Dancing starts again!
Sunday, September 13, 2009      1 comments

Tomorrow night I'm starting an Adult Ballet class at the school I took tap at last year. They'll also be having Adult Tap again, but that likely won't start until October or November (the teacher is pregnant and due either late this month or ea... Read more
On names and naming

On Sunday I had to introduce myself to a group of folks, most of whom I'd never met before. My instinct was to introduce myself as Renee Marriedname. Not Renee Maidenname Marriedname, just Renee Marriedname. I had second thoughts of course --... Read more
Back home

Well, I'm back home from a week with many of my closest friends. It was a wonderful, wonderful week, making it all that much harder to be back home. I wish the farmers' market were today instead of tomorrow -- I have no desire to go to t... Read more
Need to keep positive

This past week was the best I've had in ages. I stayed OP, exercised 5 out of 7 days for at least 25 min (significantly longer on most days), and made very few non-healthy food choices. I'm up .6. WTF????????? I know I didn't hav... Read more

Thursday is when DH and I go out to breakfast. When we got back I was ready for a nap. I stayed awake, but I'm not sure how. I wanted to take a blood sugar reading but the meter was upstairs (as was the bed) and, well, getting upstairs didn't... Read more
Another day of dance!
Wednesday, June 03, 2009      2 comments

Today I felt exhausted in the middle of the day, but felt good enough this evening to get in my dance practice. I really think I work myself harder than I've ever been worked in any class. In class there are little bits of down-time during tra... Read more
That didn't last long

Yesterday I did my full strength training workout (though with lighter weights than I'd been doing), core and lower body exercises and dance practice and felt great! Afterwards DH and I went grocery shopping, and I was able to finish everything... Read more
Reflecting on the past and thinking about the present

I posted this on one of my message boards earlier today, and decided to share it here because it's something I've been thinking about for a while. Can you imagine how different life would be if we knew as kids -- or at least teenagers -- al... Read more
Back to Basics
Thursday, May 28, 2009      2 comments

Oh. My. Goodness. I decided that even though I'd like the support and feedback of an adult ballet class, I can still work on the barre exercises and other basic moves at home. I know them, I know proper technique, I sort-of have a mirror... Read more
Coincidence? Hmmmm....

First things first: this week marks my one year anniversary going to WW meetings! I'm proud of the changes I've made, but am ashamed at how much I've let it slide in recent weeks -- I know better than that! I know how to do this so no excuse... Read more
Trying to start a trend here
Tuesday, May 26, 2009      1 comments

Now that Spark gives 1 Spark Point per blog entry, per day, I try not to post early in the day lest I miss out on posting something *big*. Can you guess the result? Yup. Just look at the date of my last entry. I think you've got the pict... Read more
More hours in a day -- a good start!

Good morning all! I've been up for over two hours now and it feels so *good*!!! I've missed my morning hours and am glad to finally be getting them back. Fighting my sleep cycle has been a real challenge this time (okay, it's always a challen... Read more
A dilemma
Wednesday, May 20, 2009      3 comments

I'm finding myself torn over how to respond to the news of a friend's weight loss. I think my presence here shows that I think weight loss can be a good thing -- and I'd say that it is for my friend. But I don't think that it's a be-all an... Read more

Well, I made it through the dance recital! I'm still feeling exhausted (and didn't have the best weekend food-wise), but I did it! I still love performing, even though it felt strange to be doing it after such a long break. We did our... Read more
Ah, those unexpected landmines
Wednesday, May 13, 2009      4 comments

Well, I may have figured out what's been up with my eating for the past week. Last night I had a meltdown. I hadn't thought about this before, but the last time I was in a dance recital was when I was 18. Both of my parents were there (mo... Read more
