No, seriously, I am back.
I am back and I am seriously back, I have missed posting about my Bikram yoga (mis)adventures. I am still practicing regularly and I am still working at the same job. I now have two cats, who I will assign the blog names of Miss M and Cranky Crankerson. They actually get along pretty well, but I think that Cranky Crankerson has already given me a bad performance review with regards to timeliness in terms of feeding and recreational stimulation. Well, you can’t please everyone 😦
My practice has been going pretty well. I can actually do the full expression of fixed firm pose, minus getting my knees back together.
I have also received a major wake up call with regards to my poor diet. I was in the habit of purchasing Home Run Inn frozen pizzas after class to satisfy my cravings for salty, cheesy, greasy stuff. Nevertheless, my wallet got thinner and the fat and salt and other stuff accumulated in my body like plaque. It didn’t look like it, in fact I looked healthy and fit. But, it was harder and harder to maintain satisfactory performance in Bikram and in my new endeavor, rock climbing.
A new hobby!
I started indoor rock climbing after I told a friend that it would be fun if we hung out more. He suggested going to his rock climbing gym. Even though we couldn’t work out a date to meet up, I went to the gym and I fell in love with it. I hadn’t rock climbed since I was a freshman in college. I knew that I had to come back after that one day.
Bikram is still my foundation, but I also find that it has enabled me to tolerate the difficulty and uncertainty that goes with rock climbing as a person who is afraid of heights and has control issues.
