hikin’ & dancin’

Last night my 2 very lovely friends, Michelle & Lisa, took me on a hike along the Bonneville Shoreline trail for my birthday.  I was a little worried since I had climbed a billion stairs that morning but it turned out to be just what I needed to keep my joints loose and get the extra calorie burn I needed for the day.  It was a fun little hike and I think it would be the perfect way to do something active but relaxing on a Sunday afternoon.  I’m happy that Chelle shared the trail with me and that she and Lisa were such good company.

This morning I got up around 5:15 and headed to the gym to get in some time on the treadmill before our class.  Alissa had arranged for an instructor to come teach our group a Hip Hop aerobics class at 6.  I was aware that I lack certain dance skillz but wowzers! was I bad-ad-ad!  I’m waving good-bye to that dream of staring in a MTV hip hop video.  Bye, bye.  Still, the instructor, Michelle, was a blast and the Hip Hop Hustle class was really fun.  We learned a lot of dance moves and then she had us put them together into dance combinations.  It’s funny how the stuff I couldn’t get was pretty easy but when the moves were in a fast paced dance combination I was hopeless.  I also was waaaayyyy too self conscious to throw in much hip thrusting, booty shaking and gangsta attitude into my “dancing”.  I did however sweat bullets and had a lot of fun.  I wish this was a class that was offered regularly.  It is something that I might even be convinced to pay the $50 a month required to maintain my membership at the Sports Academy for.

    Those activities both sound like fun. Call me some Sunday afternoon when you feel like a hike. I don’t think I’ve ever done that trail.

    You mean you’re not getting on the hot tamale train?! I’d watch So You Think You Can Dance if that loud woman wasn’t there, I get sick of her just watching the ads for the show! Hang in there no one is filming this stuff.
