Yo! Gah!

I went to yoga yesterday. I haven't done that in such a long time. I kept making all sorts of excuses, like, "I'm too hungover today," "I'm getting brunch with a friend instead," "I should stay in and clean the apt". It was actually a rough session for me. I had made sure to eat enough breakfast so that I wouldn't get lightheaded, but I hadn't drank enough water so I got lightheaded anyway. Ran out of the room during Warrior pose when I started seeing spots, and gulped down some water in the front area. Was mostly fine after that. Over the summer I was pretty good about bringing my water bottle filled with Emergen-C, must remember to do that again. Electrolytes, important! Also, my sinuses are unhappy so every time I did Downward Dog (dirty!) I gave myself a headache. Not to mention my new yoga mat still smells like plastic. Not good when you're trying to take a deep, cleansing breath and all you can think is, "Agh! Toxic!"

Still felt nice and loose when I got home and I cleared my sinuses with my neti pot. I just did a quick practice this morning while my coffee was brewing. I will definitely be back next week...I want to make sure I'm in the habit of going every Wednesday so that I still make myself in the winter when all I really want to do is stay inside and huddle under blankets.

we should make a date to go together and have cleansing coffee/tea/uh whatever afterwards.

I'm free most Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Just lemme know when!

The same thing happened to me during my yoga class on Tuesday -- dehydrated and bad sinuses. And then my toe started cramping so I literally fell over during warrior.

I miss yoga! Now that I "want" to go again, I don't have the cashola. I'm planning to start on my own again in a few weeks, when it's too cold to bicycle outdoors.

Habits can be very powerful and self-perpetuating... Good call on trying to create a good habit!
