Weekends and stress...

Hello X'ers! I have been successful in keeping up with my workouts this weekend. My mom and sister are visiting, and they were lucky enough to witness me doing yoga and legs and back. Yoga went very well this week! I feel much more flexible! I've been able to put a flat hand on the ground for quite a few exercises! The split things are still pretty killer, but I will try, try, try, every time I do it! I again loved the side stand thing. It's like the middle of the pushup to side stand exercise. I feel so powerful balancing on one hand and my stacked legs. I think it might be time for me to try to put one of my legs in the air! Next time...

Legs went well too! Because I fell off the wagon in my stressfulness last week, I had not done this workout in weeks! OMG! I forgot a lot of it, but it came back. Those lunges on your toes the whole time are NUTTY. Again, I think being a dancer as a child helps this because I've learned to balance on my "tippy toes" as Tony likes to call them. Tomorrow is Kenpo, and I really think I need it!

I'm a bit off right now... with all the personal things I've been going through, I'm having a hard time staying focused. I'm at a point in my life where I thought I knew exactly where I was going, and that all ended. It's hard! I am managing to continue my workouts, so that's good. They keep me grounded and help relieve stress. I'm doing the best I can with school... my grades are definitely not suffering. It's just that I'm having a really hard time with this abrupt change... it is weird thinking you knew what was going on, and then all of sudden you don't. Where to go from here? I guess I can look at it as exciting to have all the options in the world. I'll just have to keep reminding myself of that. Change can be good right? I just hope I figure it out eventually...


  1. A person once told me that when a relationship ends initially it hurts like hell, but in time the pain lessens and you are able to move foward and be happy again. Hang tough, know this is temporary and stay focused on YOU.. Everything will work itself put if you do.

  2. I'm a new follower to your blog, but just wanted to say whatever it is that you're going through, I will keep you in my prayers! Give it all to the Lord - if He brings you to it, He will bring you through it! Blessings to you!

  3. I know what you mean. Personal obstacles will always be trying to get in your way, and try to sidetrack you. Stay focused, and keep your eye on the prize-family, school, health..I know you'll do great, you already are! Keep it up, and everything else will fall in place, you can only do your best...I won't say the rest of that phrase, because I know you know it!! :) haha
