Week 13

So, I have been lax about inputting the data over the last almost 4 weeks (week 17 starts tomorrow); I have continued to record the data though. I will continue with weekly entries instead of daily. I also have slacked on the wearing of the pedometer. I will recommence the pedometer when I return from vacation mid January.

Week 12, Day 2

10:00 am — (no pedometer, Mateo wanted to borrow it and only walked 2380 steps in the morning, not enough for a young child, too much stroller time)

11:15 am — Muller barre, not a ballet barre, but a modern barre, based on the Muller technique created by Jennifer Muller of Jennifer Muller / The Works modern dance company. (I studied with the company and was on scholarship there in what feels like a completely different life). It felt wonderful! I mean better than wonderful, fantastic! My back didn’t even flare up. That’s why I had left dance for a few years; I have a herniated disc that pushes on both the left and right nerve roots and caused excruciatingly, debilitating pain for a couple of years, but no pain this time. I guess by having a child, taking the time off from dance, then starting to dance bit by bit with Mateo and changing the classes as he got older allowed my body to adjust and myself to get back to a bit of dance. Of course part of the motivation is the little one is my belly, I’m sure he/she enjoys all the movement. 

I also did pushups, rows, an inversion, stretching and a little relaxation.

Spent the rest of the day cooking, and prepping to cook with dancing with Mateo in between.
