The Yoga Challenge, Day 4

September 22, 2016

I was so eager to chat about Tracking yesterday, I forgot to tell you that I am really enjoying Yoga with Adriene. I told you about my first class with her, but I failed to mention my second class with her on Tuesday night.

Adriene has a mantra for each day. 

Day One was I Accept, which I blogged about. I Accept…then you, the Yogi, fill in the blank. I chose the word “Me”. I Accept Me.

Day Two was I Create. Again, you the Yogi, fill in the blank. I chose the word Peace because the dogs were in the room with me and if one wasn’t licking, the other was whining. It was quite annoying, and I was trying really hard to block them out, so I chose Peace. I Create Peace.

Day Three was I Embrace. Again, with the licking and whining. I would put them out of the room and close the door, but that would actually be worse because they would both sit outside of the door and whine until I was finished. I put doggie beds in my workout room and made them get in their beds. I chose to embrace my space, my Yoga Mat. I Embrace my Yoga Mat.

My Hot Yoga class (I went to that on Sunday) that I go to is a really good workout for me. I get my heart rate up, I sweat and I feel my body be challenged for one hour.

The classes that I decided to try out with Adriene on Youtube have not yet been very challenging, and they are only about 30 minutes in length. I love them, I just don’t feel as though I am pushing myself as hard as I expected to be in my 15 Day Yoga Challenge.

I am however learning new things and I love the way that she explains each move in detail so that I know how to do it properly. After only three classes, I have already learned some new Yoga positions.

Did any of you check her out? Click on Yoga with Adriene if you are interested. In this link, she simply introduces herself and talks about what she will be doing in her 30 Days of Yoga Camp, which are the classes that I am following. I’ll likely add to my 15 days, and complete her 30 Days of Yoga Camp.

Here are yesterday’ eats…

Breakfast – 8 SP

Egg Whites (1 SP), Sausage (2 SP), Sweet Potato (4 SP), Olive Oil (1 SP), Peppers and Onions (0 SP)

Dinner – 8 SP

Dinner was weird. Mike was golfing and I spent the evening on the couch catching up with Dancing with the Stars. I finally decided that I should eat something around 8:30. This is what I found without having to cook. I still had a little bit of Pork leftover from our Family Dinner here on Sunday. I added a few Roasted Plantains for crunch and a few Dill Pickles.

    Yes, it is kind of ridiculous. One was ON the mat until I went to get the beds. Silly mutts!!

  2. My dogs would be barking and yipping outside the door or they would want to be in my lap if I was on the floor!!
