At lunch time today, I did a four mile walking video, and it felt really good. I am getting better at working hard but still breathing through my nose. It was great to see my heart rate hovering around 80% and still be able to maintain it. There were a few times when I had to take a deep mouth breath, but not that many. What I really like is that I’m learning to try new things without being terribly afraid of them. Or at least, not afraid to the point that I don’t try. I like that!The rest of the day was pretty uneventful. Lots of stuff going on at work, but nothing over the top. Michael had a great day and we are getting ready to go in the chamber before bed. Sometimes, it feels like things are coming together and I can actually relax a little. I don’t know if it will actually happen, but it’s a nice feeling. Plus, tomorrow is the ten week mark. I’m really looking forward to seeing the progress pictures, and just being proud of myself for making it through. I am still doing this!

Day 70 - Friday Night Treat
I know everyone loves Fridays, but I especially do. Friday means Friday Night Yoga. After a really long week, you would expect a class at 5:30 on Friday afternoon to be empty. Not this class! Every time I’ve been, it’s been really crowded. The classes on Mon and Web are definitely harder, but I still get an incredible workout on Fridays. I think what makes the difference is that she has such a strong emphasis on stretching at the end of the class. When I leave, I feel like all my muscles have been worked hard, and then turned into wet noodles. I leave relaxed and happy. To me, that is absolutely priceless.
