Good ole' Carmen

My newest endeavor this week is exercise...let's be honest, in the past I have never been a fan. I don't like sweating, stinking, etc. I decided I should probably make it fun, so I ordered some fun dance workout videos. My favorite so far has been Carmen Electra's Hip Hop dance video. So I am doing it yesterday, and during my "routine" there is a part were you are supposed to practically squat down on your feet with your hands in the air (ok, it is supposed to be a little more seductive than how I have made it sound). Anyways, I usually skip over it because I forget (anyone who has seen me try to dance will understand). Yesterday I was totally in the zone, nailing each move and without thinking I let gravity do it's thing. I thought I was pretty hot stuff until I tried to do the next step. I put a little pressure on my foot and dropped to the floor, trust me when I say it was not part of my workout! I stretched something very important in both my thighs, and today I have to admit walking is a struggle.


The morals of my story: I am no Carmen Electra and I should always stretch before I try to drop it like it's hot.


(sorry if that saying has some meaning I don't know about- I do mean it in the purest way possible, at least as pure as someone can be who is trying to imitate Carmen Electras sweet dance moves .)

You funny funny girl! I MISS YOU!! I love reading your blog because it's just like talking to you! Good job in your work-out endeavors.

You're so funny Lindsey! I've seen you drop it like it's hot and you do it like nobody's business! haha! That's cool that your sister is friends with Brooke White! I like her a lot too, she did a good job this week. Oh and speaking of workout videos, I highly reccomend any of Denise Austin's. And I think she's got a dance video as well, that might not be as strenuous as Carmen Electra's. ;)haha! Good luck!

You are hilarious! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I added plenty of pictures just for you. :-)

Thanks for the comment. I'm assuming that "hot bod" you referred to was the one in our engagement picture... taken 2 kids and 50 pounds ago. :-) I think I need some Carmen Elecktra in my life.

Haa! I am totally laughing--drop it like it's hot! I don't know if you remember but Adri and I found matching pants at the St. Johns Dollar General that had "Booty Queen" printed across the rear. We thought they were sooooo funny (and hello it's St. Johns) so we wore them every where until Grandpa spoke to us about how unlady like it was to wear things like that (we were wearing them in the purest--funnest way too). When we got to Provo we totally pulled them out again and wore them around the house. If I had the Carmen Electra video I'd wear my Dollar General pants and get down with my funky self. You go girl!

I am still laughing out loud. You are so funny. I am so bad at those kind of dance workouts, I'll never do them with anyone else around.
