The wedding is over. It was beautiful and amazing, and we all had a fabulous time. It’s bittersweet it’s over.
I went to yoga last night for the first time in over two weeks. I needed it desperately, both mentally and physically. I have been running a lot, usually 6 days/week, and my hips are starting to get pretty tight. Also, I have felt a little unbalanced lately, surely from lack of sleep and lack of yoga. So, I had a chance to go last night, and I took it. Boy, was it hard. Really, really difficult. I actually felt nauseous a few times. It was very challenging, and I was cursing myself for not going consistently, and vowed to go more often, even if just once/week. My body/brain needs it. Even though it sucked and was hard, and I felt like I was going to barf, I still made it through in one piece.
Saturday is my birthday. I am leaving for Boise Friday morning with someone very special. He is taking me to a place that means a lot to him, and I am very excited to: travel with him, spend my birthday with him, do all the cool things we’re going to do (climbing, hiking, camping, hot springs, college football game), meet his friends, and have a vacation. It will be really good for us, and not only is it my birthday, but it marks the end of my party-on summer. After this weekend, I will ease back into training mode. I won’t be super strict until January, but I will regain a lot of my focus, and be on more of a schedule, which I am thoroughly looking forward to. 🙂
