more yoga!

I had my second yoga class this morning. It was bright and early at 6:30 AM. When I left my house it was still dark, which felt somewhat gloomy, but I continued on my way with knots in my stomach filled with a slight anxiety of completely not knowing what I was doing... but doing it anyway.

It didn't take me as long as I expected to get there, so I sat in my car for a little while until others began showing up. I didn't want to be the first one in there... not yet anyway.

This was a small class of only 4 students. My last class had about 8 or 9, so there were more people to look to for what I was supposed to be doing when the instructor says to "find your warrior 1". At least I had learned some in that class so I didn't feel SO dumb in this one. And there was even more that I learned in this one. I learn something new each time, and I'm sure it will continue that way for a long time.

After class I felt like a beautiful, glowing beacon of light—ready to take on the world! And I wasn't very much later to work than I usually am. The glow lasted for the first few hours of the day, but unfortunately we're in the midst of a very hectic time of year and the energy at work is just so tense and fast paced compared to where I was at after class that my glowing, warm fuzzies were quickly squashed and dragged back to reality. At least I started with the fuzzies rather than without—I'm in a much better place now because of them.

I'd love to do this every day, but the 6:30 AM class only runs on Tues, Wed and Thurs. and that's really the only time I have to get there. For now I'll stick to Tues and Thursday mornings, giving my body time to rest on Wednesday—it needs it.

After my first class Monday night I felt great, loose and flowy. It wasn't until mid-day Tuesday that I started feeling sore muscles. Thankfully those were nowhere to be found this morning as I rolled out of bed.

As for my fruit before noon diet thing I've been struggeling the past few days. Today though I just haven't craved any type of food. Woo! I ate an apple when I got to work and when my co-workers began talking about Chinese Thursdays the thought of ordering with them popped up, but I ate a banana instead and that satisfied that urge.

It's now about 12:30 and I'm about ready to go eat my salad for lunch. Yum.
No chocolate cravings today. First day in about 5.
