Whenever I see a wrap on my dash I tell myself I really need to make one soon.. but somehow I never do
- half of me: screw it i'm gonna eat pizza and ice cream and cookies because i am beautiful and special no matter what my body looks like
- other half of me: omg how could you poison your body with those chemicals PUT THE OREO DOWN HONEY THINK OF YOUR HEALTH
I miss dance so much. When I was 4, my mom started me in ballet classes. I continued until I was 12, when I quit partially to focus on softball and theatre, but mostly because I had grown tired of the verbal abuse my ballet instructor had reamed me with since the age of 8. She had been telling me how fat my thighs were since 3rd grade.
I know now, though, that I was a decent enough dancer. I won the part of Clara in the Nutcracker, after being Mouse Queen the previous year and being given one of very few scholarships to the summer dance camp. I even won an award from one of the instructors (one member of each class received an award from an instructor).
From age 11-13 I took tap lessons. It was fun, but I felt like I didn’t get what I did from ballet. I continued to participate in musical theatre until I graduated high school, so I had the opportunity to occasionally dance.
Now I crave ballet. I can’t watch a performance without my feet aching to move. Once I get my car (hopefully next weekend) and start getting a steady paycheck, I really want to start taking ballet classes again. I think it’ll help me get back in touch with my body and really help/ motivate me to get even more into shape.
Trying to remember this every time I want to stop doing Insanity.
