I got myself to the class and got myself through it.
I was so worried they’d do a balancing pose I couldn’t handle or some other move that would make me look the fool, but I did pretty good with no surprises. In fact, I was more flexible and balanced than a majority of the class, which made me feel great. Okay, so yoga’s non-competitive, but my first time back in a class and I was happy to see I wasn’t the worst person there.
Ate too much yesterday, but hubby and I parked in the farthest spot from our building (about 3/4 mile away) and took two walks last night, so I think things balanced out. And I finally had a salad with dinner, a habit I’ve regretted getting out of a couple of months ago.
Tonight as soon as my work’s done I’ll do some yoga in the basement, and then I’m hitting another class tomorrow morning. Sunday morning if I get up early enough and am brave enough, I may attend the free beginner’s yoga class offered at our local Buddhist temple. Free yoga beats groupon yoga, I think. If not, there’s another 10am yoga class I can go to.
