You Yoga.  Me.  owcha.  That sums out class today pretty well.  It serves me right.  My attendance of late has been well, sporadic.  Almost nonexistent.  I wasn't even really planning on going today.  I just had a moment of guilt.
"Hey, Si, wanna go to child watch today?"  (expecting his usual scream of NO!)
"Sure!  Chil-watch!  Yeah!"  (damn.)
So to yoga we went.  Today was a dog day. (oof.  I mean woof.)  More up and down dogs than I could count.  Thus I spent a lot of time in child and table...because this dog only goes down so many times.  On the plus side I did get to be a warrior princess.  I LOVE the warrior poses.

Si guy was ready by the time I got back.  We rewarded ourselves with an hour at the park.  Outside beats a sweaty studio anytime.

Judgement day is coming

To keep from an automatic 10% rate hike next year, Mr. M's insurance company is requiring a biometric they can legitimately raise our rates by classes instead.  In a way, that's what got this ball rolling...but I'm glad it did.
Even though there's no way I'll have a "passing" BMI or waist circumference, I'm going in the right direction and motivation is good.
My other numbers will probably all be okay.  They were last year, and I'm eating better and more active now than I was then.  How's the workout schedule going?
Fall has blown it to bits.  I still get to tai chi, most of the time.  I would like to get to aqua more, but at the moment am being thwarted by kid football, soccer, and before school activities.  Si Guy is willing to go to child watch occassionally, so yoga is kind of back in the picture. On the "unofficial" front though, I walk regularly to local stores, walk and play on the playground with my other kids during practices, and walk laps w/ Si at the football I'm still doing something.  It's just a lot more outdoor something and less at the community center.  Come November, I'm sure that'll change.

The pool is open! The pool is open!

Finally.  Hyper-chlorination "just in case"  "even though we never had a problem" at my favorite community center is done.  So tomorrow, the hippo is hauling herself out of bed at 4:30am for a 5:45 aqua class.  Really.
I thought this on Monday afternoon about Tuesday morning too....but then there was the skating party.   Yes, the hippo mom skated, for about an hour.  So come Tuesday morning her body was saying, "I don't think so.  You exceeded your 500 calorie per workout limit.  Today is rebound day."  But tomorrow will be different.  Really.   I believe it so, so so it will be.
