Whew, I feel like I'm not here much at all these days w/ all the ski trips/classes. FSN, sorry to hear about your foot. Can you wear a hard boot to work out? I've trained a dancer who did that. GR, ugh, I wouldn't mind doing all those shots if it made me feel better but I'd hate to have to go somewhere every day to have them done. Are they helping? Karla, good luck w/ your guests. We've been having problems w/ that in this area, too. I'm so thankful we remembered to turn ours off to the outside at least. SJ, there is something about the cold that turns my mind off, too. I can't keep track of my things these days. Then, I turn around and there it is!
I was at a Children's Specialist certification that past couple of days. It was crazy cold and we weren't even really skiing. It was a lot of standing around and having each person show drills for different scenarios. Brrrrr. I passed! So, this was a great eye opening thing for me, something I want to work on this year. At the end, the clinician came up to me and told me that a few people performed a step above the others (she put her hand above her head) and she wanted to let me know I was one of them and that I did an awesome job. So, the next day, all I remember is that she told me I did well and was thinking she told that to everyone. When I was talking to my son, he told me exactly what she had said. The question is why I didn't remember that! Had she told me something negative, you know I'd have made it much worst in my head! She'd asked me a lot of questions during my presentation and I assumed that meant I wasn't covering my bases. The thing is I'm such a cheerleader for everyone else! I need to start patting myself on the back.
I was supposed to teach this morning but there was a mess up at my other workplace and they put me on the schedule at the same time. I found a last minute sub but feel bad that I haven't been there in three weeks now. I don't think I've told you all that I signed up, w/ my daughter, for an intro package at a yoga/pilates studio. My daughter wanted to try it and I thought I'd support her. Plus, I want to see what non-gym yoga is like. I went to a class last night and still don't get yoga. I know it can be crazy hard but I've never been to a class that has been. I didn't feel much stretch, strength or anything, just movement from one pose to another. But,the instructor did try to get us to do this combination where you cross one foot over the other quad, reach down to the ground and then balance on your hands, some crow combination. Really? Did he notice that no one could do the crow? Even he fell out of it. I really need to turn off the group fitness/ personal training mind when I do classes.
