It wasn't difficult to follow (but would have been easier if my head could swivel at 360 degrees), but basically I did a 45-minute lunge. I mean, yes, he did bring us down to the doggie position (or whatever) and some ashuntungarasalanga-something or other, but basically we lunged for 45 minutes.
And then we did this whole series of poses that we held for 30 seconds to a minute (all originating in the lunge position), and this is where Tony asked me to crouch while slowly placing my legs upon my elbows (Is that even POSSIBLE??).
Last I checked, most of my weight is stored in my ass/thighs, making this a VERY unfair match up for my arm joints.
Now my legs were SHAKY when it was all said and done, which had me all kinds of paranoid for the kind of pain I'd be in today. You can imagine my surprise then, when I woke to a small amount of soreness in my legs, but massive-it-hurts-to-breathe pain in my rib-area. Not the abs, but whatever muscle is shaped like a lung.
I have come to the conclusion that yoga would be much easier, if I were boneless, or if I had arms like Popeye.
Anyway. New project.
The blog-world is a-buzz with all kinds of valentines day projects--and sewn notecards are all the rage, it seems! Well, here's my attempt to jump on the band wagon, beginning with a box of patterned cards from...you guessed it...Hobby Lobby. I wasn't planning on making 50, but honestly, the cost to buy 12 was so close to this price, I went for the better deal.
Look closely: they are NOT perfect. They are not meant to be perfect, but messy in their stitching! Character!
Another one of my favorites:
So, today I got a letter in the mail from a dear friend...and it made me think about how nobody sends REAL mail anymore. I used to write letters like crazy, and yet can't remember the last time I sent one. It's such a dying art form, don't you think?
Well, I got all excited about making these cards, because I am going to write me some letters. Randomly. Not for birthdays or any particular occasion (maybe we'll work into that in 2011), but just because. And as we speak, I have already crafted my first, to an unknowing recipient. Who reads this here blog and is incredibly encouraging!!
And my goal is to send one of these puppies out a week! On the condition that once you receive a letter, you give me some comment love. Because, I'm not sure if you know this, blogs live and die by comments. Lots and lots of comments. Hint.
Do you know someone who would love a letter? Why not join me...let's make the world a happy place, one piece of fun stationary at a time?
