I’m not sure if I’ve let blogging fall by the wayside, or if I just haven’t had as much to blog about.

To be fair, it’s not like I’m not doing anything. I rarely have a night where I just go home after work. But that’s usually because I’m going to the gym, and that just gets boring to talk about after a while.

I did go to my first yoga class in over a year this week (with the lovely Amanda of Slow Like Honey). I was a little apprehensive that I would make a fool of myself, flopping around on a damp mat having lost all my muscle memory.

I was pleased to find, though, that I didn’t feel too stupid too many times during the class. (I mean, it’s yoga, so if you don’t feel stupid at least once during class, you’re probably doing it wrong.) And I only had to wimp out of a pose once, so I guess I haven’t lost all my yogi skillz.

My favorite part of the class, though, was that it was also an excuse for Amanda and I to hang out. I want to start turning fitness into more of a social activity, whether it’s an Epic class with my coworker, Diana, or a run with my husband (though he has yet to actually make good on his offer to go with me…so I’m open to anyone else who wants to join).

This idea is also beneficial because it means I won’t have to wake up extra early to fit in a workout because I have plans after work. Win-WIN.

Do you usually work out alone? I used to always go with my friend Michelle when I lived in Iowa, but I became a more solitary creature after moving to New York.

    I love this post and I want to work out with you. So funny because I was thinking about this subject today when I accepted my new job offer which will have me commuting for a little over an hour everyday. I currently work out alone in the morning because cardio machines and TV are a great pick-me-up, but I think I’m going to have to go back to night workouts, which I think are more of a buddy thing – maybe it’s the fact that you want to be looking forward to it? Also love the link – it was a good day for me to read my own advice :)

    I love working out alone. I circuit train so I really like to move at my own pace. I crank my music and silently judge everyone else to stay entertained and motivated. Plus when I go nudey-pants in the steam room afterwards I feel less awkward being solo or only in the company of strangers.
