Ok - I freaking love the commentathon. I've never felt so RIGHT about something as when 20something people agree with me!
I did go to yoga last night (I was admittedly nervous) and Dan didn't say anything, and the owner actually took class with us. I don't know what she said - but he was back to his 'old self' - still a task master, but not nasty. I was happy. And I had a GREAT class.
A bunch of you asked what I thought about yoga and how it helps with stress levels. I really like the 'hot' yogas - Baron Baptiste and Bikram. They are also the more vigorous types of yoga (power yoga - some people call them?). And also - I'm a 'type A' person - I really don't do well in the 'relax and breathe' type class. For me, being in a room with 50% humidity and 110 degrees and then doing difficult yoga postures is an awesome way for me to be forced to take my mind off of any other crap I have going on. Since I've to going to yoga (4 times a week, starting in March) I've lost 20 pounds and have seen a noticeable change in my body shape and stress level (well on the stress level part - not so much last week, but in general). Also - I have been sleeping really well. For a while there - I was staying up all night thinking about stupid stuff... now I'm so wiped out, I just fall asleep (and stay asleep) all night!
I think that there is a yoga out there for everyone. Maybe power yoga isn't for you - but try the other kinds also! And - when you are treating your body so well with exercise, it's hard to eat like crap (another benefit). My friends who have gone onto have babies say that the yoga breathing really helped them through labor too.
I appear to be slowly coming out of my funk. I have been noticing that I still have ECM - so I'm starting to stress that I pegged my O date wrong - but then I let it go. What am I going to do about it if I did? Aaron is in Las Vegas!!
Off to leave a bunch of comments.... and thanks to everyone who left me comments yesterday!
