Hopetocurl - thanks so much for the suggested yoga poses. I like your concept of "committing" to some poses on a regular basis. I think I'll borrow your idea!

ETA: I managed to get about an hour of yoga in tonight, despite some pretty heavy duty emotional upheaval from an unexpected visitor. Backbends = tears. I've heard this before, tonight I got to experience it firsthand.

The upside: it's crazily cathartic and I feel calm and at peace now. I need to remember this when things get to be too much and I feel like bailing on yoga, which is my Achilles heel as far as motivation goes these days.

We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names and each is a different color. But they all have to learn how to live in the same box. ~Anonymous
