Hi! I'm Kirsten. I'm an active wife, mom and pharmacist who is seeking to develop a healthy balance with my nutrition, exercise and weight. I want to have a healthy attitude towards food and to be able to enjoy all things in moderation. I love to work out--my current exercise obsession is Zumba !! (previous ones have been: running, swimming, skiing (downhill and cross-country), aerobic classes of all kinds, Tae Kwon Do, biking, roller-blading, Curves, elliptical trainer). I've lost weight successfully with Weight Watchers and Weigh Down Workshop. Now I'm taking what I've learned from all of the above to develop my own individual exercise & wt loss program, with the support of others in this online community!!

    Thank you for the info on the MP3 connector...I will still have to look for them. I am lucky, though, I did get another Zumba job and they will provide me with a stereo I will be all set with my cd's!!! Yipee!!

    I love your Zumba shirt...I noticed it's not on the Zumba website. Any suggestions as to where I might buy one like it.

    The Gold Training is in the middle of Indiana (sort of the middle of nowhere, which surprised me-Wabash) June 9th. I'll be missing the local Pork Rind Festival (darn it-haha) that day.

    PA is about 5 hours from me but I think maybe we need to revisit our "Spark Zumba Instructors Convention" idea again. It would be so fun to meet up.

    Oh, and I STILL use your Un Mes choreo - it's a hit in every class.

    I've been practicing your Un Mes choreo yesterday and today. The only thing I changed was adding the little kicks from Beto's choreo because I really liked that part. The rest is all yours! I love that song and am so happy to be able to bring it to the classes I do with less complicated moves! Thank you!
