TBWCYL Day 82 - Lotus = Death

Today's task was painful. I had to sit in the Lotus position for 30 minutes which I cannot do. The book laid out that I was to put my right foot on my left thigh and my left foot on my right calf. I did this for about 10 minutes and the pain in my ankle was so intense that I almost cried. It felt like I had twisted my ankle after a bad fall or some other minor catastrophe.

I gave it about 20 minutes and switched position to have my left on my right calf. It was less painful and I spent 20 more minutes on the floor sitting and watching the last of 'Heroes'. This was sadistic. It definitely wasn't Zen.

That is all,

That book is seriously evil

If there is such as a thing as karma ... that book's coming back as a Jackie collins novel for sure

The sad part is that in college I took yoga and was able to sit like this without a problem. 6 years can really beat the crap out of you.
