First can I just say that the more politics and debate I listen to the more I just want to live on a hippie commune. I’m already sick of this election stuff (but you can bet your booty I’ll still be voting!)
Anyway, back to yoga.
(Thanks again to Courtney for hosting this fun challenge!)
I kinda failed this week at yoga.
Which is really backwards because I had such a stressful week that I should have done more yoga, not less. One day I’ll get that right. I think the problem is that I’m only a teeny step of way from pulling my hair out in full-on stress mode so when I actually have free time I just want to curl up in a comfy chair and watch Food Network for hours on end.
I did get two out of three yoga sessions for the week, which isn’t too bad.
- Wednesday: Hip-opener podcast from YogaJournal.com, my hips are getting tight! My hips used to be crazy flexible from all the dance I used to do and I’ve lost a lot of it, which makes me kinda sad. I need to work on stretching more consistently, especially after runs and spin class.
- Today: I did a Gentle Flow sequence (also Yoga Journal, I’m telling you I’m addicted to their podcasts!), which felt sooo good. Nothing like stretching out those tired, overstressed muscles. I think my body was basically telling me “hey, yoga is good when you are stressed, stop ignoring it. I like it.” I like tough power yoga, but gentle yoga can feel so dang good sometimes.
So my yoga week was not too bad, but my body needed so much more yoga than I actually did. It’s a shame that when I need yoga the most I let it fall by the wayside. Oh well, it’s something I’m working on, and I’m hoping to get in more yoga sessions this week!
And now for some pictures of my cats, because I miss them a lot:
I put a necklace on him so he looks extra pretty.
He actually sleeps like this, he’s a pretty ridiculous cat.
We are one crazy cat family and I’m perfectly okay with that. I miss the furry nuggets like crazy.
Do you stretch after workouts? I am terrible at remembering to!
Are you a cat or dog person? I pick both, even though I have lots of cats, I like dogs too.
