Day 3

Barre.

Sometimes I wonder what I was thinking. When we are only 10 minutes into the class and I already feel like every part of my legs are on fire, I wonder what I was thinking. I wonder if I really thought I could do this.......

It's only the third day. So, I will have a better answer to these questions in about a week.

But, I will tell you, I'm beyond proud that the teacher has only had to correct me once. ONCE. I know where to put my feet and kick my legs. I know how to square my hips and elongate my spine. I know how to stand like a dancer!

I know how to do things that I didn't know were second nature to me. It doesn't make it easy, but it sure helps with my confidence during the class.

Every part of my body is on fire. But, this might be the fire that finally changes me.

You gotta have faith, right? (SING THE SONG!) Cause you gotta......

Here I GO!

First off, I'm sorry. I made promises to myself about blogging it up...and I have been the worst blogger that ever has blogged.
I actually don't know if that is true. I don't read very many blogs.
But, the point is, I haven't kept my promise to myself. I've been slacking!

Granted, it's hard to come up with things to blog about. I still don't have a job. *hurl* I haven't had luck in the dating scene......I don't even know what the dating scene is..... *hurl*

But, I do have something to blog about today. So, *unhurl*!!! Wait. That's a horrible idea. No one should ever unhurl. Gross.

I took a barre fitness class today. I've always wanted to be a dancer and this might be as close as I get. And, PEOPLE, everyone on the planet should have respect for what dancers put their bodies through. They are strong for a reason!
It was hard. My whole body hurts. Day one is done. I can't feel my legs.
It was awesome.
It was everything.

I can't wait to continue.

A Touch of Poetry....

Yo! I was searching for something in random email folders and I found this poem I wrote on 5/3/10.

And since sharing is caring..............



Put Together
 
by Leah Wuergler


Made by powers from beyond the great sky
Skin wrapped around bone
Green eyes placed inside an open face
A face that waits and comes alive with reaction
retraction
passion
A stomach placed deep inside to jump around
and pull towards the need
The want
and pull down into the desire
This body was put together for you.
This body, heart, mind and soul was wrapped imperfectly
in fair, freckled skin.
Waiting to be unwrapped in love.
Rewrapped in passion.
Rewrapped in you.

March-y McMarcherson

Welcome to March!

I love this month like seagulls love to steal your lunch at the beach. I get so excited about the return of Spring, the greens getting brighter, giving up bread for Lent, the trees blooming (things that will try to kill me next month), and ST. PATRICK'S DAY! You know I love me some St. Patrick.

I've already started to wear my green....a bit of it. I may have told you this before, so skip ahead if you know this part....
I started a tradition a few years ago. Cause I love tradition. TRADITION. I start on the first and add a bit of green everyday until the 17th, then I start fading the green out until the end of the month. It makes me beyond happy to see the green grow.
It's the simple things, Peeps! That's all we need! A lot of little things that make you happy, well, they start to add up.....and then you are happy everyday like Miss Piggy on the Red Carpet. (She likes that, right? I mean, I'm guessing people taking pictures of her in fancy dresses is one of her favorite things.)

ALSO, tomorrow is Fat Tuesday. That's green AND PURPLE! This month was made for me. I should have been born in this month. But, no. I was born in April.....during the time when nature tries to kill me by making it nearly impossible to breathe. Not cool, nature, not cool.

This month, my little thing that makes me happy is all the green. What's yours?

Next month, my little thing that will make me happy is all the Easter chocolate. :D Cause....duh.

HAPPY THINGS, PEOPLE! They are all around!!!

Sorry I keep yelling at you and using exclamation points like a maniac. I'm going to go do something nifty to get rid of all this energy. I'm crazy today! WOOT!
