On the IPOD "Firedance" From the show Riverdance
I want to start out by saying that I had an amazing visit today with one of my best friends, Tiffany. She has amazing strength and has been a wonderful friend to me. I wish her the best of luck in anything she sets her mind to. She deserves it! XOXO
After our visit I headed to Nia... Today we did firedance, it is a routine that is pretty much like riverdance with a little more spirituality. It is fast, hard, and there is a serious amount of footwork. To give you a little back story...In Nia classes there are 3 levels. Level 1 is still a great workout but the moves are modified to make it a little less stressful on the body, level 2 usually includes either a hop or a deeper squat, and level 3 is pretty much all out. I would say I'm normally a level 2. Well today I leaned over to Jan (a great girl in my Nia class) and said," My body wants to be a level 2 today, but my boobs are saying level 1." She turned to me and said, "That's why I have two bras on!"
So at that moment I realized that after a 40+ pound weight loss it is a necessity to buy new smaller sports bras. Unfortunately, it is pretty much the last thing I want to do.... Mainly because a new bra is tighter and a tighter bra means more back fat and more chicken cutlet action in the creases of my arms. Ugh! But it also means if I want level two I can do level 2 without feeling like my breasts are being ripped off.
My little cousin Lindsay asked my aunt a couple weeks ago, "Do you take those off at night?" (referring to her boobs) My aunt just laughed and said, "I wish!" I am by no means saying I would like to give them up forever, but it sure would make working out easier....
Checklist for tomorrow:
Buy new sports bras and contemplate doubling up! :)
