slacker

i’ve been slacking a little with the yoga. i skipped the weekend, and tuesday/today. i’m not sure why, since it’s just a little bit of time in the morning.

i need to get back into the (week)daily routine.

sunny disposition

a friend once called me effervescent. i had no idea what it meant at the time.

a co-worker that recently left said he’d miss my bubbly personality.

i ran into a woman at a local coffee shop who said to her friend about me, “she always has such a sunny disposition!”

i’m glad these moments happen because they outweigh folks who know that i bike every day, all year and say (because the wind may have picked up or it’s sleeting a little), “you’re going to hate it out there.”

of course, i’m not going to hate it. i don’t hate anything, and i’m sorry that you’re so negative that you feel like you have to push your sad and grumpy attitude on someone who is clearly prepared to bike in a little wind or rain.

grow a pair, wouldya?

*edited to add that i’ve now also been described as frustratingly nice.

sun salute

i did day five of the 21 days of yoga this morning, i think i have the warm-up moves memorized now and am using the right muscles (not back but abs) to keep myself balanced.

i took yesterday off the routine to let the muscles rest a little, also because we inadvertently skipped dinner on saturday night, so my energy level was quite low.

in other news, i’ve started doing that thing where i get myself involved in several different activities in order to keep distracted. i’m going to start organizing a meetup which i’m getting work to sponsor. i’m trying to meet with a local pantry to see if i can volunteer (at least web services, if not time). and, i’m taking on another freelance gig; i’ll meet with the client this weekend.

i’m also meeting with a tattoo artist this afternoon to discuss a chest piece. i’m excited because her style is really neat.

namaste

i bought the 21-day yoga body thingy almost a year ago, thinking i would transform into a flexible stretchy machine overnight. well, now that i’m almost a year older, and that much wiser, i know that is an impossible feat to ask my body to accomplish.

after a really nice talk with a friend who’s gotten into coaching, i decided to give it another try.

i can’t do yoga in the living room because there are too many animals wondering if they can help or get petted since i’m at their level. so, we cleaned up the front bedroom enough that the floor is usable and my yoga mat lives in there now.

as of this morning, i’ve completed day three and, if nothing else, feel better and enjoy the quiet, centered time before getting ready for work.
