It’s the little things


This morning, a gentleman on the subway asked me if I was a ballet dancer. Bar method working? I told him yes, but only in my head.

Kyla Ross?

So I have had two people in the last few days telling me how much I resemble this Olympic athlete.  First off, flattered!  She is 15 and has a killer body, because she is 15 and also a crazy gymnast.  I wound up googling her today and was struck by the resemblance.  She is pretty darn cute.  And I can look at this balance beam picture and pretend it is me in my patriotic leotard with my hair all slicked back and whatnot.









Look, here I am wearing a green leotard and striking a fancy pose.  Ha ha you guys it’s not me it’s my twin Kyla!

I think the bar method is maybe working

I think the bar method is making my arms nice. Jaime snapped a pic at the pool when I wasn’t looking.


Bar was BRUTAL this morning. Everything is harder with a hangover :\

Quest for Ballerina Body, Interrupted

Got up at 5:15am and thought, “wow I’m really not in the mood for Bar Method.” Despite this I got up, made the coffee, emptied the dishwasher, checked the weather, checked the email, thought about what I was going to wear to work. I wound up having to rush because all that thinking really slows me down. I hurried to Bar and saw everyone milling around the entrance. At first I thought “look we are having a summit in the parking lot!”. As I approached I saw their faces, frustrated tired faces. There was no key to the studio. The owner is a half hour away. Cue the sad trombones.

At least I have time to blow dry my hair. But! What about all those stupid cake pops I schnarfled this weekend? The quest for the ballerina body continues…

And now I can make the 7:02. Yay?

Bar Method, why can’t I stop obsessing?

I just bought the $175 unlimited monthly for The Bar Method. I have been taking it for a few weeks and so far I am noticing small changes. My arms and legs seem more toned, and overall I feel a bit taller? Anyway, with all of these “border” body parts getting smaller, I feel like my pot belly is even pot bellier? How is this possible/this isn’t fair/why can’t I have anything nice? Gah. I would love to embrace my pot belly, but it just seems so unjust. I have 24 classes on the schedule for this month. I’m curious to see what changes will come. Will I be a bar star? Will people stop me on the street and ask, “well however did you get that amazingly flat stomach”? I will check in after class 24 and give my full assessment.
