If you have issues, or baggage, you may be offended by what you read here. I work through my self loathing of my own fat, and my own fat issues, and I’m told this comes across as loathing all fat people. That is simply not the case.

Here I talk about my issues and my findings, without political correctness. I am not concerned with your issues, or your baggage, or what you may take from this. The title is "My Journey".

This blog is not meant to inspire anyone. I take no responsibility for what you take away from here. You are here as a guest into my inner thoughts.

What Fun!

I just spent my lunch hour dancing with Denise Austin! Michelle loaned me a couple of dance aerobic dvds and I thought I would try one out. I did ten minutes of salsa, and ten minutes of club dancing plus a warm up and cool down. The cool down was awesome because Denise uses yoga moves, which I absolutely love.

Note: never try those supposed club moves in a club unless you want to be laughed out of the place. I don't know what clubs she frequents, or in what year, but I had to laugh, I tell ya. The salsa, merengie, and such were great fun, though!

And what have I learned from this? That I am STILL not coordinated to pick up a dance routine in one try. A fly on the wall would have fallen off laughing at my pitiful attempts. But there was heartrate and sweating, so it's all good!

Now for my run later, and my shred after that. Whoo, an active day!!

I thought the same thing about a "hip-hop" exercise dance video that I watched the other day. I spent more time looking at the lady, wondering just how stupid I'd feel if anyone other than my cat was watching. lol

I like those videos too, but I am to uncoordinated too! Oh well, its the trying that counts. I agree with squishy, if anyone other than my dogs are watching, I would run and hide and well sometimes, even if they are watching!!!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog, by the way!

Wow Dee....dancing, running AND shredding??? You are my new hero!!! I just started level 1 of the shred today and I'm pretty sure my arms ARE going to fall off at some point!! The 30 secs of jumping jacks pretty near killed me. Hope to keep at it and get better - please tell me that happens!! :-) Enjoyed BL tonight - next week back to back episodes!! Pure bliss!! Does that mean 2 popcorn nights for you?!! Cheers!!
