I just caught an infomercial for Zumba workout videos. It looks like something I might be able do, though maybe not gracefully. I think my kids might even do it with me. Have you tried it? What did you think? How difficult is it to follow the steps? Have you lost any weight or toned up by doing it?

I go to zumba classes 3 times a week. We have 2 amazing trainers, ex ballroom dance champions. They are both very funny, both Hispanics, one is a woman in her 40s and the other is a guy in his 30s. We laugh a lot and the hour flies by. Usually we turn off the lights and put up the disco lights. It's really something for me, as the mother of two babies, to feel like I go to a dance club 3 times a week. Actually, one time, we rented a club downtown on a Saturday morning and did a zumbathon, which was 90 minutes of continuous dancing. I am not the best dancer, but I like to dance. They use all kinds of dance steps from Latino dancing but it's not like they are teaching you how to dance, it's very repetitive moves, you can master them fairly quick. I have lost 20 pounds since I go there, started 8 months ago. But I also watch what I eat. I feel great afterwards, physically, mentally, emotionally. (continued)
