My exercise in lieu...

Okay - so I decided to give my muscles a break from the torture training of Jillian. Instead, I thought I'd remove the cardio dance video that I got from Avon a while ago. First of all (not to diss all of you Avon reps out there) but that should have been my first warning. It's called Dance for Weight Loss.

Now, I would assume that anyone who's buying a DVD based on weight loss will NOT have a dancer's ability to remember complex choreography nor their natural ability to pull it all together on a quick 1-2-3-4 count.

At first, you do these moves, and they seem really easy...here's a video (it's in Spanish but you get the idea)...this is how they fool you. You do these moves, they're fun, and you think "wow, I can dance." But these moves that they're showing in this video are just the practice ones. You then double time them. Now again, reading this sounds easy...but I dare you -- do that clip! I dare you to pull it off! Then, I want you people to know that you have a choice at the beginning of the video -- either do 30 or 60 minutes. Try that people!

Now -- this is all rather tongue in cheek here. If I were alone, I'd chuck this video, because quite honestly, it's crap. However, Iman and I did this together, and the laughs we shared and the time spent together was totally worth every penny.

Bed time -- Need to prepare for Jillian tomorrow. My mom has been reading my blog and noticed that I've been using cans of kidney beans for weights. Since I apparently motivated her to go and get the video, she has gone out and punished me by buying me a set of proper weights -- I'm sure she'll get a laugh when she gets to work on Monday and reads about my sore, pathetic little arms being sore! Love ya, Mom!!

Awww...I wish my mom read my blog. She hates the internet!

I know my mom wouldn't read it if she didn't have to use a computer at work. I have it set up to automatically email her my posts. Otherwise, nope, she never would!

Please comment, please. It makes me feel good, and well -- a woman just likes to feel good every now and then. I may not agree with your comment, it may even tick me off and make me want to delete it...but comment anyway and make my day.
