There have been lots of "mild weather" periods lately (sandwiched, unfortunately between unbearable days of muggy heat) so my knee highs still make an appearance here and there. I've also been able to pull out some booties, giving my few pairs of sandals a little bit of a break. Speaking of shoes, check out the newest addition to my closet:
One of my summer goals was to take a class. I didn't expect to take a fitness class, much less a dance class since I am very graceless and uncoordinated. But I did! I took a 4-week ballet session and was amazed at how much I still could remember from my classes when I was a kid. I loved doing the barre moves and struggled through coordinating my arms with my legs during center stage exercises. But it was a lot of fun and a very satisfying workout.
Since I really am not interested in performing or even learning how to dance, I most likely won't take any more ballet classes. However, I'm thinking about doing barre workouts at home. Have any of you tried it? Do you have any suggestions for specific titles?
