Phew friends. I set out yesterday to do at least an hour of yoga and also capture the last week of #yogaaday poses that I couldn't get to since I was in a small hotel room with limited floor space. After looking at the photos, I had a mega breakdown. I started sobbing like a kid who had their lollipop stolen from them. It was crazy.
So many of the #yogaaday photos have made me look at my body in such a positive way. My latest workout video makes me feel amazing when I watch it. These photos from yesterday made me feel like a completely different person, in a bad way. Rationally, I know I couldn't have gone from 100 to zero in the single week I've been gone. My eating has been off with traveling, and I'm extremely fatigued mentally and physically. These things along with harder poses and an unflatterng outfit just made me snap.
When I looked at the photos again this morning, it was still rough. But it's temporary. Call it angles or bad outfit or water retention or whatever, I just need to get over it and move forward. I just wish I didn't have such a crazy, instant reaction.
For those interested, #yogaaday is continuing in November! I'm going to continue it as it's been much more positive for me than negative. It feels great, and you may surprise yourself along the way. Details and poses can be found here.
