Day 3 – made it!!

I am sitting here, trying to finish checking my emails, responding, making sure that the various marketing flyers for upcoming workshops have been sent out, yet I need to also complete the text for an 8 week program I hope to set up with a local Pilates studio – Remedy Pilates and Massage, need to try and complete the layout and text for post cards that can be handed out and sent out to businesses and individuals, and yet, an hour past my normal blogging time, I have yet to delve into those other tasks.

The dreaded third day is almost complete. Where the second day will test you through how busy your day becomes, the third day challenges you through the social world around you. You’ll find that now that your body is clean, your heart and your mind become clear and that the loving world around you feels as if they want to fight with you. Whether it is my son discovering that his voice has train like hisses that can go as high as the sky, and while Mariah Carey might carry such a high tone as music to the ear, I doubt my son will be standing in line in American Idol $48, or maybe a family member that pushes that right button.

Well, it was a productive day, lots of talking again, dissecting the puzzle which is the human body, as each of us is different and each of us has a unique structure and thus unique pain and to relieve the tension requires a Sherlock Holmes type insight based on fact and knowledge.

But here I am complaining about my day when I should be sharing the world of Shoulder and Arms in the P90X program. I realize I need heavier weights, or a more challenging band, as it was not the most challenging experience. challenging enough for the body to stay involved, but it was only the Ab Ripper that made me realize I could not complete the sets. Not sure if I want to buy weights though, and honestly, working with the band is not that much fun, it is slightly cumbersome, the grips tend to turn around. They are easy to store and when you have a 15 month old boy you don’t want something he can drop on his baby toes.

We’ll see what I do. I’ll keep you posted.

I’ll leave you with the recipe for two dishes tonight, the incredible dinner I had last night which I packed and took with me to the Teacher Training (where I was teaching the Intro to Anatomy posrtion), as well as this “to die” for dish which I wolfed down with some nori sheets, and the veggie wrap that came with. You must write this, keep this, make this, you’ll love yourself for it.
Your friends will love you if you share this.
The world will love you if you prepare and digest this.
