Left it all on my mat

I barely made it to class today. It was one of those days where I was planning to go an afternoon class, but then I took a nap and came so close to talking myself out of it. I was slightly hungover today and had cramps. I know - boo hoo, definitely privileged white girl problems! But I'm so glad I went to class. I wasn't as hydrated as I should have been but when I get out of the routine of practicing daily or almost daily, I forget how much I need the 90 minutes of vacation of a Bikram yoga class. Yes, I'm joking in a way because class can be hard and challenging in a mental and physical way, but I so need 90 minutes away from my phone and technology and multi-tasking and thinking about what I "should" be doing. I wasn't the same person when I left the studio as I was when I walked in.
In other news, I can't seem to find the "good" coconut water in my neighborhood anymore. Anyone have thoughts on other post-class beverages? Is coconut water really all that? I've started drinking a mini can of Coke after getting home from class. I know the corn syrup isn't great, but it's a heck of a lot cheaper than coconut water and it is the best can of Coke you will ever have in your life! Am I the only one who thinks food tastes better after Bikram?
Ok, enough rambling for tonight...
