Today was day one of my 40 workouts in 40 days and my first workout was the Goddess workout. The woman in the workout is name Ophelia and she seems to be a pretty good belly dance guru. I am not and it was funny, but I could definitely feel the burn in my hips and abdomen during the workout.
I have danced before so it was easy for me to pick up. I said easy to pick up but not easy to do if that makes any sense. I have not had any belly dance lessons so the hip movement was hard. I got the “just” of it, but looked terribly funny doing it…lol
The shoulder is burning a bit now and not in a good way. I hope this subsides and does not turn into an ibuprofen day, so we will see. I took out the arms a lot and just focused on the abdomen, hips and thighs.
There is a “shimmy” part in the end and this woman can shimmy. Oh my lord, I don’t know how she does it. Then she adds some hip movement into her shimmy. I had not idea how to do that. Thanks goodness my 3-year old was entertained with his video game because I may have scared him a bit.
So, not my absolute favorite workout but it was good. I know this would tone the ans and hips if I did it more. Let’s see what tomorrow bring.
Oh and I jsut got back from the gym…hubby gave into 40 minutes on the elliptical. So double workout today!
