I let you see my private yoga space

Oh man, this week has been crazy so far.  Seriously, I'm really not sure what's up with this week.  This week is officially giving me all of the reasons in the world to just not give a poop about blogging, but I miss you all, and so here I am.  I thought I was going to write about our ski weekend, but I'm just not in that mindset right now.  Instead, I think it's appropriate to just recap my week thus far, so you can understand what we're working with around here.
Monday I didn't take a lunch at work, which meant I ran after work.  I got home and the great debate was running outside in the sunshine, or breaking in my new shoes some more on the Treadmill while watching Scandal.  And don't you know it, the treadmill had me at pretty new kicks and Kerry Washington being devious and awesome.

After the tv-watching binge that was Vampire Diaries for me, I've made a rule that I can only watch Scandal while I'm on the treadmill.  This is probably the only time I will hope for awful weather until May ;-).

Tuesday I managed to get in some yoga for 30 minutes on my lunch.  It was kind of meh for me.  I don't feel like it was long enough for me to get into, and I was left feeling un-grounded and not centered.  Also, I ended up staying late at work, because I had a deadline that I really wanted to meet.  And overall, I just felt off all day.  I came home to lots of homework, and some weird problems with my right ear.

This part of my office is my yoga studio.  I move the chairs and it's almost enough space for most yoga goodness.  Please note that my plant is not always that droopy, just when I forget to water it for a couple of days.  I have 8 plants in my office, and remembering all of their watering schedules is the hardest part of my job.  If you're ever in the area and need an oxygen infusion, just let me know, and I'll let you come sit in my office for an hour.

And yesterday was just a cluster.  Truly.  Nothing was really working for me, from an early morning meeting, having to go to campus for one of my classes, losing my cell phone, going back to campus to look for my phone, my double declining balance spreadsheet not computing properly, Gunner getting in trouble at doggy day care... it was a mess.  But I ran in spite of the mess.  I pretty much shook my fist at that mess, and told it all to shove it with that after-work run in the sun.

...And a Sweaty Selfie, because really, what else in life makes you feel half as pretty as taking a picture of your stanky, sweaty, red-faced self?

Then I came home and make egg and turkey sandwiches for dinner and did our taxes.  My life I tell you, it's enviable.
How has your week been going so far?


  1. I love that you do Yoga at work!! Do you have your own office or are brave and do it in front of an audience?

  2. I think it's awesome that you have your yoga space in your office. And I REALLY want to run today, but i just don't know if I will be able to. So lame. Hope today has been a little more enjoyable for you! :)


I love comments! Please let me know how you feel, and make sure I have a way to get back with you, so we can be friends :-)
