30 Day Yoga Challenge: Day 30 . . . Heck Yeah

It is officially time to celebrate! I made it to day 30 of the 30 Day Yoga Challenge. It still counts if I took two days off doesn’t it?

At the beginning of this challenge, my body was so out of shape. I had not really exercised in many years. My diet was horrible.

After I started to diet and do yoga, I realized how much junk I ate and how often.

So here we are at day 30. I feel like I’m not so out of shape. Of course, there is still work to do on the working out. I can’t do a headstand. Yet!

I don’t drink nearly as much pop. The junk food level has decreased by about 90 %. I don’t know if that’s the correct number but it’s pretty close.

The good news is that I’ve lost 10 lbs. I haven’t been this weight since 2007. That is a long time to be overweight and out of shape.

This video was on Pinterest this morning. When I say morning, I mean early afternoon. My sleep habits are next on the list of health issues to fix.

So close to the end but it’s not really the end. It’s just the beginning of starting a regular schedule.

After this challenge, I may not do yoga every day. However, it will still be part of my regular workout routine. I’m planning to make time for yoga at least three times a week.

Without yoga, I may lack the focus to get anything done. There is so much to do! In my opinion, yoga is the key to being able to focus.

30 Day Yoga Challenge: Day 28 . . . I have Lost Count

With all of the things that I’ve had to do in the last two days, I have not made time for yoga. I was disappointed but I’m still going to finish the challenge. Better late than never, right?

I did some stretching during my 2 day hiatus. I’m not sure if I would call it yoga exactly. It was more like when Woody Harrelson was stretching in “White Men Can’t Jump” or Sheldon Cooper in “Big Bang Theory.” It looked ridiculous and yet effective.

Today, I’m going to do a video found on Doyogawithme.com.

30 Day Yoga Challenge: Day 28 . . . Playful Yoga

It’s been so hard to focus today. So many distractions – the weather, the new Magic Mike XXL trailer, the Rihanna, Kanye and Paul McCartney video. There was also some very exciting news. I might have danced around the house for a few minutes.

However, it’s time to get back to yoga practice. Maybe I can get that muscle in my shoulder blade to loosen up.

I always enjoy Yoga with Adrienne. In my opinion, she’s an excellent instructor.

Wow! It is day 27 of the 30 Day Yoga Challenge. I can’t believe that the challenge is almost over. I feel as if I have succeeded, although I know the challenge or my journey with yoga isn’t over.

It has definitely been an eye-opening experience. I suspected that my body and my concentration was out of shape. I didn’t know if I would improve in the yoga practice or not. After two weeks, I felt like I had improved in mind and body.

Who knew that yoga could make such a difference? Yogis. Yogis know. Or is it Yogis knew?

30 Day Yoga Challenge: Day 25 . . . Jedi

Since I have to use some Jedi mind tricks so my kids don’t notice my Yoga session, I found a yoga video about Jedi yoga. How awesome is that?!?

I better hurry before my mom wakes up from her nap or my kids cause chaos in the good living room.

Only five more days to go before I’m finished with this challenge. I might rewardr myself with some Yoda yoga pants.
