As soon as I heard the Wreck It Ralph song, I knew I had to use it for Zumba Kids Jr. It is upbeat, fun and best of all – appeals to both boys and girls.
Things happen when people are storm stayed. Things like this:
Really, what was I expected to do? I had a mini donut pan just sitting there wishing to be used. How could I deny it?
The finished product is pretty tasty, though not really as dense as I would like to make it really “donut-like”, and next time I think I might leave the baking soda out to see if that makes them more dense.
This week I’m sharing a couple of the kids routines I’ve been using the past year or so. For the older kids I usually use “watered down” versions of my regular Zumba routines, but for the younger kids I like using songs from recent movies as they usually recognize them and get more excited about learning them that way.
This is a routine to the song “Rio Rio” from Rio 2, and it’s a great routine for kids aged 3-7 or so, and a great way to burn off a bit of energy if you are still snowed in – enjoy!
Get ready to celebrate! This coming Thursday (February 19th) is Chinese New Year, and this year is the Year Of The Goat.
If you are like me and live in an area that doesn’t have Chinese New Year celebrations, that doesn’t mean you can’t invite a few friends over and have your own party, complete with fake-out take-out!
This time of year I desperately envy those of you who don’t have to deal with winter. And more specifically snow, snow, and more snow. We were lucky here in Nova Scotia this year, as winter didn’t really seem to start until the end of January. But since then we’ve had approximately 500 snow storms (that might be a slight exaggeration) with promises of about 50 cm more (that is not an exaggeration) coming just this weekend alone.
With all that snow, ice, and cold air it can be horribly difficult to get or stay motivated to do any type of exercise. Especially if your fitness regime depends on you being able to make it to fitness classes or the gym. Snow storms and winter weather are undoubtably cramping your workout style.
So how do you stay motivated in the winter? Here are my favourite tips to keep you going when the snow is flying!
