Okay, so I haven’t been doing my ZCUT DVDs. It was super hard! Instead I’ve decided to take it slow and build up to it. I am doing Zuzka Light’s ZGYM! She has recently developed a beginner series that is much easier for me to keep up with without feeling discouraged. So, here’s to making some progress and changing my body. YAY!
