So P says I need to blog more, and I said that I didn't have anything to really blog about, but I remembered that back in the day when I blogged all the time, I didn't really have much to say then either, I just blogged anyway. So here I go, I'm going to try to blog a few times a week.

Today is Fella's birthday.  He asked for a tie.  Yes, like a NECKTIE.  He is such a grown up it's so weird.  Anyway, he wants a tie, and he shall have a tie. Two actually (Brooks Brothers was having a 50% off sale).  And a bottle of cologne I got a ridiculously good price on (at TJ MAXX), and dinner at Ruth's Chris.  He is a whole 33 years old today.  Yes, in fact, I am a cradle robber. :)

Today's is Merlin's 7th Gotcha Day.  Which means that he came to live with me seven whole years ago.  Time flies, flies, flies.

I haven't written my book yet. The book that I started two and a half years ago, and the one I was going to write when I left Colorado and moved to Charlotte for the summer.  Part of the reason I'm trying to restart the blogging is so that I can get writing again.  Writing ANYTHING.

So... yoga.  When I was going almost every day, my skin was fine, but if I went only here and there it would break out.  As the wedding approached I was busier and busier and wasn't making it on a daily basis, so I quit going altogether so my skin would be clear for the wedding.  And then... I never went back. Until this week.  I went on Monday, which I had to pretty much force myself to do, and I came out of there in the BEST MOOD EVER and I was all bouncy and energetic.  Then I started remembering all the good things about it-- how I quit clenching my jaw, how I was so calm and way less anxious than normal. So I went again on Thursday, and I'll try to go again tomorrow.  And at least three times a week from now on.  And the thing I have to remember is while I don't necessary love doing the class, I LOVE having done the class.  And so I shall.  Unless and until I get knocked up and have to switch to a non-hot yoga class.

Well looky there.  And I thought I had nothing to say...

I understand about yoga - I feel that way about Zumba. I always leave there feeling lots better.

I need to find something that will improve my overall well being, physical and mental. I'm feeling so much better than I ever have since being diagnosed in 2005, so a regular physical regimen is now way past due.

Oh, and writing! Yes, a regular writing regimen is past due for me as well.

You described exercise so well I shall have to adopt your quote: "I don't like doing it - I just like having done it." Perfect!

I was doing so well exercising last year this time - roughly 20-25 miles a week. But it's raining so fecking much here and still so cold I just want to stay under the covers every morning. Just when I need to stay fit because I DID get knocked up... Grrr!
