It took me a little over a month to find a copy of Wii Zumba. I realize, I could be using my Y membership and going to the Zumba class, but I’m just not fond of awkwardly trying to dance and sweating in a group. I have the Zumba DVD’s with the toning sticks, but there’s no interaction, aside from me saying colorful words when I trip over my own feet. No. I have Wii Zumba, with my not-very-fancy-at-all green belt of goodness that supposedly monitors my hip movements despite it constantly moving off my hip/waist no matter how much I adjust it. Ah, well. I dance, and the little dancer on the screen turns green! I get points! It’s so rewarding to earn points…..points that I can’t cash in for a snack afterward, but points nonetheless!
….and what was I thinking of the entire time I did my first Wii Zumba workout?
Oh, you know, the ideas for my upcoming Valentine cupcakes. Chocolate with strawberry frosting (like I’ve done for two years now, delish as always) but maybe adding a freshly cut strawberry on top – with a little finesse, I could shape it into a heart. Or, I could do the same flavor combo and get some my current obsession candy, Sunny Seed Drops (chocolate coated sunflower seeds) and make X’s and O’s on top of the cupcakes. Or, I found a recipe for an awesome chocolate frosting. Chocolate on chocolate? Vanilla with chocolate? Hmmmmm.
So, as I danced for 30 minutes, burning off my calories, I was contemplating many future caloric possibilities!
