The hiatus should be over!

Sunday, May 01, 2011

I was doing really well for a while there. Don't know why, but I seem to have gone through a "burned out" stage...I didn't eat well, didn't exercise regularly (or even want to) and barely tracked anything. Blech! And of course, I have paid for it on the scale and in how I feel.

My lack of caution allowed my blood sugars to climb..not good. And of course, my body reported back...I have a canker sore in my mouth, I had a few nights of leg cramps and poor sleep...and the ringing in my ears got louder. All right already!!! I got the point!

Today has been better, though not good exactly either with food or exercise. I AM trying to get myself refocussed.

I also had the unpleasant surprise of having my computer zapped by lightening on Wed...pretty much AFTER all the storms had gone through. I am using my elderly laptop....and today IT suddenly went on a high alert security upset...which effectively stopped me from doing ANYTHING. My wonderful son in law was able to get whatever was happening resolved and I am able to be back online. I have also lined up someone to see if anything is salvageable from my big computer.

My final bit of news is one I wish I had photos for...I think. About a week or so ago, I asked my husband if he would consider taking a dancing lesson. AND HE SAID YES! I was astonished!!! There is a group beginners class on Thursdays so we went. (DH has applied for a new job and since we hadn't heard yet, I figured we had better go before the job kicked in..then who knows when we could go!)

We learned the most basic elementary steps of the waltz, the rumba and swing. On Saturday we had the "free" private lesson to practice and improve on what we had learned. It was fun doing it together emoticon...more than DH had expected. He said it was easier with music. lol emoticon This is the sales pitch lesson...and to my delight...DH signed us up for three more private lessons and that includes three "parties" which are really just social dance times to practice with instructors there to help. SO, Tuesday evening we go again!!!

One interesting thing I discovered is that I hardly have ANY shoes with leather soles...except for little dress shoes that I would never be able to keep on dancing! We shall see if I need dancing shoes "down the road". emoticon

    Sounds fun. I'm to shy to do it though.

    When it comes to dancing, I am too shy. My DH enjoys dancing, just he is really terrible at it. Instead of telling him how bad he is, I just avoid all scenes with dancing! lol
    I am going through that exact same thing with my fitness and eating. The scale is telling me I need to get back to work, but I am not quite ready to jump back in. We have our DC in June. So maybe next month I will get "back on" the wagon. I still will go for a walk every now and then, but a REAL workout has to wait until I am ready.

    That would be such fun! I wish they offered something like that around here - I'd sign up in a heartbeat! *HUGS*

    I should have added that credit is due my daughter who is having fun with HER lessons. We were so impressed with her new skills! Wow.

    That would be a dream come true for me. My sons did Latin-American and Ballroom dancing. I wanted all of us to do the same, but my shy hubby just said NO outright. Maybe with time passing I should ask again too.

    Sounds like fun. My DH and I took ballroom dance lessons years ago and had a blast! Been long enough now that I have forgotten how and would love to do it again. Glad you're enjoying them.

    Awesome on the dance lessons. I think we all go through a burned out stage and slack offf on everything.

    That's great! I would love dancing lessons. Hope your PC has some salvageable parts. When my laptop crashed several months back I was a mess. Set up one of our PC's (we have a few) and made do with it. I was so happy to have the laptop fixed. Hope that never happens again.
