Guess what? Last Friday night I went for my first belly-dancing class!
YEP!!! You read it right - "B-E-L-L-Y-D-A-N-C-I-N-G"!
I have no excuse whatsoever NOT to join the class, because -
(i) It is held just two doors away from Mak's house in PJ.
(ii) It is held on Friday nights, 8:00pm - 9:15pm, i.e. during the kids' Kelas Mengaji (Hmmmm...what a dichotomy - kids mengaji, and Mommy goes belly dancing! HAHAHA!)
(iii) Ayah normally finishes his clinic after 9:00pm on Fridays anyway.
At least all of us will have our own thing to do during that time, and I would feel less guilty leaving the kids at home!
(iv) Ayah has given the green light - in fact he's encouraging me to go! (Hmmm...exclusive private performance on the agenda?! HAHAHA!)
(v) I am in dire need to join a fun but effective sweat-producing workout.
And it WAS FUN, and boy...did I sweat! It's not as easy as it looks, especially when you have to do a "double/triple hip"! Errr....the next day - I sakit pinggang... Hopefully after a few lessons my muscles would relax and I would be more agile, insya Allah.
I look forward to the next session, and I also hope to start going to CF again this week. The last time I went for a proper workout at the gym was in November 2006 - before leaving for my 7 months Newcastle stint! Horror...horror... Needless to say, I could feel the kilos coming back...(with a vengeance) Eherks...
Wish me luck, guys! I hope my will-power will carry me through...
