Thanks for stopping by! Let's get sweaty and figure out this whole parenting thing together!

A little less running, a lot more dancing

You know how there are certain phrases that get songs stuck in your head? That’s what the title of this post did for me. I can’t explain it, but now Elvis’ “A little less talking, a lot more action” is running through my head (and now yours I guess). The first half of December has been pretty busy for me. One of my best friends got married last weekend so we were in Miami. And seriously it was humid as all hell. Reminded me why I adore seasons so much.

My body was just not ready for that kind of running. I hate hot humid running more than anything. I can take the cold because I can pile on the layers, but I feel like the heat just sucks my will power.

In prepping for the weekend Fi and I had packed our running gear, discussed the goal of running and even set alarms after the rehearsal dinner to make it happen. We went out for what was supposed to be a 4 miler and ended up being a maybe 2 miler. It was AWFUL.

Thank god we had a night of dancing ahead of us (yes this was coupled with many drinks…but when you see how sweaty I was I am pretty sure it was canceled out). I love to dance and only really do it when we are out on the town every once in a blue moon.

It got me thinking about potentially trying Zumba or one of those other dance fitness classes. The thing I hate about those classes though is the feeling that you just can’t keep up because everyone else has been there forever and knows every move.

Any suggestions on getting over that hump?
