It’s such a gorgeous fall day here. Nice and brisk.
Before I dove into my Nap Time To-Do List this morning, I made myself do 20 minutes of yoga, and I’m so glad I did. Something about doing yoga on a Friday makes me feel really good. Yoga on a Monday is more of “Hey, look at me starting the week off right and feeling super motivated after not doing anything all weekend.” But when you do it on a Friday… I don’t know, it just feels good. Kind of like you are just letting go of all the tension from the week and welcoming the weekend with freshly opened hips and a more, uh, supple sacrum. Wait, what?
One of the top five things I miss about living in Fort Collins is the access we had to a number of yoga classes (and spin classes) at the gym right down from where we lived. There is no such thing here in the cornfields, BUT there is YouTube, and I can work with that.
side note: our gym was next door to Whole Foods, so a lot of times we’d go to a class then go eat all of their fancy food samples. shh.
Do yourself a favor sometime today: light a candle, roll out a mat, and open those hips. This is my favorite YouTube yoga lady – Sadie Nardini. And this is one of my favorite videos she does because it is short and sweet and ends with a crow pose.
Onto those chores. Happy Weekend!!!
