I don’t know if I shared I started doing yoga at the university a few weeks ago. Well today was the second time I went and very much enjoyed it. I figured out karate, what I was doing before, is not for me once they started telling me I needed to cut my fingernails and participate in some strong one-on-one combat practice. It was very clear I was not going to put myself in a position to be physically injured or hurt someone else, and cut my nails and give up perfectly manicured hands, are you kidding me? It was just not for me. Now you see where my priorities lie, don’t you? So, I played around with my schedule and was able to fit in Wednesday yoga classes.
For some reason I have been madly into exercising this week and apparently at CSS they thought I needed a little more. Remember those jogging classes I had agreed to teach? Well, they found someone a couple weeks back, so I ended lucking out and only did one class. Yes, I was thrilled, when the principal told me I was off that hook, and in his word, didn’t have to do jogging ever again. But today after having gone to the gym both Monday and Tuesday and right after my yoga class (which is power yoga, and leaves me sweaty and achy), I walked into the school to find out they needed someone to jog. I immediately thought “ok, this is it, I will die now”.
You see, I am not an exercising fanatic. I don’t even like it to begin with. I do it because a- I have to to keep slim, b- because it’s good for my body and I can’t let laziness win, and c-because, ultimately, when it’s done, the endorfinas (how do you say this in English?) kick in and it makes me feel good (I like feeling good).
I did it. I jogged with the kids. At some point I just stood there counting laps, but I did my share too. I obviously didn’t know I would be jogging outside today, so I didn’t have enough layers on me and would freeze if I just stood there. I’m afraid though, tomorrow I will be regretting this. And tomorrow was a go-to-the-gym-for-cardio-AND-weights day… I guess we’ll see about that won’t we?
