Last night, I did a Zumba demonstration with friends and fellow SoCo Zumba Instructors Juan Martinez and Patricia Carreno. The Family Fun Night was sponsored by the Network for A Healthy California and had booths featuring Sonoma County Family YMCA, Northern California Center for Well-Being, Redwood Empire Food Bank, CalServes, and Children’s Power Play. We weren’t expecting so many kids there so we quickly adjusted our song choices on the fly and had a great time doing Zumba with kids and adults alike. A very enthusiastic group!
I talked to a nutritionist there and expressed my frustration at the huge amount of nutrition information out there. She said they often just simplify the message to: Eat LOTS of fruits and vegetables. I think those are good words to live by! I’m enjoying delicious pink grapefruit these days and I see the price of blueberries is starting to go down. I’ve never had a problem eating fruits. It’s veggies that I still have to learn to love.
The new session of Santa Rosa Recreation and Parks classes starts next week! Looking forward to it!
