Yoga practice 4-6-10
blaux
I just kicked, in correct form, up into  handstand in the middle of the room for the first time.  I can totally do a bad handstand by kicking up with my legs, but have never kicked up from my core, bringing my hips up first, any where else but at the wall.  I wasn't even working up to a middle of the room handstand, i was sort of playing with it without even knowing it.  But i knew where i was going once i was up in the air and for the first time in a long time i was afraid of going over the top.  Maybe because all of the time i've spent kicking up to a wall I was unsure of the power in my core and also unsure of how to use the power in my core so i ended up going too hard in order to get up and I'm used to going over the top when kicking from my core.  So i got up and i really felt like here i am and my energy is going up.  and then i started to let it go down and i came out of it.  I love to go to class and have been resistant to a personal practice because when i think about it it seems like i just don't do the same level of work when I'm in a room alone.  But after experiencing something like this it almost makes me feel like i want to stay out of class because of the way my attention addiction is triggered when i do something right and am asked to demonstrate.  But where better to work on that than in a yoga class.  And i must admit that i was disappointed and discouraged last night after not making any big break through for a while, thinking that maybe those are very few and far between.  But then i did the work and what do you know?  Right now I'm so happy and reassured that i am pointed in the right direction.

Writer's Block: Such a Chore
blaux
What's your least favorite chore?

cleaning the bathroom.
Our bathroom is old and in need of an update so no matter how much it is cleaned it never really feels clean.
And also, because i now live with a boy i have come to know new levels of disgusting. I don't understand how it can be so difficult to comprehend the concept that pee goes in the toilet.

What was the last thing you "got away with?"

Neglecting to clean the cat box for two weeks.
There have been two occasions in the past when I've let it go for a while and then ad to deal with not only the cat box but also little surprises around the house.
This time, poor cats, they kept it all in and around their box.
