wednesday.

i have already shut down.  just hunkering down and holding my breath until school’s out.  umm ~ it’s march still.  i have a long way to go, so why am i already giving up on everything? i absolutely refuse to work out.  why?  why does this happen?  i don’t understand it.  it’s a rebellion of some sort, or a depression.  i am so angry that … Continue reading wednesday.

wednesday.

wednesday is always a killer.  i start at 10 and finish at 9 usually.  today i start at 10 and finish at 6:30, then i’m going to a masterclass at helzberg hall.  the instructor will be joyce didonato, one of my all-time favorite opera singers. my day yesterday was 11-9, which is just as bad, but wednesday is always the day that i just dread. … Continue reading wednesday.

tuesday.

i love the rain.  i feel so content when it’s pouring outside.  and if there’s thunder?  i’m in total bliss.  could it be my scottish roots?  i heard that it rains there 300 days out of the year.  that’s a little too much rain for me, probably.  or is it? spring break is over.  sniff sniff.  oh well, it’s just as well.  let’s just get … Continue reading tuesday.

FRIDAY! FRIDAY!!! FRIIIIIDAAAAY!!!!!!

it’s friday!  and the first day of spring break!  can this be real?  the first day of breathing and eating right and finding balance again!!!!  i am so thrilled.  actually, i’m in shock.  i can’t believe it’s here.  yesterday, after the last final lesson, i opened my studio door, students all around, and ripped the lesson/coaching schedule off the door, crumpled it up and threw … Continue reading FRIDAY! FRIDAY!!! FRIIIIIDAAAAY!!!!!!

monday.

the HAPPINESS PROJECT awaits.  march is subtitled “aim higher”.  what a coincidence.  after having only done 3 out of 6 workouts on p90x last week, i started back up this morning with the 4th workout, yoga, thinking that i would just finish out the 1st week’s workouts, even if it took me two weeks. i couldn’t even get through 30 minutes of the 1 1/12 … Continue reading monday.

thursday.

staying home this morning until noon.  awesome.  there was only one half-hour coaching i had to cancel to make that possible, but this is the kind of stuff i never thought to do before, to make my life easier.  now i can work out, finish this mound of laundry, and even go to the grocery.  LUXURIES. today is day four of p90x!!!!  when i woke … Continue reading thursday.

monday.

P90X day one.  ugh.  didn’t even make it through the 58 minute workout.  but i really liked it!  i felt defeated by it, and now that i’ve had a few hours to contemplate my depression over the whole thing, i now feel excited to work and push myself until i CAN make it through the workout. of course, that was one video.  tomorrow is a … Continue reading monday.

thursday.

did the p90x fit test and barely passed.  omg.  i’m THAT out of shape?  oy.  but YOU try doing jumping jacks for 2 whole minutes! it’s kinda hard. so yesterday was ash wednesday, signifying the beginning of LENT.  i didn’t grow up in a church that celebrated (for lack of a better word) the lenten fast or ash wednesday or fat tuesday, for that matter. … Continue reading thursday.
