Keeping With the Obsession Theme of My Sister-in-Law

So I currently am obsessed with yoga. I go three times a week to the gym and I want more.

I recently (ok not that recently) lost 40 pounds so I can now do yoga without falling on my ass. There is a ton of balance involved. It is a great feeling when all you have is going into each pose. My downward dog is getting better along with my warrior one and two. I want to be able to do crane pose. HA!Crane pose is the picture posted. It is harder than you would think. I will get it one day.

I am having trouble meditating at the end of the class. My mind wanders about what I'm making for dinner. What I should say to whichever kid is in trouble. What is next in my plan for getting back home, etc. So I push away the thoughts only to have them return. It is much easier to have a blank mind when you are actually doing the poses. Then you are concentrating on your body.

I do feel relaxed for the most part afterward. There is a class that I'm going to at the gym the involves some tai chi with the yoga. It's just the warm up but still cool to do the tai chi. Again a lot of balance work with it. One never realizes how out balance one is until you try dancer's pose or eagle pose. I wonder if sense of balance in my body has anything to do with my life being out of balance...?

P.S. Apparently cats like cream of chicken soup.


  1. That's it....I HAVE to get back to doing my stretch video!

    and....about the tell more!:o)

  2. Jaxx who needs to know everything asked to lick the top of the can of soup. So I let him. And Sabine came to see what was up and she wanted some too.

    And next week it's free to go to the gym with me...wanna come with?
