Ultimate Barbecued Ribs
Yoga was extreme today! There were headstands and back bends galore. My body obviously feels much better today as compared to Monday. Otherwise, I would have probably snuck out of class today when she rubbed her hands together and said "go to the wall, we are doing head stands today"!
I had a revelation on Monday after class. My yoga teacher had posted on her facebook fan page "Your issues are in your tissues". Over the weekend I was feeling a little uptight and just not right. On Monday, my body was overly tight and not wanting to move in the ways I make it move three times a week. So, my feelings are that my body was very tight all weekend and therefore made me feel "uptight and just not right". Sometimes we don't know what to expect from our bodies and it can have an affect on our personalities as well. Memories of the past that can disturb one's well-being and keep us from reaching our full potential in all areas of our lives. For some of us, it can even hinder us from our ability to heal pain and dis-ease. Don't let your past events be so strong that they begin to define you and cripple you into thinking small. Be strong and have no regrets. Let yourself learn from your mistakes and keep on keeping on!
Speaking of bodies, I barbecued some ribs up over the weekend! Oh, is that unappetizing to put those two together? Well, don't worry, they were baby back pork ribs.... These had a deep, rich flavor and they were falling off the bone yummy. Of course they were, they were Tyler Florence's Ultimate Barbecued Ribs! Anything from Tyler Florence is to. die. for.
