Cute Little Perky Dance Teacher: And then I need you to flibber flabber for eight beats, then switch and do it on your right, then you're going to blippity blab for eight beats while rolling your wrists down for a count six. Make sense?
Whole Class: Yup!
Me: Um.... *brain 'splode*
CLPDT: Let's try it!
Whole Class: *executes perfectly*
Me: *falls down*
Switch "Dance" with "Kickboxing" and you have me at my class last week. D'oh.
Fell down, huh?
The first time I took step aerobics I kicked myself in the ass. I should have *known* that dance was a bad idea.
Just last week I stepped on my veil and found myself on lying on the floor, laughing hysterically.
I should hire myself and my veil "routine" out to people in need of cheering up.
Dude, Steph, we ought to have padded workout rooms. Really. With nice soft floors. Plus, we're having to do this partner dance and it is seriously only a matter of time before I accidentally smack my partner in the head.
I am always so impressed that you kickbox.. that's so damn cool. :)
We did partner-y stuff (no contact) last week at kickboxing and I was totally turned around. Durr.
I don't think it's that impressive, but I am still pretty proud of it - it makes me sound a lot more hardcore than I really am. :)
I love your mom. :D And you, but that's a given.
omg all the dancing and the exercise and lord do you ever kick butt.
I have pink and grey yoga pants, Melly. Shhh, tell no one.
I've got a new dance class starting tonight and I could *not* be more tickled.
Oh yes you could. *demonstrates*
My mom is so the cutest. She's so wee and yet so fierce. And she was SO pissed off that I hadn't returned her calls. I got in this morning and there were messages like "Are you dead? Are you in a ditch? Do you still love your mother?" Twit.
Do you like your yoga pants? Wherefor did you get them?
You should see her melly- she is the cutest patootiest evah!!!! Of course I didn't tell her that... She is J-lo'ing in them too.. Bootylicious indeed --...
Melly. :( I fell asleep at 3 yesterday and when I woke up at 6, I flipped out because I knew I wasn't going to make it to Belly Dancing AGAIN. Why is this so hard for me? I am such a loser, I'm sorry. :(
I meant to tell you this earlier but I spaced.. they've closed practices until after the show in April..so you're off the hook. ;)
If I do a random drop-in class somewhere though, I'm totally kidnapping you. :)
Bah. Actually, that kind of sucks! I wanted to come, believe it or not. ;) Oh well. You bettah believe I'll be there in April or to any random drop-in class that you do, though!
I'm glad you had a good weekend! *smacks your bum discreetly*
you are the most productive of mellies omg. *in awe of you*
*rubs your sore muscles*
Oh, and the elbows, I'd say you're probably overextending if they're popping. Don't straighten your arms - I'd leave a 20-30 degree bend in them. The important part is to fully bend them, and leave the extending for tricep curls.
And mine pop on the machine, so I tend to avoid it. Not comfortable!
(Suddenly I can't wait until I have time to get back to the gym. Eeee!)
Dude.. really? That rocks. They've been popping at about the 5 or 10 degree bend on the left and at full extension/rebend on the right.. I'd been trying to compensate by not curling up too much (though I'm not sure why I thought that would fix it) but I'll try not extending all the way and just making sure I curl all the way up instead. Because I'm doing seperate work for my triceps so no reason to gild the lily there.
Thanks babe! (oh, and my instructor was telling a story last night about how the last two times she's gone out to do a veil solo at a club someone's been standing on her veil.. so.. I figure you and me and our supid veil tricks? We're just saving someone else the trouble. :D )
We're just one-woman shows. :)
It's about 55° in my office. I'm wearing a shawl. Everybody on the entire development team is pissing me off today. And my low carb wrap that I attempted to eat for lunch was totally gross.
I'm wearing. a. shawl. The Spinster Squad will be here shortly to induct me into the hall of fame and present me with my gold tipped cane and orthopedic oxfords.
I'll post pictures of the ceremony. You'll laugh. you'll cry. It will become a part of you.
