i'm beat. i just noticed that i'm 1 post away from 80 posts on this blog. . I'll have to think up something special for the next one!! Tonight was a dance night. . and i always find that i'm pretty fatigued a couple of hours after class. Wore my belly dance outfit to class tonight! (i don't take belly dancing classes - yet! -*i'm teaching myself b.dancing* this class I'm referring to is a 'mixed bag' -- lots of variety) and NO i wasn't showing too much skin!! I wore a camisole to cover my belly - cuz i was shy! awwww!!! I did my eye makeup like i saw on one of the nicer tv 'makeover' shows. . It was easy and looked so nice. When i put on the gold-coined head piece i felt like a completely different person!! I should have taken a picture of that!!! duh! another time. . A whole bunch of the girls dressed up - cuz we had many away on Halloween night (taking their kiddies around trick or treating). It was fun. I felt pretty strange going outdoors in the full outfit, wearing flip flops! Every step i took i jingled!!!!*coin hip belt and ankle bracelet with bells* I felt weird driving the van dressed like that!! All i could think as i drove was "Now don't speed, cuz you don't wanna get pulled over and explain this!" What fun it was though, to get all prettied up and dance in my bare feet with 2 gypsies, a hippie, a couple of ladies with feather boas and 'deelie boppers' on their heads, a black and red jumpsuited lady with a cute, red 'flapper' wig. . and a bunch of other wussy girls who didn't dress up at all!! Its way more fun to dance in costume!!! It really is! I don't think i've ever had this much fun, fitness wise anyway. Its a bit intimidating to sign up for something on your own. . but its been very rewarding and I have met many new and wonderful women!! They all seemed quite fascinated tonight with my get up and wanted to know if i could teach them something. . so i taught a couple of the girls how to do 'snake arms' and hip shimmies. They were giggling!!! It was cute.
I continue on non-class days to keep working on 'the moves', instructing myself, with my DVDs; still, its not easy and i have so much to learn, but isn't that life? Its great, isn't it? . . .life, that is.
