Three Things Thursday, not Friday

1.  I had a horrible migraine yesterday.  Like, the type where you wake up and wish you could immediately hibernate for a few months.  Needless to say, I did not get in any workouts yesterday, or even do chores.  I was lucky enough to be able to medicate myself and get the kids to the library.  By afternoon I was feeling a bit better, but I didn't feel normal until this morning.  I can honestly say though that all of the pushing myself through bitchin' workouts gave me the ability to push through the pain pretty well.  I'm so grateful for that, it let my kids have a good day!

2.  I got my fabric in the mail yesterday, and it's all so super duper adorable!  Last night I set out my workout outfit for today, and I had my daughter pick a matching headband fabric for me to make a tester.  You know, for quality control and all.  Not simply because I love to have new cute stuff, no that's not it.  Anyway, she picked my least favorite fabric and I just went with it.  Turns out she's a genius and it was adorable and oh-so comfy.  I'll go through and make testers of each one, cut all of the rest, and then start sewing for the shop.  Once I have a good stash of about 5-10 of each, I'll be up and running!  Hehe, running, get it?  Yep, I just did that.

You like?  I know I do!

3.  I am a doofus.  I'm sure that most of you know this by now, but sometimes I still surprise myself.  My doofus moment of the day had already happened before 10am.  I have been planning for the weekly Pilates class since it was so awesome last time.  But I start out this morning and immediately realize that we'd be late.  I want it badly though, and I get us all there with my New Jersey driving skills, and only 5 minutes into class.  I walk in to find a different teacher and some mellow music.  Interesting.  I set up quietly and quickly, and she says down dog.  More interesting.  Then she starts a Sun Salutation.  Oops.  Turns out today is Thursday, not Friday.  I'm awesome.  So I begin to mentally make the switch.  It's moving pretty fast though.  There are moves I've not done in a while.  But it was awwwwwesome.  I'm feeling it.  She announces we're doing headstands "again".  Doh.  I haven't done these ever, and my stupidly competitive side is angry that I'll start out behind.  But the planets aligned and I popped into a beautiful headstand on my first try, then did it three more times!  Only person in class.  My head is swelling both from the blood rush and from an ego boost.  Calm down Trinity, this is yoga, not a 5k.  Calm, then blissssssssss.  Turns out, I was in an Intermediate Power Vinyasa Yoga class.  Had I known, I would've been intimidated.  But you better bet I'll be back next week, assuming I know what the hell day of the week it is!

I was quickly knocked down to earth once I turned on the Olympics and started watching the lady volleyball players.  Those girls are jumping balls of sexy muscle.  If I can be half as awesome as them in my lifetime, I'll be a happy person.  Even more awesome--tomorrow begins track and field!  Are you loving the Olympics so far?  What are you looking forward to?  Have a happy Thursday!
