I can see my toes OVER my head!!!

This IS HUGE!!

I have fallen back in love with Bikram yoga.

A long time ago (about 12 years ago) I used to practice about 9 times a week. I loved it, it made me full of energy, helped me stay slim, it just all round made me feel good.

I forgot how much I LOVE IT!

When I started back at my first Bikram class 2 weeks ago I could BARLEY (and that's being nice) stand the whole class, I was dizzy, lightheaded, nauseous. It was bad. But I stuck it out, stayed in the class.

And kept going back.

And 8 classes later I AM BACK!! And I want to scream it for the world to hear!!

This is the posture that has eluded me for weeks

And today I HIT IT! all 4 times.

I think I may have done a little happy dance, and at the end of class while we were resting in the last posture the instructor was talking about "The best thing about teaching is seeing a student work SO HARD, and being there their first class and seeing how far and well they have come"

To be honest it felt like he was talking just to me.

And maybe he was.

A friend of mine mentioned 2012 last night to me and it's the first I heard about it so I jumped on here out of curiosity. I think it's kind of sick and sounds like a bunch of skeptical jargon.
I choose to live every day like it is the last because let's be real, WHO THE HELL KNOWS what is going to happen or when it's your time to go on. The past is history, the future is a mystery and now is a gift, thats why it's called the present. It's not healthy to sit around and trip out about when you will die. Stop wasting your time you have now.
