Y2 Day 99: Sexy Dancy ME

I've mentioned that I usually look like a hobo at zumba — oversize men's tank top + stretched-out stirrup pants that I wore through two pregnancies (with the waistband under my stomach bump — I'm not that big now!) — though I did invest in some good Spandexy pants a while back, and I like wearing those, and I do have two tightish zumba shirts. So tonight I took a deep breath and went all tight — tight pants, tight shirt.

It is definitely a different feeling!

And it's my last class with Sexy Dancy Nancy for a while; she won't be back till March. She knows that my all-time favorite zumba song and routine is "Echa Pa'lante" from this movie's soundtrack (it's a great song, and our routine is smokin'!!) — ". . . so," she says, "in honor of our last class, since this is Lady's favorite song, I'm gonna ask her to come up here and lead it with me."


At the Italian Spitfire's class I'm definitely the class clown, but I keep a lower profile in this class. I was completely flabbergasted!

I thought about gracefully demurring — you know, for a full two seconds — but then I skipped up to the front and led the song. Why the heck not? Truly, you cannot have vanity and be a big girl doing zumba. I think of myself as an inspirational model for other big girls. I am the freaking Mother Teresa of zumba. Yes. That is I.

It was total fun. And when I was done, Sexy Dancy said, referring to me, "Sexy, huh?" Which I found ironic, given her name and all. My version was sexier?! Very cool.

Other stuff happened today, but I've got 11 minutes to take a shower and then climb under my covers to drink coffee and watch Glee with Mimosa. Gotta move!

It was a great day!

(And despite my constant consumption of Trader Joe's Christmas cookies and near-daily hooch, my weight is staying down!! It must be all my muscle mass.)

    And I can't believe I missed the WHOLE THING!

    Oh, I HATE my life right now!!

    1. Oh my honey! It's almost over!! (The bad schedule, I mean - not your life.) The entire week of winter break will be devoted to Husband-Wife loving time. I will wear many tight outfits and zumba for you! Because I am all about the giving.

      And maybe you could work on cleaning your office a little... :)


  4. I laughed when I read your last line. It reminded me of a good friend who has long moved far away. She was conservative in most things so I perked up when she shared that what gets her in the mood is sparkling clean surroundings. Her husband gets that twinkle in his eye when she goes on a cleaning whirl in the bedroom. Candles and flowers are nice, but a pristine room with fresh sheets - the best! Who knows what thrills that decluttered office and dust free desk will bring?

    1. Who knows, indeed? But I'd sure like to find out!!!
