30 Day Challenge Day 14: Replace One Dance with Another

Thoughts: Ok...so I'm more of a freestyle dancing kind of a girl.  Alone.  I don't think even my husband has seen me.  Only my daughter because I'm pretty sure that she's going to be a ballerina.  I'm not entirely sure how it's possible for a 2.5 year old to go on pointe so much.  But anyways...I decided to do Teisha's yoga sequence first.  WOW.  I'm definitely going to incorporate more of the stretches into my daily routine because my legs and hip flexors get so stiff at times.  I love yoga...so very much.  Anyways...since I decided to not to the dance routine (sorry) I decided to do something low keyish. I did a lot of yoga balancing sequences to work my core and my legs and then went onto some ballet leg lifts.  I like to work on my legs whenever I get the chance because they burn so much more calories than the other muscle groups in your body.  I ended up going through 3 rounds of 10 on each leg with three different leg lifts.  Front, side, and back.  180 in total.  Except I added in 30 more on both legs on the side leg lift.  I thought my legs were going to either fall off or burn up into little crisps.  So...240.  Gah.  I can hardly move. Food:  The bane of my existence.  Just kidding.  I work out so I can eat.  If I had the time I would workout as much as Michael Phelps just so I could eat whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted.  So while I try to find a job that gives me that I have to moderate.  Boo.  Thankfully I live in the US, not somewhere like France or Italy where the best food in the world is just sitting there on the corners staring at you. Progress:  Ugh...it was a rough day for me.  I felt like I was trying to get along with my worst enemy today.  I'd look at myself in the mirror and just curl my lip in disdain.  And then I'd think to myself-the heck?  Why on earth do I treat myself like this?  I would never look at another human being that way and here I'm doing it to myself.  Its a problem.  One that I'm trying desperately to fix.
