Yo-yo-yo-yo Yoga…

I have been kind of out of balance lately – the sort of “out of balance” that comes from finding something new and exciting and getting so focused on the possibilities it that it’s hard to think about anything else. ¬†And while the possibilities are still there, it’s time to take a step back and re-balance the rest of my life, integrating the “new and exciting” part into the rest of my everyday life.

This week’s reading for my schoolwork (I am pursuing a degree in Health and Wellness) included a chapter on yoga, which is the topic of my final paper. After doing the reading, it occurred to me that I had been “going to go” to the yoga class at the gym for like three months. So what better time to get some real-world experience for my paper, and bring some balance to my life in the process? I’m a little nervous – it’s something new for me, and I’m not sure what to expect – but going and getting the experience will be better for me than sitting on the couch wondering “should I have gone?”

No matter when I go, there will always be an “I’ve never done this before” class. Why not get it over with sooner, rather than later?

Not a lot on the “stuff worth blogging about” front today, mainly because I was up way too late last night finishing up my homework (Procrastinator Extraordinaire, that’s me!), and was yet again busy putting out fires at work today. On the plus side, the overtime will look nice in my next paycheck.

Tonight I tried to stave off the stress eating with stress window shopping, with only mild success. One thing I found that I absolutely love was a shirt with this on it:

Oh yeah. Can’t wait for this one to get here!

Jam Packed Day

Yesterday I took it easy, doing laundry and housework and vegging with the dogs. As if to make up for it, today has been crazy-busy with no end in sight.

I drink Diet Coke at work (yeah, I know, but I’m hooked on the caffeine and I don’t do coffee), but today it was 1:30 in the afternoon before I even had time to stop long enough to get one. I’m glad I brought my big water bottle to work so I had SOMETHING to drink all morning. By the time I was ready to go home, I was only partway through my second 20 oz bottle.

I have TEAM tonight, and it should be another night of strength training. I don’t know if they’re going to go “as easy on us as last week… We shall see!

When I get home, I get to pay for my lazy day yesterday by finishing all the homework that’s due tonight. That includes a 2-3 page paper that I hopefully know the topic well enough to be able to breeze through!
