Wednesday 6-7:15 FLow Yoges - Erin -NYDC#27 - Sophie

This is the last day of my challenge. I didn't quite complete my challenge but I am proud of what I did do. Here is what I did:
Best news of the day: I got an appointment to get my screw out on January 30th. That means I will be running the Scotia Bank on June 24th. That was my goal in my head. I can't wait to run again. Carrie has already signed up for it. I will wait and sign up after I have done some practise runs.

For December I am going to do what I want when I want. I am going to play it by ear. But I still want to do lots of yoga and dance!

Monday 4-5:30 Hot Yoges - Lola - NYDC#26

Yesterday I missed two classes because I had the worst cramps. This is my challenge - I make the rules and there will be no guilt for that. I chowed Advils watched movies and went for a walk. Luckily they kicked in after Jonny and I had done the grocery shopping.. well.. at the end of the grocery shopping.

I got my flu shot today. I saw Williams there when I was leaving. It was good to see him. It has been a year.

Today's yoga class was really good. It was a small class of five people. I did all of the exercises. I did awkward pose with my left ankle up. I did toe stand.

Saturday 5-6 Hot Yoges - Will - NYDC#25

I came home from dance and changed clothes - thank Jonny for helping me! I left into the rainy darkness of my football city and went into the hot yoga room. I listened to Will talk about loving yourself and singing and then I came back to my love and we went for sushi!

Saturday 2:30- 3:30 Hip Hop - Richard - NYDC#24

Keli and Twiggers were supposed to come to this class with me. I didn't feel like going. It would have been awesome to have them come out and give me the extra boost to get me through the end of my challenge. Jonny made me go and gave me a pep talk reminding me I would feel guilty if I gave up at the end. I went and it was fine. I just needed to get up and go which is easier to do during the weekdays when I get and up and go and go and go. When it is a Saturday and I am relaxing it is more difficult.

The class was not that difficult. I should have tried the class after it - Jerome's Hip Hop 2/3 and then CJ's Street Jazz 2/3. These are two classes that I have never done and I would like to do soon. Maybe not next weekend - but soon!

Friday 4-5:30 Hot Yoges - Will - NYDC#23

It was HOT!

Today was an awesome day except for boiling Ian's pot. I registered Jonny and I for BCIT Adobe Illustrator course and I ordered a new Macbook Air!! YAY!! Jonny gets my baby.

I didn't have time to write yesterday .. but I tried to do awkward pose with my left heel up. Then I drove energy down my heel and tried to make it touch the ground. I don't know if that is a good way to go about it but at least I wasn't the tallest one in the class anymore. It was a nice burn for my thighs too.

Dinner.. pooped.. hungry.. hot.

Thursday 6-7:30 Hot Yoges - NYDC#22 - Azelia

I had an awesome class today. I focussed on breathing slowly. I drank a lot of water today and I think having yesterday off helped too.

Azelia surprised me and called as I was leaving school saying she was going to join me. YAY! It is more fun to go with friends.

I thought about Selina in my grade 10-12 class because she has a sore back. I found this on the internet for her and sent it to her on FB.

I thought about Jonny and cabbage rolls which are now in my belly. Yummy!

Tuesday 6-7:30 Hot Yoges - Taryn - NYDC#21 - Sophie and Azelia!!

I got to see Leo today and he liked my hair and asked about my ankle. What a good yogi!

I thought of an awesome name for my first baby blog - cause you know I am going to have a blog for that. Screwed and Pregnant - a first time mom's experiences of pregnancy with a Balinese screw in her ankle. hahaha... kinda funny. Hopefully, I will have the screw out by then and I can come up with another title... like Pregnant Bitch. HAHAHAHA!! that is even better... and probably true.... sorry Jonny!

I thought about Heidi and Jen doing the Body by Vi challenge. I thought - ya it would be awesome to be able to lose weight quick and easy. And then I thought... I don't believe other diet gimics why would I .. or anyone believe this one. They do have some interesting strategies .. kinda like a pyramid scam.. I mean scheme... and vacation makeover prizes... is that what is making it so popular? Good work business people in suits - good work in designing a diet gimic that has been able to con ... still more people. OF COURSE you are going to loose weight if you drink a shake instead of eating. DUH! You will loose weight if you starve yourself too. I will TRY to keep my opinions to myself and let Heidi and Jen do their thing but I am not falling for it. I have worked hard to get away from being an anorexic retard. My goal is to be normal. I believe in eating healthy and working out. Input calories are less than output calories. I don't need a pyscho diet gimic challenge to make me more psycho than I alaready am.

AND... I feel bad for thinking about something so selfish and vain when there are other people in the world that don't have enough food to eat.

Enough said.

Yoga today was supposed to be fun with my two friends there but it was gruelling today. I was so thirsty. I kept telling myself I could have water after the next pose and then my water was done and I just wanted to run out of the room and fill my water bottle back up.. .but I didn't.. I couldn't leave.. I just drank my spit... and carried on. I took breaks... I was just pooped and hot. I have a break today to see Breaking Dawn. Tomorrow will be a good class!

Sushi after was fun with the girls!! We have to do it again... no really.. we HAVE to do it again!!

Monday 4-5:30 - Lola - NYDC#20

I did everything in class. I am still taking it easy on my right hamstring. I can't wait until it doesn't hurt anymore.

When I got to class and laid on my matt I thought... who is wearing perfume.. how rude. HAHAHA.. it was me! I squirted myself this morning which I never usually do... I was hating myself.

The Alpha sushi guy was there again. We said hi in the hall. He started in May. He is doing really well.

I thought about Jonny and I's one year wedding anniversary and what we are going to do. I think we should go to the Sylvia and make that our thing. I don't have to drive and it is a place with memories from both of our families.

Jonny and I went to the Dollar Store in Yaletown to get treats for my shoebox. I spent $26!!! TOO MUCH! Then some suits barged through the sidewalk and we ... forget about it. We are doing good and they are mean and think they own the world.. and they probably own the world by doing bad things to people.

Sunday 3:40-5:40 Hip Hop - JP - NYDC#19

We did the same routine as last Wednesday. I am glad we did the same routine cause I was able to work out the parts that were tripping me up and enjoy the combo.

OH YA!! Michelle and Cierra were at Harbour today! YAY! Frank Hurt represent! 

Sunday 2:40-3:40 Grooving - Richard - NYDC#18 - Azelia

Azelia came to class. That is the first time I have seen her since before Bali. So, that made the class more fun.

Richard did some random grooving then 3 different 8 counts. Then we cooled down. I didn't get that sweaty and that was what I was worried about - that by the end of two classes I was going to be drenched but it was just right.

Jonny likes my little feetsies.

Sunday 8-9 Hot Yoges - Angela - NYDC#17

Yesterday was a cleaning disaster. I got up and went to 8am yoges and the teacher didn't show up. I decided I would come back for the 12 Flow with Erin - I love Erin... no problem.. that will make up for the morning. I get there and that class started at 11:30!! WHAT? I am embarrassed to say that I got really angry and frustrated. I had planned to dance later that day but I gave up. How many times can you try and fail in one day? How many times can you change and walk down to a place and be turned away. I didn't feel like trying a third time at yoga or even a first time at Harbour. SO... I cleaned the house. did the laundry. and attacked the sewing pile.

This morning's class wasn't on my schedule because I am dancing twice today but I couldn't leave yoga till Monday. I went to yoga and it was a good class. I haven't taken the hour class in a while and it was a nice change. It is so much easier than the 1.5 hour class. I got used to doing doing the one hours when I used to go to 6am and the 1.5 were way too hard. I miss having yoga already done in the morning but I do not miss rushing to work. I know I am getting a better work out by waiting till the afternoon and doing the longer, harder class.

Friday 4-5:30 Hot Yoges - Erin - NYDC#16

I LOVE ERIN! There is no cheating in her class and you are going to get a lot of corrections. Good times. I was exhausted but happy after this class. I wish all the teachers gave corrections. There is nothing cool with doing something wrong for years and having no one correct you. It is unsafe. Correct people already!! I see obvious corrections all the time and some WHY teachers walk right past them. Makes me not like my studio. THEN, you get a teacher like Erin who comes in and corrects your ass and makes you try. Bikram style. If you can you must.

I didn't get to say thank-you at the end of class.  I should have but she was talking. I should have. I was thinking I could when I came back to fill my water bottle but she was gone. I am going to think thank-you now and maybe she will feel it. I wonder if she felt that? Jonny just burped.

Thursday 6-7:30 Hot Yoges - Christine - NYDC#15

I am halfway there! YAY!!

It was really hot in class today. I did really well until we got to the spine strengthening when I took a break.

I thought about Planning 10. I was thinking about maybe putting their project online in case they need it at home. Then I thought - why? They don't care.

I thought about the warm-up I did with the Ipad and projector. That was fun. It is a different way to warm up. New and different is fun ... at least for a second. Then they will remember it is a warm up.

Azelia texted today and she is coming to Harbour on Sunday. SO.. I am going to adjust my monthly plan again. I am going to go to Grooving and then Hip Hop on Sunday... one after the other. I am going to be sweaty!! Maybe I will bring a dry T? Maybe I will put in some pony tails and wear a hat? I will think of something!!

Thanks again to my supportive hubby for putting up with the challenge! LOVE YOU!

Wednesday 5:30-6:30 Hip Hop - NYDC#14

It was a smaller class today. I kinda got it. I am sure we will do this one again so I might go over it a few times. 

Monday, November 14, 2011

Tuesday 6-7:30 Hot Yoges - Taryn - NYDC #13

Ok - Jonny and I went to support Carrie when she got her tattoo on Friday and ... well.. the challenge got put on pause and in my weakened state I think I caught a cold. I slept most of the long weekend but I am back on track now! AND - I am ready to appreciate feeling good.

Yoga was tough and hot today. My eyes were stinging with the sweat. My right baby toe felt like there was a piece of glass in it but there was no glass in it - maybe a burst blood vessel or pinched nerve? I can still feel it but it is not as bad as it was during triangle. I didn't want to put any weight on my baby toe.

I made it through the class and I am looking forward to dancing tomorrow. I had to rearrange my challenge a bit. I added in extra classes to make up for the weekend and I kept in a few extra just in case I need to take another little break - for life things - like get a car battery after school or see a movie with Belle!

Friday 10-11 Core Fursion - Sarah - NYDC#12

There are a lot of exercises I want to remember and right down ... to use in my warm-ups.

One hour class.
1 dowling
2 blocks

I will write more later if I remember. 

Thursday 6-7:30 Hot Yoges - Christine - NYDC#11

Alpha sushi bartender was in the front row and I kept thinking of sushi and getting hungry. 

Wednesday, November 9, 2011

Wednesday 5:30-6:30 Hip Hop - JP - NYDC #10

We did a Cierra song today - RIIIIIDING.... or maybe she says.. RIIIIIIDDDEE ME?

It was a good class. Nice and sweaty.

Tuesday, November 8, 2011

Tuesday 6-7:30 Hot Yoges - Taryn - NYDC#9

Angela stood beside me today. It was fun to have a teacher beside me.

I felt focussed with my breath today but not with my mind. I was thinking about school and projects and when and how I was going to squeeze everything in. I still can't get over how soon this semester is over! YAY!! NO MORE P10!

Monday, November 7, 2011

Monday 4-6:30 - Lola - NYDC#8

I thought I had a three day week this week. I didn't find out till last block from my Planning 10 students that we have Monday off... not Thursday. The calendar from the office staff says Thursday. So, my mind was wrapped around all the little changes I will have to make.

I thought about Lori Wilson. I thought about Emma - cause we are having sushi right ... now!

It was a good class - small and all female.

Sunday, November 6, 2011

Sunday 3:40-4:40 Hip Hop - JP - NYDC#7

Lori was taking Grooving in the class before mine! I am glad she is dancing. She used to go to Graceland and not drink just to dance once a week. I told her maybe I would come earlier next week and take Grooving with her. I would be really sweaty then! I put my toque on at the end of class when my hair got too sweaty. It was hot but at least it was out of my face. We shoulda got a couple of those $1.99 toques in the states.

I think I like this class better than Wednesdays. It is smaller and there aren't as many cool kids. We did a routine that we did a couple of weeks ago on a Wednesday... baby youuuuu.... da da da da da da da.... baby youuuuu... ? I don't know it and I don't feel like looking it up. I have said this before... I like doing routines two times. It gives my brain a break because it has had time to soak it in.

Saturday 8-9:30 Hot Yoges - Christine - NYDC#6

I realized that you can't be good at morning classes if you don't do a lot of morning classes. I am so much stiffer and wobbly in the morning. My stomach was growling at the end. 

I thought - if it isn't too expensive I could get a yoga teacher in for the whole day and my Planning 10 class could do yoga for the health unit. 

Friday 6-7:15 Flow - Katherine - NYDC#5

Today isn't even Katherine's class. It is a sign that I should have her in to teach and not Will. I was going to go to Popping tonight but we finished our dance meeting so fast. I was able to get home and do this class. We did hand stands and headstands. It was a fun class.

Breakout small teams has been moved to Breakout. So, I can do yoga on Monday Nov. 28! I will have 31 days in my challenge!!! 

Friday, November 4, 2011

Thursday 6-7:30 Hot Yoges - Will - NYDC#4

Well, this was not the class I was expecting. It was fun and different and a nice change from the norm but not a class a would normally take. He didn't do the full 26 postures and that is fine. I was sweating and I got a good work out. He did some cool breathing like modern double bounces and exhaling. He sang the last 5 minutes of class.

There were three new people in class. I think if that was my first yoga class I would not have wanted to go back. I hope those people come back and try a different teacher.

I was thinking that he might be a good teacher to come in and teach my students. He is entertaining and he is sending a good message. He is definitely unforgettable. But then I thought. Katherine would do headstands with them. I don't know.. I think he might be fun for the kids. Maybe I will see how much he costs.

Overall, I had an inspiring, different class.

Wednesday 5:30-6:30 Hip Hop - JP - NYDC#3

JP isn't teaching the same routine two weeks in a row anymore. I wonder what if he teaches the same thing on Sunday? I will find out soon enough.

Jonathan is the best husband ever. He is very supportive and loving and I think about him all the time. I am the luckiest girl in the world!

JP had his little friend team teaching with him. That is cool that he has brought him under his wing and given him this opportunity.

I wish I didn't sweat so much. It is rainy and dark. Day 3 DONE! 

Tuesday, November 1, 2011

Tuesday 6-7:30 Hot Yoges - Taryn - NYDC #2

November Yoga Dance Challenge Day 2... DONE! I love this challenge. I am going to feel so good at the end of this. I am already feeling good. YAY!

Today I thought about Ms. Cameron. I added her page on FB with my Frank Hurt Dance account. I can't believe I didn't think of looking her up sooner. A visit is long overdue!

I thought about Latisha and Jessica doing the dance for Remembrance Day assembly. I think it is going to be awesome. I can't wait to see what they come up with.

I thought about Jonny and how much I missed him. This challenge is taking me away from my love. He said it was ok though. I love you Jonny.. and now.. it is hang out with Jonny time!! Until manana!!!
