I decided to go out to a club with some of my friends on Saturday night. It was a lot of fun … I always enjoying having a couple of drinks and dancin’ the night away.
I take my nightclub dancing very seriously. I’m not one of those people who needs a few drinks in them to get out there and have fun. I probably look ridiculous but that doesn’t matter. I’m there to have a good time We were at a country bar … with a lot of country music, people in cowboy hats and boots … and ample amounts of two stepping.
I left my cowboy boots at home though.
Have you ever two stepped before? It’s one of my favorite dances – but that’s because I’m a country girl at heart and have serious amounts of love for anything sang by Keith Urban/Tim McGraw/Garth Brooks/Blake Shelton/anyone in a cowboy hat.
I danced with several guys (who were all only mediocre – like I said, I take my dancing seriously), and then another fellow came up to me. He asked if I wanted to dance, and I said yes. It’s very rare I’ll say no to someone when they ask me.
I SHOULD HAVE SAID NO.
The poor guy didn’t have any idea what he was doing, plus he was leading with the wrong hand. I was trying to adjust to it … he was moving really fast … I was definitely struggling, but was trying to be a good sport about it.
Then, he decided to dip me … and dropped me. On my back. On the dance floor.
I would guess this was around 1 AM by this time – and you know what dance floors are like by that time of the night. Slimy, sticky, sometimes there is broken glass. And there I was laying in it (with a bruised elbow sustained from the fall, I might add).
Good times Oh well, I survived.
Do you like to dance? My friends can’t stand me sometimes because I’ll drag them right out into the middle of the dance floor against their will. Whoopsie!
Saturday ended up being a spectacularly late night (I think I went to bed around 4? Yikes!). So yesterday I was beyond useless. A complete write-off. I had originally intended on heading to the gym. That got bumped on my schedule for this:
Slipper boots + yoga capri pants (anyone else LOVE hanging out in exercise clothes?!).
I did a yoga workout Saturday afternoon for arms and shoulders, and ended up being quite stiff and sore yesterday. Plus, I consider dancing in high heels for 3 hours a pretty great lower body workout Or at least that’s what I told myself.
I’m back on the usual exercise train today! This morning’s workout will be a hilly 25 minute bike ride (I don’t usually worry about how many miles) and then some arm and shoulder work. I signed up for the Tone It Up! Bikini Series, and that kicked off yesterday. I’ve decided I’m not going to follow the plan word for word (even though I love those girls and they’re geniuses), but use it more as a loose guideline for the next little while. I figured it can’t hurt to try to incorporate different routines into my regular workouts … I’m just not going to force myself to follow it everyday.
What is your workout today?
