Saturday night I went out with a guy from match, M. We need to pray to the dating gods, people, because I actually liked this one. He’s 27, an engineer for the Navy (he’s not in the Navy, though), lives in a nice little section of the city, and is going to grad school. And he’s funny. Definitely the best date I’ve had since starting this whole thing. I’m giving him until tomorrow before I forget about him.

Last night I went to my first ever yoga class. I’ve done some yoga at home, so it wasn’t my very first experience, but it was my very first experience doing it correctly. It was nice to have the teacher there to adjust me as needed. I have issues with not keeping my "shoulders in my shoulder sockets" and with not keeping my hips straight. And also with my balance apparently. The class is at a dance and gymnastics studio, not a yoga studio, so it’s interesting to see what else I might be able to take there. There were only 4 of us in the class, so it was really a steal for almost-private classes. Oh! And they cranked up the heat in there. So that was a whole new experience as well. I’ve got 9 more classes on my class card, and I am excited. I felt myself improving a little with the teacher’s help, so I’m excited to see how well I can do in 9 more weeks.

My aunt, uncle, and I have also started on the Weight Watchers points system thingy. I don’t want to drastically lose weight, but I do want to get in a healthier range. I lost a couple of pounds last week (even with eating my weight in sushi at the buffet). Between WW, yoga, and the gym I am very optimistic about meeting at least one more of my goals.


  1. Look at you - all self improvement and such! Way to go! I'll keep my fingers crossed for the Navy Engineer. Keep us posted.

  2. You did yoga!!! Do you know how happy and excited this makes me!? I'm so glad you enjoyed it and I can't wait to hear more about your experiences with it.

    And I'm praying to those dating gods for you right now. He sounds like a good guy!

  3. When I heard the word "Navy" I think of my favourite Simpsons line..
    "What do you think Smithers?"
    "I think women and seamen don't mix sir"
    "We know what you think"

    But then I'm immature.

    Good luck with the Navy Engineer. And with the weight loss. And with your yoga.

    Here you are doing all these new and fun things and here's me.. not.. doing.. them.
