Zumba at 82 – Fit for Life

Posted by ZumbaContraCosta on March 9, 2014

Zumba at 82 Sustains Palo Alto Resident

As seen in Contra Costa Times, March 9, 2014.  By Martha Ross

Zumba at 82

Adele Tarran, 82, has long made exercise a regular habit. She considers it essential to her overall mental and physical wellness. If she goes a few days without a workout, she feels “achy.”

“Exercise helps work those kinds of things out and makes me feel stronger and better all around,” the Palo Alto resident says.

Tarran took up tennis when she was raising her three sons on Long Island. Once they were grown and out the house, she started going to aerobics classes with a friend.

When Tarran moved to Palo Alto in 2009 to be closer to her sons and five grandchildren, she didn’t give up her habit — she expanded it.

Living in the Moldaw Residences, a senior living community, has allowed her to explore different types of exercise and fitness regimes. The community is next door to the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center, which offers a range of classes daily.

Tarran has become a regular at the center’s Monday aerobics class, Tuesday tai chi and Saturday morning Zumba, a fitness program that combines aerobics and martial arts moves with choreography from hip-hop, Latin and other dance styles.

“It can be hard to start exercising when you reach a certain age and if you hadn’t done so before,” she says. “For me, I’ve been enjoying aerobics for a long time, so it’s hard to stop.”

She loves the intensity of Zumba, and the complementary grace, balance and strength offered by tai chi. When she’s not in classes, she visits the center’s weight training room or takes herself on walks around the neighborhood or along San Francisco Bay.

“If I don’t go to class and it’s a beautiful day, I’ll take a walk,” Tarran says.

The former New Yorker also has become a regular patron of the region’s best cultural offerings, from San Francisco Symphony to Berkeley Repertory Theatre.

Tarran thinks that leading an active lifestyle, from going to concerts and theater to regular workouts, keeps her healthy overall.

“If you feel good, then you’re happy,” she says.

Low Carb Dessert in Minutes

Posted by ZumbaContraCosta on May 27, 2013

Jorge Cruise’s 2-Minute Cake

JorgeCruise 2 min cake - Dr Oz

Whip up a fresh low-carb dessert in just minutes with this recipe from diet expert and best-selling author Jorge Cruise. Microwave it in a mug to enjoy the warmth and comfort, all while practicing portion control!

If you love breaded foods and baked goods but stay away because of all the carbs and calories, you’ll be happy to learn about low-carb flour alternatives you can cook with:

 

 

Coconut Flour

  • High in protein and fiber and low in digestible carbs
  • Use it to make breaded foods.

 Almond Flour

  • Powerful prebiotics, healthy fats, high in protein and monounsaturated fats
  • Use it for baking. It adds moistness and a rich nutty taste

 Flaxseed Flour

  • These are flaxseeds that have been ground into flour. Rich in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Use it to make cookies, pancakes, muffins and cakes.

 

2-Minute Cake With Almond Flour

Ingredients

1/4 cup Truvia Baking Blend

1/2 cup almond flour

3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

1/8 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

2 tbsp coconut oil

1 egg

2 tbsp half & half

Directions

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until the mixture is even and smooth (no lumps).

Pour 1/4 of the mixture into a mug and microwave for 2 minutes.

Refrigerate remaining batter for later!

 Janice’s Zumba classes begin June 2nd & 4th at Tice Valley Gym, Walnut Creek.  Register Now at:  http://www.WalnutCreekRec.org or just show up with check or credit card & Janice will take care of you personally.  Tice Valley Gym, 2055 Tice Valley Blvd., Walnut Creek, Tuesday’s & Thursday’s 7:30 pm.
