    Thanks miss shimmy!

    I take a one-hour class and then rehearse for 2 hours on Wednesdays; rehearse for ~3 hours on Saturday, and teach Beginners on Sunday for one hour.

    On top of that I dance at home whenever I can, do 15-minute sets of weights in front of the TV a couple times a week, and if I have time, I go to the gym and run.

    Also, my school is really big, so it takes me 10-15 minutes to get from one class to the other.

    The diet is going well, I've "cheated" a few times, but I get back on my feet and keep going. It's worth it!

    I'm almost a pants size down. For awhile I've had to take my jeans out of the washer and stretch the waist out and let them hang dry so they're all stretched. But now I can wear them straight out of the dryer It's so nice to wear toasty warm jeans! I've noticed my tummy is alot flatter in front. Rather than just being round all over. It's neat My schedule is usually Rachel Brice, Fat Chance Belly Dance, and some Callanetics one day, then take the next day off, then the all of those the day after. Fun fun fun. Maybe I'll take pictures one of these days
    Miss Shimmy: How much harder is Super Callanetics?? Looking AMAZING by the way!!
    Scimitar Moon: Gorgeous!
    Great job everybody!!!!

    hi sweetkeane ,you have the right attitude and it will show in your dance,be patient with yourself,it will come,I cannot wait to read of your progress,keep me posted won't you?

    ah alipies,you have simular routine to me!!!yey!! how many hours of callan have you done now?
    supercallanetics,yes its harder,more variations,it burns baby!!!!but its also very satisfying if you feel ready to step up onto that next level.
    callan says that you need to have done at least ten hours of normal,and i would agree.
    let me know how ya go!

    okies...off to bed for me after an hour of supercallan.

    goodnight for now,happy dancing xxxx

    It sure does Ahhh. The yoga gets so tiring! That locust pose kills me! Oh I'm sure the sneezing helps, haha. That's not so strange about the collar bone, they're neat. I have little tiny collar bumps, haha, not much to be proud of, but someday... I remember reading in a magazine about people putting body glitter on their collar bones to play them up.
    That's neat about your face changing too I've noticed mine change a little bit too. I love little suprise things like that

    That's so awesome, Miss Shimmy - congrats! And collarbones aren't so strange... they can look really elegant.

    I haven't noticed much of a difference in clothing sizes (because I only really dance for 2 1/2 hours a week, on average), but I have noticed an all-over toning of the body. Goodbye cellulite, hello abs! My arms are stronger, too, and I feel like I have better posture, more confidence and walk with more grace. It's slow, but it's steady, and I'm happy with it.
