Today I signed up for a 30 day Bikram Yoga challenge. The goal is 30 days straight of hot yoga but I am allowing myself a couple of missed days just in case. I am doing this to hopefully lose weight but more importantly, to develop the relationship, or lack thereof, I have with my body. I have never appreciated my body and I am hoping this yoga challenge will help me get a connection between body and soul. I also just want to like my body more. So I figure wearing next to nothing and sweating like a buffalo next to 20 other half naked people may help. Hopefully really skinny people wont always be besides me and hopefully by the end, even if they are, I wont care. I am also hoping this will keep me busier during the evening. My m.o. is to watch TV and munch all evening so now I will be forced to have an evening activity every night.
So why now? I have been exceedingly unhealthy all of my adult life. Even when I weighed 20 pounds less, I was not healthy. Last June I turned 30 and I have to start thinking about how I want to spend the next 30 years. I have decided I want to spend it appreciating all of the things in my life, including my body so I figured I might as well start with taking care of it. My first day is today so I will keep you posted!
