Line Dancing............



Some years ago MWM and I used to go line dancing every week! Unfortunately because of my knee we had to stop, but it is my dream to return to it once I'm up and running (so to speak).
How it started
I have always loved country music and when I noticed an advert for beginners classes in line dancing at a venue close by I persuaded MWM that we should go. He's not a natural dancer but I was sure he would be able to manage, so he agreed under sufferance.
I can't begin to describe the fun we had from the very first lesson. Of course we started off with a very simple dance 'Elvira' but were all soon in fits of laughter because invevitably some of us turned to the right instead of the left and ended up facing the wrong way. We went every Monday evening for many months and soon became quite proficient at it - even MWM! It must be eight years since I stomped out the dances I came to love - One Step Forward; Haunted Heart; County Line Cha Cha; Tush Push;Cowboy Charleston; Black Coffee; Tropicana Parking Lot; Cajun Skip; so, if/when we do return to it we will probably have to start at beginners again.
It's not only great fun but it's great exercise too, I lost almost 2 stones whilst line dancing so you can understand why I'm keen to get back to it!
What made me think of this today? Well see below for today's report on my knee.
My Knee
Tuesday 13th March
There has been a dramatic improvement in my knee overnight! Much of the swelling has gone down so there is definitely some shape to my knee now. Alright it's less Betty Grable more a lumpy potato but it's there! Suddenly I can swing my leg out of bed without supporting it in my hands, I can do a straight leg lift from a sitting position and can lift my leg hip high! All this may not seem very much but believe me when you think you may never walk properly again it's fantastic. I'm feeling good today. :)

If you can think it you can do it. Read the book or see the DVD "The Secret" The law of attraction does work. Think it and then manifest it. Blessings to you

I'll look out for the book Dave thanks. I am a great believer in 'you can do whatever you put your mind to'. Reiki blessings to you.

Great news my friend!! So glad to hear your knee is doing better...I had a friend in Ky that started line dancing classes not too long after I moved here to Ohio...she loves it and lost weight too!

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and leaving such a nice comment! Good luck to you with your knee - hope you're back to doing the Boot Scoot Boogie soon!

Akelamalu said...

Thanks Tammy, she hasn't roped you in yet then?

Thanks for dropping by Linda and for the good wishes.

oh, i'm so happy to hear about your knee improvement. the line dancing sounds like so much fun. i once talked to my hubby about giving it a try, but we never did it. the weight loss aspect sounds appealing too. i hope you're back to it soon.

Akelamalu said...

Hi bonnie ann and thank you on the knee front.

MWM wasn't keen on the idea of line dancing (or any dancing come to that) at first, but once he'd mastered his first dance he was hooked! Give it a go.
