Hi Loves! Well, last week I committed to it and did it. I picked up my yoga camp practice and did 6 out of 7 days. One evening I was out of town. I also worked on hitting over 5000 steps a day and did so for 5 of 7 days. (I tend to take weekends off from steps.)
That said – getting back into yoga was wonderful and challenging. Some poses were more difficult than others but I just kept with it and have enjoyed getting back into my groove.
I also really focused on eating better and smarter. For my Tuesday morning weigh in today – I lost 2.2lbs since last week – taking me back to my lowest since 12/8/15. I’ve hovered around this number since Christmas but to meet it exactly was a surprise that I’ll take! 🙂
I also wanted to get back to sharing a favorite yoga pose of the week. This is a simple one but a good one. Downward Dog. Its amazing for arms and I’m feeling some definition coming back in my bat wings. Its a challenge and it took me a while before I could do it flat footed but I can. (I have pictures to prove it – but I’ll keep them for now!) It became somewhat of a goal for me to get this pose and now a year and a half later its become one of my favorites because I remember starting yoga November/December 2014 and struggling to even attempt the modified pose and hold it. Now I can hold it for several breaths and love that feeling.
Check out the dog – and I’m wishing you another wonderful week! 🙂
