Mood Booster Moments....(Can You Feel It)

Hey hey Shiners!

This is something that I am starting with Positively Shining.  I know many of us are superwoman/man an we are doing a million and one things with our days.  We work, have children, school, tend to our own businesses and tons more.  Is the boss getting on your nerves, stressed out, having a rough start to your day/night and need a mood booster, well here is a place where you can receive what you need.  Hopefully my little moments of foolery in life will be able to take your mind off that irritating situation just for a moment.  So I invite you to take a stroll with me in the past and in current times-so cash in your negative moment for a positive moment and have a laugh on me!!

Round One.....

As I sit here and listen to "The Jackson's" Can you feel it....it takes my mind back to when I was in my zumba class.  I was just starting out and I had no clue what I was in store for.  I have my bottles of water, towel and I'm ready to get started for what ever the class consists of.  Everything is going good, I get through a few songs until we get to the infamous "Can you feel it".  All I heard were low moans and groans...I had no clue why I'm a newbie.  My body is already a tad bit drained because of the other fast paced songs before this one.  I hear the beat of the song and said "heyyyy the Jackson's!" LOL



Well let me tell you all that Heeeeeyyyy went right out the window soon enough. Shuffle to the side, shuffle to the side...OK OK I got this. Shuffle-shuffle- and then here goes....CAN YOU FEEL IT CAN YOU FEEL IT CAN YOU FEEL IT! Now while those words are playing you have to run in place with your are straight up and shaking your hands. OK the first time I was good to go. The second time wait this is becoming a bit difficult, now lets talk about the third time and add some sweat! And it went a little something like this......



Song: can you feel it, Can you feel it, Can you feel it! Can you see what's going down, you can feel it in your bones.....

Me in my head: Yeah I can feel it....it hurts a little bit. Ok back to the lovely shuffle...cool

Song: now tell me! Can you feel it, tell me Can you feel it, Can you feel it! Talk now can you see what's going down open up your mind.

Me in my head: now you know what!? where is this shuffle because my arms are ummmm hurting lady instructor!! OK back to the shuffle thank you lawd....now by this time I'm sweating something crazy(it is cardio you know) at the same time my thighs are feeling it, and so are my arms from flaring them around like a rag doll. Back to the song.....

Song: If you look around the whole world's coming together now. Can you feel it, Can you feel it, Can you feel it! Feel it in the air.....

Me in my head: What is he talking about If I look around...omggggg the sweat is in my eye and its BURNINGGGG! Cant get to my towel....ohhhhh it burns it burns...great so now my eyes are burning along with my thighs and arms. This is total foolery!!!!!!

Song: Now tell me! Can you feel it, Can you feel it, Can you feel it! Can you feel it, Can you feel it, Can you feel it! Now tell me! Can you feel it, Can you feel it, Can you feel it! Can you feel it, Can you feel it, Can you feel it!

Me in my head: Why is this !$%&# song so long...you got to be kidding me.??? OK its over....OHHHHH NO IT ISN'T!

Instructor: keep going ladies....Me in my head: What lady you can kiss my grits! Your trying to kill us in here!

Well as the beat fades out my legs are now numb, head is pounding and I have drank all my blasted water, but I got my trusty towel to stop my eyes from BURNINGGGG!

LoL! I've heard that Zumba is no joke! You did it though! I'd have stopped after the first few words of the song and then dared anyone to try and make me keep going. Yay for positivity! LoL! Great post and I love the look of your blog! #CommentHour and Flashback Friday

You remind me... I need to get back to Zumba. Oh, I need to GET BACK TO ZUMBA! No more excuses!!!

Classic NYer said...

Oh that's awesome! Zumba scares the shit out of me for mostly that reason... but I have to say I felt the same way in my first yoga lesson. "You want me to put my what between my what and stand on my what? Hell to the no!" Haha!

Such a great post! I love that song! And I love how you tied the lyrics in with your experience. I love dancing with the Wii - that way I can start and stop when I want - great music, too! Love your blog! :)

Funny! I feel your pain, girl. That song reminds me of a Jane Fonda tape that I used to work out to. It was the first song on the tape and it was for the warm-up portion of the exercise routine, but I was often wasted by the time the song and the warm-up were done. LOL! Thanks for the laugh, Redsy!

Amazing how much longer a song seems when your working out to it than when you're just hearing it on the radio at work!
