That Avenue

Got home from Zumba at 9:20 p.m. Spent a portion of class eyeballing myself in the mirror and wondering how I arrived at plump again. It's not the first time and it won't be the last time for musings of that sort.

When my mind goes down that avenue, I also feel like a bit of an ingrate because I love to feel my body in motion and I'm doing that -- plump or not.

Saw Dianne Bondy repost the situation below on Instagram and it totally resonated.

When I went to the yoga event on Saturday, I was pretty sure that they'd be taking pictures and when I saw the camera on a tripod and a remote control, I cringed. Later on when I saw a picture on Instagram, I studied my image. I like the picture.We are all in action -- doing variations of a pose. I also like that it is not a staged picture. I don't like that I'm plump. However, I enjoyed the class. I was able to do almost everything. I laughed. I sang. I got high off of being around good people...

  1. I like the light behind you in the photo, like you are at the epicenter of something glowing and important.

  2. Yoga on horses:

  3. Yes, I am totally illuminated. 😊

    Also, I follow Horse Yoga Girl on Instagram. I can safely say that I will not be doing yoga on a horse.

    I enjoy seeing yogis who have so much control and it'll be interesting to see who discovers the next yoga hybrid. Part of me thinks horse yoga is risky but I take my own risks...
