Ballet, Going Back 5 Years Later

Dancing with the feet is one thing, but dancing with the heart is another.

Last Thursday I started ballet again. I danced all throughout school and at 5 months pregnant I was pretty much forced to give it up. I’ve never missed anything so much in my life.  Five years later I’m back into it and I couldn’t feel any more amazing. I’ve also been working really hard at losing weight, so this is one of my rewards.  I was so giddy I made Steve snap a photo of me before class.

In class I recognized the terms pretty quickly and hopefully in a few months I’ll be back to my old self again. After class my poor toes were bright red and a couple days later the backs of my thighs felt like they got hit by a semi-truck, but my body will get over it and get used to it again.

Have you ever gone back to a hobby or skillset that you had before? Did it feel different?

I feel like it’s so much different for me now but 5 years doesn’t seem like a long time. It will take some practice, that’s for sure!

  1. So glad that it’s going well and you are back into it.. I’d love to get back into it someday..

    You are trying to lose weight? My goodness girl.. you’ll waste away!

  2. That’s awesome!

  3. I must say I am SOOO impressed. Everyone (especially moms) seem to give up so many “loves” over the years when life gets too busy. Way to reclaim one of yours (while looking so great in the process!)

  4. You look SO cute 🙂 It’s nice to get back into things you love, isn’t it? Feels like a piece of you is put back in.
