Day 18

It's almost time for bed, but I did not want to miss documenting Day 18!

The weather has been amazing! I know the word 'amazing' is completely over-used, but I cannot find another word to describe it, except for maybe: awesome, perfect, delicious, hmmmm?

I slept with the A.C. off (for the first time in over 6 months) and the windows OPEN. I definitely slept the entire night through. I was in some sort of peaceful trance. I think I often wake up in the middle of the night because when my AC kicks on it is super loud. I even slept until almost 9, which is late for me!

I enjoyed another beautiful walk on the trail, but went further down this time by parking at Target instead. I walked across the long bridge over the gulf and the wind was fierce! It was actually hurting my ear and my hands were numb from the cold. LOVED IT!

After, I went to 11:30 yoga and the instructor was back from her yoga philosophy course, which made me incredibly happy because she rocks!
Honestly, I am finding my forward folds becoming deeper! I never thought it could happen for me, but in staff pose when we forward fold, I am not just a hunched over freak anymore! And the more important part: it is actually starting to feel good to forward fold since I am getting the stretch out of it!! I love progress.

I was feeling so great mid-afternoon because I had successfully gone on a nice, cool walk, completed an hour of satisfying yoga, and THEN a repeat of Kris Carr's Crazy, Sexy, Cancer was on TLC! I own the DVD and have seen it numerous times, but I had to watch! She is a complete inspiration and whenever I watch it, I feel inspired to be great. And she is just gorgeous in all aspects. I love her message for life. I think everyone should watch her documentary.

Around 2, the sun was shining, but the temperature was in the 60's, so I literally just sat in the middle of my balcony/porch and painted my toes...

It was just that kind of day...


On Friday, my brother turned 30! In celebration, we got together at my Mom and step-dad's temporary apartment (long story) for dinner and cake!

Pretty much one of the only pictures of my brother and I in existence as adults. We're not very touchy-feely kind of siblings. I think we've probably hugged twice in our entire lives! hahah

For tomorrow, there is a lecture on sepsis...!

YAY! Kris and Crazy Sexy Cancer rock!! Whoohoo! :)

My bro and I are the same way, he is 5 years older then I am and my sis is 3 year younger, for some reason I hug my sis but it's so awkward when my bro kisses or hugs me. LOL! :)

BTW--he kisses me on the that didn't sound right when I re-read it! We aren't THAT kind of fam!!

haha Lauren! My brother is 5 years old than me, too. It also does not help that he was mean to me growing up lol. My sister who is 10 years older though, completely different story!

Sounds like a really good day! I must confess I had a yoga fail yesterday. I guess I kind messed up the challenge but I'm going to continue onward tonight! :(
