Power Yoga + Hockey

My pleasant Saturday not only included shopping. I also worked out and spent the evening with friends!

I have a YMCA membership again!

Do you know what that means?

Epic happiness.

Yesterday, Saturday, December 17, I went to Power Yoga for the first time in six(ish) months.

In that time, I had not performed a single asana or salutation. Add to that the fact that I have not seriously exercised since Thanksgiving and welcome to my Sunday morning.

I am so sore.

During practice, my hips were too tight to go deep in any twist or pigeon (and I love pigeon). My shoulders and arms were too weak to do a full vinyasa. I cheated and put my knees on the ground every time. No up-dog, just cobra.

I am surprised at how well I did, though. The last time I went to Power Yoga, I did not do well. I figured after my hiatus that I would not be able to keep up with the class whom I recognized as regular Power Yoga people.

But I did.

Now, in all honesty, I had to hang out in Child’s Pose a few times, and none of my poses were as perfect as they used to be (see above photo – That is a nice Downward Dog Pose).

After Yoga, I went shopping. Remember?

And then Husband and I went to dinner with friends!

We went to P.F. Chang’s and had a GREAT server. She was awesome, but busy, so other people brought us our food and made our drinks… incorrectly.

I felt like one of those people who complained at restaurants about everything. I used to be a server and bartender, and I acted like those people who drove me nuts. I just felt awful about it.

However, when everything was correct, our food was awesome. I ate Orange Shrimp for the first time.

So good.

And we ate too much.

After dinner, we went to a Wichita Thunder hockey game! I have not been to a hockey game since I was about 13.

Thunder won 3-0! And I saw about four fights because that’s what boys do when they get frustrated.

They hit each other.

If it weren’t for hecklers, I would have enjoyed the game so much more. (The profanity and loud screaming was mildly annoying, but I was surrounded my hockey fans. Husband and his friend controlled themselves well, I thought!)

Note: Don’t get me wrong. I do not usually care about profanity, but screaming it in an arena full of child hockey fans doesn’t set well with me. They repeat EVERYTHING they hear.

Everything.

Overall, I had a really great Saturday! Even the late night cleaning I did when we got home!

This girl vacuums at midnight :)

Hockey fan? I used to be obsessed, but now I just enjoyed watching the game and making Husband explain what was going on. He does the same thing with UFC. “What’s a Kimura?”

Hope you have a lovely Sunday!
