Fitness Friday: Hip-Hop and Hopes Giveaway


Last night as I stood in front of the mirror at dance class, I stopped seeing what was in front of me. I started to see what I could be.

This year, I decided to revisit one of my true loves: dance. I signed up for ballet and tap, and then I heard about an adult Hip Hop class they were starting, mainly for fun and exercise. Most of the women in the class are moms, and over 30, so it’s my crowd. However, there’s nothing more potentially awkward than a 30-something mom trying to “get jiggy with it” after 15 years out of practice!

I looked at myself in the mirror, and thought, “I really could get my groove back. I was pretty good in my day.” And then a thought went through my head that I can only attribute to my new-found involvement in the WiiFit Mommiis project…

“I might even look kinda hot after a few months with the Wii Fit!”

It’s not all about looks, but the thought of being comfortable in my own skin gives me hope for a lot of things: my new TV and Vlogging ventures, dance class (being on stage – ack!), not DREADING the beach every year! More energy for my career and kids, you name it!

So are you with me? I’ll be posting a Fitness Friday here every Friday to track my progress, as well as struggles, and you can join in at WiiFit Mommiis! Read up on the Six WiiFit bloggers, join the forum, and Link up with Mr. Linky as you blog your journey!
