“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20.

Yoga mat and a quick nap.

Back to yoga I went tonight. 

My trainer had something come up last minute and we rescheduled for Tuesday. So I had my workout clothes packed. I stopped by home and checked on Lily and headed back out for an hour of yoga before band rehearsal. 

I hadn't been back to yoga since I fell in Jan. Once I was able to go back the musical was in full swing and yoga class didn't fit into my schedule because of rehearsals. So anyhow, I didn't know what to expect. I have done yoga at home on my own and I've don't Bob's (from Biggest loser) weight loss yoga at home, but I was still a bit nervous. 

So me and my Vera Bradley yoga mat headed on in. The strengthening and flexibility poses were just as easy if not easier than last time I went. I guess all the other exercise is keeping me up to speed. 

Then came the stretching and relaxation at the end an oh my goodness. I didn't realize how good it was going to feel. The stretching all throughout was just great. It felt so great to stretch out all the tension. 

Then the relaxation was so badly needed that I fell asleep for a second during the last relaxation pose (the corpse pose). 

I also burned over 200 calories in my 1 hour of yoga. 

I highly suggest yoga. If nothing else it's nice to do something that has the intent to keep your mind off of stress and just be sort of absent minded for lack of a better way to say it. 

When I would look in the mirror tonight to check my poses I would turn of the choir director/ wife brain with all the to-do lists and I would just focus on me and my weight loss goals. I focused on how I felt physically. 

It was amazing. 

Weigh in is postponed to Tuesday.
