This is Embarrassing

Should I admit this? Not sure it will help boost my credentials as a fitness expert, but here goes . . . I got the Wii for Christmas . . . (yes, I'm a little behind the times.) and after playing with it for a couple of hours over the weekend I'm completely sore . . . from the Wii!!! This is terrible. What a slap of reality. I boxed my heart out and won all matches with knock-outs, played several sets of tennis, and threw as many 94 mile-an-hour pitches as I could. Who knew it was actual 'real' exercise? I'm just completely disgusted by the fact that I'm sore. I also got the Wii Fit and balance board and I am positively terrified to try the yoga poses. Here I am all proud of myself for being a certified yoga instructor. I fear what the Wii will tell me when it comes to my balance and postures. All I know so far is that it's time to start up P90X again and whip my butt (and more importantly by back) into fighting shape.

I know whenever I'm super pumped and excited about something new it's easy to over-do it without realizing it. It's hard to hold onto enthusiasm and awareness at the same time!

You don't have to be able to do a pose perfectly for your yoga students. In fact, if you aren't perfect, it sometimes puts those students at ease.

Heck, I wiggle like a willow tree in a big breeze anytime our class goes into any variation of tree, warrior III, Eagle, and forget Dancer, unless there is a wall nearby. That gives the student permission to be less than perfect too!
