Holy smokes, these are the poster children of all that is Valentine candy deliciousness. What the H Mars Corp? My head is just peeking out of the medical woods and I really should not be eating these. But I did--thirteen to be exact. And I ate them with pretzels (two per salty twist)....oh my mouth it watering all over again.
Unfortunately, I felt pretty crappy afterwards. Like I could see the nurse tsk tsk-ing me in my mind's eye. Ugh, how terrible it is to know one's personal limitations. So grown-up. Gross.
But look at how pretty they are:

It's okay, they were worth the brief bout of tummy twirls. I rewarded myself for surviving the m&m fever with some flavorful green beans and an hour of yoga.
Speaking of yoga...that's something else I survived today. I hurt my back a couple of weeks ago and I am convinced it didn't get worse because I've been practicing daily yoga. This last weekend was too much though, and I have been in excruciating pain for 3 days. Guess the accident in my car Friday night didn't help either. I didn't even go to class over the weekend! But after standing most of the day at work (with my monitors tilted back like a super-nerd) I decided to brave it.
I'm pretty sure I sounded like someone stepped on a puppy a few times, but I made it. The last movement involved from transitioning out of cobra into triangle in one fluid motion. In this condition I wouldn't say I resembled anything fluid or graceful, but I definitely breathed through the pain. I guess now I understand why lamaze works for pregnant ladies!

I still felt really good and centered after class though, so even if I can't walk in the morning my chakras are in good shape. Here's hoping tomorrow is an even better day than today!
