New Zumba video: “Bailando”

Hi guys! How’s your day going? So happy you enjoyed the slow cooker recipe. Let me know if you give it a try (or celebrate Indian Food Wednesday) πŸ™‚

Today was one of those hard-to-get-moving days.

After playing Legos in our jammies for a while, breakfast, and dance party in the kitchen (Disney on Pandora is clutch), we finally ventured out of the house to People’s.


(I tried to snap some photos but didn’t want to cause alarm. I already did that when I asked where you can find the organic meat. Word to the world: there is no meat. I keep forgetting that.)

They do have chocolate, however.

Macaroon thing

I tried this awesome chocolate-covered macaroon thing. It was glorious.

Even though operation reduce caffeine intake has gone well, some days I need a little Joe.

Blonde roast, almond milk, cinnamon and Stevia. So good πŸ™‚

Got some kale chips in the oven:

Kale  1 of 1

(used the classic recipe with extra nooch and sea salt sprinkled on top)

Kale chips  1 of 1

and am going to get my playlist together for tonight’s Zumba class! On there for sure: β€œBailando” by Enrique Iglesias. I always think of this quote when I hear the song haha.

Here’s a little choreography I put together after watching this video and this video. The reggaeton flamenco combo sets my soul on fire. 

SFW: no booty-slapping ahead. hahah


To do: get up and baile conmigo (<β€” dance with me!)

Hope you have a wonderful night! <3

      • Yup. And I entered my email again just to make sure I hadn’t somehow gotten unsubscribed, but it said that address was already a subscriber . . .or something along those lines. πŸ™‚

  15. I loved it!

    I subscribe to your blog but I am not receiving the emails from you either!!! Luckily I subscribe to Blog lovin so I can still read your blog BUT I prefer to get your actual email in my mail box. If I try to sign up, I am told that I am already a subscriber. Ugh!

    • Fitnessista says:

      that is for my email letter. do you want to get my posts in your inbox?? i need to figure out how to set that up

  16. I just saw that I received an email from you with the calendar for August. I hope I can receive your actual email soon!

  17. Stephanie says:

    This song is so great! My summer jam this year for sure!!!

  18. Very cute!! We went to Santiago de Chile for vacations and they had a Zumba event in the Subway stations, actually underground! it was awesome.

    They were playing a song that I’ve never heard before. It’s one of those songs that make you dance even if you don’t want to. It has a very catchy rhythm. Here it is.. in case you want to make a Zumba choreo for it.

    “Nene malo – Bailan Rochas y Chetas”

  19. I love your kale chips! Have fun at Zumba tonight!

  20. AH! I just started doing Zumba at Total Woman in Irvine (ladies only gym in Orange County) and one instructor teaches this song & I have a total earworm for it. Have listened to it on repeat all week- my fiance is Enrique’d out.

    Maybe I’ll make my way south for a San Diego Zumba class sometime πŸ™‚ I’ve been reading your blog since Valdizzy & raw cooking classes, lol! πŸ˜‰

  21. OH! I should add. If you’re by People’s, you are by Ranchos! They have BANGIN vegan chilaquiles- with potatoes and black beans and good. Loads of vegan Mexican options..and also non-vegan ones πŸ˜‰

  22. Oooh, have to try this! Did a dance DVD at home the other day, absolutely loved every sweaty minute. Made me think of you, like “THIS must be why she loves dance and teaching Zumba so much!” πŸ™‚ Also made me really want to find a studio nearby!

  23. Love it, especially Bella’s cameo ;).

  24. Caffeine just makes some days easier. There’s just no reason to suffer through them! Delicious coffee is a fun way to perk up anyway πŸ™‚

    As always, thanks for the fun video!

  25. ooo-those macaroon’s look amazing! what’s the brand??

  26. love the video – you’re such a great dancer! this makes me wish i didn’t have 2 left feet πŸ˜‰ hehe

  27. Gabrielle says:

    I love Bella wandering around watching her furmama πŸ™‚

  28. I just did this in my office on my lunch hour πŸ™‚ Love getting in a little workout where I can. Love the videos, keep them coming!

  29. Thank you! I was just looking for a new zumba song!

  30. I love Bella’s cameo in this! Too cute πŸ™‚

  31. Though not much of a Zumba-doing chica, I needed a break from some editing, so completed your beautifully choreographed sequence. I learned two things:

    1. Dancing, not one of my gifts (this was not really new information, more an affirmation of what I already knew).

    2. My hardwood floors are filthy (would share a photo of the bottom of my feet but, TMI, obvs.). Yours, on the other hand, are GLORIOUS.

    Thanks for sharing it!

    • Fitnessista says:

      i’m so happy you gave it a whirl and enjoyed it!
      thanks for the floor compliment too haha. i think the lighting made them look cleaner than they are πŸ˜‰

  32. Michele says:

    Gina – this is crazy!! I was actually going to ask you if you could do a Zumba video to Bailando but I didn’t want you to think I was a creeper, lol! It is my FAVORITE song right now and every time I hear it I make up Zumba steps in my head to it, haha! Now I actually have a real routine I can do to it. Thank you!!! πŸ™‚

  33. Loved the video! Definitely going to try it!
