Well the truth is from next week yours truly is going to be giving the belly dancing a go!
As you all know I am determined to lose weight and get fitter however with my back I need to build up slowly and avoid diving in with high impact work outs. A friend of mine has been trying to persuade me to go along and give the belly dancing a go for a while now and after a brief attempt at Zumba on the Wii I decided I had nothing to lose but potentially a lot to gain.
I love dancing but at the minute I just can’t take the strain of a vigorous Zumba work out, belly dancing will be gentler and put less strain on my joints until I get some more weight off and more importantly should be great fun to do.
Now obviously I will do everything I can to avoid any evidence of me shaking anything until only the bits I want to wobble do. I will live in hope of ending up being able to move like one of the most famous hip shakers out there once again.
Although I fear I will look more like Ellen
