Oompa Loompa Augustus Gloop Work Out

This morning my sister and I "worked-out" at her house.
She has one of those "Bow Flex" type machines and I had never used one before, and she was more than happy to show me the bow, (instead of the ropes...funny?).

Anyway, trying to get warmed up was a problem this morning because it was cold and raining...which we could endure like any soldier (had to throw that in before someone called me a wuss or something!)but her kids are 1 and 3 and would have to endure the nasty weather too and we didn't think that was a good idea.

So, she got the bright idea to warm up to the Oompa Loompa's Augustus Gloop dance routine on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
This is one of my favorite movies, and I am wild about Deep Roy...he is just so funny! We had to practice, and by no means did we have it down pat by the time we were finished, but I have never laughed harder or had more fun doing a warm-up ...EVER!

When we were done she looked at me and said, "Cora! When we have this memorized we will be able to do at weddings and stuff!!!"

Oh, heaven help me! She will make me learn it, and I guarantee you at some point I will do this crazy dance at a wedding (sober?). But don't expect me to tell you when or where that might be!

And to be clear, we did not actually eat any chocolate at any point during the work out...I'll have to see about fixing that next week :)
