I joined a new studio a few weeks back and have been challenging my body to remember how to be strong.
It's been over a year since I have done any activity regularly and my practice shows it. I am insecure in my poses, tight in some and wobbly in others. But I am determined.
For a long while I have focused all energy on the girls. My days are spent being a mom with few exceptions.
Just like any new relationship, I have been swept up........focusing on my sweet new love and caring little for myself. Sometimes when you come out of the fog of a new romance you face a harsh reality. What the hell happened to my body?
Somehow, while I was busy with other things, my body got soft and (worse!) weak. Just because I am your typical exhausted mom does not mean that I have to look like one.
Two weeks into classes, I am beginning to see progress. I wake at 530 twice a week to take morning classes and that is an ABSOLUTE miracle. Two classes on the weekend and running when my knee cooperates- this is the current plan. Wish me luck!
To motivate continued success I purchased this. Now I need to look the part. Just discovered Solow at Shopbop. Here are my picks......Namaste.
