BodyJam Tuesday! This was a very special occasion. For couple of reasons. First, I don’t usually do Jam on Tuesday. It’s a Monday-night-magic-thing. Tuesday is gym day. It feels odd to be home and think that “crap it only Monday night, oh wait, it’s Tuesday!”. Not that I’m stuck with my routines or anything…
Second reason is that my boyfriend decided to come too. First time ever at BodyJam, and pretty much first time doing anything that has a choreography. He did well! Didn’t bump into me or the walls or anything like that. And he liked the class 🙂 I sold the class to him by saying there’s a lot of moves for upper body, and that makes the world of good for person who works in front of computer screen half a day. And I said that he’s a coward if he doesn’t at least try. Fair is not my middle name 😉 But as I’m such a kind girlfriend, I took him shopping afterwards. He went looking for running shoes, I entertained myself with my phone (a game of Monopoly).
BodyJam is great fun. This release 64 is really tough, it’s not difficult but I burned about 600kcal and my max heart rate was over 180. It’s easiest just turn off your mind and just go with the music and party. When I first started going to Jam, I was really self-conscious. I still am. I pick my place so that I can’t see myself from the mirror and just dance away. I don’t really pay attention to others, how they dance (unless they are a) really good or b) in my way or c) somehow annoying (like 2 teenaged girls who kept stopping in the middle of choreography to chat…). I’m pretty confident that others don’t really pay too much attention to me, so I just go ahead and dance like I’m the superstar on a music video. Turn off your mind, and just dance.
What have you been up today?
