30 days of yoga

Sunday, December 02, 2012

As I slowly feel my way back to healthy living, I'm going to try something of an experiment. It's definitely along the lines of "one bite of the elephant at a time." I can't handle the whole elephant right now, and I know that. But my first bite is going to be 30 days of yoga. I started today, and for the next 29 days I'm going to do yoga every day. It may be a short routine. It may be a longer one as I get stronger and have more stamina. But every day, I'm going to do at least a little. And I'm not necessarily limiting myself to JUST yoga. If I start feeling strong and healthy and capable around day 14, for example, I may add some more intense cardio or something. But for 30 days, I'm at least doing yoga. I'll try to remember to report here each day on what I did, how I feel, etc. Accountability and all that.

Today all I did were the 12 "daily dozen" poses from Sara Ivanhoe's Basic Yoga for Dummies DVD. I had a bad headache yesterday, and the stretches seem to ease some of the leftover ache and tension. Which was kind of what I was going for, so we'll call that a success. ;)
