When I started practicing yoga, I told myself that I didn't want to be one of those people who endlessly talked about it to anyone within Tweeting distance. I wanted to be cool about the whole thing, like, sure it's awesome but you're not going to hear it from me. But I find that impossible to live by. I think yoga is amazing and if you haven't tried it yet, you must! I tell you this with all eartnestness.
It's been a month since I started yoga and honestly, I've never felt better. I actually haven't lost that much weight (only three pounds I think) but like I told you guys earlier the weight loss goal has sort of fallen by the wayside. Yoga helps me clear my head and find the strength to push myself in places that I didn't know existed within me. I feel lighter, more alert yet calmer.
...and okay a bit leaner.
However, don't get the impression that I'm good at it. I'm not. My flexibility, while improved in the past month, still needs a lot of work. My upper body strength is almost non-existent. I drop poses when I can't take it anymore. But what I have going for me is the fact that I know all this and fully intend to change them in the coming weeks! I'm going to work harder, focus better, until I can do a freakin' headstand!
There was a point when I thought I didn't want to take any more of this shit. I was at a hot yoga class and I felt nauseous and weak; I had to lie down, rethink what I'm doing to myself. But apparently my period was just coming up, hence the faintness. The next week I'm back on track!
So that's my yoga update for now. :) I'll post again when I have something substantial to report. Hope I convinced you to try it as well, if you haven't!
