Day 8/30: Drained


"The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea."

(I first saw that quote a few years ago, I think in a surfing-related context, and I've seen it a million places lately, and I love it to no end. It's by Karen Blixen, aka Isak Dinesen. I will try not to hold the "Out of Africa" movie against her, although it bored me to tears in high school. After reading a little more about her, maybe I should give it another shot. She had quite the interesting life!)

I didn't practice last night, kind of a letdown after my double Sunday. Had a relaxing dinner and a movie with the boyfriend instead (can you believe this was the first time I've seen "Say Anything"? I swear I was alive in the ’80s). I hardly drank water at all yesterday and last night, and I've been paying for it by feeling like absolute crap. Lesson learned and I am guzzling today!

So I'm two classes behind in my 30-day challenge. I'm looking forward to 1) not missing any more, and 2) a few more doubles, maybe just for fun!


  1. I like the quote! It seems very appropriate for a yoga practice:)
    You can do it Catherine!
    I decided yesterday I would do a double today just for the hell of it, halfway through class this morning I thought maybe I won't, but I'd already told my teacher and he then decided to announce it to the entire class, so I guess I'm going to the 5:45pm class tonight!

  2. Isn't it funny how sometimes gentle peer pressure works out for the best? :) Have fun tonight!

  3. 1) Definitely give Isak Dinesen a second look. She's worth reading.
    2) Have a good second class.
    3) ^__^

  4. Love the salty quote ;) Yes, you can do it!!!

  5. Awww, you ladies are too sweet. :)
