Body and Mind

I'm feeling rather pleased with myself at the present moment. I've managed to get myself to pull out my yoga mat TWICE this week. This Tuesday, before dragging my sorry butt in to work, I unrolled it and did a sun salutation, which is a set of about a dozen yoga poses. I was still a bit under the weather, so the one set was enough to get me mildly winded. This morning I unrolled it again and did two repeats. I would have done more but I didn't have much time (having woken up a little late) and I was happy to have just taken the little bit of time to do any.

Yesterday, I decided that I was going to actively change my perspective. Instead of worrying about my appearance, wondering if I looked frumpy, fat or anything else, I decided that I would revel in my curvaceousness. I wanted to rejoice in the curves that many women have envied and many men have lusted over. I lifted my head high and allowed myself to believe that I was an incredible, delectable, drop dead gorgeous babe. It was incredible. I felt confident and uplifted.

Today on my way home from work, I grabbed some fresh veggies at the produce stand. They had white asparagus on sale, two bunches for $2, so I thought I'd give them a try. I'm not really a fan. But the stir-fry and rice was delicious!

I wonder what tomorrow will have in store for me!
