First let me open by saying Happy Mother's Day to you moms out there. I hope you had the most wonderful day. Mine started out with my son bursting through the bedroom door singing "it's Mother's Day" at the top of his lungs. Both my guys we were so excited to celebrate that they were dressed and had the car started before I even had a chance to dry my hair after my shower. I was out the door barely dressed with slightly damp hair and a swipe or two of mascara, but I am not complaining one single bit. I had years of yearning to be a mom and many struggles before my son came into our lives, so I will not be ungrateful for the time I get to spend with either of my guys.
The last three days seemed to be like this...busy! The days seemed to be packed full of things to do. Yesterday was Methotrexate day too. I really don't like this medicine and how I am always feeling under the weather on Saturdays. But, even if my phone was ringing off the hook Friday, I was feeling sick Saturday, and every minute of today was spent with my guys, I still managed to take time each day for yoga. It's beginning to be a routine. Today I have yet to do my yoga session and I have been thinking about it all day long. I keep thinking "I have to get it in." Not in a stressing manner, but more like I know how important it is to my health and how good it makes me feel.
On day 4 and 5 I continued with Hatha Yoga Happiness with Fightmaster Yoga. Even though I felt awful yesterday I really liked the session. It felt so good to breathe and stretch. The plank poses were awesome and I was surprised that I could do each variation. The heater kicked on half way through so instead of sweltering in a hot yoga session I opened the window slightly. It was so peaceful listening to the rain, breathing, and looking at the beautiful view of the forest. I think the peacefulness was why I enjoyed yesterday so much. Plus the theme was "enjoy the now," which I found to be perfect.
It is late here tonight so instead of doing yoga for happiness, I am going to look for a night time yoga sequence. Something that will calm the mind and the body and help me get a good night sleep. My sleep tracker says I am getting about 6 hours. I find that I need more sleep than normal while in a Crohn's flare, so this could be attributing to my fatigue during the day. I know I won't get 8 hours of sleep tonight, but I am hoping for a restful night's sleep.
I will check in again tomorrow and let you know how the evening yoga goes. I hope you have a great week. Talk to you soon!
