Friday 6 - 7:30am Bikram Cambie - Roxana

YAY - We slept last night and I made it to yoga this morning. It has been a rough three weeks of sleeplessness. Hopefully, the boy gets back to some sort of normalcy before we go away. (I can't wait to go away!!!!)

Right knee bursa and left elbow bursa are recovering from some dance bonks on Tuesday. I rolled my facecloth to put under my knee for a couple of the kneeling ones and that changed the pressure point and allowed me to do the postures.

I had a really good class. I was choreographing in my head for most of it. At one point I wrote an angry letter to strata and then I got back to choreographing.

Monday 6 - 7:30am Bikram Cambie - Jan

I had a pretty good class today. It was hot during balancing series but I didn't do too bad. I was beside the other Harbour dancer so that made me try not to give up. It felt like the heat got hot and then she turned it off and just simmered for a while.

It was hard to get up this morning!

Sunday 10:07 - 11:07 Skate E Spot (30mins)

The boy and I har some cuddle time at the start. He wasn't into skating but he did eventually steal my board and sat and pushed around. When he sat and played with Boo I got a half hour in. I did line one five times game. Now, I gotta do it faster.

I worked on line two. It is even slower than line one.

Our area was quite busy with pedestrian traffic today. It was a beautiful morning.

Friday 12-1:30 Ballet - Eva

Caitlin met me at Harbour today. She did really good. I had so much fun. I forget how much I like ballet. I have to take class more often.

This was a level 1/2 class and it was pretty easy. I want to feel more confident and take level 3 again.

Friday 9:16 - 10:06 Skate E spot (50 mins)

Today I played my line game. I tried to do line one, five times in a row without making a mistake. I made it to four.

I started working on line two. That is a tricky one. I'm going to start with line two tomorrow and then I'm going to do line one five times in a row.

The boy didn't skate until we got home. Maybe he will skate more tomorrow.

Tuesday 6 - 7:15 Bikram Cambie - Shunshinez

I had a good class yesterday morning. However, by the time I got out of my car and walked into school something was wrong with my lower back and it got progressively worse. It was seizing but not shooting pain. Jonny gave me a back pill and I was able to sleep but I am taking it easy today.

Sunday 9:50 - 10:30 Skate E Spot (40 mins)

We made it through one of the longest wet spells I can remember. The sun came out and we had a beauty of a day. If the boy would have napped during nap time we would have gotten two skates in. Oh well, we got a morning skate and an afternoon swim. Not bad!

The sidewalk trees in the large circle planters are gone. This means less shade in E spot. It was extremely sunny up at E spot.

The boy had a great skate. We were working on push, push, push, and up!

Friday 6 - 7:15am Bikram Cambie - Roxana

I had a great class today. Was it because I had such a long break? Was it Roxana? Was it because I was so sleepy?

I didn't go Monday or Thursday because they didn't have 6am's, Tuesday I was tired, and Wednesday I had to go and pick up our fundraising doughnuts. One more week of Krispy Kremes!!

Oh well - one more tomorrow and then three days off!!

Wednesday 6- 7:30am Bikram Cambie - Roxana

I didn't miss anything. I fell out of two standing bows - 2/4.

Tuesday 6 - 7:30am Bikram Cambie - Mari

I didn't have a very good class. I didn't have any fight in me. 0/4 for the standing bows. I missed: one standing head to knee, one balancing stick, both left triangles... and that is it. I did remember my balancing stick corrections from yesterday and it is less work this new way. I was trying too hard before.

There aren't as many people there on Tuesdays. A lot of people left early. Mari mumbled something under her breath about it but I don't know what she said. I hate leaving early to get to school. I am happy to not be leaving early this whole week.

2 down - 3 to go!

Monday 6 - 7:30am Bikram Cambie - Mari

My challenge for the week: 5 6am classes / try to focus and don't think / hold everything until the end.

I got a 0/4 for my standing bow. I didn't hold any of them to the very end.

Mari gave me corrections in the balancing stick: suck in stomach, control ribs, no back bend, hip down. I didn't realize I was back bending a little bit during it. But I can see that now because is dance you want to try and keep your back up - so I must have kept that feeling a little bit. I like getting new corrections - but why can't you give them to me years ago? Now I have to break my bad habits. But late than never I suppose.

I tried to not think. My mind kept going to an e-mail that I got from Gloria about meeting Thursday morning at 8am. (Which means I would have to leave yoga early or not go Thursday.... all to make up for a day that I was sick?? I hope she can find another time but maybe I should just accommodate her. Another part of me thinks if I accommodate everyone I will never find the balance I seek in my life. \

I tried to focus on breathing in an out and would go back to this as soon as I noticed my mind had drifted off again. Then I thought, at least I am not drifting off to my brother, which would make me think for a second about him, then I would go back to my breathing. (I did think about getting Acrow to tattoo over Sam's tattoo.)

That girl that I thought I recognized from Harbour is from Harbour. She does ballet on Sundays. I have to get back to ballet class. Once a week would be great - now where to fit it in?
