Anything to Note =

Now it seems that whenever I put on a techno song that is not that well-known or not my favourite or not a hit, my dance becomes an aerobic workout! I just can’t dance normally to them…I try! I try to slow it down and “dance” to it but it takes over! I am ruled by the beat haha!

It is the kind of music that I play at the gym (when I go to the gym) so I do associate it with lots of bouncing and hardcore movement…but I think it also becomes aerobic from my guilt of always walking as my cardio, but in busy times it seems it’s all I can do right now.

Walk it off!


Dance it off!

Anything to Note =

“NYC was made for walking, and that’s just what I’ll do. One of these days, these boots are gonna walk all over you!”

I had a pretty important reading at The Players Club tonight so had to be dressed smartly – which meant I could not turn up in my trainers! So, boots it was! Me and my boots! I recommend of course trainers to walk around NYC or anywhere really and not boots, but surprisingly these black boots I have are pretty comfy…they just slow me down! I am used to speedwalking my way through and doing that in boots makes you feel ridiculous and I am sure look ridiculous – hunched forward as your upper body tries to lead you faster than the boots will take you!

I had to walk as my cardio since it was such a long day, so walked from work to my rehearsal down at The Players Club and a few places here and there, but it just doesn’t feel like real cardio in boots. It feels like I am in slow-mo or something!

So of course when I got home I was a little dissatisfied – hence my dance of the day song turned into a crazo aerobic hardcore workout! The song I picked is a rendition that is half the original, so slow, and the other half jazzed with a techno beat, so…that’s what I did…went aerobic crazy on the techno beat part! And on the slower part, I tried to move as much with my body as I could….like a snake….a modern dance snake!….on crack!

365 ONE: day 20…reached the twenties!

Day 20: January 28th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Loom Movement Training/Squats

Dance of the Day was = “Numa Numa” by Ozone

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Elevator Shock”

Anything to Note =

I did a bunch of stretches and fitness criteria in rehearsal, whenever there’s a break, I would like drop to the ground and do twenty!! HAHA! Not quite, but I would definitely take advantage of the break to do something. I find that I have to spread it out a bit otherwise doing it all at once is a friggin’ nightmare!

My stomach was so bloated today so felt a little restricted in my 365 and also the movement I had to do today in rehearsal. UGH. I actually was let out of rehearsal a little early so decided to cram in my video straight away. I walked to the elevator and turned on my ipod and went with it. I decided to scream at the end, and it was so funny as when I got out at the bottom floor, there was a woman at the front and as the doors opened she had a look of concern on – like something had happened! Oooooops!! I ran out of there! It is really freeing though to turn on the camera and just go!

I find it funny that my dance of the day turns into some aerobic workout! I feel like I am in the 80’s – I need a dance of the day outfit. I need leg warmers 🙂
