February was hit or miss.


Keep up with PT exercises. Ugh. I did worse this month than last month.

Weekly yoga. I made it to yoga once. Oy. Felt really great though.

104 strength workouts. I did 6 last month. I did join Class Pass toward the end of the month, which I’ve been wanting to do for awhile, so hopefully I’ll get in more strength workouts. I’m having fun so far. This month I tried CrossTown Fitness, Shred 415 (first time) and Mazi Dance Fitness (first time). You can try Class Pass yourself for one week of unlimited classes for $10. (Both of those are affiliate links.) And if any of you fellow Class Passers want to make a date to check out a class together, let me know! Especially if it’s the Zen Vin Yin Vino at Zen Yoga Garage.

1,000 miles. I did 9 self-powered miles. All running. I’m so not motivated by this weather.

Art & Culture:

Perform again. Finished my session at Studio L’maour. Taught another workshop at Room to Move. Took an American Can Can Workshop at Vaudezilla (at which I met Nina). All in all, super fun month!

Read 18 books. I finished Inherent Vice and started and finished Whistling Past the Graveyard. I started The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. 

Attend at least one art-related thing per month. Big Sexy Show (burlesque), Chicago Symphony OrchestraEndgame (play), and Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band.



Stop talking myself out of doing things. I was supposed to go to a cocktail hour with my husband and a friend, and both of them bailed on me, but I went anyway. I ended up meeting one of the creators of the Sex for Smart People podcast, which was pretty neat! I also attended the Be Your Own Valentine event at Rooted Self Expressions. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but we did a neat guided art exercise, and I tried accupuncture for the first time.

Volunteer. Had a couple meetings for the BVA project I’m working on. It’s moving along.

Decrease our debt. Workin’ on it.

How was your February? Have you been running outside in this weather, or inside, or not at all? Are you doing the Shamrock Shuffle? (I’m registered.) Do you use Class Pass?
