From show choir to SYTYCD. So very proud of my friend. Can’t wait to see her make it big!
Made around the end of April/ beginning of May for Tina Connolly’s Old Dead Futures, an upcoming short story for Tor.com. Elements of this piece (the story, not the illustration) reminded me of Looper in that there-are-decisions-you-can-make-as-a-young-man-seeing-your-future-that-you-can’t-make-from-the-perspective-of-that-future kind-of way. And I love it when seemingly helpless protagonists manage to save themselves. Go read it when it comes out for Tor.com’s 5th birthday. Many thanks to Irene for always sending me the best SF!
Yep. I know. I didn’t do shit these last two days. Usually I’m like “No, No, NO, you don’t need a rest day unless you really NEED one…like if you’re in pain or something, but if you’re a little sore and you can push through…just push through.” Well boys and girls…mostly girls….I’ve done fucked up.
I don’t know what type of stimulant slipped into my system on Friday, but I was on some other shit. I ran for a few miles in the morning, which you’re probably like…”Oh, that’s not that bad..” But I live in Tallahassee, meaning HILLS EVERYWHERE. Then I came home and did Level 3 of 30 day shred, and I didn’t just do it normally. I was on total beast mode. I kept up with Natalie the whole way…at one point I even PAUSED the video to do some extra leg lifts because I wasn’t feeling the burn. Crazy I know. AND TO TOP IT ALL OFF, I ended up going dancing that same night. So I went out in 5 inch heels and continued to drop it like it’s hot for about 6 hours. And I ended up dancing on a stage, so I didn’t want to look like I couldn’t keep up, so I stayed at the club WAYYYY longer than anyone in 5 inch heels should have stayed.
Yea folks, I ended up doing the most.
Needless to say, I woke up the next morning and my legs felt like I spent the night in a high energy Beyonce music video, instead of the club. Like, I had to roll out of bed and hobble to the kitchen because I couldn’t walk normally. Bad…real bad. And to top it off I hadn’t gotten a good nights sleep in like 4 days…sooooo….I needed to take a rest day. Actually rest weekend. All I did was sleep and clean my apartment, and then I went to work….
I feel like I fell of the bandwagon for a little bit….I also calorie cycle, so I used this weekend as a high calorie weekend. So I was eating more than usual. Eh, whatever.
TODAY THOUGH…TODAY IS A NEW DAY. Meaning, I’m getting right back into it. I literally only have 5 days left of the shred, and I’ve only taken about a total of 3 rest days so far. So, hopefully, today when I do some squats, my legs will be kind enough to let me get back up. Woo!
Happy Monday and Happy Training!
It’s to handle a cheating boyfriend.
