The 30-Day Yoga Challenge :: Days 10 and 11

12 Jun

This past weekend was crazy busy, and this week hasn’t slowed down yet. I’ve been working my yoga in between work and appointments and friends and eating and sleeping. So while the yoga alone isn’t the only thing leaving me exhausted, combined with everything else it’s definitely a major factor.

Day 10: Ashtanga Basics

I met up with Carolina from Peas in a Blog and we started our week off sweating real pretty. Ten days into our 30-Day Challenge and we finally took our first class together! No pretty heart-shaped sweat marks on my back, but I did walk out of class with a giant frizz ball for a head. Funny, I walked into class with straight hair.

Day 11: Yoga Basics

I had an appointment between work and yoga and by the time it was yoga time, I wanted to bail. I tried to think of excuses to miss, but none convinced me enough to skip class. I wish I was a better liar. I totally would’ve lied to myself.

Instead I headed to class and breathed and moved and tried as hard as I could to relax. You may as well have asked me to do the  impossible . I tried to drown out the mental to-do lists in my head, but couldn’t stop thinking about them. And every time I did a downward dog I thought about how I was due for a pedi. Didn’t I just give myself one? Does yoga somehow make my nail polish last less time?? (Answer: Not directly, but I’ve been showering twice a day sometimes and all the showers do.)

I’m off to bed. I have some yoga to do at 6 AM. I’m already planning the different ways I can be glutenous in the evening!

How do you get yourself to work out when life is busy and you’re exhausted?

    Post-yoga hair is always hilarious. You never know if you’re going to get a frizzball or a sopping wet clump that sticks to your face.

      Yeah. I can’t decide which one is worse. 🙂
