Slack? Not Me!

I've been "on vacation" for the last few days. What started as a reunion party for my college's science fiction club has become a full-on yearly summer party. Starting some time around the 4th of July and running full force until about the 12th, it's nothing but people, drinking, food, visitors, food, drinking, reminiscing, getting to tell the same old stories to new people... and hey, did I mention the food?

However, I've been pretty good with the food. Well, except for yesterday... I don't think I ate MUCH yesterday, but what I did eat was almost entirely chips. And salsa. But since I didn't eat the whole bag of chips, I think it was good. Well, not good, but not totally throwing myself down the stairs. When I'm chasing the last few tomatoes around the bottom of the salsa jar with a Popsicle stick, I might need some help.

And I've been working out... not at the gym, but I did walk a LOT, and did some running around in the park.

Despite that, my weight's up a bit. Probably all the salt.

Went to Yoga again today. Oh, I love it! My instructor was very impressed with me. Today's class structure was Abs, butt, and balance.

"Are you sure you're a novice?" she asked me after class. "You had your foot way up there during tree. And your balancing tiger? that was excellent. That's a really hard pose!"

Seriously, I love the gym, I've been enjoying my classes and the workouts... but if I had to pick why I'm staying at the gym, it's yoga class. I was sweating like crazy, but I feel soooooo good afterward.

I am a major, major fan of yoga, so I'm very glad to hear that you've found a good instructor!

The way I justify my own monthly dues to the Y is that I go to yoga twice a week. Classes at yoga studios generally cost about $12 each, so as long as I go to at least 6 classes a month, I'm getting my money's worth... and I always go to more than 6 classes a month.

I am waaay too self-conscious to ever do a yoga class, but I know a lot of people who love it. :)

Yoga scares me. LOL!

Good job with all the walking and I'm most impressed by seeing the positive..... you didn't do the best but you could have done much worse.

And you are apparently a rock star at yoga!
