A Better Week
Monday, July 11, 2011
After the nastiness last week, this week seems to be getting off to a much better start. I started out this Sunday with a private dance lesson- because of finances I can't do too many of these, but after the garage sale last weekend I decided to treat myself to some me time. Can I just say how wonderful this instructor is! She rocks! It was my first private and it was good to go over some of the movements that she does a bit differently than previous teachers- Her breakdown of the Camel was quite illuminating. She also wants me to work on posture- since I am so overweight I am extremely self conscious and lacking in confidence. She called me out on it (wouldn't the therapist be happy) so I really have been trying to focus all day on keeping an open & confident posture- not an easy task for me.
Today I was able to rouse myself from slumber and get my Jillian Backside workout in. I certainly hate to get up, but it puts me in a much better frame of mind when I do. It helps to get finished with my least favorite part of the exercise routine. Here's hoping to getting many shimmies in this week....
