Day 91: Baby It’s Cold Outside

Day 91:  One of the worst feelings in the world to me is getting out of a warm bed on a cold day and today I had to do that twice.  That might sound lazy, but let me explain!  Mike and I had to drive from Washington, DC to Norfolk, VA at 3:30 a.m. for him to finish up some paperwork to process out of the Navy.  We were back in the District eating pizza by 1:30 p.m.  We were tired puppies.

When we got home we both crashed for about 90 minutes, which only left time for a quick 45 minute workout.  We raced down to the gym in my parents building and did our own respective body moving.  I’ll admit, I was incredibly low energy.  I kept going back to the warm bed lazy feeling and then I’d think about this and perk my bod right up:  Denver Post Debut

Needless to say, that helped me get through the busy day.  Now I am off with my darling man, big brother, Mom and Step Dad to celebrate Michael being out of the Navy!  Afterwards, I get to reunite with some old DC pals.  I’d say today is pretty wonderfully, perfectly, fantastically (cold)!

Day 90: Tranquil Space

Day 90: I lived in Washington, DC for a year and a half and did not stumble upon Tranquil Space until the last two months of my time here.  Once I started practicing here it instantly became my favorite studio in the city. It is tucked into the bustling heart of Dupont Circle, yet when I step inside the entryway I am immediately calmed by the cozy relaxed feel.

Today I went to an open flow class with my friend Stacy.  The class was packed mat to mat, each mat filled with a seemingly skilled yogi.  The instructor, Siobhan, has studied under well-known yogi’s Shiva Rea, Baron Baptiste and loads of other dreamy practitioners.  Her love for the practice shines through like the sun on a bluebird day.  She found her way over to adjust me numerous times and I felt incredibly lucky to be given so much special attention.  I’d like to think that it was not because of my lack of skill, but because she could feel how happy I am and she was drawn to me.  Yep, that was definitely it.
