Day TWENTY TWO
After months of looking, The Husband and I saw a house with our realtor that showed real promise. I don’t want to talk about it for fear of jinxing things but it was one of those things where we walked into the house and The Husband and I looked at each other and said, “Hmmm…I can see us living here.” One of my co-workers told me that this house hunting experience was going to be similar to shopping for a wedding dress: you just get a feeling that this is the one. I guess the only difference is that many women can buy and wear the same wedding dress but only one owner can buy that one house.
10am with Caroline. It was a good class and it was generally uneventful — didn’t feel awesome, rock-my-world nor did I feel terrible, awful, etc. It was just okay. I found myself slipping in triangle again…and in this studio, we step to the left side of our mat and we do the poses on the carpet. Hmmm…maybe yesterday wasn’t about my slippery mat but about not keeping everything engaged and super tight. When we got to the first set, right side head to knee with stretching pose, Caroline exclaimed, “ActionJoJo, what are you doing?!” She corrected me big time when we went to the left. In an effort to try to get my forehead to my knee and bending my leg as much as I can, she said that I was going into the pose in the reverse. I have been bending my leg, tucking in my chin, getting forehead to knee, and then reaching around my foot to get into the bikram grip. Well, I’m to reach down, grab my foot, bend forward and then inf my forhead to my knee doesn’t touch, then bend it. She told me later in the locker room, “All you’re doing is tucking your chin in! You’re spine is changing day by day if you get into the posture right.” Thanks Caroline for always being immensely helpful! Namaste!
