Yes, its been a while since posted anything really. With great thought and soul searching, my journey continues as an adult skater. Though the road is rough and long, I think I still have a little fuel left in me to keep going.

Had my first lesson in 3 months and I must say - in all sincerity, I was very nervous, had butterflies in stomach and sweaty hands maybe because I did not know what to expect or if I even had it in me. Coach skated with me around the rink and worked on some dance steps and edges to get the ice under me.
We spoke briefly about my goals this skating season, and told her that I really would like to compete at Adult Nationals in Vegas ISI - that is, and would like test my bronze free skate in August. Well, she was delighted 1. that I am back skating 2. that I have solid goal to work on.
Worked on some creative edges and dance steps, some cross overs with nice edge presentation!! She wanted to see my spins (sit spin) of course, and bammm - and really nice sit spin, low and several revolutions...woot, woot!! "let me see your jumps"?
waltz/loop = ok, could be better- hold the edge longer the jump the loop
Sal/toe = very nice
loop = needs work
Flip = clean (rotated) just have to work on check out
Waltz/fallingleaf = I've done them before but not in combination
Next week we will work on the lutz jump, since coach saw my flip - its time to move onto the Lutz (yes!!!) Well considering my first day back didn't do so bad - it will get better with more practice and patience.
