It hurts me deeply that y’all don’t log every detail of my every post deep into your memory banks. ;)
(119 days till the Zumba Convention!!)
My new Zumba shoes…maybe? Giving them a trial run tonight.
They’re Ryka Influence and I ordered them because they -
1. Get really good reviews from fellow Zumba enthusiasts
2. Have removable insoles for orthotic inserts.
Then feel pretty good, though they are more “grippy” than I expected. Not necessarily a bad thing (I’ve actually felt TOO slip-n-slidey recently) as long as I can pivot when I need to pivot!
Yes my socks match and yes I did it on purpose. :P
Dog Fails (Part 1) [x]
Previously: Goat GIFs
OK but can we talk about how long I watched that GIF with the front door before I figured out what the heck was going on and why it was a “fail”….
119 days till the Zumba Convention.
119 days to get my booty back into all the awesome Zumba clothes I own that don’t fit anymore. (I’m lookin’ at you, Zumba Cargos!)
119 days to stop undermining all the hard work I do in the gym with overeating and poor food choices.
Get with it!
Trusted myself with a box of Banana Nut Cheerios.
So far, so portion-controlled-good.
I did it! I did it! I did it!!!!!
I got all the classes I wanted! Every single one.
I’m so excited I could vomit up my cheesy eggs.
Zumba Convention Registration Celebration!!
Just sitting here eating my cheesy eggs and refreshing the screen every 30 seconds.
Tick tock tick tock…
Registration for the Zumba Convention opens tomorrow morning!!!
There’s no publicized starting time, but I’ve heard from many many people that I need to be ready and waiting at my computer with my credit card at 7am. So plan on coming straight home from my Zumba class in the morning and waiting - sweat and all - until I get through. I’M SO NERVOUS!!!! There will be a frenzy of people from all over the world trying to sign up and classes fill up really quickly. If my computer wigs out on me while I’m trying to get registered, I really might have a nervous breakdown.
I’ve been pouring over the schedule almost constantly since it was released, trying to decide what to take. What you see above is my list of first picks, plus back up plans. I’m flexible, won’t-get-my-heart-broken on everything EXCEPT Zumba Pro Skills with Steve Boedt. I have to get into that class. H-A-V-E TO! Everyone goes nuts over Beto, but Steve is my Zumba crush.
A presentation he gave at a previous conference is on Zumba.com for instructors to watch and it quite literally changed the way I thought about Zumba and about being an instructor. I’ve watched it 5 or 6 times and think about his advice in almost every class! I just love the heart he has for his students. So spending a day learning from him would be everything to me.
I also really really want to get licensed for Zumba Step, even though I have no idea when or where I would teach that format. It just looks like something I would absolutely love! I’m not as picky about who I take that from, but it sure would be cool if I could get in Marcie Gill’s class since she helped create the program from the ground up!
