The 30 days of my challenge

 

My 30 Day Challenge officially ended Thursday night and I couldn’t be more happy!

 

Me with my celebratory 30-day challenge bubbly! Thanks Tiffany!

 

Well, that’s not entirely true. Trust me, I’m just as surprised as you are. As much as I enjoyed the high of conquering this unexpected challenge of a challenge, its got me super worried. If I stop doing yoga everyday what’s going to happen? All the work I’ve done, will it just disappear if I miss a day? What have I done!?! I think I’m even more an addict now than I was before (if that’s even possible). What do I do?!

Thankfully there is Rachel Kess — be like the Samurai — was the advice I received.

Samurais apparently spend their childhood to early adulthood training, basically from the time they are 8 to about 21 they train. Then they stop and it’s not until at least another 10 years before they begin to train again. Rachel you are so inspiring and random for knowing this. Either way, I discovered the reason for a major break is that the mind needs time to train as well. Physically you can only do so much until you begin to plateau. But, growing a deeper understanding of yoga is a mind/body connection, much like samurai training, I guess. So it’s totally okay to take a body break. You may not fell the exact same after your break, but you’re body will pick up where you left off rather quickly. Thank goodness for that!

I figured I’d want to die before taking another yoga class after day 30. I am still surprised I actually survived and still like yoga. So my plan now is to take a break from yoga for the weekend, then back at it on Monday. We’ll see how that goes.
