One of my high school friends sent out an email to the troops asking if we were game for a friday night of hot yoga!
I had received similar emails from her before but was always hesitant to go. I was hesitant because I felt like I might be embarrased if I tried. I’m a young, healthy looking female. I was afraid to go, get tired (or loopy from the heat) and have to take a break. I feared what people might think, but now I’m starting to realize…who cares what people think??
I also looked up “hot yoga and lupus” on the internet and found many encouraging results. Hot yoga seems to loosen those stiff joints that lupus sufferers have to contend with. With me turning over a new leaf and making a commitment to being healthy, I think this would be a good step for me. Anyhow, if I don’t like hot yoga or it doesn’t agree with me, at least I would have tried it once.
Today is “family day”. I worked. I could have had the day off, but by working today it allows me to utilize the 7.5 hours that I worked and take time off at other times, times that I want to have off. I have already requested 3 hours off in early March for my doctor’s appointment. I plan to use a full 7.5 hours (if I’m allowed..!) on April 25th, which is the day of the good food festival! Mom and I (sometimes my sister) go the the good food festival every year. My mom really enjoys it and I do to. Hopefully I can get that day off.
Anyhow, at work today I spoke to my co-worker and she happens to be a current member of that gym right beside my office. Yup, that one that gave me lotsa problems when I had to cancel. Apparently they have a really intriguing deal. $175 down, then $14 a month or something like that. It almost makes me wonder if I should give them a try again. It’d be nice to have a workout buddy to encourage you. Well, I’ll have to go back to the gym and take a look as I haven’t been there for a while. It may look different and not so “factory like” as it did a number of years ago. We’ll see!
Time to setup Mr. Bellco the dialysis machine. I’m tired from working all day, then coming home to study math. Tomorrow is business concepts class. I hope we get our “group” assignments back, and I hope “we” did well!
