The first few days are the easiest :)


Friday, May 03, 2013

I remember this from before: the first few days of a new diet/fitness plan are the easiest. Your motivation is high and usually you haven't developed any nagging muscle aches from working out. Well, my glutes and hips are throbbing from all the walking and dancing, but that's because I'm not stretching properly, and is therefore my own fault.

So yesterday I downloaded a bunch of different apps, and signed up on a bunch of different fitness sites, hoping that the new game theory will motivate me to work out more. I'm finding I like the idea of tracking steps walking the baby, so I get to try out the pedometer app today. Assuming it's not raining.

Last night was teaching night, and I didn't get much dancing in before I had to leave, which means I not only have a boatload of homework to do this weekend, I also have to hurry and cram in this Shimmymob choreography before Sunday. Sigh.

Yesterday I forgot to study for the ACE. SLACKER!!! lol. There are only so many hours in the day.

After Mother's Day, things calm down around here for a couple of weeks. I am looking forward to just focusing on the dance I want to focus on, making new classes for my beginners, and maybe actually getting some work done on my piece for the October show.

    Nothing like a foam roller to ease the ache in the hips and glutes. Also, hot baths help if you don't have any health conditions that make those a bad idea. I have also discovered that L-Glutamine takes away the delayed onset muscle soreness so well that I use it every day: best dance advice I ever received from a nutritionist!
