I have done my chair dancing exercising today.

Hopefully, I'll repeat and under my Part timer number 2 GP orders, do chair dancing workout again for this week, and the next, I am gradually rebuidling up, my fitness, I don't wish to jump in, so to speak, normal s tanding based workouts so early on, not just yet.


Best regards all.

Have a good evening all.

I have done my chair dancing workout. I was feeling hungry at 5.45am, so I thought, I'll take a short br eak for b reakfast. I then returned to a final one more track and cooldown and stretching.

I hope to repeat, tomorrow.


Have a good day all,


Best regards.

Hi Folks/Hi All,

I wasn't able to workout , I happened to have slept for a lot longer.

Did housework helping out parents, and that wore me out, so I couldn't feel tow orkout during this afternoon, during the time parents have been out shopping.

Hopefully, I'll workout in due course this week.

Best regards all.

Your welcome, Hillman.

The dvd title; Smile and Sway - dancing exercises done, whilst seated. You can most likely locate this dvd, via on line source, Amazon.


Best regards.

wish I could afford one .
Its a big beast , put my helmet on as always , but even more important with this one as its v fast .
