Day 131: This Ain't Your Grandma's Yoga

That's right! Today was my first day back at the gym. It was a Joyful Moment being welcomed back by all my gym friends.

But it was REALLY a Joyful Moment attending yoga class again. It's a Power Yoga class and it's like yoga on steroids. Except I'm pretty sure yogis would never ever do steroids, but you get the point. It's hard. It was hard even when I was in pretty good shape pre-pregnancy. It was exceedingly hard today. I even kind of sort of almost passed out at one point. But I sat down and put my head between my knees and rested a moment. Not a Joyful Moment.

But then I was able to get back up and finish the rest of the class. JOYFUL MOMENT!!! I've really missed working out. It was so great to be back and doing yoga was the perfect way to get back into it. I felt great!

Wishing you all Joyful Moments on steroids (metaphorically speaking, of course)!

I can't believe your first yoga after the baby was power yoga - I did that with you - it's a killer! I'm glad you survived. My joy was in spending a day with Roger's parents, being able to do some projects they needed and just being happy to spend time together.
