You have heard me mention my friend Georgie before?….. well I have! She is also my next door neighbour. She is 10yrs younger than me….but age means nothing when friendship is involved! I like to think I am her older, more mature, mentor kind of friend. One to whom she aspires to be one day and one whom allows her to worship me in a non kinky kind of way!!! However, I’m pretty damn sure that’s not how she sees it!!! ha, ha, ha!!!!!!!!! It is the best friendship. We live close, but not in each other’s pockets. She has her friends, I have mine and sometimes the two shall meet. We walk most days together after work and vent to each other or just cackle for the whole walk. She walks Harry and I walk Scarlett. Harry adores her and I think he secretly wishes he was her dog!! Georgie is on the fitness and weight loss trail as well and is doing a farking fantastic job too might I add!! Anyhooooooo………………
Georgie says to me the last week, “they have Latin dancing classes starting up. I went on Monday and it was great. Bit of a workout, but fantastic fun. You should come with me next week!” I say, “That sounds great. I love music and dancing. It would make a nice change to walking and I am just not into the gym. I’ll be there.” Quite simply……………… I was conned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Farking hell………bit of a workout??? That is the most exercise in one go I have done since training at the Police Academy 20 odd years ago!!!!!!! It was a good mixed class though. Oldies like me, inbetweenies, young ones…….about 16 people I think. The dance teachers Mum was there. She was called Maureen. So, Maureen, Georgie and I kind of stood together and off we went!! ….. or did we just “go off'”? I have to say I haven’t laughed so much in bloody ages. That Latin stuff is harder than it looks. The full length mirrors freaked me out to start with but I got so busy trying to watch the teacher and laughing at George and Maureen that I forgot about them. I might add that they were laughing at me too!!!!! God, we had the sweat pouring out of us. My face was bright red and I was pretty sure I should have rung the medics and had them on standby before class! I kept stuffing up the steps and getting left behind………but so did everyone else, so it wasn’t so bad 🙂
We kept putting each other off our “moves” and cacking ourselves for the whole class. We would push each other out of the way on the side moves. I would look at Maureen and she would laugh and keep blocking my way so I had to get tough on her and say…..”Moooorreeeeennnnne!!!, stop trying to make me look bad you bitch!!” George was the same on the other side……. I could tell she was sooooo jealous of my fluid moves!
I have to say, being that bit bigger than most I think I had an advantage. Because in the shake your booty bits all the skinny girls had to work really hard and shake their bodies like a dog just out of the water……but not me…….I only had to shake it once and then the rest just kept shaking on it’s own!!!!!! Like when you throw a stone in the water and the ripples fan out………that was me!! lol, lol One good shake and a hip swing and off the rest of me went! Although, I think I was more wobbling it than wriggling it!!!!! I need to get some sports bras if I am going to keep up this caper too!!!!! I mean, there I was just finished a “shakin’ it” bit of the dance and then you stomp and stand still……………but my tits were still throwing their own party 🙂 The “poke your chest out girls” bit……………no probs………I was there for that one!! Ah well, I will never be in danger of breaking my nose if I fall, or drowning ….. not with these built in floaties 🙂
I am just able to move without wincing today. But it is a good pain! I found a Latin music CD I knew I had around here and have been playing that while I do the housework. Georgie….. hurry up and get home from work………I can’t remember what comes after the “stick your tits out and flip your leg back bit”!!!! We sooooo need to get some practice in before next Monday!!!! We are going to be stars I tell you,,,,STARS!!!!!!
What have I noticed weight wise this week?? Well, my jeans are heaps looser. I can fit my mobile phone in the pocket now and forget it is there!! Before it just squeezed in there and kept pinching me. I couldn’t put the phone and my car keys in there at the same time…..now I can! My clothes are all getting comfortably loose and I have started wearing a couple of shirts to work that pulled at the front too much before. You know, the old button strain and gap thing was going on with them. I still feel really good and can’t believe that I did a Latin dance class three weeks out from surgery!! I weigh in again on Friday…..I will post that in the Goddess Graph as usual. Getting excited because I can see the change starting to happen with my weight…….
Bye for now Hornbags!!
