post holiday goaling


I did this on Saturday. Blame Groupon and its look alikes, and my friends for banding together to buy some classes from a place that also instructs grown women on how to pole dance. I needed to try something new since winter running is just not happening right now (it's too cold, too rainy, I'm too sleep deprived...who forgot to tell me 6 month-old babies morph into teething monsters that forget how great they used to sleep?). So, aerial yoga came into my life. Somewhat awkwardly, but effectively.  There were moments when I thought my liability waiver might become relevant (like when I was upside down with no real plan on how to right myself), but two days later my abs are still painfully sore. I'm looking forward to next Saturday, although the Zumba class this week will probably just remind me of the few shameful hip hop classes I took in college. Which was embarrassing for everyone involved.

While on the subject, with this new year I am going to pretend that a tiny little Jon is listening on my shoulder during all my conversations as to prevent verbal gaffes, find somewhere to play my violin on a regular basis, and to make time for writing and sewing.

One more goal: Make sure I never even think of attending the "Cardio Striptease" class.

Nice re-cap of the aerial yoga, and so with you on the striptease. No thanks. Anyhow, I got my violin out on Saturday afternoon- first time in year(s) unfortunately. Are you thinking of joining an orchestra, or just finding a place where you can play by yourself?

I would have loved to see your graceful self in that class! You need to do a floating session to catch up on some sleep.

when i read that the first time i thought you were announcing that you were signing up for pole dancing. sure glad i misread that. that yoga looks pretty and fun. i could use a little david on my shoulder too.

I'm glad we all survived that class without incident! And also glad that we all liked it! Can't wait to go back!

I didn't even know there was such a thing as floating yoga! Your posts are always so funny.

ha. I like this blog. I also thought my waiver might come in to play at a few different points. But as long as I keep feeling that sore after class I will keep going.
