Two days off translates to cleaning, eye appointments, massage therapy, seeing friends and Mexican food. Most excited about that. Last week, the Goddess and I met for Pho (delicious). This Thursday we are finding guacamole, green chile and chips. Super excited! It's a cold day, semi-dreary, and comfort food sounds incredible.
I managed to go to a yoga class before the debauchery starts. Typically, I like this instructor for her awesome adjustments only. She has an assistant that also adjusts during the hour class. I love that the studio is heated and it feels like a community. If only the yoga, itself, was good. I have struggled in the past month to find classes that are challenging. The heat factor helps decrease my frustration and knowing that I like the teacher's adjustments motivated me to head downtown to attend the class. It starts with us sitting and listening to her talk for 9 minutes. I knew, then, that I would be leaving the class early. She took to long for the intro and I knew that the physical part would be lacking. It was. I was frustrated. Her music was terrible and she wasn't able to adjust people like normal. There was no assistant and everything about the class was crappy. Finally, I had enough and did a mini corpse pose before heading out. Ironically, the instructor happened to be right by me while I was attempting to leave unnoticed. She stopped by me to see if I was okay. I told her that I was fine just not feeling it today. I couldn't force myself to do stay any longer in the class.
Now I am considering joining a gym that offers spin. I think I will start running again and sign up for a fall half marathon. I am plateauing with yoga here. I have exhausted my free pass options around the city and need to choose which studio has the best options. I have not found any studio with a good playlist. I know that is not important to some people but it is important to me. I like a heated studio and most importantly, I do like power yoga that is challenging. I want my mind bent.
I am off to lunch with the ladies. I convinced Sara Jo to join us too. I am excited to see them and chat my birthday venture to New Orleans. It is right around the corner. Must make plans!
