sol #9: introverted friyay

My Fridays are pretty awesome. There's no more of the going out late or being crazy, just an easy unwind into my weekend.

Typically, I leave work pretty promptly, because I have to get to the yoga studio at 4:15 for my shift of helping take care of the studio. I know, finish work to go do more work, but it's totally worth it. For 90 minutes, I'm on my own, cleaning up around the lobby, locker rooms, and doing the mats. It's nice to unwind a bit with some quiet time after being "on" all week.

My shift ends at 5:45, just in time for my favorite class, Hot Power Fusion. This class is heated to 105 and it's a series of balancing and strength movements, tying breath to movement. What I like is the series of movements here is always the same. The music changes, the teacher sets a different intention each time, but it's meant to be a detoxifying session where you constrict and then expand your joints and internal organs. Walking out of HFP at 7pm feels AHHHHMAZING.

Once I find myself in this state of Zen, I figure out some food, and then head home. Usually to a quiet apartment by myself, as I'm introverted and derive my energy from the ever elusive quiet time. Sometimes I"ll catch up on my DVR, sometimes I'll take a bath and read, sometimes do a detox face mask (currently sitting here blogging with one!), but always super happy to have time to myself to unwind.

Clearly, do not take myself too seriously!

This isn't to say I'm opposed to doing something fun on Friday with friends, but either way, I'm usually snoozing by 10pm, latest. Teachers out there, you know what I'm talking about!

What's your Friday night look like?


  1. Sounds like introvert heaven to me. I DO know what you're talking about and am lucky enough to have friends who get it, too. We know Friday night is a no-go. Thanks for the detox face mask pic. It was an unexpected laugh.

  2. Ahhh, sounds like a great way to unwind after the week...except for 105 degrees, but if you love it, excellent. My Friday was a little louder and more intense because it's my son's state tournament...but I'm enjoying this quiet hour after tucking everyone else in for the night.

  3. There really is nothing better than a date with yourself. One of my favorite things to do with "me" is going to a movie theater to watch something girly.
