Yoga again

I debated doing the shred today, but my aching back and shoulders from all that raking just wouldn't allow it. Instead, I did yoga. God, I love how Yoga limbers you up. The pain in my back has melted away, and I now feel "good".

I really can't wait until I can do this workout without trembling like a little kitten in front of a bull dog. I know that this isn't necessarily about muscular strength, but more about a state of calmness. Now that I've finished my class with the psycho teacher from hell (who's up for teaching me come the fall it looks like) - I see that I can certainly do these poses much better, still not well - but I also have a 2 year old. Nearly impossible to have mental calmness when there's a two year old around - especially when said 2 year old manages to find a bingo dabber...I have never played bingo other than in elementary...but the child is now the color of a smurf. Blue nose, blue ears, a blue belly button, blue fingers, blue knees, blue thighs and blue toes. No -- calm was a state I was attempting to get to -- not one that I was already in.

Anyhow - I'm going to do my best to get to my Shreds this week -- I've got a pile of assignments that I've successfully put off (which it now sounds like I'm doing for the shred)...hmm...

Mental calmness, that's the key? I'll never do it with shaking. ;)
Did you take any pictures of the little smurf?

Please comment, please. It makes me feel good, and well -- a woman just likes to feel good every now and then. I may not agree with your comment, it may even tick me off and make me want to delete it...but comment anyway and make my day.
