one of my favorite exercises is Zumba! It's so much fun, and my teenager does it with me.
Lots of dancing, great music, and moves. It doesn't get boring at all!
Join the Party!
Zumba Fitness® is the only Latin-inspired dance-fitness program that blends red-hot international music, created by Grammy Award-winning producers, and contagious steps to form a "fitness-party" that is downright addictive.

Since its inception in 2001, Zumba Fitness has grown to become the world’s largest – and most successful – dance-fitness program with more than 10 million people of all shapes, sizes and ages taking weekly Zumba classes in over 90,000 locations across more than 110 countries.

And.... It's LOTS of FUN! Yes, I have lost weight, thank you very much :)

I also bought Zumba for the wii. I HATE it! It doesn't register my moves, it doesn't register my daughter's either, and we've even tried positioning the wiimote on different spots, different sides and still have issues :(

Another thing I like to do is Just Dance 2 :) (I don't have Just Dance 1.) My daughter got to try this out at the High School Library during a special exhibition thing and she came home raving about it. She was so excited I went out and bought it. LOVE IT!
Just Dance 2
I have no idea why this takes us to Facebook since the link is to just dance games dot com but whatever LOL
My fave Just Dance 2 song? Baby Girl

I hope you get lots of exercise. Especially since the weather outside isn't as nice as it is inside. Don't forget to take care of YOU so you can take care of others :)

Dirty Bits

Yes. I'm laughing as I write this. It may not seem silly to you, but it is to me. I was talking to my husband as we picked out music to download. I was explaining I only wanted this one for the Dirty Bits. LOL You should have seen his face. I did. It was worth it! But seriously? I only listen to it for the dirty bits. I didn't like the song at first. I would change the station whenever I could. (I don't like when people remake a perfectly good song.)

Hope the link worked. It's a very interesting video.

My shiny sink!

I have a shiny sink! I had no problem cleaning and shining my sink before, the problem was KEEPING it empty and clean and shiny. So far it's been a week :)
For extra measure, I've kept my stovetop clean and shiny, too! It's a black glasstop.

I used to belong to a group back when I was a stay at home mom. I left the group when I went to work full time. But, I'm so tired of not being happy with my house, that I rejoined under the advice of two friends, Lena Austin and Cynnara Tregarth.

This magickal group? FlyLady
Under baby steps, on day one - we have a SHINY SINK!

Something very neat happened even on the first night. I pulled all the kids and husband aside and explained that this was a shiny sink and a shiny stove. If they wished me to continue to cook for them, they needed to stay this way. Empty, clean, and shiny! That night we had the first test. My husband -testing me I guess, he tossed a peanut buttered knife in my shiny sink. My 8 year old gasped and said "You have to wash it, Daddy!" He laughed at her and she told him he was messing up mommy's shiny sink. She ended up washing it for him. Just to keep my sink shiny.

It has stayed shiny. I've found a few glasses sitting on the counter, but by now even my husband knows not to dirty my sink. This afternoon I went to cook, so I set my half empty glass next to the sink and pulled out some things from the fridge. My husband -thinking he was so smart, drops his dirty fork (stromboli) into my glass! (with my drink!) I said "WHAT the &*#(^&$&*)*(#$ are you doing?" "I didn't want to dirty your sink." I had to draw in several deep breaths, and then I picked up my glass, tilted it to show him it had fluid in it. He said "Oh. I just didn't want to dirty your sink."

I'm not sure if I'm ready for day two yet. I'm not having a hard time keeping the sink and stove shiny, but I'm worried that if I move too fast I'll drown. I think Monday may be a good day to try the next step.
