Once again, long time no post! Actually, with the advent of social networking sites, I think a lot less people are blogging these days, don't you? Anyhow, I'm still around. I continue to keep busy teaching zumba, attending zumba, bellydancing, as well as other group fitness classes. I no longer have to fight with myself to exercise, my body truly craves and enjoys it and I always (or almost always...) look forward to my next work out. It's a great stress reliever as well as a source of social interaction.
Spring will hopefully be here on Vancouver Island soon (according to the calendar in just a few days). While we haven't had much snow this winter, I'm nonetheless very glad to bid the season goodbye. We had a freaky windstorm just last week which resulted in much of our town being without power for varying amounts of time. We were among the fortunate that were only without for about 8 hours, others did not have it restored for days. And although we are now having to deal with insurance to replace half the shingles that left our roof we consider ourselves fortunate because our awesome neigbours noticed and tarped it before the water started leaking through and into our house. And something else to be thankful for is that a huge tree in our driveway snapped and landed on our lawn and not our house or vehicles. Phew!
I spend far too much time on Facebook these days. I've found a wonderful group of zumba instructors there whom I'm able to learn so much from. And I am also trying to have a bit of a presence to promote my own fitness pursuits. To that end, I have a "Zumba with Brenda" page. I am trying to use it not just to promote my classes, but I also want to create a bit of a resource for those trying to embrace a healthy lifestyle. I'm posting links to recipes, fitness information, as well as words of inspiration.
So please give it a look, and I'd also appreciate a "Like" if you are so inclined. Click on the widget to the right or go here. Thanks!!
