Observing a box has never been this much fun
Pretzel Time

Yoga is quite a challenge for me. I have the wrist issue which makes putting most, or at best 25% of, my weight on it a hurtful experience. I have the vertigo issue that makes balance an adventure. I have a crunchy knee that causes me distress when I put pressure on it while bent. I'm currently mending a broken toe. My ghetto booty is so firm that it means laying on my back on a hard surface causes stress on my lower back if my legs aren't bent. And then there's the middle age and out of shape thing that I'd rather not even mention.

And yet, I really want to see how much yoga can help me overcome all of these issues. It may be a pipe dream, but I'd really like to have more flexibility and balance and core strength.

This morning my muscles feel like they were woken up from a deep sleep.

When I tried doing yoga-typed exercises, I found it really helpful to get into a routine of stretching out every morning as a post-shower wake up routine. It may not have done anything for the yoga stuff, but it helped me feel a bit better.

You know the saying, "no pain, no gain"? Mine is "no pain, no pain"!

But seriously, grats on making the effort to doing all of this. It's definately worth the effort in the end. I wish I could find the motivation.

"no pain, no pain"!

I love that!!

As for the motivation, mine came in the form of peer pressure. Yeah, lame...but it's working. I am unabashedly sponging off of the determination of others.

i never got "good" at yoga. i was a klutz and often slipped out of a pose, and i was too tall for my mat. i spent half of the class scared that i'd let out a fart. but i absolutely love(d) how i felt afterward. totally worth every awkward moment.

ps: that icon is messing with my eyes!

I think I heard at least 2 people rip 'em last night. No one flinched. But yeah, I worry too.

Sorry about the icon, but I wanted something twisty and couldn't find a pretzel that felt right *grin*
