Monday Didn’t Suck

Last night, my coworker Amy texted me to ask if I wanted to take a yoga class this morning.

She’s pretty anti-yoga, so I couldn’t turn her down. Plus, after the Brooklyn Half, I wanted some yoga. I was barely sore, but I knew it was a good idea. 

Yoga Shanti NYC

We went to Yoga Shanti, and the class was just the two of us. The instructor, Jodie, gave us lots of personal attention, and got me deeper into every single freaking pose. This is the second of these “open” classes I’ve taken, and they’re interesting. Although sometimes I think they move too slow for my liking, or that I’m not crazy about holding poses for so long, I still end up melting into my mat by savasana, so they’re still just fine by me. 

Varidesk Standing Desk

At work, my standing desk arrived today! The Varidesk people reached out to me to see if I wanted to review one. I’d been using a super-classy plyo desk once in a while, so this was a huge upgrade. I’ll do a more in-depth review soon but I like it already, though it’s a bit of an adjustment. What I love the most so far is that it’s completely adjustable, so if I want to sit, I can lower it. My lower back hurt a little, but I feel like it must be one of those things where it hurts in the short-term getting adjusted, but makes things hurt so much less in the long term.

I worked late to get caught up on some stuff and then Ms. Jen and I met up for a little walking date with our pups.

Oh, and I decided to do a Hamptons share and another long weekend away today, so Monday didn’t suck at all today.

And I’m going to work out like a ninja tomorrow. I’m currently brainstorming how to dress for that. I don’t think sparkly headbands count.

How was your Monday?
