Everybody Wants You

“Everybody needs you, leads you, bleeds you.”

I have so much to tell you all but I am too tired to actually write about it.  I am going to give you my numbers for today and tell you all about my crazy Qaina chaos tomorrow.  Check back if the previous statement sounds like it might be interesting to you.

Today I choreographed a solo.  I accomplished a lot so I feel good about that.  I also led two rehearsals.  I did my workout too!!!  Tired but sadly not from any of these things!!  LOL.  Kidding!!

Now That We Found Love

“What are we going to do with it.  I like the way you wiggle.  You don’t jiggle once you jiggle.”

I love that Heavy D song.  So young to die.  The first thing that went through my head is wondering whether or not his death would have been preventable if he would have taken better care of himself.  Then I thought, “Did he take care of himself and I just think he didn’t because is called Heavy D??”  Could be.  I liked him and I love that song.

Today was a high work day.  3 hours total with lots of practicing for shows this weekend.  Tomorrow should be the same.  So tired.

Going to sleep now but not before I tell you about an upcoming gig I have at The Virginia Holocaust Museum on December 10.  I am sooooooo excited.  I danced there in January so there is another blog in here that lists all the reasons why I am excited.  The basic gist is that performing for the survivors of the Holocaust is an honor and I learned so much from meeting them.  They have a wonderful attitude towards life!!  I can’t wait to do it again!!!

Also, I want to look great for it so it can be one more reason for me to stick to my workouts!!!  Almost there!!

Wasting Away Again

“In Margaritaville.”

Yes, I am writing this after Margarita Power Hour!!  Woo hoo!!  My writing skills will be of equal or lesser value!!  Also, I am writing this after working out and three practice hours–one hour for every margarita I drank following classes.  Totally worth it!! 

I taught two classes and I had to do choreography so I am ahead of the game.  I actually didn’t get much work done over the weekend because I was not home.  I was traveling for things non-bellydance so I thought I had gotten myself behind in hours but I did a count (which I do about twice a month to see how I am doing anyway.)  I have 54 days left in the year and I have 52 hours left to reach my goal.  I am pretty close but the fact that I have a ton of work to do on my solo and so many rehearsals to do for the show coming up, I am not that worried about reaching that goal!!!

I have to be focused this week and then next week, I will see how far ahead I am.  Almost there!!!!

I Am Iron Man

“Now the time is here, for Iron Man to spread fear!!”

I hate iron pills.  They make me feel sick.  I have decided to stop taking them so I will feel like myself again.  Back to the doctor I go.

My health troubles were far less last year when I didn’t have a blog.  Do you think by starting this blog I stirred up some kind of obstacle karma so the universe can make my blog more interesting??  “During that time, she battled high blood pressure and anemia.”

Two things I did not battle before this blog!!!

I exercised, I practiced, I felt sick all day.  This is the story of a girl with the determination and perseverance to push past a pesky heart and vitamin deficiancy!!  Behind The Dancing!!

Jeepers Creepers

“Where did you get those eyes.”

I just erased the whole beginning paragraph because all I did was complain about my iron pills.  I decided that it did not make for good blog information so I erased it and here I am.  I will tell you that Anemia sucks when you are trying to workout and practice for hours a day though.

Anyway, I taught two classes on Monday that I did not yet write about.  Drilling and Choreography were on Halloween Monday.  I said everyone who wore a spider got their classes free and everyone did.  Some phoned it in but everyone wore a spider of some kind.

Also, I have continued my muscle-building workout and I have the aching muscles to prove it.  I still do my workout even though I complain about my lack of energy.  This body is not going to change itself just because I was diagnosed with Anemia.  It’s just another hurdle for me to whine about!!
