Day 64: Back on Track

You know how sometimes you can workout and not even realize what you’re doing?  Before you know it you’ve practiced an hour of yoga or run an hour and you do not remember moving.  I’ve felt that way the past week or so whenever I workout.  It’s just been half-hearted.  I was missing something.

I think what was missing was the reminder of why I am doing this.  Why, oh why am I working out everyday for a year?  Am I nuts?  It was kind of making me feel that way with all the commuting, time spent working out, the blog writing/thinking about the blog writing, talking about the blog….and then it hit me, this is so worth it because for once I am challenging myself.

Time management has become a huge part of my life, as well as prioritizing and taking care of myself.  You can’t just workout 365 days in a row without taking incredible care of yourself.  I have been sleeping more, eating better and making the best use of my time than I have at any other point in my life.  64 days in and I am getting stronger, mentally and physically.  All of the sudden my body feels depressed when it doesn’t get to sweat and emotionally, I crave sharing my experience with others.

It took another yoga sculpt class with Ms. Caitlin at Core Power Yoga to get me there.  You don’t have time to think in those classes, you just do.  Do what she says, when she says it and if you slack off then she calls you on it.  The intensity was just what I needed to get out of my mind and back into my heart.

My challenge to you is to find whatever it is you need to take you back to the original intention in whatever it is you are working on (your body, relationship, career, health).  Those little reminders are what can help keep you on course.  So remind away and keep going back to your inspiration.  That inspiration will take you wherever you want to go.
