I am not a Chipmunk, so I have to remind myself that I am not preparing to hibernate for winter. Meaning that I don’t need to be eating all the fatty foods that have been so tempting as of late and I don’t need to slow down my metabolism and activity levels for winter. After all I am a Canadian gal and I do need to be in tip top shape for a season of winter sports. I mean really gals why cuddle up on a couch when you can go for a romantic moonlight snowshoe, skate a top of a mountain, enjoy a picnic of bread, cheese and mulled wine whilst taking a jaunt on local cross-country ski trails. And in my mind this is ten times sexier (well at least more amusing) when you can skate circles around your date and ‘accidentally’ knock him into the snowbank when he is least expecting.
Combating the early stages of northern hibernation by reminding myself that I am a sexy goddess and should make myself feel as such by taking some extra special aerobic dance classes. Fortuitously coinciding with this craving to ‘bring back sexy’, my favorite ‘sexy’ dance instructor, the Glam Cat, has returned from her year long hiatus. Just not the same with anyone else, as she has me laughing so hard that I forget what a workout I am getting until I wonder why my hips are so tired afterwards. Plus she makes every woman, no matter what age, shape, size or age feel like the sexy devil that they should.

And yes, gentlemen we are indeed discussing learning how to do the ‘late night ballet’. And no, you’re not invited. You’ll just have to use your imaginations to fantasize as to what goes on in these dance classes (or date me and if you are extra lucky, I may give you a reenactment).
