Cracking Hands are No Fun

Angel Baby Shampoo & Body Wash
Winter weather dries out your hands even more than the dry desert air already does. I have found that no lotion is good enough to compensate for bad soap. I started using this baby shampoo as my hand soap a couple of years ago and it makes a world of difference in the condition of my hands. And it smells citrusy and refreshing. I ran out of it about a month ago and, boy!, can I tell the difference. I just ordered more and thought I would share the information with you.

Our Song List!

You’ve been asking for my song list. I am finally posting it so you can search for your favorites. If an artist is not listed after the title, it is probably a Zumba® issued song and I don’t know the artist. If you find one, it may be a slightly different version.

Baila Pa Emociona
Busa, Lebo M
The Cup of Life, Ricky Martin
Danca Da Maozinha (the hip and hand song that makes your legs feel like rubber)
Don’t Worry, Playing For Change (stretch song, great foundation that creates this music)
Drum Rain (the instrumental belly dance)
Dynamite, Tao Cruz
El Marciano
Everybody Wants You, Billy Squier
Fire Burning, Sean Kingston

Tu Bomboncito
Waka Waka, Shakira
Witchy Woman, Kristin Chenowith (or if you prefer the original by the Eagles)

I’m getting a new DVD from Zumba anyday now. Maybe there will be more!

The Disease Called "Perfection"

I found this message on another blog. We could all use a reality check every now and then. It's worth your time. Then ask yourself: how do I contribute to the myth of perfection? How have I been tricked by the myth of perfection? What will I do to break free?
