Day 136 – The Latest…

Why do I keep starting my blog titles with Day #so and so? Well, at day 142, it will be June 1st so this is the the number of days from when I started this blog up again. There’s no other rhyme or reason and after June 1st, I may or may not continue the practice. I hope that answers the question for you. Now on to other more important things.

Sun. I love the sun. I can’t say I’m a sun goddess because I believe to meet that definition, I would have to live in Malibu and walk around as a size 2 in a teeny, weeny bikini. However, I am solar-powered and need to lie in the sun to recharge every so often. While many would tout the cancer-causing effects of the sun, I would tout the fact I’m less bitchy and far more fulfilled on my vitamin D requirements. The goal today is to grab some of that vitamin D because I just like a better attitude and a little less pastiness. And if you need a few other reasons to catch a ray…

“…it has been proven that getting sufficient sunlight aids in preventing chronic ailments such as seasonal affective disorder (SAD), osteoporosis, mental depression, type 2 diabetes, and cancers affecting the bladder, breasts, cervix, colon, ovaries, prostrate, and the stomach.

Competitor Kirstie Alley – not so much. However, with all of the dancing and training, Kirstie has whittled away 38 inches of her body from when she started. 38. That’s a big number and rumor has it she’s dropped approximately 60 pounds to wear almost an American size 6 and . I’m seriously wondering if I need to start dancing for a few hours every day… I’m willing to do so. Meanwhile….

I’m breaking out of my well-padded comfort zone and trying a bunch of new classes at the Amarillo Town Club. They are changing the class schedules in a couple of weeks, but I have to say that at the moment, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE yoga. I’m not a fan of group exercise, but for that, I am willing to bear with it. Other classes I’m going to be trying out include the Les Mills “Body Pump” and “Body Step” and maybe even “Body Combat.” I’m also planning to test my coordination (HA!) with Zumba and even things out with pilates. Time to try something new and different…. and time to get back to work. More later from the flip side.
