Since I hurt my back I have been lying low on the exercise tip. I had my first full yoga class tonight and it kicked a*****. I love my instructor and my very best friend in the whole wide world takes the class with me. Her sister in law is also in the class and most days, just the three of us show up. It's right at sunset in a kind of rough but getting hip OLDDD part of the city. Very "historic" y'know. Anyway. We chant. Oh yeah, chant. I thought it was a little wierd at first too, and I am pretty much tone deaf so I was petrified. I am starting to feel like I HAVE TO CHANT. It's amazing. When we do the first "om" to start the class, it's best to think that you are trying to make the sound come through your chest. My WHOLE solar plexus vibrates. At the end, we do a meditation and then more chanting!! I'm obsessed with getting my instructor to record herself (my BFITWWW and the Instructorm we will call her Marie because that's her name are both very accomplished musicians and I think they have both had records out at least on the local "scene.") Anyway. I am trying not to come off as a total freak and stalker, but really, I want to chant all day everyday. I want to chant in the elevator, I want to "om" before my meetings, I want to answer the phone "Thank you for calling Th Resource Center, Shanti." And plus, I want to work on my "singing" so maybe my tone deafness will not be as apparent. A great day all over. Extra cardio (I even ran 100 paces during my walk today!) and I am still within my cals even though I had 3, yes 3, 100 cal 3 musketeers bars. O the irony. Abundance............
