Belated 30 in 30 Finale: Days 29 and 30

Monday was Day 29, and I did a 45-minute yoga class.  I think I dozed off during Shavasana.

Yesterday, Tuesday, was Day 30, and I did another Bridge to 10K workout, which was 51 minutes of running and about 20 minutes of walking with the little bit of extra I did at the end.  I also signed up for a "Candlelight Yoga" class and attended the first session.  My instructor was wearing glitter and came across as a little hyper at first, but was such a beautiful, centered instructor during the actual class that I felt a little of my Yoga Ego melting away.  When she asked how the class went, I told her I loved it but I figured out that I needed to "stop trying to show off." We had a great discussion about our crazy brains.

Here's a great quote from her: "Our bodies represent our past, because they are made up of everything we have done.  Our brains are all about the future -- always planning, always thinking. Our only link to the present is our breath, and it's such a gift."

Really, it's Yoga Love at First Sight.

Today is actually Day 31. I did a 40-minute bike ride, which I guess counts as a makeup for the day I didn't get any exercise.  Tune in tomorrow for the winner of the $15 iTunes gift card (randomly chosen from commenters on 30 in 30 posts). I'm also going to weigh in tomorrow morning (I forgot today) and post the results. Unfortunately, I'm not feeling like I lost weight, especially after the weigh-in at the endocrinologist's.  I'm still glad I did the challenge, no matter what happens on the scale.

  3. 30 in 30 is hard. I started losing 10 lbs in 30 days, now that I am down lower, it's more like 5 lbs in 30 days. But I don't follow a strict eating diet, just because it's not realistic for me. Good for you though, your doing AWESOME!!!

  4. I tried a yoga class for the first time last night. I really liked it but I am not very flexible.
