I had a hard time this morning. I had a hard time getting out of bed. I had a hard time lifting my weights. I had a hard time eating breakfast (which I poured all down my front when I went to put my backpack in the car). I started today off with a lot of "hard times", but then I looked in the mirror, flexed my (flabby) arm and lo and behold:

I HAVE LITTLE BABY MUSCLES GROWING! After only two weeks (if you remember back to my post earlier this week and the photo I took you will as amazed at this discovery as I am)! I also got on the scale and even with my lady time coming I'm keeping my weight under control (and under 130 lbs). Even with everything going wrong I felt really right.

We are taking the day off from the gym tomorrow and instead doing our very first yoga class (at Jai Dee Yoga). I've heard so many wonderful things about the practice and if anyone in the world needs some time to cool down and let go of some stress then I'm definitely on that list. I've been given a lot of tips and tricks to make it as enjoyable and whatnot as possible, but when it all comes down to it I'm just excited to try it.

Also on the weekend's plans is a raw "cooking" class at Whole Foods. I've been looking forward to going to one of these for ages. I love making raw foods but I don't know much about it other than throwing salad ingredients in a bowl (and honestly, I usually cook at least some of the toppings). This should be quite the learning experience and a weekend full of firsts. Huzzah!
