Congratulations on getting cast for the Lyra show, though Thanks! It's actually more than just lyra - it includes silks, trapeze, sling, lyra, tippy lyra, rope, straps, contortion, and even invented apparatus! I've been cast in the lyra/straps combo number, specifically on lyra, which is good because my body and straps are not friends. I am not that level of masochist. I'm really excited about it because I've been mostly focused on silks for years with brief flirtations with lyra here and there and I do love it, so this is the kick in the pants I need to go and improve fast. 7 hours ago, Mad Hatter said: Cool that you got into the show! But please take care of yourself. I understand that you want to keep up your skills and get in enough practice time, but perhaps doing yoga AND lyra is a bit excessive? Maybe it'd be better to really focus your energy on what you need to do for the show and use the rest for a speedier recovery. Yeah, I thought that, too, so I blew off yoga day entirely, took a nap for an hour, took some Advil cold and sinus, and just focused all of my limited energy on lyra. We had another bad night last night (at least it was only 2-5am of baby screaming this time, so... improvement?), but I feel no worse than I did yesterday, minus some pretty intense shoulder DOMS. I'll take it. Okay, so yesterday: Tracking, check. Caloric deficit, check. NO CHOCOLATE, CHECK. Aerial, check. I even made myself an the little one a yummy veggie-ful lunch/dinner that counted towards the mini challenge (roasted spaghetti squash with garlic, mushrooms, chicken, and some heirloom marinara plus a tiny bit of parmesan) and will give me leftovers for today, which means one less thing to do. The baby continues to battle her cold and most likely the 9 month sleep regression, so home is not a relaxing haven, let's just say that. Work is hard due to this (I work a corporate job but from home, which makes getting things done difficult when things like this happen), but I muddled through somehow. Amazingly, the advanced lyra class was GREAT. I went into it assuming I'd crap out quickly, but then I got through everything, even the super hard combo not everyone was able to complete, AND I faced my terror of ankle hangs (despite my two perma-broken toes womp womp) and... SUCCESS WAS HAD! I am thoroughly sore and tired today, but hey, still, that was a pretty good day. I'm supposed to lift today and I think I'll swap the planned upper body workout for lower body instead and take it fairly easy. Ideally, I'll get to it during one of baby's naps. Pray for me that she naps. ETA: I also finished my first book of 2020! Does This Baby Make Me Look Straight? Confessions of a Gay Dad by Dan Bucatinsky. It had some very relatable moments and I'm glad my reading goal is halfway done for the month already! 8 2 Quote 🎪current challenge🎪 challenge archive: 19 | 18 | 17 | 16 | 15 | 14 | 13 | 12 | 11 | 10 | 9 | 8 | 7 | 6 | 5 | 4 | 3 | 2 | 1 instagram | goodreads "Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world." - Voltaire Link to comment
