6 months

So the first five months of this year have gone by, and looking back on them I kind of feel like I haven’t accomplished as much as I wanted to, or probably should have. The good First dance recital! Completed Beginner Lyra and am in Intermediate (2 lessons) 6 lessons of silk with my new…

It is actually more than a week since I’ve last posted because I’m a lazy bum. I’m absolutely sucking at silks now, and my lyra classes are moving really slow so I’m a little bummed. I have found an aerial teacher to teach me private lessons so I might quit the school I’m currently at…

Lexa

I’ve finally caught up to the latest episode of The100. I love all the beautiful characters, especially clexa, and like many others are disappointed with the direction the show is heading. I used to watch The Vampire Diaries and that was a mess after season four as well. I’ve decided to name my training programme…

Off Days

I realized that I have created so many Categories for my posts, but never made one for Off Days. Or what I would call, fun/life days. But if I chose the latter, a lot of classes would fall into that category as well. Maybe some time soon, yeah? Sunday was an Off Day. A real one. Went…

Moving along

I was told my kicks were perfect in technique class yesterday. Talk about a miracle happening. I sucked at everything else anyway so it balances out. Finally settled the choreography for the recital, a.k.a. no lift, but I’m still happy to be a part of it and it looks like it’s going to turn out…

Why Do We Fall?

  Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of…

Hamster 02 (or the actual 01)

If you have read this, you would know that I started my Hamster series about a week plus back. And then, WISDOM TEETH EXTRACTION!!!! X.X Anyway, I’m back and even more determined to work hard after a ton of internet articles and thinking. Here is what I did today! Sorry if I sound a little high….

Hamster 01

Welcome to the third week of February. I’ve finally decided to stick to a program, one that has far enough goals for me to reach, and enough cool things to keep me interested. You can find it here: http://antranik.org/bodyweight-training/ I’ve been mucking around on my training a lot, and so I shall officially deem today as…

It’s been a while since this kind of posts. I’m doing a little restructuring of my training program (again…) Running the 50 Pullups progression and I’m really going to stick to that from now on, the link to the program is here (www.50pullups.com) if anyone is interested. I’m starting, actually have just done Day 1,…

Yucks

Going to keep this short because my body isn’t feeling well with my lack of sleep last night. Second Silk class with SY today, learnt a few new poses. Was sweating like mad throughout and still sore from I don’t know what. I think I need to cut down on my training volume and find…
