middle of the hourglass

My choir director Dr Benson referred to this time in the semester as the middle of the hour glass. it feels as though the sand isn't moving at all. But it is! and there is definite progress!

This semester is almost my last, and it has been moving constantly. I have 17 units, which is nothing new, but  I don't have much time for socializing or relaxing. I spend extra time working out or practicing for my senior recital. I go to school, work out, practice go to another class, go to work, come home- do homework and be with my sweet husband. Matt really has taken on alot  most of the home responsibilities. What a keeper that man is!

My recital is coming up on April 14 and my hearing date is scheduled for march 19. There are so many projects to do and places to go, but I have to complete my intended goal of getting this degree. I know it will pay off in the end....but being in the middle of the hour glass isn't helping!

On our honeymoon matt and i drove down highway one. we saw a place to park and took advantage. There it was, a trail begging to be walked on. so we walked. and i was scared. and matt was not. so i held his hands as we climbed the rocks. we made it to this spot. This spot. right here. I should remember this walk more often. Trusting can be beautiful.

the effect of fitness

So the mile-a-day challenge lasted until february 1st. I didn't quit exercising, but school and work starting again makes it quite difficult to run. I started zumba classes and I'll be doing boot camp again this semester. Zumba is a blast! I have really missed dancing. I took dance class growing up and all through middle school and high school I was in musicals. I didn't realize how much I missed it until it came back into my life! Dancing may be the key to losing weight and getting healthy for me! I'm naively hopeful and keep thinking I'll find something to get back to a smaller size. Today I'm home sick from school and work and It's easy to dream about being active. The music is hilarious to me and makes me want mexican food. This is not the effect I had hoped for but it's better than when I go to yoga and I want indian food. Or is it?
