56 minutes cardio belly dance, was not quite ready for another killer 84 minutes yoga session.

I've got pilates tomorrow a.m. if I have no trouble with neighbor noise in getting to sleep tonight, but even if I do, "there's a meditation 'app' for that ... (which has actually helped me hold on to my job for the past few months despite wee hour noise)"

In the six years of practice, had never been informed about arm strength levels needed for a jumpback without killing my balls of feet or damaging my toes (because I don't have the flexibilty to help realize it for me--i.e. doing all that cat-cow and forward bends do not improve that flexibility much) ... but I can finally do one with some grace ... exploring that transition sometime in December, hopefully ...

... soreness from my workout file from yesterday (and that is pretty much ALL the exercise I'd done, so I know it's that ... I'd been exhausted from missing sleep, working too hard, and commuting too long) ... sore particularly in my lower abs, shoulders/arms, and upper legs ... plus doing many chores today --- the day off perfect for work on that ...

27 minutes 5 Rhythms conscious dance modality to Tribe by Gabrielle Roth and the Mirrors ...
no warmup had been necessary .. this accounts for the short duration ...

84 minutes that mp3. It was flawed in execution ... but it was far from makeshift, people ...
it got me to stop thinking ... it got me to sweat ...

I sort of almost nailed crow ... I'm much more the natural backbender than arm balancer (yeah ... butterfly stroke in swimming had been nearly four sizes and more robust health status ago .. even then, I hadn't quite the arm strength or endurance) ... so playing against type = growth ...

and ... ya know ... an inversion-free practice* needs greater creativity in its authorship ... so, I'm with this one for awhile ...

Oh, it's a good thing my batteries ran down by inadvertently recording sounds from the interior of the backpack I stuffed the mp3 recorder in, probably off and on, for a total of nearly 8 hours!

Because then I had incentive to upload the file to iTunes on the Dell ...

Lo and behold, the part I had not gotten to (in listening to) ... of the now newly-named "Ganesh Fusion Flow Yoga by SEA Change" ... has more recorded upstairs neighbor noise in the background (even when recorded in "Meeting Mode" ...

It could be an F.M.L. moment, but I choose to look at it as an opportunity to practice Pratyahara to the second power ... live new extraneous noise mixed with pre recorded extraneous noise ...

Never said I was building a home recording studio ... if I can't afford (time, energy,money wise) to attend classes at a yoga studio, I certainly don't have the bucks to erect a home recording venue ...

Well, my arms, legs, shoulders; and upper & lower abs are sore from yesterday's SEA change yoga "recording session" ... [which I got no chance to fully review ... going through half of it, I did find enough bloopers] ....

Did between 47 & 48 min. cardio belly dance about from Derek Beres music...

Still things rage on at the job ... but now, there are deadlines ... and perhaps bridges will be reconstructed very soon ... between the communications barriers ...

I create practically all my recording sessions under the influence of Runa or a tall black iced tea sweetened with Stevia ... have to be satisfied with the recording sessions before I upload them to the Dell laptop in iTunes ... so, I'm halfway through reviewing the last session ... at least "Meeting Mode" seemed to not pick up the continual racket from upstairs ...

18/18 did a different practice (for me) jivamukti yoga from yogadownload. This was actually a video class on my ipod, but I just listened. Not being vegetarian, I suppose I can't say I did the full practice, at least as far as the instructor explained it, although I have not actually eaten meat today...it was nice with the breathing and chanting to begin before the asanas...

I did day 14 of the Destiny and Desire meditation, not very well, the audio was cutting out every minute or so, very long pauses. I just did so hum until I was tired of it, it was supposed to be a 20 minute meditation, and I'm sure I listened for more than that before shutting it down, with all the long pauses.

tonight I listened to day 20 of the gratitude meditation, this one played fine, and was a treat to listen to and watch...

So, I tested in at 102 mg/dL this morning ...all,things considered, very acceptable to me ... and could have been expected ... I'd practiced vinyasa for quite a while ... and it was too workout-y to center me much - so it had to have been effective exercise in this regard ...

Thus, NOT true what those "old wives" say about the smell of sugary food that is bad for you, causing anything to happen to you ... unless you actually EAT it ...

25min of yoga at home today. today would've been my last chance to make class at the gym for the month because of my work schedule, but my folks were up visiting from the lower 48, and wanted to do a day trip. had kind of a nerve wracking drive back through the mountain passes: may get another 10-15min in tonight yet...

84 minutes - cut another mp3 of S.E.A. Change (yes, I said 70 ... but I needed a LOT of yoga... in actuality, I'd really lost track of the time despite two clocks within 15 feet of each other ...)

phumpheted on teaching myself pranayama ... and the corework was daunting ...

but right now, I am (along with my co-worker) caught in the middle of a power struggle between two departments at work ... and need a strong core -- both physically and mentally ...

But, 84 minutes is spitting distance from 70 ... imho

Umm, it's still yoga ... not fusion ... I know at least one yoga teacher who teaches a yoga class full of crunches ...

I'd had a live 3-wick Slatkin & Co. candle going ... a scent called "Homemade Cookies" ... if the nutmeggy vanilla-y smell didn't get to me ... hmmm ... insulin resistance ...??

My insides are a little stagnant from the stress at the job ... I will do another recording though ... I am targeting for it to take a little over 70 minutes, and able to be used on a fairer a.m. as well as primarily p.m.

And a lot less counting aloud. My constitution can't take that ...

Oh, a friend of the family ... she changes the subject and ignores it totally, when I bring up my diabetes ... she does not want to hear of it. Her rejection of this and (and, I know, it's only a part of) me ... is God's protection ...

I would not be shutting her out. But there will be a distance ... I actually have nothing in common with her except my relative age ...

On the other hand, I am getting sympathy from a long-lost cousin, and methinks I will send her a gift. And, irony of ironies, my sister has really warmed up to me ... we could not have been circling more of on a distance orbit for years ...

This practice will generate tapas, without killing my knees ...

emoticon some arm balances thrown in - camatkarasana, kakasana I think ...

Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect. Chief Seattle

Just as a meadow craves nourishment from the sun and water from the mountaintop, we humans have a deep need to be together. Show gratitude for the loving connections you have with others by being their lifeline as well.

I am deeply grateful for my close connections with others of like mind.

I ended up doing both meditation challenges this morning, so day 13m Faithful me, and day 18, changing seasons.

I got this link from an e-mail, it's a little different perspective on yoga from a strength training blog... www.girlsgonestrong.com/yoga-it-does

17/18 with detox yoga #2, some long holds in a lunge position, I skipped the binding, and still had to rest in child's pose for a moment in the middle...

Started the day with "inspired me" from the Chopra challenge...day 12, and ended with day 18 of the gratitude challenge, landscapes and oceans.

79 minutes my SEA change yoga mp3 file ... really go into it this time ... back in business with wheel pose ... knees did not hurt again (yet?) ...

Beginning to really feel good about my recordings, and my practice - I have just downloaded the Coco Finaldi "Let it Flow" video, and am previewing it for right speech ... her class is one of a kind ... I know she teaches in Vancouver, Canada ... umm, that accent ....

Yah, the Western Canadian accent - that's one of the reasons that I'd splurged on live belly dance classes ... East Coast/light Nuyorican lilt is easier to listen to ... and she WAS able to teach me three-quarter shimmy ... now her price per lesson - bulk price - tripled

As I stay in gratitude for the change of seasons, I welcome change in my life.

15/18 another lunar flow, a little different than yesterday's with many similarities. Started and ended with savasana, and very relaxing movements, but some backbends, forward bends.

Started the day with day 10, passionate me, and ended with day 16 gratitude meditation about flowers.

My actions are in alignment with cosmic law.

Nov 22: 21/30 It's almost impossible to look at a vista of the highest mountain peaks in the world, or across a vast canyon, or watch powerful oceans waves lapping at the shore, and not take a breath before saying, Wow!
I see the world with new eyes today, and I am profoundly grateful

51 minutes cardio belly dance to selected, ordered tracks to a different CD.

Really, of my couple albums, only the Belldance Superstars VII has the finger-cymbal-ready music (and the slackier pace .... I'll spare you yogis the cultural, technical terms for the type of music (or what little I may know about them...)

14/18 lunar flow from yogadownload. This was so wonderful, a gentle, relaxing flow that began and ended with savasana....a little slice of heaven!

I did the Chopra meditation yesterday morning and this morning, I think days 8 and 9, and did day 15 of the gratitude meditation this evening, a different one, gratitude for fungi! I like the focus on nature though, I love being outdoors...
