Yesterday, I did crow (not ATE crow, DID crow)

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Crow: The yoga pose where you place your arms at a 90 degree angle, then prop your knees up on your elbows, then eventually lift your body up so that you are balanced on your arms! (and gee, I balanced for at LEAST 2 seconds) But I did it. I did it. I did it.

Also (in an even more monumental event), driving to yoga, I thought, "maybe today I'll do pigeon." Then I thought - "now why would I do pigeon when it hurts my knees the way that it does? I DON'T think I'll do pigeon."

Why is this monumental? Because I can't ever remember in my life opting for something that is good for my body. Normally, I fight through, push even harder, keep on, hang in . . . no one can tell me I'm not going to/can't do anything. And to back off and accept that sometimes, I have to listen to my body and do the right thing? Wow -- for me, that's big.

Just for a minute - let's expand that thought - doing something right and good for my body - gee, like not eating the donut? like not having 2 bagels for breakfast? Listening to my body and CHOOSING the right thing?

This could be the start of something really really big.
