The last couple of weeks I have been absolutely loving my workout routines. I am fortunate enough to work with the owner of a local yoga studio, as well as with a few fellow yogis. So, some friends and I have been going several times per week during our lunch breaks (and some evenings) to the different classes. I’m loving it so much! There are a dozen or so different instructors so each class can be different. Last week I went to a class every day and this week I was able to reach goals with my practice that I really didn’t think was possible. They may have been small goals but they were milestones for me just the same.
I’ve also been going a little cray-cray with my boot campers but I think we’re all loving it. Although, I still think I’m the only one who’s smiling through 5 minutes of squats.
And tonight, I shaved a few more minutes off of my run time (a 5k post-yoga, pre-Zumba run). I’m feeling fantastic!
Last year I was struggling so much with the pain of my tarsal tunnel that I didn’t think I’d be running too much, nor did I imagine that I would get so much better. But I stayed with it. Like the caption above says: I took a deep breath and started again…and again and again. Did I mention I feel fantastic?? I really, really do.
And you will too! I know there are days you want to give up. Days that you don’t think the struggle is worth it. But it is because you’re worth it. Your health and your self-love is worth it. So stick with it. Keep taking those deep breaths and keep starting again.
