Sturdy like a lobster

Long yoga class today (long in stretchy, not duration). I think we went through about eleventy billion poses in the 45 minutes. I wasn’t really a fan of this; it takes me a little bit to settle into the stretches and find where I’m comfy and sort out my body, so I felt really rushed and probably didn’t get as much out of it as I could have. I was right in front, looking into the mirror; doing some of the positions I looked across the way and observed myself being very solid and strong-looking. I will never look like some willowy yoga chick, but I’m quite sturdy. :) (Perhaps this is to my detriment; sometimes I feel like I’m brute-forcing my way through some poses…)

Tomorrow there’s a Pilates class. I’m curious about it, but I’m also starting to feel like I’m spending bigger and bigger chunks of my workdays at the gym. Obviously I stay later to make up the time, but I’m already supposed to lift weights in the morning and spending another 45 minutes away from my desk probably isn’t a good idea.

Scale-Less August is nearly over. It’s relaxed my brain quite a bit to detach from that number at my feet, but I wonder if it’s changed at all. My guess is that it hasn’t, even though I haven’t been running much lately, but I’m a pretty data-oriented person and I’m curious!
