My booty is so sore from yoga yesterday. I wonder how the actual beginners are faring.
Things of the day:
- I woke up with a killer headache
- the vegan cafeteria opened today
- my headache refused to go away until I popped a couple ibuprofen
- I went to a beginner yoga class and the teacher decided to be like “screw beginner, let’s go crazy”
- I’ve gotten much better at baby crow
- I was going to go on a long run, but I got the allergy attack from hell after yoga so I decided against it
- did 4 miles on the elliptical instead
- now thinking about either playing some pool in the lobby or taking some Nyquil and knocking myself out
I have classes tomorrow at 8am LOLZ I’m scared
What a lovely morning :)
Here’s my morning thus far:
Woke up without an alarm around 8:30
Ate breakfast consisting of banana and odwalla bar
Read a chapter of my book
Fell asleep on the couch for like two hours
Woke up just in time to get dressed and go to a very relaxing yoga class
Had pleasant conversations with my fellow yogis
Came back to room and had lunch consisting of banana and odwalla bar
Here’s my plan for the rest of the day:
Find a way to get coffee for free and with minimal movement
Lay on the couch reading for a good 5 hours
Go run when it’s cooled off/when I feel like it
Possibly go see my friends band perform
It’s going to be a great relaxing day! I’m down to the last few days before classes start so I plan on fully enjoying them while I can :)
Man I just reread some of my blog posts from so long ago. Like two years ago. And its amazing to me how much I’ve changed.
I spent a lot of those posts talking about the food I’d eaten and how I felt awful for eating sweets or feeling like I was eating too much even when I was working out for hours every day and hardly ever taking rest days. And the craziest part is I thought I was just being healthy.
Now I can see that I wasn’t. Being obsessed with healthy and clean eating doesn’t actually make you any healthier, physically or mentally.
Even now, today, when I’m struggling with body issues just due to hormones, I am confident that I am in a better place than I was then. I’m healthier, mind body and soul.
While I do sometimes miss the naïveté of my high school years, I am so glad I am where I am today. I might not always be happier, but I am at least confident in myself and happy with myself.
