90 Days of Namaste: Day 5

Word of the Day: Progress

You know those days where you’re just frustrated? Like little things bug you more than they should? Today was one of those. Starting with yoga: I wanted to go to an hour long class but due to transportation issues, I couldn’t make it. So I knew when I started my online class tonight, it would be interesting.

I decided to go with my girl Erica Vetra because she never lets me down. Unsurprisingly, she did not disappoint. It was level 3 of her “Morning Weight Loss Yoga” and it was all about balance. When I felt shaky during my balance work, Erica said “Thank yourself for challenging your body,” and my perspective totally changed. It was a subtle reminder that I was the one being frustrated about things during my day, no one else. And while that frustration is natural, I can challenge myself to change my attitude. That shift in thinking to me equals progress.

Also I could hold Warrior Three for like two minutes longer! So that’s good! To get my last five minutes of yoga, I did a 5-minute stretch workout, which was nice but not my favorite. As always, Erica gets the gold.  ❤
