Cross Training

I must preface this by saying that I am not a dancer, nor have I ever been a dancer.

My husband on the other hand...

He works as the Youth Director at our church. He does a fantastic job and the kids seem to love him. He is patient, he is goofy, he pushes the envelope with them but only up to a point. He knows exactly where to draw the line and he is creative. Seriously, he even ate a dragonfly last year on the mission trip because the kids dared him to.

He is taking 25 kids and 5 adults with him this summer on a mission trip to Alaska. They are going to work at a family camp and immerse themselves in the culture. I am SO jealous but someone has to stay home to watch the dogs and make some money! =0) Anywho, two weekends ago the youth department put on a variety show to make money to send the kids to Alaska. Most of the acts were high school kids singing, playing instruments, one group put on a game show skit. They did a super job. And then there was my husband. He talked me into helping him with a dance skit that he had seen on YouTube called Evolution of Dance. He made quite of few of his own additions and took out some of the dances that were either inappropriate for church or that the senior high kids wouldn't recognize. It took him two weeks to put together the music and we spent 6 hours the Saturday before practicing. (That totally counted as my workout for the day. That and the 45 minutes of XC skiing that morning.) So without further ado, I thought I would pass along a great form of cross training that you can do at home in your living room with all the furniture pushed to the walls. Working out is about having fun and being healthy. So, go have fun!

Now thats comedy! Sounds fun, if I could just do something about my 2 Left feet. Talk about a hard time getting fit for bike shoes.
