Okay, I know I'm a little overdue for explaining how 'Christmas spectacular' went this year, but it's coming. In the meantime though, today I'm starting my yoga challenge! I suppose you could call it a New Year's resolution, but I feel those are tainted and doomed to fail. So instead, it is my forty day challenge. lululemon inspired this one - check out the full details here.
Basically, forty days of yoga. What? Crazy!?!? Well, I've always wanted to get more into yoga (I don't think you're supposed to creek and crack as much as I do in the morning and touching ones toes shouldn't be a fantasy) and this seemed like an excellent challenge. I do like a challenge, so... challenge accepted.
Apparently it takes forty days to create new habits, so that's where the magical number comes from and here are my 'rules':
- starting today, January 7, 2013 I will do yoga every day for forty days (simple enough?)
- what constitutes 'doing yoga'? can I just wear the pants and call it yoga? hmmm, tempting, but no... my threshold is fifteen minutes a day (totally doable, right?)
Now don't get me wrong, I haven't moved into a yoga studio, I plan on doing most of these classes chez moi but recently I signed up for yogaglo and they have loads of fabulous classes online (even quick little five minuters!) and I've queued up a bunch of classes for this week. I'm totally pumped and my yoga blocks from Amazon should arrive tomorrow (and I'm from Vancouver, so I've got lots of the pants already!).
Hopefully I will be closer to gumby by the end (toes, here I come) but hopefully a little more grounded and calm. I think I repeated a record number of eff bombs in my head today, so perhaps yoga will help me manage that ;)
My mom's joining me, woot, woot! Anyone else?
