At Zumba Today with Diane & Carl 3/24/2016

Thursday, March 24, 2016

Our instructor (Donna) was certified with a woman who worked from a wheelchair - she had no legs and became a certified Zumba Instructor. I might be a ways off from that, but I'm going to do my gardening and walk again.

Carl is in grey exercise shorts and shirt - hairy legs & all, Diane is in black with a pink headband. You only see him in the mirrors, but we needed proof that I workout from the chair. Zumba really is fun!

I'm going to keep a record of my progress right here on Spark People!!!

    Mark, that looks like so much fun!! I bet you had a blast. You are looking great!!! I remember doing Zumba a few years back, and I am quite uncoordinated, but the music makes you move, no matter what. High Five for you and Carl!! I may just dust off my Zumba tapes and join you guys for added fun, right here from home (Gym is too pricey and too far away), So just for you, I will get my Zumba on again, and you shall garden and walk. Let's do this together!!
    Hugs and Cheer (and prayers always),

    Mark, looks like you kids are having fun. Anything that keeps us moving is super. I like your idea of VLOGing your progress on Spark People... It's easy to forget how far we've come.
    Thanks for sharing and keep us posted buddy... Cheers, Brad

    You've come a long way since your stroke 3 years ago, and your recent 10 day ICU stay not two weeks ago!

    Your determination is an inspiration to us all! Hang in there!
