For those of you who didn't catch up with me earlier today, I was super motivated to workout after the downward spiral last week. So, at 5:30pm I leave the office, head to the gym, change clothes, use the restroom, attempt to wash my hands and....
Smash my finger into the soap dispenser. 
Yes, with enough force to break my nail in half, cause an immediate blood blister to form and blood oozing beneath the nail (graphic sorry). 
No, I was not angry and trying to smash innocent soap dispensers.
Really I'm just a klutz. This is something you will learn about me. 
I shrieked a little, the woman next to me looked over, saw the blood and didn't even ask if I was okay!! That is NOT the Southern charm I've been talking about lady.
 But then she definitely gave me strange looks when instead of washing it off I took about 5 pictures. 
"Oh don't worry lady, I am a blogger! Yea, a blogger! Its all for the sake of the blog! 
Oh wait, you weren't worried anyway, were you!"
I didn't actually say that. I just gave her a creepy look and told her I'm a vampire.
A vampire who puts Snoopy bandaids on her cuts. 
It was still throbbing, despite Lucy's smiling face on my thumb. 
But, I was determined for the Yolates class!
(yoga + pilates = yolates, for my slow learners...I still love you)
I'm slow too, in different ways.
This was my second time doing the class, which is actually called Centergy at my gym, but Yolates sounds so much cooler, doesn't it?
The first time, I looked much like a dying seagull, not a graceful swan; because not only am I klutzy, I am also very NON-flexible. However, this is something I'm trying to fix, especially because one day I think it would be cool to own a Yolates studio. Maybe I should learn how to do it first though, just a thought. 
Honestly, I'm just really drawn to the culture of it, which maybe explains why I wore this Eco Yoga shirt...
If I'm going to look like a dying seagull instead of a blooming lotus flower scorpion firefly downward dog, I should at least attempt to dress the part. 
I've honestly had this shirt forever, I got it at Whole Foods a couple years ago. 
Yes, guilty - I bought a shirt at Whole Foods while I supposed to be "grocery shopping." 
Doesn't everyone spend WAYYY too much money every time they step foot in Whole Foods or is that just me?? Between the salad bar, organic ice-cream, craft beer selection and natural beauty products, I'm done for. (Pssstt...Karen, hook me up with the employee discounts ;)
One day, don't you worry though, I will not only be dressed like a Yogi guru, but I'll be doing this!
Whose the dying seagull now?!

And Country Man will be doing this!
But, he won't grow his hair like that....

and maybe just maybe one day I won't be such a klutz. 

XOXO Love, your dying seagull yolates vampire


  1. I call yoga + pilates = piyo ... but hey, toe-may-toe toe-mah-toe.

  2. haha, I like piyo too! maybe we can invent some form of extreme yolates, and dub it #YOLO PIYO
