What? That’s still fashion illustration! Right?!
Okay, so the back story on this is that I came home from work Thursday completely exhausted. All I wanted to do was curl up into a ball and snooze, maybe top that off with a hot chocolate
and Kahlua under the covers before bed. Instead, I dragged myself to hot yoga, fully expecting to have my ass handed to me on the mat. I had the best class! I felt so strong, I stretched things that I have not been able to reach in the last little while – yoga rocked my socks. Ever since getting injured this summer it’s been one thing after another, and last month I was told by a doctor that I needed to stop capoeira and running for a month. I didn’t take well to that. At all. But I’ve been forcing myself to listen to his advice (or face the wrath of my husband) and so instead I have been hitting the elliptical at the gym while hiding out in the women’s only section (does anyone else find this machine embarrassing? Like I am not hard-core enough to run?) and getting back to yoga. And damn it – it’s working! I’m starting to loosen up again. I can sit on my knees for the first time since August. And my abs are killing me.
Don’t get me wrong, I am fully intending to hit capoeira back full force come the start of the new year – I have a belt to earn next September. But for now, maybe I needed to hit the yoga mat again for a little while. I came home on a total endorphin rush and actually started looking for dancers to paint, something in the hip hop style. I found a set of images that I’ll hopefully do something with soon. But then I found this image. And it came together so fast. So there you be. Have a wonderful weekend, don’t let it get too stressful for you. Or contact me and we can go on a yoga date together, hah.
