Starting On Breakdancing

Yeap, it was popular in 1970's and it's popular again these days. Breakdance it's street dance based which involve body movements, coordination and style. It's a also known the oldest version of Hip Hop. You might want to thank James Brown and Michael Jackson to bring all these breakdance moves.

Like any dances in the world, the very basic element you need is music. Hip Hop is not the only option. You can choose 70's, soul, funk, some people even use jazz tunes. My favorite is Beastie Boys.

Learning breakdance is quite tricky and can cause injury, thus having knee pads and elbow pads are essential. Just for the info, my knee got swollen practicin the moves. But if you are too shy or you think you have good flexibility wear long pants to cover your knees from bruises.

Breakdance considered as exercise, make sure you do some warm up before you hit the dance floor.

Another important element from breakdance is FASHION! I don't mean to advertise certain brands, but Nike and Adidas have very stylish dance clothing line.
The clothes and the color you choose should show your own personality. Wear t-shirt that fits but don't restrict the movement. Buy some good socks, 'cos breakdancing is lots of footwoork.

So far, the benefits that I get from breakdancing are ( apart from the happy feeling and look cool ) I gain more flexibility and of course found a new to train my core.

Happy Breakdancing!

Confessions of A Nikeholic

Some confessions from ( my new discovered nickname )Nikeholic :

1. Bought another new pair of Nike from its dance clothing line ( love that golden logo print ). Since I'm into breakdancing and oldskool dance. Well, the outfit sort of draining my salary..but what the heck..I'm brokenhearted ( again ) and gotta look cool when dancing!

2. After for nearly 10 days splashing the swimming pool, kinda miss my gym. So yesterday, I was back in action as gym rat went to different clubs in same day. From Body Balance, Body Combat, Breakdance and wrapped with Street Jam!

3. My old love to my Spanish instructor, Xabier ( too bad he's gay ) is blossoming...I miss his classes and really enjoyed his Body Balance yesterday. Will come again for sure babe!

4. In love with Body Balance, feel enlighted with this exercise.

5. Dreaming about this latest edition of Nike..( oh god ). It's red and orange and can be synchronized with iPod....( hhhmmmm....I have the iPod but I need the SHOES!!! )

6. Making excuses to buy those Nike shoes, eventhought I'm broke..( wish I'm filthy rich..I would buy the whole store, if possible I'd buy the Nike company ! )

Diet with Patience

Our patience will achieve more than our force
-Edmund Burke-

For almost couple of weeks, I've been taught the art of patience, including about food. I'm a woman with huge apetite of eating. I'm also an emotional eater. As for this year, I made a promise to myself that my fasting should be better than last year.
So far, I have lost 2 days of fasting due to my bad sore throat. However, I learn really valuable things. I thought I could never live during this fasting month. I thought I would fail again. More temptations to just swallow those food.

But you know, as time to break the fasting comes, all those foods who seem calling me to eat taste ordinary. And I'm telling to myself "Hey..that wasn't so bad after all".

It takes a courage to be patient in dieting. Patience to wait for the result. Patience to resist all the temptations ( fatty food, deep fried etc ). We may fall during our patience, and when you fall you don't stay on the ground but get up and find that patience within you. If it applies in everyday living then it should apply in dieting as well.
