Well, a year ago today I was thinking about how I would ever make it to this day and wondered how I would do it through this blog. I failed. I thought I would go to yoga 3xa week, but I simply didn’t. In fact, the last time I went to yoga was 2 weeks ago!
I did go this morning, as I figured I needed to because of this blog. I also need to for my body, but I am starting to have a slight headache which seems to be synonmous with hot yoga with me right now – so that’s what reminded me actually to write this blog post.
Today, I woke up to hail and lightning and the power going out at 5am. I always find this quite obnoxious when I am getting up at the butt crack of dawn anyway to go to yoga – really? do I have to wake up 1 hour before the butt crack of dawn?
Bill parked behind my car (we have a one car garage), so I drove his car which was covered in ice – another annoyance that I had before I even got to yoga.
So, of course, I arrived when they were in the middle of the first set of beginning breathing. Not cool.
Also, there wasn’t really a space for me up front until we went to the floor postures, so I was in the “second” row. Again, annoyed because I’m near sighted and cannot see myself in the mirror unless I am in the first row – and as I have said before, not being in the first row reminds me of a paperweight my dad has, “If you’re not the lead dog, the view never changes.” In other words, I don’t like to look at other people’s asses.
I’d love to tell you that I am going to miss this blog. The bottom line is that I am feeling a lot of relief that this isn’t going to hang over my shoulders on a daily basis. It has for some time and on top of everything else, I simply don’t need it. Unfortunately this blog represents another failure of mine when it comes to weight loss. I used to believe that I could acomplish anything I set my mind to, but taking care of my physical body doesn’t seem to be one of those things.
Today’s pose is Head to Knee Pose with Stretching Pose or Janushirasana with Paschimotthanasana. I look better on 8/10/10 than I did in class today, that’s for sure.
I also decided to throw in the Spine Twisting Pose photos because, well, this is it folks – I didn’t even get another round of photos in. Pathetic all the way around. I do wonder if I would have done a better job at this if I was being paid. Maybe I should sign up for the Biggest Loser and then I would be motivated.
I do appreciate those that have been loyal readers and the ones that have encouraged me throughout the year. Looking back a year ago, I was really excited for today too because I thought I would have this banging body and be excited about life. Not the case, my friends.
I do hope you have a Happy New Year and if the mood so strikes me, I will continue to write on this blog when I have attended class. Who knows – maybe some day I will have a banging body to “show off” on here.
