Bye Bye, Baby! Momma Going To Hot Yoga!

Lasik Update! My vision continues to get better and better, though it's still not there yet. Night driving is still a little rough with the halo effect; vision is not yet crystal clear and I wonder— what if one eye is better than the other?... I guess it must have to be significant for it to matter; my eyes don't need lubricating drops nearly as frequently, which is nice, and, in fact, I think wetting them sometimes makes them more dry, if that makes any sense... The flood of liquid almost dries them out after it's gone.

Today I woke up lightly feeling some of my abs from last night— went to my first hot yoga class in years and first time I did yoga since pregnant. It's not the exact same type I've done in the past (90-95degF) but hotter (100-105degF). Let me tell you, it kicked my A. The class was 1.5 hours and I barely made it passed one hour. Granted, though, it was an evening class and by evening I have most, if not all, the energy sucked out of me. But I was really looking forward to this class all week and really wanted to go. Ever since my Lasik procedure, for some reason, I've actually, finally felt weak. I was nauseous the first days after the procedure and think that's what might have gotten me.

Anywho, like I said, I woke up lightly feeling my abs which was nice. Huh, I have muscle (sort) of in my mid-section. Then, as the day progressed, my muscles started feeling it. There's been a lag in soreness but it's coming and here :> And I'm happy about it. It's probably good if I work on stretching it out but I doubt I will really try. I must be getting old, as I have not much desire to put myself in pain really anymore. I was bummed about disappointing the teacher and not lasting the full hour and a half but I'm looking forward to going again this weekend. It took me about a year to get decent at yoga and I believe I can do it again. I doubt, however, this time around I'd be able to do it so quickly— not necessarily because of the age-excuse but because of the time one.

It was weird, I have to admit, to go to a yoga class, leaving Nui Nui behind. Work is one thing, yoga is another. But is it? I need to work to live but need (in the long run) to work out to live (healthy) as well. Or, at least that's what I tell myself and why I gave permission to myself to go out without Nui Nui. Now that I write this, I think this is the first time I'm actually taking time to myself since Nui Nui was born. Huh, that's interesting... #revelation #guilt #goodsore

Another revelation of the day... I think Nui Nui probably knows more than 100 words. I'm not one of those word-count savants but, see, she has this book called First 100 Words and she knows almost all of them and I know she knows way beyond just those words. I find that fascinating... then again, everything about Nui Nui is :>

I've been in a video phase lately and here's the latest of the Parenting Topic Series. Let's just say, Parting is such sweet sorrow... and, I'm guilty again for doing something I never thought I'd do as a parent.

They say you have to do things for yourself. They call it self-care. What do you for YOURself? Comment below, we'd love to hear!

  1. I totally agree with you, it is so hard to take your precious time with your babes to do something! Always feel guilty! I started running in the mornings, which means lil m has to be at daycare 1 more hour :( but you're right.. we need it for our mind and our health! xoxo
