What I did yesterday

Posted by Partlycloudy on December 4, 2008, at 11:38:11

I went to a women's "Tend and Befriend" seminar at the local YWCA that was about holiday stress. After the sharing, we had a little run around the room doing Nia, which I had never tried before. I loved it, my body really loved being thrown around the room (it was me doing the throwing). Anyone else here try it?

I got a pedicure, now I have Christmas toesies.

I had my hair colored - each strand was gasping in thanks as it was coated.

Today, I'm slightly in shock that I did those things for myself yesterday.

Hi PC,

I've never done Nia because I tend to fall over when on land, which is why I do deep water aerobics I may sink, but I cannot fall.

Fantastic that you treated yourself to a feel good pedicure and hair color. I don't consider coloring my hair a treat, I consider it a necessity, but a pedicure is something that I have never had and next summer when my toes show again, darn it I'm going to have my first one.
Thanks for the inspiration.

Very very cool, ms. cloudy!

Okay, I'm genuinely curious about the throwing oneself around the room thing...

Hair.. oomph- I HATE people doing my hair. It's almost up there with the dentist. What's the MATTER with me?

Your toes must be sparkling gorgeous! I am enjoying a foot renaissance, as I have been slathering them up with eucerin cream before putting on my socks at night. Well, the only time I actually SEE my feet is when I am 1) showering, 2) changing socks. So, I get to enjoy them all to myself. Heck no! I won't share!

Keep up the good work partly-- maybe you'll feel like cooking one of these days...

hugs,
-Ll

I went to a Nia class this morning (yes, Sunday) but it was a decent hour, 10am. Three quarters of the way through I was huffing and puffing and barely able to throw my legs up in the air, much less do a kick, but I stick with it to the end. There was lots of dancing, lots of free form do-your-own stuff, lots of primal grunts (which felt fantastic), and I made it through the whole class.

The instructor was SO nice to me about how I move - she told me I had a natural grace. Of course I countered with "well, I had x number of years of ballet classes, and then I did this other dance stuff" and she said Nonsense - you either have a sense of movement, which you do, you are beautiful, or else this stuff is hard for you. You are beautiful.

Well, I just about started crying right there and then. No wonder my therapist has been after me to try this class...

Maybe it's a self image thing? I have a hard time with hair stylists who try to get me to do things to my hair to "improve" it. My hair is attached to me - it's what it is. It's far more valuable for me to find a stylist who understands how frustrating a bad hair day can be - and then helps me to get the best out of my hair that we can. Then I'm happy, and he or she gets a nice tip, and a repeat client.

Well, my feet are bare just about year round except for cold snaps, so it was overdue that I paid someone to TLC my feet. They are just too far away for me to do the job properly myself.

I tried making cheese yesterday but used the wrong milk :-( it was ultra pasteurized and wouldn't curdle no matter how much I coaxed it. I'll try again with organic milk and bottled water...

PC never heard of this type of movement you must be talented. And you seem to really be on an upswing mood wise and that is great. Wish had warmth in weather so cold here. Love Phillipa
