I think today is the day for trying something new for me. If I don't mix things up every once in awhile, then the deployment seems to drag, so to save my sanity I like to try new things.
I already take a spin class at the gym, but today I decided to take the yoga class that I had been saying I'd take for the last few months. I'd taken pilates in college and had done various yoga tapes before, so I thought I knew what I was getting into.
Um....not so much. I'd equate this yoga class as being as hard as my spin class. Of course now spin seems easier, because I've been doing it for awhile and maybe yoga will feel like that one of these days. Today however, I thought I was going to drop from doing yoga. I was sweaty, my muscles were shaking and I stretched muscles I didn't even know I had. My body hasn't bent like that since I took gymnastics when I was younger. It had its relaxing points, but it was challenging as well. I think I'm hooked.
My other new thing to try tonight, is a restaurant that I have yet to eat at since I've been in Italy. I've heard rave reviews about it and tonight I'm finally going to go with a big group. I've already looked at the menu and I have no idea what I want to get because there are so many good things on there. The ham and fresh pear stuffed ravioli though keeps getting my attention. I'll try to do a review sometime this weekend!
