Note to self...

(here is a picture of me and my sisters after a Jimmy Eat World concert, because I hate posts without pictures. Please note the euphoric smiles. yes I am sweaty and hot and red faced and I love every minute of it!)

Note to self: if your walking briskly on the canal by yourself at 7 in the morning and you do a spontaneous, adrenaline induced "dance"(picture Kevin Bacon in Footloose in that warehouse that is actually the Lehi Roller Mills in Utah, but way more spastic and uncoordinated and um...ME) to your favorite Jimmy Eat World song, thinking you are alone because no one is in front of you, beware that there might be someone that you can not hear because your headphones are on, BEHIND YOU......awkward? yea.

Kevin Bacon in Footloose: this is how I looked on the canal this morning, minus the smoking and drinking and you HAVE to watch this because if you picture me doing this, I promise you will LOL!

That is pretty acrobatic. I didn't know you had a gymnastic background.

LOL!! Ha ha ha ha! Unfortunately, I can totally picture that - it is a fav on the movie list. That part is just awesome, too! :) Glad you enjoy your exercise time...regardless of who is watching!

I had to make that aerial into cart wheel but the effect was the same.

Sing it loud and proud sister! And don't you worry, I do it all the time....unfortunately, by now, people expect that sort of thing from me. You keep on dancin' Joy!

Maybe I should try that because I can't seem to find the excitement in exercising...and that's unfortunate for this post-baby body of mine. I can totally picture you rocking out. That's hilarious! You go girl!

#1.- I totally did LOL #2- what Jimmy song was it? #3- Who saw you? what type of person was it? and were they laughing? #4- I hope you took off your sweatshirt and used it as a prop a la Kevin Bacon #5- I'm going to have to watch that movie again. Classic.

Sher-#2 I can't remember what song, maybe Sweetness. #3 Thank heavens I have no idea who it was that saw me. he was a normal jogger and no he did not seem amused, just embarassed, like me. I didn't know he was there until I turned around at the end of the canal. #4 I totally took off my sweatshirt but prolly looked more like Napolean Dynamite and less like Kevin Bacon...sadly. #5 Yes, that movie is the best, lets have a movie night and watch it together!

If I caught you doing those moves I would, for sure, pee my pants. I had no idea you could move like that.

You would,for sure, pee your pants if you saw it because sadly I can not, for sure, move like that.
