Magnolia’s 47 Day Challenge: Day 3 More Yoga Joy with Joy-elle
Posted Dec 17 2009 5:30am
I’m really getting sick of this exercise crap.
It’s been 3 days and well, I can do without it, frankly. My legs hurt, my back hurts, my arms hurt, my head hurts and it hurts to breathe.
Imagine what it’s going to be like at Yoga class, part deaux with joyful Joy-elle and she reminds me to breathe.
“Um, I can’t Joy-elle. It hurts.”
My daughter began to complain yesterday about a sore throat. I secretly rejoiced because I thought she might not feel well enough today to go to the health club.
Then it dawned on me that I had posted my 47 day challenge and that you all would be following my progress. Which meant that I would have to do something responsible and go anyway. Then I could come back and tell you all about how my daughter was sick, but that I kept my commitment and went to the gym without her.
This morning she said she had a sore throat AND a stuffy nose. In my feigned concern for her health, I asked…“so do you want to stay home?”
No. No, she didn’t. What’s WITH these teenagers anyway??? Sigh.
So, we’re off to another delightful hour with Joy-elle. I’m in a pissy mood already. I’m having hot flashes every night and slept totally naked underneath my sheet and blanket and I was still hot.
My little Jack Russell is like my own personal heater as she molds her little Jack Russell body into mine at night. She could actually be the source of my body temperature woes. I’m not sure yet.
I’ll be back later to tell you all about my third and at this rate, perhaps most miserable day at the gym.
Update: Since I began this post, my daughter has said she can’t go. She has a headache, a stuffy nose and a sore throat. It’s now 8:29 a.m. and I have approximately 15 minutes to get myself dressed and out the door for my date with Joy-elle. Looks like I’m going to have to do this alone.
