I'm Official!

Two weekends ago I became official! In what you ask? Well I mentioned to you a couple posts back about my love of Zumba. It has become a big part in my life. I absolutely love it! I started taking classes a little over a year ago at my YMCA. I went pretty much every Monday Thursday and Saturday with an occasional Wednesday class. The rest is history!

I decided that I would like to teach this amazing class to people too! I spent an entire Saturday at a Zumba Training workshop with two other squeezes of mine from class and we all got our license to teach! It was a lot of information download and one of the biggest DAY LONG (literally) workouts of my life! I definitely was not one of the skinniest fittest people there but that will come in time. Zumba is great for that! It was amazing!

This past week I started working on choreographing my first song and am so excited for the day I actually put it to use. I plan on starting first with a class at a nearby church building for free just so I can practice teaching and get a good groove down on techniques and a good idea of what people like. I just can't wait!

My Zumba instructor at the YMCA has been such a great support for me and after learning that I got my license decided to let me and one of the other ladies I did the training with be part of the lead group at one of her classes the other day! It was nerve racking but oh so fun! I'll let you all know when I start up my class. It will be a little while since I only have one song ready so far. But wish me luck! I just ordered my first OFFICIAL instructors outfit on Thursday! I can't wait to sport that thing!

Here are a few pics from my Zumba Training Workshop...

Hey, the compost bin plans are off the Lowe's website. They have project plans. Let me know if you can't find them on there and I can email you think link. I don't know if you know, but when someone leaves a comment on your blog, if you are notified of comments in your email you can hit reply and if they have their blog set up with an email it makes it easy to reply to comments. Anyways, yours is not set up like that. I couldn't email you this etc. Anyways, it makes commenting so much more fun because you will get responses back from the blogs you comment on. Let me know if you are interseted and can't figure it out. Someone had to tell me to change my settings so that my email was available. And if you don't want your personal email out there you can set up another account and route it to your favorite email spot. Totally ignore all this if you know and just aren't interested! I just like to be able to reply to my commenters and I can't to you. But maybe that is how you want it. Okay, totally rambling now.
Love the dentist shots. And Zumba is something I am going to have to try...

Yay! Congrats, I'm so happy, excited, and proud of you! I'll come to your class for sure! You should borrow my Turbo Jam video for inspiration- she has some fun sets going on.
