Confession #1: One of my “New Year’s Goals” was to practice yoga one time a week.
Confession #2: Last week I did not practice yoga.
Confession #3: I feel REALLY guilty about not practicing yoga last week!
I realize that this feeling of guilt is completely silly because this is a self-made goal and sometimes life gets in the way and you just have to go with the flow, but I feel completely guilty that in the second week of January I have already ” messed” up one of my goals.
Because I missed yoga last week, this morning when I would PREFER to go to an indoor cycling class I am choosing to go to yoga instead.
I would almost always prefer to complete a high intensity workout that will have my heart racing by the end, but my muscles don’t always agree with me. Stretching and practicing yoga are like chores for me. I know I have to do it and I know it’s good for me and will help my physical fitness in my more intense workouts, but it’s still hard to make it part of my routine.
I’m not naturally flexible, and it is hard work for me to get into those poses! But when I DO actually hit up a yoga class, I feel SO good afterward. Not just physically good…but just all around mentally GOOD 🙂
So, to prevent myself from having another week without yoga (which I am sure will happen so I will try not to beat myself up over it) I have compiled a list of Yoga videos on Youtube from some of my favorite and some new-to-me yogis.
