Day 55: kicking butt and taking names

I was flying through my sun salutations. My breath was strong. My locks engaged. I started (silently) singing:

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

My warrior poses were so strong a tsunami couldn't have knocked me over. My yogic technique was unstoppable! Rawr!


Right as I was getting down to the floor Eevory woke up SCREAMING. It was her oh-my-god-you-have-betrayed-me, I-am-so-abandoned-in-my-crib cry.

I tried to occupy her next to my mat with some toys, but the energy was gone. So, it was a pretty short practice.

But when it was good, it was damn good!


  1. so... you actually know the words for Eye of the Tiger? Awesome. I've never been able to memorize lyrics. I'm the type that would sing, "It's the eye of the tiger, la la la la la la, rising up to the challenge of la la la. and the la la la la la la la in the night... and la la la... all, in the eye of the tiger".

    So sad.

    Sorry you were interrupted, but happy you had a little kick ass practice while it lasted!

  2. When I was in law school I listened to that song on my iPod along with some equally cheesy motivational songs before exams while waiting for the proctor to pass out exams.

    Maybe I should start doing that before my practice...
