i am on my way to austin in a few minutes. time to visit my pal weezy and spend some time with renee doin' crafty things and derby things! but before i go, i thought i'd share what is going on with y'all :)
last week my roller skates busted. the first pair i had purchased in august was quite a "beginner" pair of skates. now that practice is 3-4 times a week [as opposed to once a week...], they gave out. today, before austin, i am picking up my new skates. *excitement*!!! hopefully these babies, that are significantly better than my previous pair, help me get out out of my funk! the funk is in regards to my ability to improve...not my ability to have fun :) new skates plus new gym plan must equal success, right??
each day i do not have roller derby practice, i have been working out at the gym for 1.5 hours. daniel helped me figure out how many reps i need to be doing, and how much i should be lifting/pushing/pulling. i'm not very knowledgeable when it comes to work out equipment...i usually just hop on the treadmill! but hopefully all these new exercises help strengthen my legs and core [and tone my arms?]...sigh. dang the aging process! :)
all this working out will come in handy for my florida and dominican republic trips coming up this summer. and i am real psyched about my trip to miami at the end of the month! i'll be visiting my cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. AND taking my pin up style derby photos with rgbmonster and his lovely wife, SoMelificent - long time e-friends of mine :)
in the crafty world, i have been keeping busy updating the shop and taking some custom orders. it keeps me busy! i am not going to be doing any shows this summer as of right now...but i am already looking at some around the holidays!
okay, enough with the chatty cathy! what's up with y'all? any work out tips? skating tips?
[i totally had an organic choco milk after my work out today! thanks marci!]
