HEALTHY HOMEMADE VEGGIE CHIPS
Here are some veggie chips I made myself. It takes some time, but much healthier than store bought chips. I used my mandoline slicer to cut the veggies thin and fried them in vegetable oil. I did the potato 1st, sweet potato 2nd, and the beets last. (The beets will turn the oil a red color). I sprinkled on a little seasoning salt and they chips are crisp and ready to eat!

Mixing it up!
This month I'll be able to start working on some new routines per the song requests. Zumba is my 3rd job. So sometimes I get really busy and I'm not able to get everything on my to do list. I may not be able to come up with something for every song request. I just wanted to let you know they are on the way!
KEEPING MOTIVATED TO WORK OUT
The seasons are changing and we're making our way into the cold, lazy, dark winter nights. I'll do my best to keep classes fun, upbeat and not mundane. But it's up to you to keep working out to stay healthy. Here are some tips.
Make it fun
Find sports or activities that you enjoy, then vary the routine to keep you on your toes. If you're not enjoying your workouts, try something different. Join a volleyball or softball league. Take a ballroom dancing class. Check out a health club or martial arts center. Discover your hidden athletic talent. Remember, exercise doesn't have to be drudgery — and you're more likely to stick with a fitness program if you're having fun.
Make physical activity part of your daily routine
If it's hard to find time for exercise, don't fall back on excuses. Schedule workouts as you would any other important activity. You can also slip in physical activity throughout the day. Be creative! Take a walk during your child's music lesson. Take the stairs instead of the elevator at work. Pedal a stationary bike or do strength training exercises with resistance tubing while you watch TV at night.
If you're too busy to work out or simply don't feel up to it, take a day or two off. Be gentle with yourself if you need a break. The important thing is to get back on track as soon as you can.
Remember, physical activity is for life!
