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.
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!!!!!!
thank you, sharon, for your so real answer. “derailed” is such an accurate term, when that kind of toxicity is at work. i don’t feel derailed (at this point) by my colleagues. i do, however, feel derailed by my own self. my body is SCREAMING at me to rest, but if i rest, that means i’ll let people down. i’ll cancel lessons and have to … Continue reading wednesday/thursday.
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.
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.
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.
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.
happy ash wednesday? are you supposed to wish people that? i’ve been lying on the couch this morning, reading the “required reading” for p90x. so far, this workout program is HIGH MAINTENANCE. i don’t have half the equipment they want me to have. i don’t have a heart rate monitor or a scale or pictures of myself in a sports bra. i have to get … Continue reading wednesday.
finally blogging again, after a crazy last two weeks of teaching and rehearsing and performing, oh my. just too many things required of me. i feel like i’ve been pulled in every single direction and i need an ashram to find my balance again. an ashram or a straight jacket or something. can i get a note from my doctor, please? how about this… please … Continue reading tuesday.
SNOW!!!! i love it! it’s really coming down, too! not in a blizzard, sideways sort of way, but like white rain. i can cancel my students today if i want to, and i probably should since this is a big week for me. but i don’t know. i am sitting at my desk, looking out the window at the beautiful snow, and there’s this dare … Continue reading monday.
