I made a real New Year's resolution this year for a change - I vowed to start attending yoga classes again. I was driven to this by the fact that every time I walk or stand or sit or lie down, my hip seizes up and presses on my sciatica, which makes my leg go dead. Then I start walking funny, which makes my back hurt. Apparently 50 is the new 80 around here - I'm gimping around on a bad leg and groaning every time I have to get up or down from the couch.
Larry insists it's sexy. He's nobody's fool.
|This totally isn't me.|
Also, I hate the way all the women in these videos have waists. I miss mine terribly. And everyone (in the videos AND in class) has such cute outfits - why can't I find me one of those? Believe me, I've tried. I walk into Target or Kohl's, determined to purchase a colorful form-fitting, sweat-wicking spandex something-or-other, and I walk out with yet another pair of black leggings to wear with some lousy-fitting t-shirts I have at home. Every single time. WHERE DOES EVERYONE GET THEIR CUTE EXERCISE CLOTHES?
And who knew yoga could be so stressful?
