Good morning everyone!
Last night I had FUN on You Tube! lol. I was watching Dancing With The Stars (can you believe it was the first episode I’ve ever watched??) and I got inspired.
I said to myself, “I would love to learn how to dance!”
I used to be in ballet and figure skating when I was younger and I have always loved artistic expression through dance. It channels my creative side. :)
So I decided to go on You Tube and see if there were any instructional videos on various kinds of dance.
Sure enough, I found a fun introductory Salsa video!
I think I am hooked. I did this video about 3 times last night! It is really fun and easy to pick up the steps. I find counting the numbers also helps too.
It was a great workout too- got my heart pumping a bit and a smile on my face! I also did ab exercises last night (boat, plank, side planks, leg lifts) and a few yoga poses. I have definitely noticed more core strength since I have been doing more ab and yoga work the past couple weeks! Hopefully this will help prevent me from getting injured again. :)
I am going to look for more dance videos today. :) I would love to eventually take a class or something. Eric is not keen on the idea of participating though! I guess I will have to find a new dancing partner! lol.
I had another successful creation for Glo Bakery last night!
I made Vegan Carrot Muffins
They turned out really good. They are definitely keepers. I have a couple ideas on how to modify them next time I make them too. :)
I adapted the recipe found here. I removed all the oil, refined sugars, etc. I used applesauce, natural cane sugar, WWPF, agave nectar, soy yogurt, etc.
Hubby liked them too! He will be bringing them to work for the coworker taste test. The Apple Cake I made the other day was a big hit. :) One of his coworkers is going to be buying a dozen of my powerbars from me each week. He told Eric yesterday, “I want them NOW!!!” lol.

Well I am off to get cracking on work! I want today to be much better than yesterday’s interruptions! I’m planted at my desk and I don’t intend on breaking until about 1-2 for lunch. Well, except maybe for 1 small salsa video on You Tube. lol.
Today’s Question: Have any of you ever taken dance lessons? What was it for and for how long?
