Dance Classes!

Thank you so much for your responses to yesterdays post.  I really just felt like I needed to get that out there as it's been on my mind frequently this week.  It's a huge reason for my weight gain and something I have been actively working through.  

Now on to much happier things!  I got up today and headed to the YMCA to sign up for a few dance classes.  I use to take dance classes as a teenager to help with my skating.  I absolutely loved them.  So this fall I will be taking Zumba on Monday nights and Belly Dancing on the Tuesdays before my Aqua Bootcamp class.  I cannot believe I actually went and signed up.  This is something that I have been putting off until I am thin.  Over the course of this summer, I started thinking, why not now?  What a great way to get some exercise, have fun and shed some inches.  So I took the plunge today.  I honestly cannot wait to get started.  It does mean that I have a class or two Mon-Thurs but I am totally ok with that.  Honestly, I've had to cut back my tv and internet habits which is just fine by me.  I finally feel like I am an active participant in my life again rather then a spectator.  Well I am having a quick lunch and then it's back out there to keep going on the renovations. 

Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend!



  1. Belly dancing is so much fun! I used to take lessons for several years, until I ran out of time (with 1 hour way just to get to the location). The BF and I are considering taking "normal" dancing lessons this winter. Looking forward to it.

  2. I would love to take "normal" dance classes with my husband...maybe sometime in the future. It's not really his thing. I am so looking forward to my dance classes though.
