That post title is ridiculous. I haven’t been nearly as disciplined about blogging as I have about yoga, and even with that, the challenge isn’t going as well as I’d like. Last week my daughter, husband, and I all were laid low by a brutal flu. Between taking care of them and being sick myself I missed two days of yoga, but I did doubles yesterday and today to make up for them. So I guess instead of a challenge where I do yoga every day for thirty days, this has become a challenge where I do thirty yoga classes in thirty days. I can live with that. More flexibility is always better than less.
I’m halfway through and already noticing some great benefits. My shoulders are MUCH looser than they were. My legs too. I’m much more cheerful and patient after I’ve done yoga. Things that would have annoyed me just last month don’t anymore, as long as I’ve hit my mat that day. Also, I’ve noticed that since I started this challenge I’ve spent my evenings reading instead of watching tv or messing around on the internet. Even after a full day keeping up with with a toddler, I still have the energy (both physical and mental) to focus on a book for a couple hours. That’s a benefit of yoga I hadn’t expected, but am very much enjoying.
