Have you ever wondered why human beings have this need to start new things on a Monday, as opposed to a Wednesday, or on January 1st as opposed to January 12th (assuming of course that January 12th isn’t a Monday)?
I guess there is something about the way we are wired that likes the order of beginning on the first day of a new week or the first day of a new year. I remember when I gave up smoking cigarettes thirty years ago, I picked a Monday to quit. I didn’t even think about picking any other day. I just knew – Mondays are the only days you can begin a new habit.[caption id="attachment_13321" align="alignleft" width="420"] I have to wait until Monday to start my diet[/caption]

Mark and I went to a hot yoga class last night, at a yoga studio here in York. Our friend Craig invited us. I mean, I thought he was our friend. Now I am not so sure. He failed to mention that this was a hot yoga class. I have taken a few beginner yoga classes at Lotus Moon in York city. Those classes were easy going, the room was the perfect temperature, there was happy morning sunlight streaming through the windows, and they played spa music, burned incense, and talked in a soothing voice about thanking yourself for all the beautiful things you do and how cool you are that you came to yoga.
Hot yoga is nothing like that at all and Craig failed to mentally prepare me for what was about to happen. Pretty sure I will never forgive him for that. Ever.
Until this past Saturday I was an official disc golf rookie. If you’re looking for a fun way to get more active and enjoy the outdoors, disc golf may be right up your alley. Our family has fun causally tossing discs into a goal in the backyard or into the entrance to our trampoline, but we were ready to aim for some real holes this time.
I am not going to PR my next marathon. There. I said it. Since I started running five years ago, each race I worked to be faster than the last time. Push push push. I worked hard for my PRs, … Continue reading
