A Dancing Queen No More!

Andy used to tell me that age is just a number.... I believed in him, I agreed wholeheartedly until today.... I dare not say AGE is just a number anymore, it is not ... proven this evening...

After months of not doing any vigorous exercise, I have to admit... I am not young anymore, a Five and a Jero! Age is about ageing....

This evening I attended an aerobic class... in the beginning I was like a 20 year old.. swinging my hands and legs like nobody's biz. But after a mere 20 minutes or so, I was like a 60 year old, puffing and huffing... thinking, hey, am I getting an heart attack? macam mau pengsan! During the dancing part, I couldn't even twist and cha-cha like I used to, my body and legs were so stiff, I couldn't believe it! And my heart.... ooooohhhh... I think its time for me to go for a body checkup.. sigh...

  1. Fairy tales can come true, it can happen to you
    If you’re young at heart
    For it’s hard, you will find, to be narrow of
    mind
    If you’re young at heart

    You can go to extremes with impossible schemes
    You can laugh when your dreams fall apart at the
    seams
    And life gets more exciting with each passing
    day
    And love is either in your heart or on it’s way

    Don’t you know that it’s worth every treasure on
    earth
    To be young at heart
    For as rich as you are it’s much better by far
    To be young at heart

    And if you should survive to 105
    Look at all you’ll derive out of being alive
    Then here is the best part
    You have a head start
    If you are among the very young at heart

    And if you should survive to 105
    Look at all you’ll derive out of being alive
    Then here is the best part
    You have a head start
    If you are among the very young at heart

  16. Wau, shake shake shake, shake shake shake, shake your booty, shake your booty...

    hello sister,if you've stopped exercise for a while, so it is like that one lah...

    actually andy is right, age is just a mere number,, you can forget about the 50 thingy,,, just think your are 25

    ok now repeat after me,

    " I Claire shall stay forever 25,no matter what,and by the grace of god,i shall still believe that i shall always be 25."

    recite this line from now untill you are really 75. in the mean keeping shaking, keep dancing.

    Friday night, the lights are always low, looking for a place to go.......oooo,see that girl , watch that scene

  21. I'm sure your stamina will improve if you go for more of these classes! :) Trust me! There's this lady in my kickboxing (!!) class who has stamina greater than all of us! And I think she must have been in her mid 50s! You can do it Claire! :)

  22. LOL! This is a cute post.

    Hi Claire, how are you? I apologise for this overdue stopover. Thank you so much for this sweet comment you left on my blog. It is very much appreciated, believe me. Yes, we can certainly keep in touch thru our blogs.

    Drop by for the latest update on How to make thousands by doing nothing at all... well, almost nothing. Not sure whether it'll work but I believe it's worth a try. Come on over..

  31. Oh yes. Age is not a matter of number. We should take our age seriously. Being old has a lot of physical disadvantage.

    That's what is happening to me. Hahaha
