When the Student is Ready....
The teacher will appear.
Weird thing yesterday.
The biggest bummer to me about our Y closing was losing my yoga instructor. Even though I haven't been in yoga for awhile, I loved her. I was going to leave a note at the Y for her, saying "when you land some place, let me know where, so I can take classes from you".
So I walked into the Fancy Workout Place for my first workout since joining, and who was standing there at the desk, waiting to have a meeting?
Yes. My Yogi.
"are you teaching here now?!?!" I said?
She blinked, recognized me, and hugged me. "WHERE have you BEEN?" She asked.
"I fell off the wagon. And then I ate it".
So...she was there having a meeting about teaching her fitness yoga at The Fancy Club. YAY!
AND...what I am looking at as a good omen...in the locker room I had a lovely encounter with a fellow Big Lady. In fact, she recently lost TWO HUNDRED POUNDS after gastric bypass surgery. We broke with locker room etiquette and chatted a bit.
Within ten minutes of entering the building, I had two really nice, affirming encounters. As I said..I'm taking that as a good omen.
Also a good omen is that I arrived at 5:15 on a weekday, found the parking lot FUUUULLLLL, and found the gym NOT CROWDED. Jumped right on the elliptical. Plenty of machines, plenty of room.
It's good for a fat lady to be able to hop on the elliptical and do 30 minutes, right? Cuz I can.
New computer arrived. Wheeee! Can't wait to get it home and work with it. They didn't send the program transfer program I ordered, however. Boo hiss.
back to the gym tonight after work. Gotta have more stickers in my book to show the dr next week....
