    No its not food !! honstly you lot...LOL!

    The OH and I went to Salsa classes last week... what a great evening we had.

    There was about 150 or more in a large dance hall in Canterbury it started at 20:00 hrs ( 8pm) and we got stuck into the basic class with about twenty others.
    By 10 pm ( 22.00hrs) we were actually dancing salsa !!!. What great fun for just £12.00. I am at the gym most days and to be honest the work out was great.:D

    The classes are made up of people with all shapes and sizes and ages and abilities.

    They recon in a couple of hours salsa you burn about 400 + calories and tone that wobble.... can't be bad.

    Oh a my OH who is super slim ( lucky her) had a fancy for a bag of chips , and I happily stood in the chippy ordered a bag of freshly cooked chips and handed them over..... OMG the smell was really good but I did not waver one bit !!! munched into a apple and a satsuma.... and pretended LOL!

    We loved the dancing that OH and I started up (never thought he'd go - ballroom but also had some Latin in it) but now he's away weekdays I've got no-one to go with :( Really tones the bum & thighs!

    Fallen Angel....you can go on your own Hun!!!
    I first learnt ballroom, then moved into Latin and now settled with modern jive (I teach it too)...its fantastic exercise and great for the thighs!! Lol.
    You dont need to take a partner with you...my Hubby wont dance and so I have had to go on my own or be stuck in the house twiddling my thumbs! Im a person that gets bored easily so for me the thought of doing it alone was originally daunting, but now I'm happy! Most of my friends go on their own too!

    I did salsa last yr, it was great fun, really enjoyed it, it didnt help with weight loss but was worth going just for the socialising bit. Classes have just started up again but I'm at my busiest just now so cant go till new year
