Day 17: Out of the Closet

Today was 5pm up at Summerlin with fantastic Frank. I had spent all day cleaning the house like a mad woman. I just had so much energy I didn't know what to do with it so I was scrubbing, mopping, dusting etc. At one point my daughter said "mom, stop cleaning already!"
Once I got to yoga the hot room felt good. At first. Somewhere in the middle of the standing series I became very aware of the girl next to me having a grand 'ol struggle. She was at the point where she was just totally overheated and breathing heavily in and out through the mouth not nose. I went from feeling totally sorry for her and trying to give her energy to thinking "crap, it is pretty hot in here right now!" "Maybe more humid." "My God I feel like my skin is on fire!" "Your sex is on fire! Oh, Kings of Leon, great song.....oh boy, now that's going to be stuck in my head!"
And she's off! Michelle's brain is out the door and wandering around again! I lost my focus and by the time we hit the ground I was struggling myself. I muddled my way through the spine series and looked like a tortured boot camp survivor for the remaining postures.
Staggering out to the front desk for a zico after class I tried to return the lock I borrowed. Instructor Mark was at the front desk and looked curiously at the little key. "Oh, you want the whole lock, not just the key. Sorry, total yoga brain right now" I said a little sheepishly. I headed back to the locker room, flip flops wet and squishy thinking "dang, when did Frank get so hard? And he's still so darn nice about it!"
About 20 mins later, showered, dried and dressed I started to head out. Instructor Misha, who had just rocked out class in the front row a few yogi's down from me was at the front desk. "Where is your yoga crush tonight" she asked with a grin on her face. Busted! "Oh, you read my blog!"
I've never been completely anonymous, but not many Las Vegas yogi's really stumbled across my blog at first. Slowly, it's been happening and now.....I'm totally out of the closet! :)


  1. And one day soon you will have your yoga crush comming up to you, saying, "Nice blog you have!" ;)

    Sometimes it takes so little to move a great strong practice into a mess in the head and the body.

  2. AHappyYogi~ Oh, can you imagine my yoga crush coming up and saying "so, is your yoga crush here tonight". awkward!!!! :)

  3. Haha, that's why I don't mention my yoga crush on here.. SO FUNNY!! and i also hate when i get in my head like that. i've been working on that self control and just worrying about myself. when someone breathes like that and freaks out, it kinda makes you freak out!

  4. Cat~ It was strange how much her struggle affected me! I'll have to try harder to focus tonight. I was having a "sympathy struggle". :)
    My yoga crush finally said hi to me this past weekend, but I certainly can't blog about that now! LOL

  5. Aww man, I like reading about the yoga crush! Hopefully this isn't the end for him =)

  6. BUSSSTED... good thing I still get texts. ;)

  7. LOL -- I'm with J. Busted indeed!!!

    I think if your yoga crush comes up to you and asks, "So, is your yoga crush here tonight?" you should totally go for it and say, "YOU ARE MY YOGA CRUSH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" C'mon!!! You can do it. Be brave! :)

  8. Jen~ perhaps I'll do a "password protected" post someday about the crush! Hannah just breathe did that and had people email her blog email address for the password. It was pretty cool.
    J~ totally BUSSSTED!
    JoJo~ brave or crazy! He he. I finally got a chance to talk to him over the was a short conversation, but still! Like I said to Jen, perhaps a password protected post may be in order at some point!
