Last night was the first full session of yoga - and it felt sooooooooo good. Painful at times, while the muscles were deciding whether or not they wanted to let go of the tension, but there was one moment, after many hip-opening exercises, where I was in Child's pose and K sat on my hips to push thme down further. The relief washed over me like a warm ocean wave - my hips, for the first time in forever, opened and completely relaxed. No tension, no pressure on my tailbone, no spine riding higher on one side.

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

I'm a little sore on one side of my hips today - the side that is usually tense, but otherwise, it feels good.

I've also been really good about not eating too much - but instead eating smaller portions more frequently. I'm not sure if that is because of the nature of eating at home a lot (restaurant portions are so HUGE!) or schedule, or both. Either way I like it.

Oh, and J's affectionate-you-must-pay-attention-to-me-because-aren't-I-cute cat was a constant companion during yoga. At one point, I was in triangle pose and she leapt onto my back and made herself comfortable. It was rather adorable. I didn't mind in the least.

I'm trying to convince myself to try doing the running thing for the 5K next May. It starts with walking. dunno. I think I'll have to think about that one for a while longer first.
