TARA ZUMBA® with
Welcome to the second newsletter for Zumba® with Tara! We now have been Zumbaring away for a whole month and I have most definitely noticed the hips are moving more and the salsa steps are getting easier! The most important thing I want to NEWSLETTER talk about is the Zumba® with Tara FLASHBACK PARTY. It’s on Wednesday 6.30pm to 8.30pm at the Swan Italian Club. It will be two hours of Zumba® to your favourite old school tunes as well as Latin beats! It will be split up with Latin dancers and entertainment – so you won’t be Zumbaring non-stop. Basically the party is there to burn calories, have lots of fun and raise money for AELC. The Australian Experiential Learning Centre is situated in Midland and it supports young people, local business and Entrepreneurs. AELC provides internships as well as free office space and support for people who want to start or grow their own business. Visit www.aelc.edu.au/ for more info! Please wear sneakers, but it’s up to you how dressed up you get. An iPod is up for grabs for best dressed and most outrageous dancing, as well as Zumba® apparel and a free 10 pass! Think ABBA, Grease, ACDC, 60s Swingers, 80s Lycra and Disco fever. This is a great chance to invite friends, family, boyfriends, dads, brother, fathers, and sisters so they can see what Zumba® is all about! Please register online at zumbawithtara.eventbrite.com/.
Clean up yourdiet! A lot of people have told me how Zumba® is their way to burn fat and get fit again! Everyone has one reason or another. They just had a baby, they hate the gym, have no time to exercise between work and family, the weight from Christmas 1998 still hasn’t come off or they simply are serial snackers! There are millions of diets out there and ways to lose weight, plus everyone is very different. But one thing which I think is universal and will help you lose weight while doing Zumba® is CLEANING OUT YOUR FRIDGE AND PANTRY. If the snacks, the chocolate and the biscuits aren’t physically in your home, you cannot eat them. Some of you will think, but my husband and kids need it! I encourage you to just slowly stop buying any of these snacks and see how much they really notice. Also, buy little packaged snacks, so the quantity is controlled and sometimes you mentally feel worse opening a packet, rather than just sticking your hand into a jar. Eg, lollies in little packets by Natural Confectionary, are better than a jar of lollies or chocolate you can constantly pick at! Just remember, if it isn’t in the pantry, or in the fridge, or in your lunch box, then you cannot eat it! Enjoy your meals but “cut the crap” in between by making it unattainable!
