just workin' on my fitness


It can't not be good for you, taking dance classes. Any dance classes really. I just got home from a hip hop class, sweaty and tired. I knew it would be a lot of start and stop since it's beginner so I went for a run first and then did the class. I almost backed out at the last minute. So glad I didn't.

You wouldn't believe how stiff and self-conscious I felt in the beginning, but how quickly my body loosened up. It's like magic, and it's not only your body. It just feels good to push your limits a little. Move in ways you'd never move in public [without, at the very least, a bottle of wine].

By the end of it I felt like my ass was separate from my upper body. I'm not convinced I looked a whole lot like Shakira, but I sure felt like it, and if that doesn't put you in a good mood, I don't know what will.
