Guess What Day It Is!!!

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Have you seen that Geico commercial with the obnoxious camel? If not, check it out....I'll wait. See? Hilarious! That's exactly how I felt today. Thanks to the magic that is Benadryl, I was able to get a full night's sleep last night. I have been fighting a cold so, naturally, it has been almost impossible to sleep. I kept waking up every few hours because I couldn't breathe. But last night, finally, I got to sleep all night!

Today is day 20 of my 100 yoga challenge. I was inspired by the amazing stories at Give It 100. I figured if they can do it, so can I. Yoga is one of those activities that I love, but I feel is very difficult and frustrating due to my hip issues. I decided to work past that and focus on small improvements. I'm already starting to see changes.

The breathing techniques that I've learned in yoga have helped me to deal with my stress and anxiety. Today I was even able to ward off an anxiety attack in my cubicle by taking deep, relaxing breaths. I've also noticed that I'm walking along a little bit better. I know that I will never be able to fix my hips with just yoga, but any improvement at this point is a big deal! I'm hoping that by the end of this challenge, I'll be able to tie my own shoes like a normal person.

Wish me luck! I'll try to keep you guys updated more regularly.

    I really think it is time I start doing some basic yoga . I am under so much stress that just the breathing might help now

    Have a co-worker who frequently gets his chain pulled, as it were, over those Hump Day commercials - while his name is not the same as the one who is frequently asked the question (Mike, I do believe) by the camel, his name *does* rhyme somewhat, so he gets queried a bit.......

    I recently received a mass-mailing by Geico with a picture of the camel and the "Guess what day....." question, with *my name* printed three times alongside - it's the mass snail-mail version of "Mike"'s query........doesn't flow quite as smoothly with *my* name, though......

    Best of luck with the yoga. 100 days of anything is a big commitment. Kudos.

    Geico also has a deal with one of the movie chains and the camel makes an appearance for "movie day" bugging one of his office mates in the theater : ) I love that camel.
