The good news is a LOT of amazing things happened last week! I taught my first FULL Zumba® class at It’s Personal Fitnessin Chelmsford (come by and see me every Thursday at 7pm!). I got to dance the night away with my…

Zumbathons: Dancing for a Good Cause

Zumbathons: Dancing for a Good Cause

So I’ve been thinking about Zumba® and Zumbathons a lot lately, mostly because I have been given the amazing honor of participating in several that are coming up over the next few weeks.

Well people, I might not have one of those magic buttons but I had to hit restart today!

Helping Myself with “Self Help”

Helping Myself with “Self Help”

I’m not usually one to read “self help” books. As a matter of fact I have a hard time taking them seriously. BUT as part of my new Beachbody job I’ve taken on the task of “self development” (again a phrase I usually bock at). So I started reading The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy. As hard as I have tried to notlike this book it is like reading page after page of oracle-like knowledge. To give…

Measure Twice…How to Take Weight Loss Measurements

Measure Twice…How to Take Weight Loss Measurements

Measure twice!

Measure twice!

Measure twice….once before you start your new workout program and again when your challenge is complete! The number on the scale is NOT always the best indicator of your progress. Over the last year I’ve found a strange amount of comfort in keeping track of my measurements, especially during those months where the scale doesn’t seem to move in any direction. Since I’m starting my 6…
