New Year's Day - 2008

So far, so good on the resolutions!

I started my new year with a fabulous New Year’s Day Yoga class – “Jump Start Your New Year With Yoga” – the class description said “Wring out the old and breathe in the new” – what a great way to welcome the year! In addition to the 2 hour workshop, I did 20 minutes of “legs up the wall” - very relaxing and rejuvenating!

I did very well on all of the “diets” as well – yarn, fiber, and food! The yoga session also reinforced my last resolution – it was almost as though they’d read it! The centering at the beginning of the workshop addressed the very same issues!

I ended my New Years Celebration at the Tuesday knitting/spinning group. Only a few folks turned out, but it was great to get some knitting done! I completed the heel of my latest sock – and I’m ready to pick up for the gusset – wahoo! (The sock yarn is from my stash….just in case you’re wondering.) Hmmmm……I just realized that I need to add my sock project to Ravelry…..as well as the fingerless gloves I finished last week! Pictures will be forthcoming….the laptop is still crying its “death knell” and it’s a royal pain to put them on my desktop. Hopefully, the laptop will be restored to good health by the end of next weekend so I can get caught up on all the photos!

    What's the leg wally thing?

    You lie flat on your back with your rump against the wall and put your legs up the wall. It takes a lot of stress off your heart, clears out your legs, and will help prevent/reduce the chance of varicose veins. You can also do a variety of stretches while in this position - and, because the back is supported, it's less stressful on the back. This is a GREAT way to start or end your day...and perfect after a car or plane trip!

    I'm going to do that. How much time do I spend like that?

    You can get some benefit from as little as 5 minutes. I tend to do 10-20 minutes....and you don't have to stay in the same position for whole time. You can do bound-angle, tree pose, and various other yoga poses while you're there. Or, you can just bend your knees slightly when your legs get tired and then after a while, straighten them back up the wall.
