I have cut down on bread and cheese and and and and ... and am feeling the benefit of that ..... now don't laugh but I have started a 'class'.... I could have done pottery, DIY, mechanics for beginners along with a plumbing course.. but no I have chosen belly dancing
My first attempt was last week .. and I was handed a waist scarf full of jingly coins. I learned a 'routine' where I was okay with my feet doing it but add in hands it was a disaster.
At the end of the session the instructor said 'have you done this before?'
I replied 'no'
she said 'but you have such good isolation'
Translated that means the top half of my body moves and the bottom half doesn't and visa versa ... apparently in belly dancing terms this is good... I put it down to having a bad back ..
so I thought yeah I am on a winner here!
Got talking to some gals at the class and asked how long they had been doing this?
One gal replied '6 years' ... SIX YEARS !!
OMG She was as round as she was tall!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
