Weekend recap Days 4 & 5 for SH4SC

Got some exercise dancing this weekend, but nothing else. Yesterday when I was getting ready to go to our Saturday night dance, I was feeling short of breath and my ribs hurt. It was lower than my heart, so I didn't think it was necessary to go to the ER. ;-) Feeling nauseous, too, which continued today. I'm able to eat OK, but only 3 small meals a day. Last night we danced at least 45 minutes. This afternoon we practiced our waltz with 3 other couples and that was around 45 minutes, too. We are doing really well with our routine, but my hubby may be in Korea during the time of the showcase. :-( I'm hoping his trip gets rescheduled. Our dance instructor said there's another event when we could dance it, too. She may find me another partner for the first showcase.

Weight is going up, so I know it's PMS bloating. Blech. Not sure if the nausea is just the start of a bad case of cramps or what.

Oh, and we DID get quite a bit of snow throughout the day and evening last night. The highway was pretty dicey last night as we went into town to dance. The ride home was a little nerve-wracking, too. Lots of blowing snow. When we got into our little town, someone had gone into the ditch by some townhouses and the car was almost vertical! Our hill is steep, but my awd Journey made it just fine. And it plowed through quite a deep drift across our driveway, but the snow piled on the deck in back was even higher! Ken said when he shoveled the driveway this morning, there were places of 10 inch deep snow. So it didn't miss us completely! My son was in Denver visiting friends and he said they didn't get much there at all.

My cousin lives in the springs and said she got some snow too.
I have a question. In your journey do you ever hit stopping spells where you r stuck at the same weight for a week at a time? I'm trying to figure this stuff out.

The dancing sounds like so much fun. One day hubby and I will have to try it. Blech, I hate snow! I HATE driving in it. Hope you get feeling better.

oOoh, I didn't know you were a dancer ;) I think I attempted to dance once with my husband at a Wedding, I was in my 3rd trimester so imagine a hugely pregnant gal dancing a disco dance :P I've always wanted to learn ballroom dancing with my husband (sigh) maybe one of these days!

Dancing is GREAT exercise! Way to go! I hope his trip gets changed, so you can enjoy YOUR partner for the first showcase!

Keep up the great work!

Dancing would be a great way to get your excercise. Would love to, but me and the hubby both are terrible dancers!

I bet you two are great at dancing. That sounds so so fun and a great way to burn calories!

Hope you're feeling better! The dancing sounds like soooo much fun! Hopefully, we have seen the last of snow until the end of the year.
