My Soul is Happy

Today I got up and put on my workout clothes.

Then I had breakfast and drank a glass of water.

Then I tweeted "I will go to the gym today... I WILL go to the gym today. I WILL GO TO THE GYM TODAY!!!"

Then I went to the gym!

It felt really good. Even though the arch of my right foot was hurting halfway through, and even though someone had set the TV at the gym to Maury ("the lie detector revealed that you are NOT the father!" ... seriously? I don't care!) I felt GOOD and I felt like, if I could go to the gym today, I could go everyday... twice a day, three times even! Ok, not really, but it was good and gave me confidence.

Then I went home and had lunch and did some blog reading.

Then, even though I already worked out once today, I went to a yoga class. I got a Groupon for a month of yoga at CorePower Yoga and finally decided to put it to use.

Then I was going to be late for the class so I almost didn't go.

But then I did go and it was SO good.

I had to take child's pose once to re-align my breath and I had bunches of trouble with tree pose (and I won't even mention crow pose! Definitely something to aspire to.) but it was GOOD stuff.

And now, my soul is happy.

This is my soul -------------> 8^) (Apparently my soul wears sunglasses...)

If only all my days off from work could be like this.

Do any of you practice yoga? Have you ever tried it? Do you want to join me? :-)

Background: I have been to yoga classes before but have never really made the effort to make it part of my everyday life. The thing is though, I have always really enjoyed yoga when I had taken classes. I hope this will be the start of a beautiful, life-long friendship with yoga.

I have not ever done yoga but I am considering it since my sister really wants to start. I have done some Pilates dvds that I like.

I checked out those poses and the crow pose is insane! Now that is some goal to aspire to but I am sure in time you will get there. It would be so cool to be able to do that.

Good luck with your yoga.
