Today in yoga I managed to do one "downward dog." Just one, before I had to start babying my wrist again. But hey, that's progress from three days ago! Today's workout, 30 Days of Yoga, day 5, was a fairly short one, with several warrior poses. I could do them! I thought about the significance of that. I am a warrior. I am fighting for my health, my strength, my very energy and quality of life.
According to Google Translate, Hangaku Gozen (see picture at left) means "half the morning." I think that's cool, the way it fits into my morning routine, which I am trying to narrow down to only half the morning.
The following quote applies to my battle for fitness:
It's not easy changing habits and health at my age, but it is the right thing to do for myself and possibly for my family.
― Cassandra Clare,
The light will shine brighter if the glass that contains it is clean and either unbroken or repaired. I'm at repair stage myself. If you're reading this and you're young, please don't let yourself get into such a state of disrepair before you start mending and cleaning. This is not the easy way, but I am a Warrior.
