Stacey, so much fun. Now I want to take belly dancing, but alas I live in Podunkity, and the closest thing we have locally is line dancing.

I agree with Stacey: when it comes to bellydance, Bollywood/indo-jazz, or any other sort of dance or fitness activity, the internet is an awesome resource. Try free podcasts from iTunes - I'm sure there are some video classes available on there! When I'm too lazy to drag myself to the gym, my favourite online workout is Zumba via YouTube! - I have a list of saved videos, and make a playlist of about 10 of them and...voila! custom cardio!

Stacey: taping yourself is definitely a HUGE help in improving your dancing. As a teacher, I completely advocate it! Also, some people need to practice without a mirror in order to really FEEL the proper arm/hand/foot placements etc. ...but some other people (I am one), need to SEE the proper placement in order to remember how it feels. I danced without a mirror for years and years, as my former teacher didn't believe in them...I can't believe how much I improved, almost instantaneously, as soon as I could see the mistakes I was making. So, if you don't dance in front of the mirror already (even just in the bathroom, ha!), maybe try that?!

Default Thursday Repport

I was so hipped for this week and I am jsut dragging my butt. I have been sick with a head cold, tired of the A-holes at work and just feeling like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders.

SO hurray for me...I am still tracking and doing something good for me each day (but not overdoing it).

Goals for the week and results (it's all about the results)
  • 1000 daily calorie deficit yes, yes, yes, yes
  • Elliptical 3-4X per week yes, no, no, yes
  • Balance ball stretching no, yes, yes, no
  • Read a book started---- noooooooo
  • Limit coffee to one cup per day yes, yes, yes, yes
Here's looking forward to a great Friday....

They haven't but my sister who has a degree in Biochemistry suspect it might be Staphyloccous Aureus (my son had skin infection, the kind which is caused by S. Aureus, and he had it at the same time like i was ill).
I'm proud of my sister she was best in her class, now she is 28 and studying for PhD.
