365 ONE: day 47…I am not a Pavlov Dog…

Day 47: February 24th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking Down 17 Flights and Back Up 17 Flights at Office

Dance of the Day was = “Don’t Know How To Act” by Flo Rida/Ynug Joc

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Laptop Tune”

Anything to Note =

Another show tonight, another show weekend – translated as….get all my 365 criteria done asap before I get to the theatre since I won’t be home before 1am!!

Sooooo…Pavlov’s dogs learned, through repetition, to not make the same mistakes over and over. They learned, through repetition, and suffering, that eventually what they were doing was harmful to them and not the best option, and so they adapted….well, I can’t say so much for myself!

I decided, again, to walk down the 17 flights at the office to the lobby and then immediately back up to the 17th floor as my cardio at the office. I have done this before and it was HELL!! In fact, I have done this twice and both times were HELL! So why oh why would I ever do it again??????????? You tell me!

I just thought it was raining out and I needed to do cardio, and since it is my show tonight, then walking would have been what I do to get it in, but then it was raining out, so what could I do instead?? “I guess I will walk down 17 flights and back up 17 flights”……………..UGH!!! Why Am I So Stupid!!??!!

So, how was the walk up and down….you guessed it…HELL!!

AND, AND…I was wearing boots today so that was a super smart decision! AND, AND, AND…I wore a million layers of sweaters so was dying of heat! My heart was about to pop out of my chest! It was beating so hard in my head and I was panting like a friggin’ dog, but no no no, not like one of Pavlov’s dogs!!! Pavlov’s dogs are sitting by the pool with a margarita in hand chilling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s not so bad walking DOWN 17 flights, but just a few flights up and it hits you like a tonne of bricks, and I was walking slowly!!!!!! Sooooo, what the eff is it about stairs?? I can’t be THAT out of shape? Can I? Can I really?


And you know what’s worse….you KNOW at some point, in my however many days left in this 365 challenge, I am going to walk up and down 17 flights again and complain about it. YUP! Oh, I just remembered, our office is moving at the end of next month to the 18th floor – GREAT!! So it will be 18 flights down and 18 flights up soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
