Last night I went salsa dancing with friends. Fun! My knee started to hurt after a while, so I need to be building up knee strength.

Current interests of mine include:

Latin Dancing

Pruning Fruit Trees

Growing Cooking Greens


Researching Disney Parks!!! (currently have given this up for Lent, isn’t that awesome of a hobby, but I love it)

I’d like to start a knee regimen in the AM. Oh, and that reminds me, I missed my yoga routine this AM. I’m going to do that now.

Good, done. Off to look at knee exercises.

OK, Did that. And decided I should introduce some kind of both knee and hip strengthening an flexiblilty routine to my morning. I can do this during Lent as I’m less taken-up with my Disney Parks research (this is a 10+ hr a week job that I’m no longer doing!)

My hesitation is that I have started and restarted so many programs, it makes me feel kinda like a loser. But that’s “stinkin’ thinkin'” as my hero Stewart Smalley would say. I start and stop stuff all the time just for fun! And cause I get sick of it. Going with my mood is a healthy, natural, fun way to live and I don’t need to apologise to anyone about it.

FOOD FEAR!!!! After holding steady at 155, I have jumped to 158. That feels so scary to me. There are lots of reasons why, but today I want to focus on my knee. I LOVE social dancing. I mean, I really really love it. I truly love social dancing!!!! It’s wonderful to know that. And I need my body to work well to enjoy it, don’t I? Yes, I do. And with a prediliction for wt. gain and joint problems (familial and personal), weight gain is a big deal. The people I know who have done poorly with their joint replacements are overweight. I don’t wanna be in their shoes. I wanna be in dance shoes!
