Fitness Fear Friday - So many things, so little time

I'm bored with this place I'm going to. True, it's just the basics but the teacher is a super slow-talker and she slurs a lot. Seriously makes me wonder if there is something not quite right with her. She's really nice and very helpful, don't get me wrong. I just feel numb going into her class and coming out of it. I don't think belly dancing class should have that effect. So, I've decided to call it quits at that school and try my hips at a different one.

Are you ready for this? Oh, I have a really really really good feeling about this new adventure.

Miss Indigo Blue, Head Mistress

Fuchsia Foxxx, Belly Dance

My husband and I had the pleasure of seeing Fuchsia Foxxx in action. We went to a burlesque show at The Pink Door in Seattle and she was one of the performers. Absolutely amazing! We had no idea who was going to be there, nor had we ever heard of her before but let me tell you, she was AWESOME! She does this belly dancing-burlesque fusion kinda thing and it's HOTTIE HOT HOT HOTTTTTT! A few days later, I found myself surfing the net, looking for belly dancing schools in Seattle and stumbled across the Academy of Burlesque. So I checked it out and who did I see on the list of instructors but Fuchsia Foxxx herself in all her HOT pink glory. I had already paid for the other classes though so I felt I should give it an honest try. I tried. I'm done. I'm going with Fuchsia Foxx and the Academy of Burlesque.

She does a 6-8 week session like most of the other schools too and this session has already started but I talked to the school and they said I should be totally fine to just do a drop-in and try it out a couple times. So that's exactly what I'm going to do. My first Fuchsia fusion is this coming Tuesday. Should be interesting.

If you didn't read my Wednesday post, please allow me to announce my HUGE accomplishment again. I have FINALLY conquered my stupid, silly little big fear about Punk Rope.
  • I no longer care what people think of my weight as a fitness instructor because Punk Rope is super fun and I know something they don't know. So there!
  • I no longer care if people know how much I know and don't know nor do I care if they think I'm doing it all wrong because I know something they don't know. So there!
  • I no longer care if I try and fail because I'm doing something that others wouldn't dare to even consider trying themselves. So there!
  • I no longer care if people take me seriously because Punk Rope is fun and so am I. So there!
  • I no longer believe that I have no right to teach people to exercise. I have all the right in the world because I know stuff that other people don't. So there!
In the past few days I have:
  1. Booked a venue for the month of December to start Punk Rope classes. December 4th, 11th, and 18th.
  2. I applied for a business license in Seattle.
  3. I applied for liability insurance so don't go getting any ideas about suing me.
  4. I got the music downloaded for the first class.
  5. I contacted a writer lady who offered to send someone to my first class and hopefully get them to write about it in a local Seattle publication.
  6. I started creating a flier to hand out this weekend.
  7. I put the class curricula together for all three classes. First class is going to be Punk Rope Goes to the Movies. The second class is going to be a little tropical vacation from the freezing temperatures around here. And the third class is going to be in the spirit of the season. Hint? Kids are welcome.
    If this is offensive to you....too fucking bad. Suck it up. Christmas exists and it's called "Christmas". If you don't like it, stay home with your 30 cats and tell them all about it because I don't care.
  9. I put my list of invitations together so I get to email them all out today as soon as my flier is done.
  10. I purchased the domain name. It's still not active yet but it will be shortly and I'll probably be moving my blog over there and I'll post all Seattle Punk Rope classes and events there as well.
  11. I have a whole list of people to contact and ideas for marketing Punk Rope properly. The marketing festivities will likely take place tomorrow.
Watch out Seattle, here comes Punk Rope!!!


  1. I think that class sounds like fun! I can't wait to hear more about it! If you enjoy omething, then who cares what other people say!

  2. More yes than no! Good for you. I tried belly dancing once on vacation. My hips are shy!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your classes sound like a hoot - I wish I didn't live 3000 miles away! This is my first visit to your blog - I'm gong to do some browsing or your archive. Thanks for the encouragement about TG. I'm feeling positive about it now - but next Thursday?? We'll see. I'll be back to see how you're doing.

  4. Thanks for stopping by my Porch, and WOW, Punk Rope? First time I've heard of it - you GO, girl! Burlesque & Belly Dancing sounds SO TOTALLY EXOTIC, wow, I'm very curious to know how it goes! I don't even have to say 'have fun' because I'm pretty sure the fun levels are going to be high!

  5. Salina, even though you didn't hit all your goals, you still did great. You know, you really sound like a fun person that makes the most of life. I bet others really enjoy being around you.
