I love ballet. I love how it looks, feels, what it does for your body...it's beautiful. Little known fact about me...I used to be heavily involved in ballet. Most of my childhood I was in ballet classes. I even took a class in college. When I was in high school, our instructor took us to Houston, where an examiner from the Royal Academy of Dance in England was there to watch us go thru exams and grade us. I received a grade of "highly commended," which was pretty darn good back then. I loved dancing en pointe (those hard toe shoes) and yeah, my feet were tough and strong. I miss ballet a lot. And so, I'm going to work this workout DVD back into my routine. For me, exercise needs to be something fun and not really feel like exercise. So ballet and hip hop (yes) fit! I won't be wearing a tutu or pointe shoes, though. And it will be a long time until I can do that cover photo stretch.
And with this blog entry, I'm trying to keep myself accountable. :) Taking better care of myself and not putting me last.
