Accomplishments: ( in an attempt to make me feel more positive about getting a rude response to a job.. )

  • I finally heard back from the organization I was interested in Volunteering with, turns out they would like me to help with marketing and potentially here on my blog and elsewhere in the community in addition to teaching nutrition classes!! WOOHOO-I have to read through some materials they sent but I am excited!
  • Started My Pre-Packing List (I found this Day of The Week notepad at a craft store recently. I have used it for foods/meals we have that week- but it works well for this too!)

Review of DWS, Latin Cardio:
I liked it! It wasn't a great cardio workout for me- I need to run a good 5-10 miles for that. So for beginners that are looking for a good cardio dance, I would suggest it. I really enjoyed it! I did the warm up and then all 4 of the dances and then most of the toning workout. I broke a light sweat and was actually confused a couple of times . The mutitasker in me was also baking cookies at the same time, so I had to pause, run in the kitchen, then run back and unpause and start again! I am looking forward to doing it again so that I can get some of my "dance moves" back! Get my "mojo" flowing again if you will. I haven't danced since college and I could tell I was way more rigid and fumbly than I used to be!

Well, the volunteering thing is good news, right!

How come your toes hurt? Do your toes hit the top/front of your sneaks? That used to happen to me, then I got a bigger size shoe.

thanks for the encouragement!

haha... yes, i am pretty sure my toes are smushing against the top front. BUT... I got a size bigger and they messed up my knee.

The weird thing is... its only my right foot... and my right knee hurts when I run in the bigger shoes.

the crappy thing is... they each only have about 500 miles on them..
