That was a great vacation.
I woke up this morning and I realized that I don’t know what to do with myself. I remembered that’s how I felt before I started blogging, I felt a little aimless and needed to fill the void (aka shopping).
I liked the structure of this “work”. In the beginning it kept me from accumulating things.
Why shop when you can stalk your pets in hopes they will do something cute for your blog?
I’d like to find a little more balance but hey, if I feel like posting, why not?
Of course, I must keep the clamoring hoards at bay.
Tabby and I can’t walk right now because it’s FREEZING. Really. Freezing. And she’s got a hairless dog so walking around the reservoir is out.
I’m a little worried about my chickens but they seem to not mind the cold. Nonetheless, I’m taking extra precautions with them. And with the dog.
Back to that balance thing, I need to take better care of myself. Had it not been for the daily three mile dog walks and teaching pole, I don’t think I would have gotten any exercise. Although they say that cleaning your house burns calories so LUCKY ME, Pussy Galore (AKA That Fucking Cat) is keeping me very busy.
But now that I have more time, I’d like to spend more time in the studio and (through gritted teeth) do more yoga.
Not because I’m searching for inner peace or anything, but as class made painfully clear last night, everything I do in there would be so much easier if I was more flexible. Even just a little more.
There was a former ballerina in class with me and I couldn’t stop envying everything she was able to do because she had her splits.
So I signed up for a free 15 day trial with YogaGlo, an on-line yoga service.
I’m going to avoid doing what I would normally do, i.e. announce to the world that I’m taking up yoga, buy $500 of Lululemon gear and purchase a $120/month gym membership only to decide I hate it and give up.
I’m going to do 30 minutes a day, in my new room, for 15 days and see how I like it. Then I might consider the $18/month subscription, but only then.
And I won’t sign up for a whole year because I’ll save a buck or two a month. I’ll take it nice and slow and cancel if I don’t use it. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
30 minutes seems reasonable and if I don’t have to spend any time getting to class, I’m more likely to do it. We’ll see.
Time to cut the crap.
Okay. Time to do that yoga. The cat’s sleeping so this is my big chance!
