Yes, I've gotten in touch with an old flame. I plan to have many clandestine encounters with this former love of mine.

We ignited our passion way back in 2007. For some reason, our love fizzled out after a while. My husband knew about this special relationship of mine and he supported it wholeheartedly. He actually encouraged it, and said that he saw how happy it made me! He remarked on how refreshed, renewed, rejuvinated, and exhilirated I looked after my daily rendez-vous!

Here you go. Straight from the vault, where I've kept the memories hidden since 2007! My old flame is none other than...Hip Hop Abs/Yoga Booty Ballet!!!

Sadly, it's true. I am an addict. Ever since Thanksgiving, my student and I have been hardcore working out. There are a few gyms on the Island, but we're so busy that I don't have time to commute to and from the gym. I have been doing Slim in 6 and Turbo Jam on and off for the past few years. They're excellent workouts, but I needed something new. I had received Yoga Booty Ballet and Hip Hop Abs with my Turbo Jam order, but never even thought of opening them. Here are some promotional photos of Yoga Booty Ballet and Hip Hop Abs. It's not as easy as it looks, people!

For some reason, I had the urge to see what it was all about. I think I was turned off because I am by no means a ballet dancer. I'm not graceful enough and I am in serious lack of poise. My mother enrolled me in jazz ballet when I was a kid. I took one lesson and then decided it wasn't for me. I'm not a girlie girl by any means. I'm also not very coordinated. I've got two left feet and can't seem to follow steps. I took a Hip Hop class when I lived in Toronto a few years ago. I swear, I looked like a chicken on crack. I'm embarrassed to say that I just don't have any sense of coordination.

I do love music and I do love dancing though. I love dancing to music where I can "feel" the music and follow the rhythm. That's why I used to love going to clubs that play reggae, calypso, soca, etc. Just let your body go with the flow!

There, in its original plastic wrap, lay my Yoga Booty Ballet/Hip Hop Abs DVD. It was time to check this baby out. We popped in the DVD and oh my goodness! It was like instant love! I wanted more and more and more! The workout was hard, but so much fun! I am officially addicted! I ask myself if I'm addicted to the workout or if I'm addicted to the feeling I get after the workout.

Oh, I don't have to worry about looking like a chicken on crack
with all of the fancy footwork and gyrating body parts, because I'm in my own house! I keep my student and my husband entertained. That's for sure!
**I'm finding that even with dance class, Zumba, walking up and down the highway after work, and eating healthy, it's still not enough. Maybe doing all of the above and Yoga Booty Ballet/Hip Hop Abs might help even more?
