Day 4 - 26 Days to 25

Well, hello again!

I slept at my mom's place last night as we left the Sedar quite late and it was easier to stay up north. It was nice to get a full night's sleep with no cat interruption (I slept til 11:00am!) but I'm happy to be home once more.

Yesterday I definitely did my fair share of eating at my Passover Sedar. I honestly didn't mind and didn't feel guilty about eating any of it. 

What I did feel guilty about was that I lost my Metropass. Three days into the month. 

Fuck.

The transit system has no way of replacing my pass or helping me out in any way and because of that, I've been feeling pretty stupid and I've been emotionally beating myself up a little bit because of it.

"Why did you put it in your back pocket, when you know it could easily fall out?"

"Don't you know how expensive these things are?"

"God, you lose everything."

Basically, super unhelpful stuff that doesn't get me anywhere, let alone a new Metropass. 

I know that at the end of the day, it doesn't really matter. I know that I can afford a new pass (and that I'm lucky that I'm able to do so). I know that this has happened to many friends of mine and so I'm hardly the only one that's gone through this. But still... it sucks.

I try to be organized, but I do find it difficult. Luckily, I have Monday off as well, and I have no plans (I'm so social!). The apartment is officially getting a makeover.

Anyway, enough complaining, let's get on to the workout!

REST DAY! God, I needed this video so badly. It felt soooo nice to unwind my muscles and just let them relax. There's really not too much to say about it other than it made me feel really good and ready for tomorrow's more high-intensity workout.

When I saw this video come up, I pretty much thought I wouldn't even bother doing it. I used to do gymnastics in the past, so head/handstands are nothing new to me, but it's been many years and I don't really have a free wall to use as a balance, so I thought I would sit this one out. Instead, I pushed away a table, took down some art off the wall, put my yoga mat against the wall and sucked it up.

It was so much fun. 

As I said, I haven't done this kind of stuff in years but it really brought back a fun, youthful excitement that I remember feeling when I used to go to gymnastics classes. I got back into the swing of things pretty easily and I was even able to balance without the wall for a little bit. Obviously, this is something that I will have to build up again, but considering how much I enjoyed doing it, I can easily see myself taking the time to keep working on it.

Alright, it's dinner time for me now which means ALL THE PASSOVER LEFTOVERS!!!!! So much yum, and then since I know I'll be craving something sweet after dinner, I'm going to make a yogurt/raspberry/chocolate chip parfait in lieu of spending my hard earned dollars on two guys named Ben and Jerry.

Later days!
