Dance Class
I'm having more trouble getting started exercising than I am cutting back calories. This is surprising for me because I was a runner, hike/backpacker, climber, and general outdoor enthusiast all my life but I have a lot of issues with my feet now and I don't like biking very much.

Anyway I didn't have an exercise plan because I wasn't counting on it being hard. I signed up for a dance class (Shag) on Tuesday nights. This is crazy for me because I have two left feet and no rhythm but I think it will get me moving.

Baby steps. Can't wait!

First night of dance class
Dance class was a blast. I have no rhythm and no natural skill in this area. We are supposed to practice 30 minutes a day at home and I know I will because I would hate to be the one holding up the class since I didn't get my steps down, plus I'm dancing with a partner so I'd be making him look goofy too.

It's not a tremendous amount of exercise but it's more than I was doing before.:D

They took pictures so hopefully I'll be able to pull one off the web when they are posted. (If they aren't too bad lol.)

Good job on starting a dance class! I for one would probably never attempt that. I have little coordination and would feel so out of place. You should feel very proud of what you are doing!

Thanks! It was scary to start but worth it. I'm not losing any weight yet though. I was gaining steadily for the last year though so I guess at least I should be happy I haven't gained any lately.
