Great Uses for Skype/Google Hangout
Thursday, September 12, 2013
I was talking to one of my sisters yesterday, who is also trying to get in shape, and out of nowhere ... we were talking about Zumba for each of our wii and how we'd like to meet up or switch off going to each others houses or neighborhoods to hang out, work out, etc. Well, she lives about 45 min from me and my car, as of now, is down for the count. It would make it hard for us to do our newly discussed plan to get together (to work out, but also spend quality sister time together).
Well. We talked about trying to "Zumba together" over skype or the google hangout. Keep in mind my previous blog of people always saying we'll plan to do this but we never start it, they flake after trying it, or I never hear from them about it again. Well, so far, we planned on our zumba games calender a 6 week program to do Mon - Fri together over skype/hangout; after our first session today. None of the other people I've had similar conversations with has actually planned something for this long and in this much detail. I have a good feeling we'll do this together for sure and for as long as we planned ... maybe even longer.
Again, today was day one that we actually went on skype and hit zumba at the same time and danced together in different houses. ha ha ha We could look to make sure we were both doing it too and rooted each other on. It was fun and helped very much with knowing that even though we were 45 min away ... we could still hear each other saying,
"keep it going"
"You're doing great"
"same time tomorrow"
....and all that.
Glad to know our first session was awesome. And we actually completed 45 min of zumba together. I'll skype her again tomorrow morning for round 2 of day 2 at 8 am. So cool so far. :)
In cases like this, I am so thankful for programs like skype and Google hangout. So cool.
Thanks for stopping by!
