Ends

Wow. I almost wrote happy hump day. Where is my brain!? Happy MONDAY! I hope that the start of the week is treating you well so far!

I’m one of those annoying people who doesn’t mind Mondays, but mostly because I don’t really have to start work until after lunch on Mondays so I get to ease into the week. I won’t lie, it’s delightful. ;)

Today I have a bunch of odds and end I wanted to share with you so today’s post is pretty much a mish mash (which auto correct changed to fish mash, hahaha) of a bunch of different stuff.

Thank You!

I want to send out a heart felt thank you to everyone who commented here or on social media, and to those who sent me emails and private messages about my post from last Tuesday. Being a “public figure” you’re expected to only present the best side of yourself, but once in a while I think it’s important to show people what is really going on behind the curtain so to speak, and that’s exactly what that post was. I’m still in a bit of a funk, but do feel better than I did Tuesday, largely thanks to you all. So again, thank you!

I even got flowers and mini eggs out of it! <3 <3 <3

7 Weeks To Go

Ay yi yi (at least that’s how Google told me to spell it).

7 weeks until the Bluenose Half. That’s a scary thought. Mostly since we still have 5 feet of snow outside and so far have had very little “spring-like” weather.

I hate running on the treadmill. Like really, really hate it. I find it incredibly difficult and run a good 2 miles/hour slower on the treadmill than I would outside, but all of my runs so far have been on it. There have been a few days where I considered running outside, including today, but I decided that it was still too cool for my lung to work properly. I find it causes me more difficulty if I run in the cold, versus running when it’s warm, and I didn’t want to jeopardize that. I really hope we move into the + temperatures and stay there soon.

As I sat here thinking about how quickly the Bluenose is coming up, I started to worry that I was going to be less trained this year, than I was last. And that would be tragic, since I was sure this would be the first time I would get to the start line properly trained for once.

The {Training} Week That Wasn’t

Happy snowy Monday to all my fellow Nova Scotians. It only stands to reason that most of last week it was beautiful outside, and I was sick. Then I felt better and we got a blizzard. #unfortunateluck

I’m going to have to just giv’er if I have any hope of a PR this year at the Bluenose!

Which is might already explain the name of this post. This past week I had the best intentions, but those intentions were crushed when I woke up sick Tuesday morning. It wasn’t until Friday that I really started to feel better, and in the end I ended up not getting a single run in.

Could I have run on the weekend? Certainly. On the treadmill. But I had really had my heart set on running outside, and when that dream was taken away I just didn’t have the heart to hit the treadmill.

Excuses, excuses. I know.

Update: Did I #GetOutAndGo in February?

You may remember as a part of Heart Month, I partnered with Staples to #GetOutAndGo and promoted getting outside of your comfort zone to move your body and get your heart pumping.

As part of the campaign I made two goals. One was to practise yoga everyday during the month of February, and the second was to get outside and move 8 times during the month.

Now I’m back to check in and let you know how I made out with my goals!
