Week #39

Well, our charity event was a success! Thank you to all of you that came and supported the cause. We had such a fabulous time and all the instructors had a great time being with you! I don't have a total amount but I do know it was over $1800 that we raised that night for Carol's Post Mastectomy. That money will go directly into the hands of some right here in St. George that needs help after enduring through breast cancer. You should all give yourself a pat on the back. To those of you that were not able to make it but still want to donate in a small way, we still have some of our Zumba Gives Back t-shirts that we will sale for $5. They are fun to have so pick one up from Marti or me, plus we don't need 50 extra pink tees laying around so buy them up and raise so more money! The fun thing about this is I get to update you on what our Zumba money went to. I will email you as soon as I get word from Jen Flowers!

Items of business- not much now

We still have DVD's and we would like to get them out of our hands so we can make the next one! :) They are $15

Week #39 Challenge - Food Logs

How many of you write down what you eat every day? It is hard to do but it needs to happen so you can see how many extra calories you are putting into your mouth. You would be surprised at how fast it can add up. Remember that 1 pound = 3500 calories. So if you want to lose weight each week then you need to cut out 3500 calories. It can be done but you need to watch what you eat! You need to think nutritionally dense food that will keep you full. Also if you are exercising on a regular basis (everyday) then you will not get as hungry. So keep track this week and if you want me to come along just imagine me on your shoulder and when you start eating something, either I will have a smile on my face or I will be shaking my finger at you. Think smart before you eat!

Have a great Fall Break and Zumba the week away!
