Yoga, Yoga, Yoga!

Well, the official BTWG Project start date is 8 days away and the official pre-project evaluation and check-in was yesterday. I definitely could tell that although I have done a pretty good job of keeping my running routine up, the lack of a good strength training and Yoga over the Holidays showed in my evaluations.

Yoga class with Chris at Cityoga started my day, and it was TOUGH! I told Chris that one class in about 8 weeks (due to the kids schedules, family travel and Christmas & New Years being on Saturdays) makes Matt a weak and inflexible boy! I think it even makes a huge difference in joint pain, muscle stiffness and the ability to do other activities like running pain free. I even think it makes a difference for me in my focus on managing my stress and therefore my diet. It is unbelievable how critical it is to my overall wellness!

Matt! So good to hear from you. It is amazing how quickly the body regresses, isn't it? But you and I both know that muscle memory kicks back in with just a little effort! In addition to doing Chris's Thursday night yoga class (sadly, I can't make his Tues. night or Sat. morning one), I am renewing my own yoga pledge to practice more often. I went Sunday to a 12:30 Ashtanga class and could not believe how much my heart and soul and body cried out for it the moment I started the first pose! A great reminder for me that some things aren't optional - for me, yoga is a must. Congrats on doing BTWG and I look forward to watching the next part of your journey unfold. -Sherri D.

Matt, You are spot on with this. This resonates with me and having a consistent yoga practice is something I am just going to make time does help tremendously with nutrition choices and an overall well-being.

looking forward to traveling the BTWG® journey with you again :)
