Music Obsessions: Zumba Overload!

 The holidays are over now and I’m heading right back into the busy times at work.  At the same time, all that food binging and vacation meant that only means that I need to get back to the healthy lifestyle.  I have to admit that I did let loose a little at the end of the year after all the getting married was gone and I didn’t have to worry about not fitting into my dresses and looking pretty for the pictures.  But, this year, I need to get back to working out regularly and hopefully, I get back not only cardio but the weight training back as well.  What better way to get me motivated to get off my behind and start working out than Zumba music, more specifically my fave songs that I’ve been acquainted with because of Zumba class.

Here are some of my faves that I love working out/dancing to in class! Hope you like it and it adds some energy to your day, just as it always puts a smile on mine 🙂

This kind of reflects how a normal Zumba session would go but the Zumba instructor usually swaps a bunch of songs around and adds and removes things every week.

La Gozadera – Gente de Zona ft Marc Anthony

Bambalam – General Degree

Caliente – Jay Santos

Adios – Ricky Martin

6AM – J Balvin & Farruko

El Perdon – Enrique Inglesias & Nicky Jam

Lento – Daniel Santacruz

I think the best thing about Zumba other than making me feel energetic and happy all the time, its about discovering that I really like Ricky Martin now.  I was never a fan of his when I was younger in his Livin’ the Vida Loca days but if I had the choice, I could fill up this list with 2 more of his songs but I wanted to keep some variety. 😉 Also, I’m not much of a Pitbull fan but although not here, one of the most fun for routines is the routine to Fireball.  On a side note, we just learned this Salsa Zumba routine and I can’t find the song but when I do, maybe I’ll put it in the next Music Obsessions 😉

Now, I just need to make sure that I follow through with the weight training portion and when winter ends in a few months, I’ll be back to running also. I’m pretty pumped up about getting back to working out and staying healthy for 2016.

Happy Sunday, my lovelies! 🙂

Music (and Youtube) Obsessions: Music and Comedy edition

I’m going to need a new name for this segment soon.  Sure, I still use Youtube to listen to music but I don’t as much as I used to.  Between movies and blogging and everything else in between, my other part of life is watching gaming videos on Youtube and watching Youtubers with their little shenanigans that entertain me a lot.  So, I just couldn’t not share it.  Last time, I shared The Whisper Challenge which was a ton of fun. We’ll switch it up a little this time and intertwine funny vids (that I had a good laugh) and music that I keep replaying! How does that sound?

Just a note: The music will vary in genre and style.  We have some country, some latin, a cover and electronic.  As for funny clips, its mostly from two challenges over at the guys who did the first Whisper Challenge.  Its rather silly but I like it a lot.  If you didn’t like the first one, then don’t bother with it.  While I also added in videos from my favorite Hong Kong comedian since I found some videos with English subs and they are done pretty well so hopefully you’ll enjoy it! 🙂

Let’s give that a go and have some fun! 🙂

Take Your Time- Sam Hunt

I might have posted up Sam Hunt’s performance on The Ellen Show months ago but I really like this video.

It’s All About Perspective! – Dayo Wong [Stand-up Comedy]

La Mordidita – Ricky Martin feat. Yotuel

If you didn’t know, the place where I do Zumba classes had this Flash Mob thing at a shopping mall.  Unfortunately, I had plans already so I couldn’t join but I finally found the song for the routine that I love the best because of it.  Didn’t know it was Ricky Martin but its super fun.  I can’t help but do the routine when it goes on. This is officially stuck in my head!

The Whisper Challenge #2 – Markiplier, Wade (LordMinion777), Matthias & Jesse

Cheerleader – Pentatonix (cover)

I’m not a huge fan of the original of this one but Pentatonix does a great acapella version of it.  They are truly amazing!

Employees and Employers – Dayo Wong [Stand-up Comedy]

Tomorrow is Today -Jack Howes ft. J-HYPE

Finish My Sentence Challenge -Markiplier, Wade (LordMinion777), Matthias & Jesse

There’s not much else to say! Hopefully you enjoyed it, either liked the music.  I tried to keep it upbeat for the most part.  Or maybe you enjoyed the comedy and had a good laugh.  I’m sorry if it didn’t but comedy is subjective.  I always say it but I still wanted to share! 😉

Happy Friday, my lovelies! Have an awesome weekend!! 🙂

What song has been stuck in your head?
