Archie Bunker Goes To Yoga

{source}

So I bought this $59 unlimited month pass to Sanctuary Yoga in the Gulch. I went for the first time last Sunday & the instructor, Dawn Cunningham, recommended I try her Thursday Candlelight Flow class from 7:15-8:30pm. I told her the time didn't really work for me, when would I eat dinner, etc. She said as long as I eat around 5:00-5:15, I'd be good.

I get home from work today around 5:00 & basically immediately eat dinner. I didn't really plan well for this, so the only thing I had in the house to eat was a Trader Joe's palak paneer frozen Indian dinner & garlic naan. I figured, it's a small amount of food, it's meat-free, it's light - whatever. Wrong. So, so wrong.

Tonight was like Archie Bunker goes to yoga. I was burping & farting to beat the band. And don't even get me started on the smell coming out of my pores. I was literally excreting curry & garlic out of every orifice. There was this nice lady on the mat beside me decked out in the latest lululemon finery & I couldn't even look her in the eye. At the end of the class, I felt like I owed her an apology. But alas, I just rolled up my sweaty, smells-like-curry yoga mat & shirked back to my car.

Note to self: next time, just eat a Clif bar.
