Just checking in to let you guys know how I'm doing with my challenge. If you follow @YogabyIris on Facebook, then you know how Week 1 went. After Week 2 I am at the halfway point.
My goals are to:
Eat and drink more mindfully every day.
Get fired up again about being physically active every day.
Recommit to my personal yoga practice.
Eat and Drink More Mindfully Every Day
Week 1 had me in the kitchen and cooking most meals. Week 2 saw a bit of backsliding with takeaway because of an overdue grocery shopping trip. But I chose healthy options, including a Greek Mediterranean gyro, a salmon burger and a Korean rice bowl.
Get Fired Up Again About Being Physically Active Every Day.
Week 2 started off with two group classes. I attended a Barre class to work on toning and sculpting. The next day I went to a cool fitness/networking event for young businesswomen, which included a 30-minute weight-bearing and resistance routine with a partner. Both of these were great fun and inspired my cardio and strength routine for the week.
Recommit to My Personal Yoga Practice
Both Week 1 and Week 2 were easy for me with the help of a yoga challenge I'm following through my yoga subscription site. It's a month-long basics challenge, so I'm reviewing categories of poses like standing and balancing in detail and breaking down specific poses. This is helping me grow as a yogi and teacher.
