90 Days of Namaste: Day 4


Word of the Day: Judgement

I’ll keep this one short.

I started my day with my favorite kickboxing class, which usually makes me feel like such a boss. But today, I don’t know if it’s because I was tired or what was dogging me mentally, but I felt weak.

Then I came home and made myself do core-strength yoga videos because again, I felt weak. But anyway, back to my yoga experience: as I finished the video, I realized that the only person thinking I was weak was me. My kickboxing teacher kept saying how awesome we were–and I did push myself to my limits–and the yoga video instructors were all about the process, not the results.

I am the only person judging me, and while it’s not easy for me to stop, I can make it part of my practice to try. Isn’t that what yoga is all about?

Videos of the Day: I did two, both from PsycheTruth, because I couldn’t find a 30-min core strength video. One was 20 minutes and the other was 10. And I loved the second instructor. Will definitely be going back to her!
