Dance Fever

‘I recently had my annual physical examination, which I get once every seven years, and when the nurse weighed me, I was shocked to discover how much stronger the Earth’s gravitational pull has become since 1990’.  ~Dave Barry

I recently visited my doctor for an exam and when she asked me “how much do you exercise”; Well, talk about being embarrassed!!!  I used to walk 4 miles a day” I said, “Uh huh” she said,  “and what about now” she asked! Wellll….

Those who know me know that used to swing dance 2-3 nights a week; and salsa dance every week; dancing for me has always been my therapy, my freedom from stress. I used to walk from Pierpont to the River on the boardwalk 5 days a week; and take my friends out sailing without taking a full day after to recover from exhaustion. What happened? Yeah age is creeping up, sure. But, mostly I have put on too much weight! I miss walking, I miss dancing and my need for sailing seems to be upstaged by sitting in front of the TV and my laptop!  Can I handle this  challenge?

  1. It’s a matter of putting one foot in front of the other….and yes, you can do this!!

  2. For now, its about getting started with a sail to Catalina coming up!

  3. you go girl.. it took me a while, but I got to my goal losing 47 lbs (being in the hospital took off the last 10 lbs) but it took just making a determined decision and not letting anything or anyone deter me. Like you, I love food and I cut off a lot of things because I knew I couldn’t do it otherwise. I also used a food diary to hold myself accountable. This also helped-“Nothing tastes as good as feeling thin feels” (not that I’m “thin” mind you, but my BMI is now “normal”) I KNOW you can do it Ferne!! xo miss you
