Where to start…

I have been so busy lately since I have started teaching and setting choreography.  It’s only been two weeks but I am already feeling like I have been doing so much.   I am sad that I am missing out on performing jobs but I know that this will make me better.  I have also been dancing for myself a lot more lately and while my foot may not be liking it, I am!  I am loving taking class from Kristen Sudeikis.  If you are a dancer in NYC I completely recommend taking her as often as possible.  She mostly teaches at Peridance.  I have also been doing a lot of other really fun things.  Movies and walks/runs with J, Brunch with cousins!

Heather Graham? No, Kiera Knightley.  Whatever, she’s pretty.

The other day J and I went on the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway starting from the beginning and walking all the way at Battery Park! IMG_20120916_133110

Good old GW Bridge.

It was a good 15 miles and I almost cannot believe that we did it.  We almost stopped at 10 but decided we wanted to make it all the way to Battery Park.

And that we did.

I think we look good for having just walked 15 miles.  Other than that just been a dancing fool.  My mom sent me this pretty awesome cartoon that is actually perfect.

I don’t know what you mean, that doesn’t sound like me at all.

I am getting pretty excited for the fact that Fall is here and that means Halloween!

I cannot wait to decorate/dress up/celebrate my birthday!  And thankfully no one likes to take dance class on Halloween so I have the night off!  What should I be?! (I think I may be able to convince J to let me go trick-or-treating)

I have been having some pretty late nights and some really early mornings and I think I need some sleep but…… I am so excited for tomorrow.  Me and J are heading upstate (I can say that now that I live in the city) to visit the rents and go apple picking!  I will let you know how it goes.. Oh and soon I will be baking something pumpkin.  And probably something with apples. That’s all for now.

Byeee

Caught in the Rain.

Lately me and J have been running at night time which has really been keeping me awake so yesterday we went to the gym in the morning and did weights and then when he went to work I went for my run.
As I was nearing the end (thankfully) it started to rain. No not just rain. Pour, One of those rains when the sky is blue one second and then it just opens up on you the next. I wish I had a picture of myself running through the rain but I was too busy sprinting home! I guess I should have reveled in the beauty of it all, but I was to busy getting soaked. So I made it 5.3 miles before I had to stop.
I came home, had dinner, listened to some music and choreographed/danced around in my living room by myself for awhile while I baked some muffins!

My mom told me that I couldn’t even think about getting a really cool decorative muffin pan {like this} until I had used my regular muffin pan at least three times! And you know what I said? Challenge accepted. I have made cupcakes, Nutella brownies and now these apple cinnamon muffins. Technically that is three; however, I will count the cupcakes and the brownies as one because I made them on the same night. It’s okay because I already have something planned for my third use! You will just have to wait and see…

Also, I think I should tell everyone about the amazing smoothie I made the other day. If you know me at all then you know when I say the other day I usually mean yesterday. I am not very good at keeping track of days. Or time. So this smoothie… I make them all the time and just kind of go with the flow and and they usually taste pretty good (except for the time I put celery in. Definitely never again). This smoothie however was AHmazing. So let me tell you what was in it.

I made the Best Tasting Smoothie ever!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 Kiwi (no skin)
1/2-3/4 scoop GNC Chocolate Caramel Protein powder(it’s my fave and Im pretty sure this makes it! But any protein powder will do.)
3-4 icecubes
1/2 cup water(I guessed this, because I’m not really sure.)
2 handfuls of Spinach (as much as you want)
1/2 tbs flax seeds

Now see I have one of these GNC blenders that make the smoothie right in the cup so this is the order I put it in and then it gets turned upside down. But if in a regular blender I would throw it in in the opposite order so that the flax and the spinach get smooshed into the blades and get shredded and crushed. I am pretty sure that this tasted peanut buttery even though there was no peanut butter. It was yum.
OK Byeee.
