Last night was trick-or-treat night. I had a little too much candy for dinner. 🙂 I think my whole family woke up with a sugar hang over! Ella was wearing her new sunglasses saying, “Sun off me!” I did not do yoga in the morning. I did not do it in the afternoon. I did not do it before dinner. Or after dinner. I didn’t do it until right before bed! Whew! Got that in under the wire. I ate too much Indian food for dinner too.
It was the end of the day and I was convincing myself that I didn’t have to do it today. I could just skip today. I’ll just roll out the mat and sit for a few minutes of meditation. Then I remembered yesterday’s pick a “pray-for-us” someone and help yourself get focused. I needed a big one today to stick me on the mat. Once I did the picking and started the practice it flew by. I feel capable and strong. There are some poses I can’t do but so much is changing already. Specifically, back in the summer, I started the everyday yoga doing only the practice to the hurdler’s stretches and feeling sore for days after. Now I do the full practice w/ all vinyasas. I can finally hold back bend for five breaths again. I could not even get up into back bend five days ago!
These are links for the yoga I’m doing:
