Teaching Dance Is Rough on the Body
Wednesday, September 11, 2013      3 comments

So I may have tweaked a muscle in my back today. I was going over a combination with my intermediate dance class today and I started to do a hinge off the floor (hard, but not incredibly advanced movement). Well, I felt something twinge in my ... Read more

I started the day with a beginning Pilates mat class. We did quite a bit of stretching. It was a great way to start the day. Then I did stuff around the house. Then I went back to work at 5:30 and spent 45 minutes working on choreography bec... Read more
I Love Dogs... When They're on a Leash.
Sunday, September 08, 2013      8 comments

So, I went for a run today (more of an interval workout since I alternate streets of walking and streets of running) and I got chased by 6, yes SIX, dogs. One was on a leash. That one didn't bother me. Three more were annoying little yappers ... Read more

Troy wins 66-3! Yay! Also a win for the Scarlet Knights! Woohoo! Ok, so I got in my workout with the Wii Just Dance, which was an absolute blast. I did the Swingin' 60s Just Sweat workout followed by a few single songs to round out an h... Read more
Finally Went For a Run!
Friday, September 06, 2013      4 comments

Well, I finally got out for that run. It's been weeks since my last one. I opted to start back on my 5K training program where I left off. So I did intervals: 2 minutes of walking, followed by 3 minutes of running, for 30 minutes. So my husb... Read more

Yep, it's Thursday! Which means I'm done with work for the week. (Well, tomorrow is housework day, but I get to stay home and get things done at home.) We did intervals for Pilates this morning and this evening. I also taught a 3-5 year ... Read more

Since I'm pressed for time, I'm going to have to make this quick. I didn't get in much movement over the weekend. But today it was back to dance and Pilates after a long weekend. This morning we did Cardio Pilates. Then I taught advanced... Read more

I totally went over calories for the first time in a LONG time. To be fair, because my job requires LOADS of movement each day, I usually have a massive quantity of calories to consume and I usually don't ever get there. Well, I don't work on ... Read more
Watching Ballet Videos
Thursday, August 29, 2013      2 comments

I've been watching ballet videos on youtube. I so remember when I could do some of that and when I dreamed the rest was actually possible to accomplish. Now I just admire the beauty and hope one day at least some of my students will achieve it... Read more

Yesterday's classes went pretty well. I started a contemporary combination with my advanced dancers last night, and they seem to like it. In Pilates we did intervals with a focus on arms. My triceps are really sore today. Today's classes... Read more

Mondays are long days, but I survived. We had a meeting this afternoon before dance classes started to discuss recital stuff. Yes, we are already talking about recital even though it's still a little more than 8 months away. I have no idea wh... Read more

Well, we never went for that walk. But yesterday, the hubbs mowed both the front and back yards, which are hilly, so I think he got his workout in. (We don't have a riding lawn mower.) And I washed and vacuumed both cars and swept the outsid... Read more

Yeah, we didn't get that walk in today. However, we opted for date night and did actually get out of the house. We went to Montgomery to watch Troy beat ASU in women's soccer. It was much fun! And we listened to a CD I've been wanting to lis... Read more

I know I haven't blogged in a few days. I haven't really had time. Been keeping up with work stuff, which means exercise. :) I had two Pilates classes (intervals today!) and two dance classes today. Plus I spent about 30 min. working on cho... Read more
