So Since my youngest was born by EMCS in may Ive struggled to shift the weight. I'm 2 stones over my previous lean size 10/12 figure with most of it on my belly. I don't eat crap, I do drink wine I work 2 days a week in a physical job and don't drive so get a fair bit of walking in. But the weights been tough to shift (im 33) previous pregnancy many years ago took all of a month to remove all evidence... Anyway, partners out most nights (separate issue) teenage daughter usually out. No willing babysitters so stuck in nearly every night alone apart from sleeping 5 month old. Recently Ive been doing this crazy thing... Once all the housworks done and lil man is fast asleep, I knock back a glass of wine, stick on the music channel and dance like crazy for about 2 hours to some fast clubby type music. I used to dance properly, ballet,hiphop and a bit of breakdancing so I can bust moves. Theres a big mirror in my lounge and my fat, sweaty self looks stupid as hell but I get a real buzz on and get really breathless and hot which makes me feel like I'm getting good cardio while enjoying the sensation of moving to music. Ive lost a couple of pounds this week already, is this totally tragic or a genius solution to my boring lonely evenings and baby wobble? Honest thoughts?
Ahh. So I'm not mental then (well not on this basis) Only downside is that every now and then one of 'those tunes' comes on and the most painful surge of nostalgia hits me and I could sell everything to get my old body and lifestyle back... Quick tiptoe into sleeping chubby face's room and I'm reminded why I'm still here lol. for now, its good. Imagine though if I forgot to shut the curtains or if DP walked in without me hearing... I would actually die I think.
Not tragic at all! I used to do the same when I was losing weight. Had a whole playlist of songs. There's a lot of high intensity interval workout videos on YouTube which are dance-based, so you might enjoy those too. They tire you out, but you feel amazing afterwards haha. Congrats on your weight loss!
