I've been a giant ball of stress lately. I'm trying to just keep up at this point and I'm doing okay but could really use some time to just not do things. My husband suggested that we see a movie two weeks ago and my first thought wasn't whether... Read more

I've re-started The New Rules of Lifting for Women and I've been slowly increasing the amount of weight that I'm lifting in things like squats. I was really happy today because I was squatting with 15 pounds, which is double what I used when I f... Read more

It's 15 days until our wedding, 6 until my next performance and I'm pretty chill about everything, all things considered. Most of the things that are left are just things were we were told to get in touch two weeks before. Everything else is pla... Read more

I've had a pretty stressful week... I'm working with a new client who's never done anything animated before and they just have to see things and find what they want. Luckily, I have an intermediary between us -- I've never been more grateful for... Read more
PT aftermath...
Friday, February 25, 2011      2 comments

So, the aftermath for this round of PT is that I feel mostly better, but I'm not at 100%. I'm allowed to go back to strength training and regular dance class, but I still have to do the PT exercises twice a day for 4-6 more weeks. (I'm so sick o... Read more

I always have trouble sorting through all the things that I want to do into things that I actually do. Right now I'm at one of those transitional times again. My PT has cleared me for most things, but I'm not well enough to go back into gymnasti... Read more

Just a report... The zumba class was fun! It figures that I'd stick with and actually like a class that's essentially all dance. It also got my heart rate way up there (my average was 168) and I burned 572 calories. We had a weird inter-regnum w... Read more

I've had a crappy set of weeks, so here's a recap of what's going on with me. After Thanksgiving, I missed two gymnastics classes in a row and then (grrrr!)scratched my cornea taking out my contact. Luckily I was working from home that day, but ... Read more

I've missed my second gymnastics class of the week because it fell on Thanksgiving, but I did get in two good workouts on my own. Like I said in another entry, I've always had a list going of "things that would be good to do" that I just haven't... Read more

I measured my resting heart rate and took another fitness test the other day, and both had improved. My new RHR is 64! My old measurement on that fitness test was 42, which placed me right at the upper border of "Good". This time I scored a 45 w... Read more

I've been debating adding a dance class to my schedule for a long time. There are lots of really good places to take classes in the city (Alvin Ailey, anyone?), and there are a lot of things that I need to work on as a dancer. I've come close to... Read more
