Yesterday morning, I got up around 5:30am and slowly managed to roll into my workout clothes. Not quite sure what I was going to do for a workout, I shuffled out to the living room to do a quick browse of my collection of DVD’s. The fact that I even managed to get up without already having a workout planned was a victory itself. Typically, no plan = excuse to hit the alarm. But I’m tellin’ you guys…I’m on a roll the past couple of weeks!
So back to yesterday…I realized shortly after getting out into the living room that I ended up forgetting to put on socks and sneakers. Seriously, I’m not kidding. And being too lazy to make the short walk back down the hallway to my bedroom to get them, I decided I’d switch things up a bit and do some yoga.
I wound up doing this yoga DVD which I had honestly completely forgot I owned. In fact, I kinda forgot about a whole lot of stuff when it comes to yoga. Mainly, how sore I’d be the next day. Wowwww.
After finishing yesterday’s impromptu yoga session, I was surprised at just how good I felt. No, I didn’t work up too much of a sweat, but I just felt…good. So much so, that I’ve decided to make an attempt to incorporate it into my weekly workouts a bit more regularly.
Remember when I did the June Yoga Challenge a couple of years ago?
(Was it seriously 2 years ago already?!)
Well, I’m taking the challenge myself once again! Granted, it’s already the 10th of June, so it’s not really a monthly challenge, per se. It’s more of a “friendly reminder” for me to keep at it a bit more. My goal right now is just once a week (I’ve been getting about 4-5 workouts in per week) and I think that’ll be plenty for me.
But in addition to that, I’m also hoping to try out a new yoga class somewhere this month, as part of my partnership with Propel! Last month I faced a fitness fear. For the month of June, as part of their Add Flavor Challenge, I’ve been challenged to try a new or different workout with a friend. And right now, since I do have a few “yogi” friends (as well as a few others who are interested in a little extra yoga themselves), I’m really hoping to try out a new class once again.
Long, LONG time readers may remember that I first tried hot yoga back in 2010.
I really did enjoy it, but it’s something that just never stuck (plus the studio was just too far away for it to become a regular thing).
So we’ll see where this month takes me, both with adding more yoga to my life AND with attempting a new class with a friend. If anyone else is interested in joining in with me this month on a little extra yoga, I’d love to hear about it! I’m not hosting another formal challenge, but I’ll be checking in with updates and, of course, would love to hear from anyone who’s thinking about doing it, too.
