Best Laid Plans…

Day 80 in my journey to join up with my favorite mouse, Mickey

Confession time again: I did not dance when I got home yesterday.  I barely walked when I got home yesterday.  It was a crap day!  Everything I touched turned to ashes.  It was a difficult day at work.  Then I preheated the oven last night to cook my brown rice and mushroom casserole.  When the casserole was ready for the oven, I slipped it inside and promptly turned my oven off.  Of course, I didn’t realize I had done this until about 45 minutes later when I went to give it a stir.  ARGH!  x#2@t*s!m=%!!!  (Think Charlie Brown swear-speak!)  So we had dinner an hour late last night.  I was in such a bad mood when I got home, that I stress ate my banana with almond butter and some Skinny Pop popcorn, then I sat and cursed the darkness.

I know what you’re thinking.  “If you had danced, it would have improved your mood and beaten back some of the stress.”  I know…I know, but I was too PO’d to do the right thing.  Does that ever happen to you?  The good news is I didn’t stress eat candy and chips.  That is progress.

Today’s plan is to try again.  I want to dance today.  So no excuses.  I’ve planned a quick and easy dinner (Salmon filets, a Starbuck’s brown rice salad, with a cup of Mexican bean soup).  I can dance with abandon, and shake what my momma gave me.  🙂

Dancing Queen

Day 79 in my dance toward Disney

I love to dance!  I was that girl at the 7th grade dances with the spotty complexion, the cat’s-eye glasses who carried around about 30 extra pounds and was at my full height of 5 feet 9 inches, but I was still the first one on the dance floor for every fast tune.   I love to dance!

So my plan for today is to go home, put my dance game on the Wii, and dance away my Monday/workday tension.  (So You Think You Can Dance?…you betcha!)  Dancing seems to do a pretty great job of helping to strengthen my leg muscles.  Plus it just makes me happy!  I dig it!

BTW: I was only asked to dance one slow dance in all of Junior High and High School (Thank you, Pete Stagliano!  Crimson and Clover, over and over…)  But now I have a dream dance partner who danced his way right into my heart.  (Love you, Mikko!)  And props to Dr. Carlson, who ties with my dad, for my favorite polka partner.  🙂
