Little Accomplishments Go A Long Way

Thursday, August 02, 2012

One of the things I love most about my new work out regimen are the new things, the little things, that I had no idea I could do. Each kind of exercise I am trying is bringing new challenges, things that I have said, "I could never do that." Yesterday in yoga class, I did an arm balance: Astavakrasana. This was something that I, when it was first modeled in class, thought, "Yeah. Right." After days of anxiety dreams and a sense of hopelessness, astavakrasana brought me the sense of peace and accomplishment I needed to pull out of my funk.

Since I have been at a weight loss plateau for what seems like ages (really only about 3 months), these smaller accomplishments remind me that I am in the game for a new healthy lifestyle, not just weight loss! Even though I am not dropping inches or pounds week to week, I can be proud of the month of July! I did a lot:

1. Ran my first 10k
2. Ran for an over an hour without stopping
3. Tried 2 new dance workout classes
4. Rode my bike for the first time in 2 years!

Now if I could just stand on my head...
