Hello Yoga Gurus! It’s week two and guess what? I made it through another week and Lord knows that my legs, tail bone and back are sore. I must say that I feel great although I am a bit sore bit not as sore as I was the first week. Perhaps that’s the result of me being foolish and playing catch up in a few days. Its been a week since I have written a blog post and that’s because I have been focusing on building my business and making sure that I get in to see my doctor to get checked for these horrible migraines that I have started having once again. I was shocked when the nurse asked me to step on the scale and she told me that I weighed 147 pounds. I know that may seem like nothing to many reading this post but to me that’s a hell of a lot in my book. I try my best to stay fit but these dam thighs and my stomach are getting a bit big. Hence I am glad that decided to take on this yoga challenge and rediscover my love for yoga. I can already see my progress and although I still have a super long way to go I welcome the challenge.
Here are my week two poses:
Day 9: #LetsGetFlexyIn2015 Kurmasana #TortoisePose
“Your vision becomes clear when you look inside your heart. Who looks outside, dreams Who looks inside, awakens.”~Carl Gustav Jung
Day 10: Inverted Staff Pose / Viparita Dandasana
“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hold on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”
~Harriet Beecher Stowe
Day 11: Warrior Pose/Digasana. This pose is all about endurance
“With faith and obedience practiced long enough, the Holy Ghost becomes a constant companion, our nature’s change, and endurance becomes certain.”
~Henry B. Eyring
Day 12: Hanumanasana/Split. This is as far as this natural diva was going to get. My legs are super sore!
Excuse the game cords in the back. Momma was playing the #xboxone
“Intention is one of the most powerful forces there is. What you mean when you do a thing will always determine the outcome. The law creates the world.”
― Brenna Yovanoff
Day 13: Kapinjalasana/Balance. It’s all about BALANCE BABY! I’m amazed at my improvement over this challenge.
“Man maintains his balance, poise, and sense of security only as he is moving forward.”
Day 14: Eka Pada Kapotasana/Pigeon Posture. Mini me and I are taking a try at this pose. We still need some practice but I’m so happy to see him interested in yoga. Although this is the first picture that I’ve …posted he’s been doing the challenge every day.
“The will to win, the desire to succeed, the urge to reach your full potential… these are the keys that will unlock the door to personal excellence.”
Day 15: Urdhva Dhanurasana
“Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.”
I am truly getting into the swing of things. I intend to continue my yoga journey after this challenge is over and hopefully they will host another one next month. I can’t say that I am looking forward to week three because those poses are hard as hell but I plan to give it my best shot. If you are already following me on Instagram
then you have already gotten a first hand look at these poses. See you next week! #LetsGetFlexyIn2015
