Day 118 – Dazed and Confused

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

Okay, “Dazed and Confused” might be a bit of an exaggeration because it’s a movie title so when I wanted to say, “dazed” I just added the “confused” part.

I was totally in a daze today. There were 17 people in the class and as far as I’m concerned there could have been just 2 besides me – the instructor and the guy next to me.

My eyes must have closed a billion times too. I got a decent amount of sleep last night so not sure where the daze was coming from. I like when that happens in class though as time flies by and the next thing I know we’re on the floor doing floor poses.

Today’s pose is the Full Locust Pose or Poorna-Salabhasana or airplane pose. I felt limited in all my poses today because I’ve taken too long of a break so I’m not as stretched out as I normally am. It did feel so good to stretch out though. I loved it. My feet especially. When I don’t do yoga my feet really suffer. They become stiff and are sore in the morning. I also have noticed that my body craves the half moon series when I’m not doing yoga as well as a back bend.

Had full intentions of going to class on Monday and Tuesday and didn’t make it. Then I watched the Biggest Loser on TV last night and so told my fatass to get up this morning.

I’m going out of town for the rest of the week so best case scenario I’ll be back at it on Monday.


Day 89 – $%*&ing Coughing

For the Fourth of July, Bill, the cats and I headed down to my parents’ lake house with the rest of my family.  I decided to take a few days off  before the 4-day weekend – so all in all, I took a week off which I was really excited about – and was trying my darnest not to go to a computer.  However, I guess when you take a break, your body sometimes shuts down and lo and behold, I was sick the whole time.

Then we returned on Monday evening and I was still sick for the rest of the week.  I could have gone on Saturday and Sunday, if I am to be quite honest, but I have this obnoxious cough and didn’t want to go.

So I went today.

And it was wonderful.  I know I have said this before but the weird thing about my body and yoga is that if I take a long time off then I am more flexible and my body just feels better.  Now how does that work?  Well, I take that back a little bit.  My body feels better when I am in class, but during the day, I still wished that I would have done Yoga that morning.  And that’s what I have got to keep reminding myself.  I want to feel that day in and day out.  I do feel better during the day when I go to yoga.

I went to bed at midnight last night, coughed until about 2am and then up for yoga at 6am!  BLAST.  No doubt I will be tired tonight, so hopefully I will poop in bed after watching a few things that I have DVRed that I would like to see.

Today’s pose is Poorna-Salabhasana or Full Locust Post.  Not much to this one, although I feel like I am a little kid on the ground pretending to take-off when we do this pose.  The instructor today was Lauren and she mentioned that the goal on this one is to get your thighs off the ground – I felt like I had an ephipany when she said that – didn’t know that . Namaste.
