How to Exercise by Dancing in Stilettos January 13, 2006

Posted by Leita in Flotsam/Jetsam, Health, News.

Elle's heelsA quick peek into my stats revealed several visits from women searching for information about dancing in high heels. (High heels, Elle on Heels, heh.) It’s only polite to give them something for their time, right?

Even though I am not officially posting to this blog any longer, I came back to address these visitors and welcome them with the following:

How to Dance in High Heels and Stilettos

  1. Shut the fridge door
  2. Turn off the television
  3. Put on some snappy music
  4. Put on some snappy heels
  5. Start dancing

Seriously, how hard can this be? Not to be snarky, but I am curious. Is the Kirsty Alley method of losing one’s ass something that has to be learned or is it just a matter of get up and start moving?

I do have my own routine, it’s not quite the same but similar.

My version

All of the above, plus:

  1. Add a sandy beach
  2. And a couple drinks

My version, while a little unorthodox, works faster and my ass is quarter-bouncing firm.



Pull ’em Out of Iraq: Troops Needed in Japan December 16, 2005

Apparently Japanese men have forgotten the basics:

Eiko Yamada, proprietor of Shesta, another adult good shop targeting women, says there’s more good vibrations around than a Beach Boys album, with the number of adult aid users skyrocketing, particularly among women in their late 20s to early 30s.

“Our sales are almost 200 percent what they were last year,” Yamada tells Shukan Post.

Mood Gym – Exercise for Your Psyche December 2, 2005

Posted by Leita in Health, Internet.


Depressed? Stressed? Try this with me. Mood Gym is an online program developed in Australia to help people learn how to cope with their internal demons. It’s free with no advertising.

Register, answer a few basic questions such as age, general location and educational level and select which of the six available programs to use (some are in beta but are fully functional). I opted for the full program.

Following two quizzes on depression and anxiety, the rest of the program is divided into modules: Feelings, Thoughts, Unwarping, Destressing, Relationships and Final Quizzes.

This is not the typical women’s magazine style of self-discovery quizzes. It takes a long time to complete. Everything is logged into a personal workbook to keep and use after the program completion; a sort of journal of their own internal bugs and monsters. Given to a therapist or physician, it could speed up the discovery process when diagnosing and treating mental woes.

Mood Gym can’t take the place of traditional medical treatment and pharmaceuticals, but for someone with mild ill moods or hard heads who refuse to admit they need help, this could be a start.
