Day 12. This was an intense workout today including 111 star jumps. I am the Star Jump Queen! Every day a few more. I’m so grateful my body can do them. It didn’t used to be able. But now it actually likes them. It can’t stop. Someone told me I should do more weight bearing exercises. I never understood what that truly meant until now. I feel my connection with the ground waking up. Getting stronger. Opening. Usually I spend so little time in deep connection with the floor. Supporting myself. Wholly. So now, when I jump and land on the floor, signals are sent to my brain and I feel different. More aligned. More cleansed. Like I’m being shaken awake. I’m a kid again. I’m buzzing. On the apparatus in the school hall. Jumping, leaping, zooming. I’m back. My belly’s getting smaller because my core is getting stronger. Brilliant.
An old teacher came to me in my dance today. She told me to use my breath more. And experiment with blowing out my mouth. I usually use my nose so it made me feel things in a different way. I will explore panting a bit more. Funny what can happen (or who you meet) when you’re deep in a body workout.
Time to bake cookies. It is cheat day afterall. ❤️🍪❤️🍪❤️
