Birthday Yoga Challenge Day 26: Still here

I am happy to report that in spite of not checking since Day 14, I am still going strong in my challenge. Day 26 and 25 classes down. I missed one class, so I will be doing another double this weekend to make up for it. I am happy that my schedule has enabled me to miss only 1 class.  It has taken all kinds of organization and preparedness on my part.

Classes completed as of Day 10: 10 Today I’ll be going into Day 11 of the Challenge, and it’s been an interesting ride so far. Let me summarize… Day 5: Pretty uneventful class. Felt strong and made it all the way through with no issues. Day 6: I missed class because I was running late and there was an accident on the highway. I missed it by just 6 minutes. AAAAAGHHHHH. Lesson learned however. I need to budget enough time to get to the new studio, particularly during rush hour! This put me TWO classes behind, which meant I was […] Read more...
