They weeble and they wobble but they don't fall down

This morning I got up at 5:15 and did my yoga conditioning/bellydance drills DVD. The full yoga warm up is good - I had time for it today. It is 20 minutes and has a number of poses and transitions to build leg strength and balance. I'm still really wobbly, so hopefully I can keep getting myself up early enough to do the 10 minutes extra of the long warm up. The drills were challenging as always, and I can feel the muscle groups I used, but I can do more than last time...guess I must be doing something right. My tribal arms are looking pretty damn good, if'n I do say so myself. AND I can do shimmy's with height changes. Woot :)
Today I have a bellydance class after work. It should be fun. Wednesdays my class is right near my brother's house, so I get to pop in and see him...you'd think living in the same city we'd visit more, but we're pretty much on opposite sides of the city, so I'm glad I have my classes near him - it's a great chance to visit at least once a week for an hour...sometimes I stay for supper too. It's nice.
Last night I made irish stew and soda bread for shamrock day...it was yummy. I've never made soda bread before. I'm impressed - the recipe had some ground almonds in it. I think I will make it again. And the stew? Anything with beer in it is good :)
Well...I must be off. Much to do.
Have a great day :)

Yoga is an exercise I haven't tried before, but hear that it's good for your muscles. Soda bread is something new for me, too. It sounds good, as does stew with beer!
