Zumba-ing & Lovepack from Sarah!!

Some of you who read my blog posts might know that I'm into anything that is health-related, be it health food, fitness, organic foods, yoga, pilates..bla bla... well, I found an interesting exercise a couple of weeks ago...it's called ZUMBA dance workout...

What I love about this exercise is that it involves dancing, and since I love dancing, this suits me very well. The dance steps are Latin, Reggae, and a bit of hip hop. I have only been using it for 1 week, and have only done the basic and express work out, so far I'm loving it!! :D XD can't wait for my next dance. I guess the best part is it tricks me into working out lolz. You know how it feels when you're trying to drag yourself out to the gym, all the times it takes to prepare the bags, the walks/drive to the place, and so on... with Zumba, I can do it alone at home, or together with friends (planning to) lolz

Anyway, if you enjoy dancing, I would recommend you this workout series, as it's fun and it teaches you the basic steps so you don't have to quality for "dancing with the stars" to do ZUMBA. I will do a review after 1-2 months doing this exercises.

And a couple of days ago, I receive a lovepack from Sarah, one of my fave bloggers (she's having a very fun contest, so check her blog out and join!)!! She can read my mind so the box is full of pink stuff!!! Thanks so much Sarah!! I love everything!!! well, the hubby loves the chocolate since it's the first thing that he took when the package arrives (hence the absence from the pic)


Aren't they all pretty!!??!! I got another mascara (just when I'm in the need of a backup), a super duper nice (look-wise and usage-wise) pen, cute bows, a nail polish, a lipgloss, a bubble bath, and a tube of hand balm. Thanks so much again Sarah! :D love yaaaa.. X3

Take care everyone & have a nice weekend! :)

That's a great workout idea. You are right about regular workouts--they seem very heavy on the "work" part, while the dancing sounds fun.

I think I had the post-snowstorm, winter blues last week...so I wasn't online much. But now I'm back to pester people! LOL

Hope you have a wonderful week.

all the gym here I think has zumba workouts....now I'm curious about it...and that is a cute love pack....so much pink...:D

.maitai said...

looks like fun! They have Zumba at my university but I've never tried it before.

Yeah, I thought The Lightning Thief book was definitely better than the movie. There were alot of books like that I liked better than their movie versions, but I think there were a few movies that I was satisfied with. :)

Awww what a nice package. I'm into health and fitness too. I've been in and out of the gym. I guess i get bored easily. Zumba sounds interesting. I'll look into that and hopefully dance to the beat. =)

Kym said...

i'd probably REALLY enjoy that kinda workout!!! i usually get bored when im just running or doing something over and over again. haha!

Pop Champagne said...

nice~ I love dancing too. Lately I've been having more and more issues dragging myself to the gym, I motivate myself by looking up victoria's secret websites at their supermodels HAHA! it's working so far!

Hi! I'm Grace said...

Our church is hosting Zumba, too, on every Monday and Friday. I can get to join, because fortunately, I am off from work during that time. I enjoyed it very much. Makes me feel more mobile.

Usually I think of being in shock as a bad thing, but it was helpful in that situation! I didn't mean to quit working in the bad neighborhood. But when I left for work on the 3rd night, my car choked, sputtered and stopped running as I backed out of my driveway. I had to push the car back into my parking spot. Maybe it was my guardian angel watching out for me--without the car I had no way to get there. That put an end to my temporary assignment. Two weeks later I had the money to fix the car and everything was back to normal.

I hope you've gotten some relief from the heat! =)

Love, Sweetcheeks said...

Aww! What a cute love package you received!
Zumba? It sounds interesting! I haven't heard of it but I agree - dancing is a great way to work out the bod :)

Soapaholic said...

Zumba looks interesting!! I have a really old dance workout video called "Hiphop Aerobics" and it was good for a few weeks but I just got bored with the moves! This looks great 'coz it has different kinds of dances in it. I'll look for it in our local video store. :)

.maitai said...

*Nehs* said...

hi!<3

if i'm not lazy i put an aspirin mask on my face but most of the time i just put an aspirin just on my pimple, overnight. :))

RYC - no they're actually not sakura trees, though they look so similar to them! The white ones are actually almond blossoms and idk what the pink ones are. Some type of fruit I think (wanna say plum but I'm not sure). So I guess the one purk of living the the middle of the country in farm land, are the nice trees in the spring :)
