New Look

I’ve been experimenting with the look of the blog lately, and for now have settled on Blogger’s new dynamic views. I did love my old header image, but wound up not so fond of the colour. For some reason, any scheme I picked to go with it wound up looking kind of… barfy. And “barfy” is not the best colour for a blog!

I don’t like that the dynamic views are not as customizable as the usual blogger templates, but I love that they make it so much easier to scroll through lots of posts. The Flipcard view is particularly good for that. So do play around with it, and tell me what you think!

Enough is Enough: A Resolution

A confession: I have a lot, and I do mean a lot of dance and workout videos. I wager the number is around a hundred, though I would fear to admit to more. And yet I haven’t danced — at least regularly — in ages, and as much as I love the yoga or pilates videos too, I don’t do those with any kind of regularity either.

So here’s my goal, and I won’t spend too many words on it: to try and do every one once, at least two videos a week. I think to aim for more than two would be too ambitious, and even two a week (or one) would be an enormous improvement. And then, because there’s nothing like bragging for motivation, to use this blog to track my progress.

What I won’t do is be methodical: I won’t work extensively with one video unless I really feel like it, and I won’t pay too much attention to balancing things out. If I feel like lots of silly cardio, I’ll do that, and if I’m in a bellydance mood for a while, I’ll do that. And I’m allowed repeats. Let’s see how this goes!
