Random thoughts

Here are today's random thoughts:

I don't think I'm meant for yoga. There I was, trying to relax after doing several poses. We just supposed to lay flat, breathe, and relax. Then the instructor came around and said she would move some of our shoulders. Who did she come to first? That's right, me. I hate to think how I looked doing the poses; I can't even relax right!

Another sign that I'm not meant for yoga. As we were laying there relaxing, the instructor kept repeating, "your jaw is relaxing, your jaw is relaxing, your arms are relaxing, your arms are relaxing," etc. I couldn't help but think, "this room is freezing, this room is freezing."

School has started here. Even seeing the school bus makes me sad. On the first day of school when I arrived home from work, I saw a neighbor's kid return from his first day of kindergarten. Everyone in the house came out to meet his bus. A big day in their house. I want that.

My second thought after seeing this kid get off the bus? Why was the the bus dropping him off after 5pm?

I feel like I've finally gotten into a good place with my exercising. We lost power yesterday right after noon. But since it was so close to noon, when the clock started flashing at 12:00, it was only a few minutes off and so I only to push the minute button a few times to get it set again. And then I set my alarm clock so I was all set to wake up early for my morning gym class. But I forgot that the flashing clock assumed AM rather than PM, so while my alarm was set for 5:30 am, my clock said 5:30 pm and so it didn't go off and I ended up waking up 20 minutes late. I still jumped out of bed and made it to my class 15 minutes late. First I was so proud I still made it. Second I was actually glad that I felt odd in the morning because I'm getting used to working out and my body wants it now.

The reason I was able to motivate myself to get out of bed and go to the gym even though I knew I'd be late? Last night we went to the Cheesecake Factory. We had some yummy cheesecake. And there is still half of my slice left to eat today.


  1. I tried pilates for a while, but had the same problem. I couldn't relax. Well, that and I found myself becoming violent when our instructor would intone in that flat grating voice "navel to spine, navel to spine".

  2. Pilates/Yoga + me = disaster so you're not alone there!

    I'm trying to get into a good place with exercise lol, I've got my treadmill and I've been going on it every night but it's still taking some motivation to get on it!!


  3. I always have trouble clearing my mind for yoga, acupuncture, meditation.How do you stop those thoughts!?!

  4. Yeah, I'm not a yoga person either!

    Yay for your exercise routine and getting your body trained to want it!! Oh, and mmmm... Cheesecake Factory.

  5. Way to go with the excercise! I need to get motivated to get back into shape. I'm not meant for yoga either, the poses make me dizzy!

  6. I have never been able to get into yoga either! I'm always too afraid of falling and getting those ugly looks they give you when you disturb them!
    and i'm so addicted to the elliptical machine right now and so over Husband bugging me to run a marathon with him (seriously i think there is no good reason to run unless you're being chased by a dog)


  7. I actually like yoga..Am I weird for that? LOL
    I can't do some of the poses correctly, but that's alright.

    Good luck with working out!!! ICLW
