Welcome to Day 2 of 30! Today felt a little crazier than yesterday. There was a lot of stop and go and people needing Mommy's attention, but I guess that is what happens some times...or all the time. Mom life!
Today's video was Day 2 of Hatha Yoga For Happiness: Gratitude with Fightmaster Yoga. The focus of today was generating energy.
Before: Before the video I was discouraged a bit by the number I saw on the scale this morning. I'm focusing really hard this week on not cheating on my sugar intake or dangerous foods and I'm exercising every day, so I guess I was hoping for better results. But lets be real, it's only day 2. This will take time, and as long as I'm on Prednisone, that scale may not move or it may move in the direction I don't want it to go. If I didn't have a wedding that I was participating in next month I wouldn't be so worried...I don't think. I guess this is where it gets hard and you have to give yourself some grace. What is my focus? My focus is not the scale. My focus is doing 30 days of yoga and eating well to heal my body. Hopefully my body image will also improve during this time. So what am I going to do about it? I am going to keep going and take it one day at a time. I am 2 for 2. That's awesome!
During: I mentioned before that there was a lot of stop and go during today's session. The dog opened the front door and walked on my yoga mat with muddy paws, so that was fun. I had to stop to clean up that slippery mess. Plus my little guy was very curious about what Mommy was doing today and ended up with his own yoga mat and stretches beside me. That part was fun. Some of the poses today were new to me. They required balance and focus because you had to use opposite parts of your body. I could tell this was new to my body and was shaking like a leaf. You know the song "weebles wooble but they don't fall down?" Yeah that was me. It felt great to use new muscles though. I really had to focus on breathing and balancing so I didn't hurt myself or fall down. I think the best part was when we were "clearing our minds" during corpse pose, my son thought it was a great time to zoober on my biceps. My mind wasn't cleared, but I sure was laughing. Happiness 101....laugh!
After: Oh I'm tired. I feel a little shaky due to the use of new muscles, but that makes me excited too. I like the thought of strengthening different muscles every day. I would like to do a session by myself, in a quiet room, but I don't know if that is going to happen unless I wake up earlier than the boys and they wake up early enough. I do love doing yoga first thing in the morning though because I feel like I still have time to start the day and I don't feel rushed. My dog is telling me he has to go outside, so off we go. The day has begun!
I hope you have a great day today. Let me know how your session goes. What did you like about it? What didn't you like about it? How do you feel afterwards? Do you feel like you can take on the world? I do! See you tomorrow!
