4th, 5th, 6th

If Yesterday was May the 4th be with you, Star Wars Day,

And Today is Cinco de Mayo,

Does that make Monday Revenge of the 6th?

Pet names

I’ve been called many things over the years, but my favorite pet name that I’ve been called is “Fred”.

Bet you weren’t expecting that?

What is the best Pet Name you’ve been called, or called someone else?

Where did pet names come from, I wonder?

#5 my biggest issue

I’m an over thinker.

So I’ve stood up to the Non-Profit where I’ve volunteered to be abused.

Now I’m overthinking.

Just looking at the previous 2 sentences, I’m really happy. I can let that s#!% go.

I’m very grateful today:

Crossing off trying to please everyone.

Crossing off fearing change, I’m an agent of change, baby.

Crossing off living in the past.

Crossing off Putting myself down.

Working on Overthinking.

I’ve made progress.

Yoga, the ups and downs

It’s been a full year of consistent practice. A full year of Yin, Wheel Flow, TRX, and a smattering of other classes I could fit in.

Yin is a focused practice of holding passive poses to open up joints, increase flexibility, and improve blood flow.

Wheel Flow is a new thing. It incorporates a Vinyasa flow with a yoga wheel to improve strength and balance. We do inversions, it’s generally done warm 83+/- degrees. Lots of sweat and swearing. Plank is a resting pose in this class. It is vigorously challenging.

TRX is my favorite. Hard rock blaring, lots of sweat, body weight movement, developed by Navy Seals. It’s gritty, rough, challenging and I dig it.

I know my body has changed, because I used to wear the same sized clothes top and bottom. Now, I require 2 sizes larger on top to make room for my shoulders and today in Yin, we got into table top. When I looked in the mirror…..

Yep, I resemble a pit bull. I think I’ve got to do something about this. I just really dig the strength.

During my Zumba weight class today, we did some shadow boxing with weights. I was digging the muscles that were drenched in sweat.

If course,when I got home, I was still sweating after my shower, and every time I put my glasses on I fogged them up for the next two hours.

Great work out.

Plank anyone?

How do you sweat? With music, or without? What kinda music keeps you going when you sweat?

For me, it’s Hard driving rock for TRX, classical for Yin Yoga, and something deep bass and bluesy for wheel.
