Before I became a mother, I wore a size 0. I liked my figure for the most part because I had a dream to become a model, but because I am only 5â€™5, that dream didnâ€™t measure upâ€¦literally. Now after FOUR babies, I only dream to be that size again. Iâ€™m now a size 4 and I am now comfortable with this size, but I know a size 5 can look so much better. My husband enjoys these new curves, but I know the feel better about this new body, I must work hard to shape it up. Last year, my husband brought home a PS3 Move with a Zumba workout â€œgameâ€. He heard me mention it before, and I was quite surprised that he actually got it. After I had my son, I was the biggest Iâ€™ve ever been. I wore mostly 7â€™s. I was horrified! Now donâ€™t get me wrong, some women can make a 7 look fabulous, but my height wasnâ€™t use to the extra. Nursing my children helped shed pounds, but I wasnâ€™t eating healthy all of the time. I began a workout schedule and was losing inches, but then my workouts came to an end once I found out I was pregnant AGAIN. So nearly a year later after I decided to shape up, Iâ€™m back at it again. I am now working out 3 times a week 30-40 minutes each of those three days. Since I began this new schedule, Iâ€™ve cut back on the fried and processed foods and sugared beverages to baked and sautÃ©ed meals, fruit juices and plenty of water. Not only am I enjoying the workout, but I feel a difference and see the outcome of this Zumba workout and healthy eating.
If you are considering a workout regimen but hate being bored, try Zumba!
Check out the video to see how it worksâ€¦this video is played with the Kinect, but with the Move, you use the controller and Zumba belt to monitor movement and hip action.
