We get the glow – Looking back at week four

Something I realize now that the challenge is on the home stretch: I am an impatient person. The closer the end is, the more I want to be done with it.

Actually this realization isn´t that new, and may be contributing to the fact that I sometimes quit right before a task is 100% accomplished, simply because I can´t be bothered to spend any more time on it.

 

We get the glow

 

I was relieved to learn in one of my management courses that there is a name for this behavior and that it is, actually, a desirable feature.

How come, you ask? Please let me explain: When taking blog pictures, how often is the first one you take the only one? How often do you look at the screen and tell yourself: Yes, that one will do just fine?

The answer is probably: Not often.

Lesley Fightmasters 30 Days of Yoga Challenge – The first week

The hardest thing about getting back in shape after having a baby is actually getting started. After weeks (or in my case months) of doing barely anything, even a short workout feels strange.

As days go by, you tell yourself you´ll start tomorrow. There is backpain from wrong posture, tightness in neck and shoulders from carrying the baby and a growing discomfort in your own body that makes you realize you should really, really get started.

Tomorrow.

But somehow tomorrow never comes.

When Inma from Sunshine and Glow, a fellow blogger and long time yoga lover shared her favorite Yoga videos to do at home, I knew that it was now or never.

 

Day one
Day one

 

I would do Lesley Fightmasters 30 Days of Yoga Beginners Challenge to get back into the swing of things. And to keep me on track, Inma agreed to be my accountability partner and do the challenge along with me.

So starting today (not tomorrow!) we will give you a weekly recap of our thoughts and feelings, through the eyes of an absolute beginner (me) and an experienced yoga lover (Inma).
