Today was another super busy day and I didn't get a chance to exercise at lunch time. I was feeling guilty and trying to decide how I could squeeze in a cardio workout before yoga. But, then I talked with Steve and he reminded me that this isn't a race. And, an hour of yoga is enough for the day. So, I listened to him and decided to go to yoga and enjoy the heck out of it.
I am so glad I listened! Tonight was a more intense class and I was really glad that I was rested going in. I think I had the best class that I've ever had. The best part was that I actually was able to do sun salutations tonight. Now, they were the ugliest sun salutations ever, but, I did them. Normally, going from forward fold to down dog is impossible. Tonight, I did it. By the time class was over, I was beaming with pride.
So, sometimes, I think I need to focus on enjoying the here and now, and getting the most out of whatever I am doing. And, sometimes, I need to appreciate that I am getting stronger, and able to do more. Tonight, I'm just going to enjoy this feeling.
