  1. Totally this! Congrats, KJ--I'm glad your work is recognizing you for your awesomeness.

    Muggle workout on deck for tonight. Yesterday I failed at all my goals. Apparently in relaxing my caloric intake goal for the rest of this week, I'm throwing out everything else as well. Whoops! Get back on the rest of things this evening with hip flexor stretches and some solid skincare. Still not having much luck finding a performance costume that matches the vision I have in my head.

    Yep. I've tracked for up to a year straight in the past. Now I just re-up the habit when I'm consciously trying to lean out, rather than maintain.
  5. January 27th. That is the date of my circus gym's next student showcase. I've decided I'm going to perform. I have until December 30th if I decide to chicken out (not likely) so I need to really commit to getting this thing going. Choreography and costume decisions. I have some rough ideas for both, but it's time to get something more solidly in place. Costume deadline is 1/13. Endurance & Strength. The planned concept for my routine is a string of ridiculous athletic skills. I need to not pass out or fall from the apparatus while doing this. Circus endurance - Put together in-air sequences of >2 mins at least three times every open gym. General endurance - Cardio at least once/week. With the coming winter weather, this will likely often be treadmill based. Strength - Muggle workouts (1 x week lower body, 1 x week upper body 'push') Flexibility. Circus skills always look better with straight and extended limbs. My hip flexors are my current sticking point for most things, I think. Direct hip flexor work once per week and general splits things twice. (After lower body muggle workout, at end of open gym, after weekly circus class) Self care. I've always been a person who has wanted a skincare routine and have never taken the time to create one. We'll start simple: Wash, tone & moisturize face once per day, every day.
