PS- I’m perfect!

So. I think I finally have this yoga fuel business down! I wake up, get showered, dressed and out the door, then eat pretty much non-stop from 7-9, breakfast: protein shake, oatmeal, fruit, veggies and peanut butter.
At 11, snack: some kind of vegetable- usually with salsa or peanut butter
At 4 sugar: this is critical to my yoga! I either have citrus or 6 skittles. Yes I count them, and yes. I ALWAYS stop at 6.
At 10 dinner: veggies, protein, cheese, and a 2nd protein shake if needed.

And for lunch….. I EAT YOGA! Today I lunched on headstands, fingerstands, planking and blocking for hand stands. I also took all if the pictures myself!

Today I was SHOCKED how much my regular practice had changed after just ONE Advanced! I felt more aware, in control and open. The break in routine, and added, deeper stretches yesterday really benefited every single one of my postures! It also had an incredible impact on my mental practice! Like, when teach decides to get chatty at the end of second set triangle, and I really want to pop up early like everyone around me, but my mind says “giiiiirl, suck it up! You can totally wait her out! Think how strong your legs are getting for all of the new stuff you are learning!” And then I am able to adjust my breathing and stick it out all the way to “change”. I spent all of today totally blissed out on yoga. It was absolutely euphoric and wonderful!

Oh. And PS- I checked in with the therapist yesterday and I AM PERFECT!
She asked me to gain 2 more pounds, I told her I’d rather not. And she just shrugged and said “ok. I’m willing to let that go.” The truth is, I will probably acquire her 2lbs in muscle before long anyway. No treatment program for this little yogini, YAY!!!!!!!

    • Oh. It’s ok, Debbie! I had my own list of cautions that I brought up yesterday. She said, for right now, just put it to the side and enjoy all of the good things in THIS moment. We’ll get to those reservations next week. She also put a packet in my folder with a project for if something needs to be addressed sooner.

      I really liked that answer.
