Fitness Friday: 30 Day Yoga Challenge
I miss my yoga mat. When I got pregnant in August, I took yoga occasionally, but nowhere near the level I was previously. I was tired all the time, and I favored my bed over workouts. During the miscarriage, I have really been out of my fitness routine. Josh and I have made it a point to do a lot of morning and after work walking, and we went hiking a few weekends ago, but I haven't done a whole lot to make me feel like me.
The best thing I can think to do to revive myself and get back into my life is to turn to yoga. It has always been there to quiet my mind and help me reconnect with my body. So, for the month of November, I'm going to dive in. I have challenged myself to do 30 days of yoga, whether that be 5 simple sun salutations at home or a class at my favorite studio.
Because I exist in a world of parameters, and do well when given a task, I have devised for myself a rough schedule of practice for the next month.
I challenge all of you to look at your life and see if you find something you are missing. Do you want to focus on painting more, or cooking home meals, or walking your beloved pet? Well, we can make November a month to really reconnect with a part of our lives we may have found lacking. I challenge you to make a schedule for yourself, whatever it may be, and stick to it.
Who knows, maybe December will be a month to tackle something else!
