I HATE YOGA. AHHH! Going to do it now and then shower and break up boxes that have been sitting in the foyer since I moved in.
Oops, it isn’t yoga day. It is Shoulders & Arms day…..A SIGH OF RELIEF.
I can never remember what day of the week it is since I’m unemployed.
P.S. remember weeks ago when I was having diarrhea for like.. a week? Well, still happening. I guess I must learn to live with it because it is never going to stop! WTH?!?!?
83-years-old Bette Calman is living proof that the ancient art of yoga can do wonders on the human body. Bette Calman has been practicing and teaching yoga for the last 40 years and, although other people her age can hardly move anymore, she can pool of difficult yoga moves that put teenagers to shame. She can execute the “peacock” a difficult position in which the body is held horizontally, using only the power of the arms, the “bridge”, “lotus” and can stand on her head with unnatural ease. Asked when she is going to retire, Calman said ‘You’re never too old. The body is a remarkable instrument. ‘It can stretch and stretch, and get better all the time. Forget age’ Ms Bette Calman teaches up to 11 classes every week, in Williamstown, Australia, teaching others the remarkable effects of yoga.
Krista Cahill is insane.
She is really big into her health, her wellness, and the dreaded yoga (well, I dread it at least!). So she has had a few inspirational things to say and I was going to write a whole thing about her, but I think she worded everything she had to say beautifully, so I’m just going to quote her.
What got you into fitness and healthy living? And do you find that it is a happiness that comes in and through hard work rather than what is present when there is not work? I always find that to be the case. Yoga is NOT easy, not eating chocolate is NOT easy, etc. But its a different kind of happiness, a more spiritual happiness, if you will, that is attained than giving into the immediacy of one’s desires… Its a form of cultivation. I think about healthy things a lot and I know A LOT about healthy things. Makes me SO happy to hear that you are taking care of your body. Also, fitness is not only about the physical. Fitness is mental fitness as well… so that needs to be figured out. Also, my one word to you: TEA!!!! Tea is so important. It is liquid goal, so to speak.
She has grown to be such a beautiful woman with a beautiful mind and spirit. It’s amazing how life guides you to people when you need them most. I have not spoken to her in years and all-the-sudden, there she is! Ready to motivate me and inspire me to work for my goals and aspirations.
It was the first time I did Yoga in weeks because I hate it and I had been skipping it. My flexibility is so poor, but I powered through. The meditation at the end is my favorite part. I blew out the candles because they were distracting me, closed my laptop because Tony Horton is so irritating with his “MMMMMMMMMs” & was in total silence for about 5 minutes.
I’m definitely PMSing. I’m unmotivated and exhausted and just wanna eat everything in my path.
It’s pretty warm out though so I have my windows open and the breeze might feel nice while yoga-ing. Maybe I’ll light a few candles and turn off the lights. I did that once before and I fell right to sleep after.
