Productivity, of a sort...

Nah, the writing is still floundering around, flopping helplessly in my head, HOWEVER, I did something I am proud of today. I signed up for a yoga class for this fall. This may not sound like a big deal, but it's a HUGE deal for me since fitness classes scare me - I have to meet/interact with people I don't know, while trying to feign coordination. *shudders* However, I'm working to get back into a healthy routine, and I took yoga years ago and it did wonders for my body. (What self-respecting 26 year old has a bum hip? Oh yes, that would be me, and it started at the ripe old age of 20.) Plus, I could really use a lesson in controlling stress and yoga is great for that. A mind/body makeover could do wonders for my writing--fingers crossed--I just have to drag myself kicking and screaming to that first class in two weeks without having a panic attack. I've already paid the money though and can't get a refund, so wish me luck! I'm sure I'll be here in no time:

That's definitely the way to do it. Pay your money, cannot escape. That picture makes me feel slightly nauseous.

I've taken pi/yo classes at my gym and they're pretty good. (pilates/yoga)
For me running is my "meditation" time where I've literally thought of my best plot work. As long as the trainer isn't too chatty it should be good.

JJ, I knew it was the only way I would go. It makes me nauseous too!

Kris, do I want to be a human pretzel? Hmm, rethinking the yoga class now...;)

Andrew, I did a "yogalates" class too and it was fab. I don't think it will be helpful for the story plotting, but hopefully just for clearing my mind. I can't run these days, but walking helps with thinking through my plot.
