I feeeel good dun nanana-na


Hi, I feel like its been weeks, years, okay practically a millennia since I last posted two days ago.

So, how are you? What's new?

I decided on Monday that enough is enough and I am tired of being an out of shape slob. So, I went swing dancing on Tuesday night and possibly made a new friend(!). But more pressingly fell more in love with my Swing Teacher. Honestly, the man makes me laugh. ... ... ... and I'm back.

Today I went to Yoga. To embrace the new yoga me I wore MHC yoga sweats and a home-made tied dyed t-shirt. I am not going to lie to you, dear readers, I brought sexy back to yoga. It was a tough job, but someone had to do it.

I bought a new mat. It's been 4 hours since class, and I already hurt. However, it's amazing how quickly it all came back to me. When I first started yoga, I always really pushed myself to do everything that the teacher suggested. I was competing with everyone in the class to be better, more flexible, stronger, or have more endurance. But in many ways I wasn't pushing in the right direction, you know? I was pushing for my body to be something that it isn't.

As my practice has developed or perhaps as I have matured, I have let it be about me. What happens on my mat is my own. It's my practice. Now, I don't feel guilty if I sit postures out or if I modify it to suit my emotions for the day.

So today's a good day. Plus, I just talked to my bestest friend on the phone! And nothing cures a schlumpy attitude like girlish giggles and off key renditions of Tina Turner's Proud Mary.
