How did I get 5 BEHIND!?

Status: March 22nd, classes completed: 17

Somehow I’ve managed to fall behind on this challenge, there was a few days where between work and teaching I didn’t have time to make it to a class and accepted that I’d be making it up down the line. There was also a friends stag weekend, with an excess of food and alcohol- aka a complete write off. I’ve even doubled up a few times and STILL haven’t caught up! People, I am pooped!

My body has definitely adapted to WANTING to practice once a day, its great- but that’s not the issue. Its finding the time to double up and get caught up. Initially I had this in the bag, I was Cross-fitting and going to yoga in the evening, I was on a roll!
Now I feel a bit run down and totally out of Wack. I argue with myself what the point of this is… should I just keep on course and continue going to 1 class a day and congratulate myself on that fine achievement alone? What about the days (like yesterday) where I chose to go outside for a walk in the beautiful spring sunshine with my mom, instead of going to the yoga studio? I feel like its a fair trade? After all BALANCE in life is a much larger achievement with greater rewards than completing a 30 day commitment.

Maybe that’s what my problem really is; I’ve lost the idea that it’s a commitment to practice, and fell into the mold of people thinking this is a CHALLENGE, a competition… something I can win.  

When you fall of the horse, you have to just get back on and keep riding, so this journey continues!

  1. Hey, Maré,
    Very profound my dear niece, very profound.
    Perhaps the answer is in your question.
    Doing “whatever” is a good thing and
    having no guilt after the fact is healthy.

    I go back on things and say, “it seemed
    like a good idea at the time.” Here’s
    another message I discovered far too
    late in my life by Mark Twain.

    “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
    by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you
    did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the
    safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails.
    Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain

    Warmly,

    Uncle Douglas
