King Julian says, “Maurice, my arm is tired. Wave it for me. Faster, you naughty little monkey!”
I think King Julian may be my new favorite cartoon character (sorry, Stitch). That dancing jungle scene in Madagascar is the best: “I like to move it, move it. I like to move it, move it. Ya! Move it!” (That song is stuck in your head now, isn’t it?)
I chose these two King Julian quotes because they lead nicely into my exercise post. Yes, you read correctly: Exercise post.
I exercise daily to burn off the insane amount of chocolate and sweets that I consume.
King Julian and I have a lot in common. Let’s start with Quote #1. Sometimes he is lazy and needs Maurice to wave his arm.
On Sunday (our two-year anniversary), Kiefer Sutherland and I walked to a restaurant for dinner (the same restaurant where he first asked me out). On the way back, I asked Kiefer if he would carry me.
Me: But I already exercised today, and I walked all the way there. Can’t you please carry me back? My feet hurt. And it’s our anniversary. Don’t you have to do whatever I say?
Kiefer was not as accomodating as Maurice. He made me walk the whole way home. Please feel free to post a comment telling Kiefer to carry me when I request it in the future.
But from Quote #2 we know that King Julian also likes to dance or “move it.” And so do I. Kinda. A lot of the exercise videos that I like are cardio dance ones, but you won’t catch me dancing at a party or bar. Only in the privacy of my own home where I can close the curtains.
Crunch makes some really good ones if you’d looking to try some out. This week I tried out Dance off the Inches Fat Burning Belly Dance. It was fun.
I’m not the most coordinated person, but I was able to follow all the steps and sweat (yuck). And I stayed on my feet the whole time. Not once did I fall on my booty.
Plus any trainer that says, “If it’s moving on the backside, you’re doing it right,” is good with me.
