This gentleman is such a strong, powerful dancer and a wonderful teacher. It felt fabulous to move this way again. I lasted an hour of the 1hour and 15 minutes of the class before my knee and left foot started to speak out. That was more hopping/jumping than I have done in some time.
I do wish I were able to go more often but work has been getting in the way of my desires as of late. I hate it when that happens. Necessarily evil. Ha-ha!
To exercise and make it a part of your life, you need to find something that makes you happy. Something you enjoy, that brings joy to you. For me, thats dance. I couldn't get the smile off my face. While dancing, sitting and watching the end of the class, the drive home, in my bath after I got home.
When you find what makes that happen, you'll find it much easier to continue on your path to health and happiness. I even have a back-up, water exercise.
Our body's are machines. Amazingly wonderful machines that need to produce to continue. That means it has to move.
Just like eating is important to survival, movement is also survival. I can't just get on a treadmill and go. I just want to scream but when necessary, I will get on 1 rather than just sit still. But it helps when some hard-driving rock music is playing.
My mentor Dr. Burdenko has been at work for the past week, training some more individuals in his work. It's so good to see him again. I didn't get to see him last year as I was in the hospital getting my new knee. I knew he wasn't too happy about my getting it but I think he approves of my up & doing what I used to do again.
It's nice to have some fellow workers involved in this amazing work. It does really change how you see people move & train. I know it's made me a much better trainer.
Well, gotta walk the pooches before work. Keep dancin!
