In the last week, I found two powerful approaches to dating and exercise. First, I found speed dating. It just makes so much sense. Why spend one entire evening with one date when you can meet ten? Granted, all ten weren't amazing, but I really enjoyed meeting lots of new people. The funniest part about speed dating is the way that eight minutes can feel like 8 seconds or 80 minutes, depending on the date.
FastLife (http://www.fastlife.com/) did a great job of organizing the evening, and the biggest bonus of all -- I met a great new girlfriend! Some of the guys were pretty cool, too. All in all, a night is never a wasted when it brings about new friends.
Shortly after my speed dating session, I learned about Power Yoga at YogaSport in Dallas (http://www.yogasportdallas.com/) -- and it was the perfect place to spend a Friday evening. I felt the most amazing high at the end of the session -- a sense of euphoria that I hadn't felt in a long time....if ever. I was at peace, in a state of relaxation and bliss. The room was heated to 90 degrees, and the space was full of energy. I was greeted by Angela, the instructor -- and and I have to say that she's done an amazing job with her studio. I felt as if every muscle in my body was engaged, and I was grateful for the workout.
This past week was powerful -- speed dating, power yoga and relaxation with friends. I'm less focused on dating right now. I'm more focused on myself -- and it feels good.
