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?
