I’ve been doing so well this early into Summer with my Shape Up regimen. I have a good exercise routine in place…. Either a hot dose of Bikram Yoga or dancing to El Paso Positivo song with my arms flailing from side to side and a jump just to show my enthusiasm. Me and the Maestro del vaso Medio Lleno have this routine in common.
My son and I were dancing to “EL Paso Positivo” on our front lawn and before I knew it we had a group of neighbors staring at our dance moves. I told them to come in and we could all practice and get in shape together. Soon, everyone felt they had the signature moves attached to the dance down. Whether they did or didn’t wasn’t the point, we were all having a blast dancing together. It was such a joyful experience, my son Max invited everyone back for a BLOCK PARTY the next day. I made a big batch of Cherry Coconut Chocolate Milk Shakes so once we were done shaking our behinds, we could drink down our shakes! We had such a magnificent time. I told the two cute school aged boys from across the street to come back and dance with us whenever they fancy. The sweet punk rock girl next store let her inner dance princess loose and found her way to enjoy El Paso Positivo. The two senior ladies were really happy to be reliving some youth and hanging out with fun people. El Maestro and I highly recommend this neighborly love!
Here’s a video of us doing “El Paso Positivo”
Shake it up Baby! This summer when you find yourself dancing to the awesome sounds of El Paso Positivio to get in shape, remember to drink a BIG TALL GLASS of MILK right after. This will help your muscles to recover after a good workout. Or have one of my Cherry Coconut Chocolate Milk Shakes!
