18 Weeks left
Wednesday, June 01, 2011
Well, I have been doing ok- I started out with bad sneakers and immediately developed shin splints (hate those things) but I still have been able to dance some and do workout DVD's. I think they are just about healed- hopefully the new shoes I ordered will be here by the end of the week so that I can resume walking/jogging the track- favorite non-dance exercise by far!
I have been struggling with my mid-afternoon slumps. I would really like to focus on dance in the afternoon while the kids take a nap, but lately I have been napping with them. I really hate doing that since it throws me off for the rest of the day. I don't get to bed when I ought to so I have a difficult time getting up, therefore causing the nap again. Hopefully Friday I will 'reset' myself since I have to go to work.
My workshop is coming faster than I can believe. I still have 18 weeks which on the outset seems like a way off, but realistically I know it is just around the corner. I really need to focus on the DVD's of the instructors who will be at camp, but I take lessons with someone who teaches a fairly different style- I really like my instructor, but the style she is teaching conflicts with the style I like. I am enough of a beginner that this tends to be rather confusing. I hope that I can work through these issues and still take classes from her- I think she has some valuable knowledge, but I wish that she taught more of the style I like - not only is she really nice, but she is so darn close to my house! Ah well, this too shall pass.
