30 Day Yoga Challenge: Days 23-30

For the record, I know the challenge ended on November 8th. And, I know that it’s currently November 18th. Yep. I’m late. But the good news is that I finished the challenge! That’s right. I made time for yoga for 30 whole days (except for that one day when I was too tired). Of  course, I waited so long to finish up the posting that it seems useless to try to recap each practice. Instead, I’ve decided to just recap my experience.

This challenge, even though I’ve been kind of terrible with blog updating, has been great. It has forced me to make time for myself every day and to realize that time for myself might vary day to day. Sometimes it’s an hour practicing in a room alone and sometimes its a 20 min practice in my living room with S., the dogs, and the TV in the background. I’ve found that both, and everything in between, is rejuvenating for me depending on my mood.  That in itself will be very helpful in the next few months, but probably the best thing about this challenge is that it’s helped me develop a yoga habit. Even though the challenge has been over for 10 days, I’ve kept up with the daily practice without too much trying.

After the challenge, I’m more relaxed than normal and I feel pretty fabulous, both of which are really surprising considering I’m roughly 10 weeks away from giving birth (!!!) and have been working 50 hour weeks for the last 6 weeks (also one reason I’ve been lagging on the blogging front). Basically, the only downside to the challenge is that you have to make time for it. At first that’s a bit of a challenge in itself, but really its not that hard. All in all, I recommend doing your own challenge, just maybe don’t commit to blogging about it every day…
