Something New~Bellydancing!

I had a GREAT workout with Charles. I did machines, free weights, treadmill, & other forms of torture! Good stuff! I am trying to say focused on my goals while working out. I went to WW today and one message was weight loss is kinda like paying off a credit card if you pay the minimum you eventually pay it off but it will take a lot longer same with weight loss you will lose but don't expect more than minimum results. I am just getting back into my workout groove and I needed to hear that. I needed to be reminder that this is a lifestyle and not a diet, therefore I need to do what I need to do and can maintain over a lifetime.

In other news Socarobics was cancelled its Caribana in Canada so I am guessing that's where the teacher was :-)
A/w we had a Bellydancer as a subsitute! What an awesome class! All core training and a good cardio workout! I am going to plan a Girls Night In for some friends and have come over and teach a class! It was wonderful!

  1. Cylia, I am so happy to hear you are so motivated to work out. Great job. Keep up the good work. It's funny, one of my former colleagues sent me a message this week on facebook asking me if I did a marathon. I told her no, it was a triathlon. Then she writes back and says the following:

    "Congratulations on being so conditioned. I am truly jealous. I am currently dealing with over weight with inability to burn it off due to back and knee problems. I use run a lot; I truly miss being healthy."

    And I respond "thanks. you can still be healthy. the elliptical machine or even the stationary bike should be gentle on your knees and back. and then there is diet. let me know how it works out."

    And of course, I didn't hear back. And I share this to say, there is absolutely no reason why we can't be healthy. Enough with the excuses and get it done!
