Today I fell in love with Yoga-X.
I woke up at 3 am with my mind racing and stressing about all the things I have to accomplish before the end of the week. Worries of not getting my 7 hours of beauty sleep kept me up even longer. When I finally fell back asleep almost two hours later, I was jolted back to wakefulness by the sound of bulldozers outside my window just a short while later.
Great, I thought, Yoga-X is going to be a real pleasure.
I dragged myself to the mat after two cups of coffee and pressed play. To my surprise, I was happy to be there.
My disturbed sleep had left me feeling off-center this morning. Yoga-X was just what I needed, I guess, to get me back to where I needed to be.
The first hour went by quickly and yes, yes, yes, I actually enjoyed it. I felt really present and maybe because I felt tired, it was the first time in a long while that I couldn't think of any other place where I would rather be.
When it comes to working out, each day is different, even when we're repeating the same routines over and over. Am I expecting that I'll love Yoga-X next week as much as I did this week? A girl can dream, can't she?
Day 22 down. 68 more to go!
