This weekend was awesome! I had several new experiences and have started on some new goals. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s been going on.
1. I tried yoga for the first time.
And I’m still a little sore. I am not bendy at all. And I’m really not good at relaxing, especially when trying new things. But I found a Groupon for a local yoga studio and decided to try it out Saturday morning. I thought a few times about backing out and just going to Hobby Lobby or something, but I resolved to trying yoga. I enjoyed it and I’m trying to figure out when I can go again. Being a journalist doesn’t provide a regular schedule, so I have to plan week by week.
2. I went to the Arkansas State Capitol.
After my yoga class TK and I went to Little Rock. They keep the Capitol building open on Saturdays so you can just wander. It was pretty cool! I love how the different branches of government work, and the building was pretty too. Plus it was a beautiful day outside so we got to wander around the complex a bit. Love it!
We went to Whole Foods and – in a moment of spontaneity – purchased a horned melon. That was random! TK wasn’t feeling as adventurous when we got home to eat it, so I was alone on that one. It definitly had a strange texture and tasted like a cross between a lime and a banana. It wasn’t bad, but it felt like a lot of work and I don’t think I would spend that money on one again 🙂
So, this was kind of a mistake. I mean, I meant to sign up for a 5K, but I really thought I was signing up for one that was coming in November. Turns out I’m running a 5K in June instead! I’m doing the Color Me Rad run. I found a Groupon for it (which honestly contributed to my confusion – read your fine print, people!) and I started training today. We’ll see how this goes!
