do an arm dance on a Friday

For reasons I’m not entirely sure about, I was transfixed by this – a Youtube post of Gwyneth Paltrow’s personal trainer Tracey Anderson demo’ing her arm workout in the mirror.

She made it especially for Gwytneth and on her site Goop GP says she does it when she’s traveling.

It’s one of my favourite things to do: dance on my own at home. I especially love arm dancing – it gets blood to my shoulders and I concentrate on pressing me shoulder blades back together, like I’m squeezing an orange between them. I jump up between writing spurts and fling my limbs (I have this fear I’m starting to hunch from typing too much).

When you get home tonight, perhaps feeling a bit frazzled after talking too robustly at after-work drinks, dance with your arms like no one’s watching.

Enjoy. It’s Friday. Sigh.
