Yoga, yoga, yoga, yoga

Day 1 of the yoga challenge. Was nice. Nothing stressful. Just a 20 minute hip opening stretch session. Not much for calories but there are always many more benefits to reap from yoga (like the actual quiet that goes on in my head). I will enjoy this.

Day off from 30DS today. Which is good cause I've had a bad migraine pretty much since I woke up. Been having to fight to keep food down (sorry, tmi). Going to take something for it and crash.

I think it was a combination of heat and glare. I was out this morning collecting more documents. The set from my fiance comes in on Thursday. Oh... AND THEY RECEIVED THE PACKET AT THE EMBASSY. I'm going in for interview next week and I am stupid-happy. Nervous, but happy.

I'm also extremely relieved that I don't have to spend the week stressing about the packet. Psyching myself up for being there won't be easy but I've had to face these people before and haven't had any trouble before.

My dad says I'm silly. It's awesome that he has such confidence in me. My friends have been super supportive. My fiance sometimes doesn't know what to do with me when I'm panicking about invisible worries, lol. But he keeps me a lot more centered than he would ever understand. Even when he isn't even trying.

I was so occupied with errands and the good news that I actually forgot it was reward day for finishing my last challenge. Will have to fit that in some time.

I'd also like to take a second to thank all my regular commenters for putting up with the whining of the last few days. You guys seriously rock. Thanks for the hugs and the positive vibes. I appreciate it more than you know.

    Sorry to hear about your migraine. I suffer from them as well, but it sounds like mine maybe a different type than yours (mine are more the aura type than the instant head in a vice type, where my vision gets all splotchy and my ears ring). Fun stuff. The yoga challenge sounds like a lot of fun. I haven't done a lot of yoga but from what I've seen and heard of it, it looks like a relaxing and challenging workout at the same time. Keep up the great work!

    No prob, girl!!! Glad to be there to support you! I am grateful for you as well! I know I mentioned it before, but you gals who have been regular commenters have helped me get through a lot! I will try my best to be there for you as well... I don't plan on getting off of here anytime soon!

    Great to hear the yoga is going so well! How'd you find that challenge? I'm considering possibly trying it out at least twice a week. I know it might help stretch out my joints and really tight muscles. That's what I'd need it for. I do pilates once in a while, but it's slightly diff.

    Good to hear about the papers finally making it! Still take all that stress out on Jillian! I know the feeling to feel anxious and stuff. I tend to have lots of anxiety. Not to the point of "panic attacks", but I get REALLY tight and stiff all over my body and (I don't say this to many people because I'm slightly embarrassed by it) I also pull my hair (trichotillomania). I've had this issue since I was like... 14 or 15? I noticed that when I stopped biting my nails that I went to this for the "nervous energy". I know I can stop...but it takes a lot...and well.... one thing at a time! So, I do understand the anxiousness and stress. Let's try our best to channel it towards better things, right? Like taking care of ourselves! :-)

    Hope you have a great day!!!
