Even my hair follicles hurt

Ahhhhh, yoga.

OW, yoga.

My foray back into the studio (one of those pesky resolution things) was fantastic and juicy and exhilirating while it was happening, not so much for a few days following that initial class.

See, they heat the room at my studio to almost 100 degrees. You won't believe the positions you can wrestle yourself into after spending an hour basically doing calisthenics in that kind of heat. It fools you into thinking you're Gumby. Guess what. You're not. There, I saved you a lot of pain. In addition to all that, you sweat like a meatloaf. There's dripping and everything.

I was CRIPPLED. Crippled I say. Unbelievably sore the next day and the next day and the next. I couldn't lift my arms higher than shoulder height and just sitting still hurt. I was too weak to take pictures. On the third day, I rose again and dragged my moaning, sorry ass to the yoga class at my office and tried to work out some of the ouch. (Seriously though - moaning does make it hurt a bit less)

It sort of worked. Felt kind of horrible while I was doing it - and oh MY GOD, I didn't realize how agonizing bridge pose could be. The day after though, I definitely felt a bit better. I could once again dress myself.

By the end of the week, the bod was mostly back to normal. I could cross my legs without wincing and holding my breath, and showering wasn't much of a challenge anymore.

So now I'm doing it all over again this week. Why not? Hey, maybe I could get my very own telethon out of it. A telethon for sweaty, crippled meatloaves (meatloafs?).

Is Jerry Lewis still alive?

This is my yoga bag.

I haven't practiced in so long that I can't remember the last time I was in the studio.

I am attending the hardest class they offer after work today.

If you don't hear from me for a few days, send beer. And cheese. And maybe some painkillers and BenGay.

The bird crap remains


After the somewhat anti-climactic snowfall, the Trusty Focus is ready to convey my cabin-fever suffering rear end to the office.

Out and About on Wednesday (daily photo)

At the Gap
(in the dressing room! Naughty!)

This is my first try at blogging from my phone - so in case it's wonky looking, hopefully that's the reason.

It's 2011, do you know where your kids are?

Happy New Year to you all. I hope your 2011 is even better than 2010.

Have you seen the gyms? For the next three weeks the parking lots will be full.

Resolutions, shmesolutions. I did, however, try to come up with some things that I would attempt to make a commited effort to in the coming year; things like 'get back into a regular yoga practice', and 'save more, spend less' - you know, the normal shmesolution-type dreck. I did gleap an idea from a commenter over on Jezebel - she took a photo each day with her iPhone and posted it to her blog as a sort of chronicle of her year. This, I thought, I can do. And since 'blog' was on the list of things to hopefully get around to - they seemed to go hand in hand with each other and lo and behold! it's January 4th and I've yet to post a frigging thing.

OK, well, without further ado, I present you with my first three photos. 3, not 4, because there wasn't anything that interesting to take a picture of yesterday. So, we'll all have to live with the fact that I'm probably not going to get 365 pictures posted this year. I figure that if I get half that; I'll be doing pretty good. Nothing like aiming mediocre.

Did any of you guys make any resolutions? Even if it was to drink more, eat more and sleep more?
