Zumba Mega Mix 47

I’m so behind on ZIN releases right now. I still have songs from releases 4 months ago that I want to use, and I haven’t used a single song from the last ZIN yet! Sheesh! So when I saw MM47 in the mailbox today I was both excited, and a little overwhelmed. I need to get my Zumba act together stat. Anyone else finding themselves with a bit of a Zumba backlog at the moment?

Anyway, here are the new tunes for this month!

Life is Cool (Warm-up) – Zumba Fitness Original

Shenai {Radio Edt} (Electronic) – Mocham

ZIN 57 Preview

I love Lindsay Taylor. I really like Gina and Kass, I’m still sad I never got to meet Tanya, but Lindsay is my all-time favourite. I just love that girl. And ever since I saw her Instagram pictures from the shooting of ZIN 57 I’ve been impatiently awaiting it’s arrival. I still have to wait another month before it comes, but at least I have this preview to hold me over and get me excited all over again!

Squee!!!! It’s Lindsay!!!!

And because I’m so amped, I’ll share one of my favourite Zumba photos with you…

DSC01957It might be my favourite Zumba photo if I didn’t look radioactive with my shiny face and sweaty bangs, but this is what happens when you do Zumba for 3 hours!

For anyone who doesn’t understand our positions in the photo, we were doing “Pause” from the music video (which Lindsay is in), and had just come out at the time (which for some reason I cannot for the life of my track down at the moment #sadface).

Do As I Say, Not As I Do + A New Dance Fitness Video!

Happy Thursday Friends! I do have a new video to share with you, but first I want to talk about something…

Back in January I wrote this post about how I’d gained weight over Christmas and how I wasn’t upset about it. And I wasn’t. And I’m still not. However, I had thought I would have long since lost those few pounds, but I haven’t. Each time I see a photo of myself I’m reminded that I haven’t lost that weight, and it’s frustrating. I know on social media I often share with you my “treats” because I want you to know that it’s okay to enjoy a burger and fries or ice cream or whatever now and then, but don’t think for a second that it is indicative of how I normally eat. This past year especially since trying to fix my hormone imbalance naturally, and becoming a nutrition & weight-loss specialist I’ve probably eaten better healthier) than I have at any other time in my life. And yet compared to one year ago I am about 14 pounds heavier.

The logical part of me knows that at least some part of the 14 pounds is lean muscle mass. But I’d be lying to myself and to you if I said it was mostly muscle. The truth is realistically somewhere around 8-10 pounds of it is fat, and most of that is on my ass.

Sickie + Dance Fitness Video For You

Well, I’m a big old sickie today. I don’t know if it’s my IBS, or a bug but I am most certainly not feeling good. The bad news for me is I can’t afford to cancel my classes today so I have to keep plugging away. Working when you don’t feel well is bad enough, but when your work is exercise – that’s a whole other level of nastiness.

Anyway, enough of the glum talk. Last night I was heading out the door to teach my evening classes and I realized I had no videos planned – oops. So I fell back on a couple old routines to share with you this week, and then next week I’ll share the next two Body Sculpt videos.

Dance Fitness: Caramelo

I somehow managed to choreograph this routine in my head one day last week on my way to teach a class. It’s to Caramelo from Mega Mix 46. I choreographed it thinking it was a Cumbia, but then realized it was a Reggaeton but decided not to change my choreography, because well – I liked it.

This is another sort of middle of the road/lower intensity song, but only a few steps it is easy to learn and teach.


Side note – after watching this video I have decided these pants need to take a hike. #notflattering

If you give it a try let me know if you like it!

I’ll be back with another video on Thursday – I’ll be sharing a warm-up with you then!
