Still Fighting the good fight

Sunday, March 24, 2013

I am still trying to fight the good fight.

still struggling with the last 5 pounds.

I have upped my dancing. Not so much in desperation to lose weight but its the only way to increase in my dance skillz. although, I still need to decrease my "free dance" and up seriously on some drillz. but I have started doing 35-40 min of drilling 3x a week.

thats a change. and I am forcing myself to stay awake and not nap during the day. I have been pushing myself to get in SOME type of strength training.

as a result - well I'm watching much less tv lol. I can barely get in one tv show lol. but at least I exercise.

it feels good. I get in at least one exercise high in a day. and afterwards I feel awesome.

I notice I feel better when I eat a protein shake in the day. make my energy more steady throughout the day which is awesome.

I haven't noticed much in my body. But I do feel I need to do more stretching and maybe yoga type exercises. Work on my core and balance.

One step at a time.

    thanx grapple iris. and yeah - funny how dancing free style has actually improved SOME aspects of dancing cause in certain parts of the song I use a certain technique and dancing to them a lot has helped perfect it.

    Sounds like you have a great attitude.
It must be a little frustrating knowing you're THAT close, but heck: it's only a number. Sounds like you're moving around great so it's all good!

Sure, drill a little: sharpen those skills, add a few tools for your toolbelt: There's nothing like clean lines, sharp moves, and flashy combos, but don't let go of your free dance. It's important to feel comfortable moving in your own specific way and interpreting the music in a way your body feels comfortable with. I've seen dancers who have been technically impressive that have left me cold. On the other hand, I've seen dancers with only a few basic moves "connect" with the audience and express themselves through their dance that HELD me there and left me wanting more.

Shimmy ON!

    I have classical stretch actually. sometimes that actually makes me feel better than some of the other stuff I have hehe. maybe i will stick with that as it seems to affect me more sometimes.

I will check out shirataki noodles over pasta. thanx for that. haven't heard of it and I HATE spaghetti squash!

    Your fighting the good fight. WooHoo! If you stay the course in your healthy habits, you'll see results soon enough. Nothing like dancing for some great fitness minutes. Hug, hug -- Evelyn

    I found a great show on my local PBS channel, it's called classical stretch. She combines Tai chi,ballet,yoga and Pilates moves. Many are stretches to open up and loosen the body. It is all no impact and is much more of a workout than you would think! If you don't have it locally check YouTube or Amazon for the DVDs.

    I bet you could easily find a way to cut your sugar and starch to 100g a day or less, and the weight would probably FALL off of you! There are a lot of good-tasting substitutes for bread, noodles, and rice. Linda's Low Carb recipes has tried and tested recipes for cauli-rice, muffins in a mug (many varieties), and you can use either spaghetti squash or shirataki noodles in place of pasta. Your energy levels will zoom!
