So. You all curious as to what it is I am doing?
My brain feels safe in telling you now. I've already gone off the deep end with it.
Ella and I are Clogging.
This is how it all happened.
I signed up Ella for clogging...
We get there, and really there is no beginners class...Community ed messed up
The instructor gives her the option of taking a "crash" course with one of his best students, or signing up for the beginners classes in March.
She chose the crash course.
This means mom best pay attention, because Mom will be working hard on this at home with her.
Well, by the time next class came around I decided to sign up myself. There were other women my age there clogging...so I wouldn't be the only mom with a bunch of kids.
Somehow my neighbor and her daughter got conned by me to join as well. ;)
We learned some basic stuff. Supposedly 8 weeks worth of training in 3 weeks.
Then christmas break came along, and Ella decided that the crash course was just too much. So she and her friend will be taking the classes in March.
That leaves my neighbor and I to clog on.
Clogging you say?
(these are things I told myself)
what I have found out...
Its a major leg workout. I have yet to see a fat-legged clogger.
My legs are my problem area. :)
I love the social dance part of it all.
I love the challenge of learning a new song every week..its like putting a puzzle together, and being active. Kind of hard to describe.
I love getting out of the house.
I love having a physical hobby.
The one thing that would deter me?
Its mainly centered around country music.
I can't stand country music. LOL!
I actually don't hear the music much anymore.
Its mostly old country, so I can handle that.
There is rock and other songs involved, but its mainly country.
So even with that being said, I love it. I love the challenge, and the whole physical part of it. Its fun. Its fun movement.
On the physical, weight part...I am doing great. I am on track to lose that 10 lbs this year. (maybe even more).
I feel alive. I'm getting up early. I'm eating very well (healthy). Plus, I'm drinking water pretty good. I'm moving every day.
We haven't gotten into the swing of school yet after christmas break...that's next week.
I've painted the walls in my living room and entry. The color of my page.
Oh the hallway too...That's a greeny gold coffee color though.
I am loving my house again.
Well, I just had to stop in and let you know that I am alive! Ode to life is really alive. I'm livin life.
I hope 2009 finds you all movin!
I've found that moving naturally leads me to eating less...and more healthy.
