Man, I can TASTE THE FINISH LINE. Which, I might add, would be a fantastic semi-ironic catch-phrase for a sports drink. PowerCrusherAdeGator: TASTE THE FINISH LINE.
I was telling Stacy last night that, compared to where I started, this change in my body (and mind, spirit) seems more significant than the three months of Teacher Training. Admitted, when I went to TT, I had been doing yoga almost every day for 6 months, so I was in fightin' shape before I started, whereas with this - I was on the, "all meat & bread, all fried, all the time" diet before I started, so the comparison isn't really fair.
Still, I can't help but be stunned at how much you can really change yourself in how short a time. All you have to do is commit to something crazy. I look at the changes that a single, measly month has brought and think - not only am I feeling wonderful and thin and young and bright, but my attitude about life and the world around me has changed quite a bit. I find myself being less negative, less snarky, less critical, and less concerned with being "right". I find myself walking more slowly, smelling the morning grass and the flowers on the air of spring. I'm paying attention. What an extraordinary gift! And, really - all things considered.... what a cheap price to pay for it.
