Last night, I accidentally fell asleep with Indiana snuggling in bed next to me. Indiana has just been so sweet lately, and his newfound inclination to curl up next to me and not move the entire night is both adorable and sort of…not good for my sleep habits. I love how he takes this position of guard dog at the edge of the bed and seems to me watching the door all night, especially because he won’t leave his post. (And for a dog like Indiana, staying in one place fore more than a few minutes is kind of a big deal.) What I do not love is how he gets scoots closer and closer to me as the night wears on, pushing me closer toward Eric, because before I know it, I feel like I’m trapped in a really warm hairy sandwich. (Though Eric would argue that I am warmer and have more hair than either of them, and he’d probably be right.) Last night, after shoving Indiana repeatedly back toward the edge of the bed, I finally realized he wasn’t going to budge, so I finally just picked him up and put him between Eric and me and then moved over toward the edge of the bed so I could have some space. Indiana seemed to like his new spot just fine. But tonight, he’s going back to his crate, because as much as I love him, he’s really cramping my sleep style.
Thanks to last night’s snuggle struggle, I didn’t wake up feeling as refreshed as I would have liked this morning. Luckily, by the time I got to work, my coffee had kicked in and I went on to have a full and productive day. I got home and decided to disconnect from my day with yoga before I did anything else.
I tried a new-to-me podcast from Three Dog Yoga: 60-minute POWER. It was my favorite class from them thus far; it had all my favorite poses and lots of heart openers, which was perfect for my February challenge. Unfortunately, though, it wouldn’t stream past about minute 42. I might try to download it and see if that solves the problem, because I just loved the class. But for tonight, I improvised for the last 15 minutes, adding on bridge, wheel, dolphin, pigeon, a couple extra chair twists, and then some final spinal twists and Savasana. It felt really great.
Also, I think I accidentally may have slipped into crow pose tonight? She said to take crow, and I was feeling feisty, so I started to lean forward, like, joking kind of, and then I think maybe I just went ahead and did it for a few seconds?! But when I tried to replicate it, I totally collapsed to the ground in a heap so I’m not going to count that one.
Dinner tonight was chipotle pork cheeseburgers.
These were good, but a little mild for my taste, so I added a bit more adobo sauce on top. That plus the avocado and Muenster cheese was a winning combination.
I’m going to try to get to bed early tonight! Have a good night!
