Dancing Envy And Double Standards

Someday, I want to be this brilliant in Tribal Fusion bellydancing.

If only I had some box converter so I can convert some of her YouTube videos into my television. ~_~

Unfortunately, as much as I love her dancing, society’s penchant for perfection continues to piss me off. Apparently, I’d be considered a freak if I tried to dance this kind of choreography when I am 80 pounds overweight.

Well, that sucks. I didn’t know you were supposed to have a specific bodily figure to bellydance. ~_~

I’ve been reading around the InterNet lately. Apparently, most “fluffy” bellydancers focus more on Egyptian-style bellydancing rather than Tribal Fusion style bellydancing. Which is fine for me. It’s just that there are way too many people who bring these bellydancers down by calling them “fat” or “disgusting”.

Seriously? Since when has dancing for pure enjoyment become disgusting?

Anyway, I really hate these kind of double standards. It’s annoying. It’s like saying you can go and do bellydance when you’ve shed some pounds and become skinny. Which is a total opposite of what belly dancing is all about. Bellydance is all about acceptance, and liking your body no matter what the shape.

Argh. Society sucks sometimes. Honestly. Remind me to find my old bellydance belt and dance my heart out while rising my middle finger to the people who give me disgusted looks. >:(

hibaRaks!!!

Oh, greatness… thy name is Hiba! XD

Yep, this girl is proof that you can still be an awesome bellydancer even though you’re fluffy (unlike me, who keeps visiting weightlossdietpills.net to find out how I can lose weight).

She’s no Rachel Brice… but damn! She’s good. I just hope I had her confidence when dancing. XD

I can never seem to get rid of my confidence issues. I don’t know, it’s probably just me. I guess I’m not really too cool with letting my jiggly bits wobble.

But Hiba… man, she’s just really awesome! Her dancing is great, her hair is great, and her costume is awesome.

I wonder what decade will I be able to be like that? ~_~

Me Wants High Heels, but My Belly Doesn’t

One of the things that irk me, being a heavy set woman and all, is that I can’t seem to walk properly in high heels. XD

Of maybe I’m just not used to it.

Take this baby for example:

 

 

 From Cellphone Photos

It’s classy, chic, strappy and has these awesome high heels. And it looked so kick-a$$ on my feet too. But unfortunately, I couldn’t buy them because… I can’t carry them well (not to mention the price would probably burn a hole in my pocket XD).

I saw an episode on Oprah that showed some of the best shoes that a woman should get, and how to walk in high heels. I tried it with a pair of stiletto Rusty Lo shoes I had, and I looked kind of silly. Hahaha!

As much as I want to walk all fierce and sexy in my heels, my belly kind of ruins it. Haha! Maybe I should start working out or something. I look better in sneakers anyway. XD

Of Fitness….

Okay, this is a pretty disturbing realization.

I am not as fit as I used to be.

My mom recently bought a packet of cereals which had an exercise VCD as a free bonus. It’s a Les Mills Body Combat VCD.

Now when I went to the gym (which I discontinued because the gym I went to were just a bunch of money-grubbing sharks >_<), I attended this class, and it was pretty fun. But of course I still had my preferences, mainly Yoga and Bellydance classes, as well as the Body Jam. My sister attended this more often though, and she swears that this class was the reason she got a little thin (note on the word "little" XD). So anyway, I tried it out, and as much as I don’t want to admit being a loser, this workout totally kicked my fat a$$. Seriously. I’m still at the warm up and already I’m panting and sweating like crazy! Geeze! This isn’t a workout, it’s total torture. But then again, what do you expect to feel when you’re overweight and then you’re doing all these punches and kicks and whatnot? This is what I deserve for indulging on sugary foods and stuff. >_< And as much as I hated working out, I kind of liked the feeling of moving around again. Of course, I’m going to have to heal up a bit, since I have a nasty cough and colds. But once I do, I’m going to make sure this VCD never leaves my Laptop or our DVD player. XD
