Why I Hold On

It's been a little while since I last posted about yoga class. Yes, I am still participating in class and next month will be the sixth month. This evening I came to a realization about a previous question that I had posted here back in April when I started about why people would ever want to exercise. I struggled greatly in class last evening because my body has been sore from lack of sleep, moves, bad seating at my computer desk and the like. Almost every pose was painful.

In the mist of the pain, I had a moment of clarity that allowed me to see that the joy of yoga or exercise is not on the days when we find it easy; rather, the days when it is the hardest and we continue on through the pain to find ourselves with renewed energy at the end. In the middle of a pose that is stretching every part of your body, it is hard to see the end, but when the instructor calls "Relieve," the tension and pain gives way to a relaxation and rejuvenation.

The Yogurt Flavors: Chocolate Decadence, World Class Vanilla, Cappuccino, Maple Nut, Banana and Boysenberry.

This weekend we have our Pecan Pies on special for $14.99 (regularly $19.99). This is also the last few days of our monthly special: Chocolate Loaves are $14.99 (regularly $19.99).

Saturday Distraction: What Is Your German Name?

Your German Name is:

Ludwig Lars
Well, I do like pretzels.


Let us know what your German name is by leaving us a comment. I hope that everyone has a wonderful weekend and enjoys their time off from work and school.

Optional Brain Teaser: (I came across this one yesterday from a site some of you may know.) Two cars placed back to back each drive forward and travel 8 miles. They then both turn left and travel another 6 miles each. How far apart are they when they come to a stop?

a. Right next to each other.
b. 32 km
c. 48 km
d. 14 miles
e. What?

Hint: Geometry Rocks! Please don't post the answer.

I have a bizarre question, which shines a bright light on a personality that tends towards OCD in certain ways.

When taking one of those "What is Your _____ Name" tests, how do you decide what name to put in? Just your first name? Your whole name? What if you go by your middle name or a nickname? What if Mia Katja isn't my REAL German name because I didn't do it right?!?!?!?
