I went to bed last night determined to NOT be lazy anymore. I want to get my act together and get back to exercising regularly and being careful about what I eat. I checked the weather last night for this morning, so I knew it was going to be bitterly cold (the forecast last night was for a low of 15, with a windchill around 5). John and I decided not to brave the cold and to just work out inside, instead.
Getting up wasn’t too hard, although it took a little longer than it should have. It takes turning the light on to make getting up inevitable. John headed to the basement to lift weights, and I grabbed my yoga mat and 5-lb dumbbells for Yoga Booty Ballet!
I can’t decide – no. I like parts of the video, but I just can’t do the yoga section. I am incapable of touching the ground with my hands while my legs are straight (and my feet are flat on the ground). Just can’t do it. And that seems to be an inescapable part of yoga. Or at least of the yoga parts of this video. I’m sure there are other yoga-related positions that don’t ask me to do that. My point is that because that’s what they base most of the yoga portion on, I can’t do it. I try to fake it, but I don’t feel like I’m getting anything out of it. I wouldn’t mind taking a beginner yoga class or something. I just think I’ll be skipping the yoga section of this video.
Anyway, I mentioned the weather forecast earlier for a reason. I didn’t check it again until I was done with Yoga Booty Ballet (! (I think it should always end with an exclamation mark.)), and by then the sun was up. The temperature outside, after the sun had been up for about 30 minutes, was 15 degrees. The windchill? -1. Yes, that’s one below zero. It is NOT supposed to get that cold here. Especially not when it hit 60 degrees four days ago, and it’s going to be in the 50s in two days. What’s the weather trying to do, make us all sick? Is this revenge for global warming?
Okay, so I’m not really that outraged about the weather. It’s fake outrage. I admit it. What are you gonna do about it, huh? And there’s some fake belligerence. I’m done now. With the fake emotions, I mean. 🙂 Also, I’m done with this post.
