THANKSGIVING ZUMBA PLAYLIST 2014!

Thank you for ordering those holiday pies at www.mamaspies.org!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

Hello dumplings!

As always, I'll be hosting a free Zumba class on Thanksgiving Eve. I love putting together "theme" playlists and have changed it up a little this year. This is a great playlist for your holiday walk (Turkey Trot) or run as well - the important thing is to MOVE before we all sit down for the big feast. 

WARMUP
Thank You For Being a Friend by Andrew Gold 
Yes, it's the GG theme, but I've always loved the Harry Nilsson influence here. What better way to say THANK YOU?

CARDIO
Everybody Eats by Cab Calloway
Nothing like a little jitterbug to get the heart pumpin'!

Mash Potato by Chubby Checker
A fabulous twist on...the twist.



ARM TONING
I Thank You by Sam and Dave
CARDIO
All You Can Eat by Candye Kane
She's not called "the toughest woman alive" for nothing!

EAT IT by Wierd Al Yankovic
Even FASTER than the original by MJ, this one is a scorcher!

Seriously, how cute if this?
CARDIO

BOOK VS MOVIE: We're OFF...

...to see the WIZARD! Or, at least, talk about him behind his back.


In our latest episode of BOOK VS MOVIE (also available on iTunes and Stitcher) Margo and I delve into the trippy, often scary, world of OZ.

Yeah...I would never read this book to my kids. They can't even make it through the movie without leaving the room when those flying monkeys show up. 


Check Out Film Podcasts at Blog Talk Radio with Book VS Movie on BlogTalkRadio
Click the player above and join us as we uncover the weird and wonderful story of Oz-creator L. Frank Baum, the many lives risked on the set of the iconic movie and the bizarre night I met a munchkin.


And don't forget to follow Book VS Movie on Facebook for more trivia and convo on our fun, new podcast.

Because of the wonderful things we does.

Wishing you love with extra cheese-
