    African dance sounds like a lot of fun!
    I'm a kind-of "rigid" person. I stand tall, but more than that I hold myself pretty straight at most times. I can loosen up and even dance a bit, but it takes a while. Or some alcohol, either way, lol.
    I think something like that would be great to break out of my stiffness, as I call it. :P
    My guy(would-be husband? 6 yrs together at the end of October) starts a job on Thursday and I couldn't be happier. I mean, I'll miss him, but I'll actually have a chance to miss him. We've been working together out of the house for months while he's been looking for work, since I hurt my back and had to leave my job.
    I need to get back to my physical therapy routine, I was never really good about doing it at home. I plan on doing my Pilates DVD too, since I'll have time to myself without anyone watching me.
    So that's what's up! Just trying to stay more committed in my everyday decisions~ Not too shabby, eh? Oh, and I'm over 200 days cigarette free!!

    So how's your committment to healthy lifestyle going? :D

    Yeah, I get ya. =^)
    I use kind of an "applied" cognitive behavioral therapy approach with my younger daughter, she has autism with developmental delays and is non-verbal. I say "applied" in the way I do because it's generally more of a self-practiced thing. But it's amazing how things can change for you when you change your beliefs and recognize self-limiting actions, isn't it?

    I have been thinking too, about what you wrote about your research into the self esteem thing(something I've struggled with, and always had kind of a messed up view) and it not being vanity or superficial-ness. :P
    I mean, I've been thinking about it A LOT. Coincidence? Perhaps.....

    I'm so ready to drop some extra pounds and in the process tone some muscles! I've dilly-dallied enough, I believe. Its like there always has to be some catalyst moment that occurs right before my big changes in life, and I feel like I'm on the verge of one now. I'm excited for it though.
    Without change, I will never grow. Accepting that was something else, lemme tell ya.
    So that's enough of MY long-winded response.
    I hope YOU have a great week too!

    Happy Autumn!
