Hello and welcome to www.femalefirst.co.uk and my exclusive Belly dancing Blog.
This may seem a bit strange, a blog about Belly dancing, but if truth be told, I’ve always been a bit curious about learning the art of belly dancing.
Yes, alright it’s a bit funny thinking of me wiggling my way around my living room trying to tone up, while also trying to look even a tiny bit sexy, as they seem to do naturally on the TV.
But I am what you would call a serial fitness cheat.Ã‚Â I always look for other options to loose weight, rather than just heading to the gym for a long and (painful) work out,Ã‚Â so with 7 weeks to go until Christmas, I’ve decided I need some serious help.
The idea of belly dancing seems like a laugh really, especially if you do it with a bunch of mates and you all make fun of each other, but imagine you and only you in your living room, at night struggling to master the art of shaking your tummy…embarrassing doesn’t even come close.
Especially when you realise your curtain is open and half of your neighbours are having a giggle at your expense. At least I wasn’t dressed up how they were in the DVD, that would have been mortifying! No, not me it’s tracksuit bottoms and a manky t-shirt all the way, but if you find me blogging in a few weeks time on where I can find a belly dancers outfit, you’ll know how good I’m getting!
I’ve only done the introduction so far, so I can’t comment on any weight loss or if I feel more toned because truthfully I feel just the same as always. And what’s more, I don’t plan to diet along with this fitness regime, just to see if fitness alone can really make a difference…
I’ll keep you updated on my progress at the end of the week, until then..
Keep (Belly) Dancing!
