Getting Better?

Sooo…How is this weeks challenge going? I have found it very humbling, I really suck at yoga, lol!

Plus, it is hard to have the “luxury” of time..which is just an excuse. Actually, doing yoga has helped me decompress and chill a little from my busy schedule.

Let’s face it, when we are busy, 9 out 10 times we are also stressed. When we are stressed our muscles get tight and tense! Take a guess at what makes them feel better?? Yep…stretching, yoga, mobility work etc.

In short, don’t skip your chosen recovery method.

I found this quote from Oprah Winfrey and it has helped me push through, “My philosophy is that not only are you responsible for your life, but doing the best at this moment puts you in the best place for the next moment.” I love the first part, we must take responsibility in our training and eating! I was and am to quick to say, “I don’t have time for yoga.” But…if I want what is best for my body, I will do some sort of recovery work, this week I chose yoga and going this will help me be ready for the next big moment.

Who knows, maybe yoga will help me lift more weights next week…the point is be prepare!

Ge be awesome!
