Day 21

Day 21, Class 21

Ah, the ups and downs of Bikram yoga! Tonight was definitely a down. I had a terrible headache last night and felt a bit fragile this morning so I didn't go to class until late this evening. I had to drag myself there. I've been feeling a bit out of sorts today. My skin looks absolutely gross - I have 3 nasty pimples on my face which is not normal for me. I feel like I'm going through round two of detox or something. Ick. Felt like crap in class tonight. The heat was getting to me and time was dragging and I was hot and not happy so the instructor was annoying me. Ugh.

I guess now it's time to leave my practice on my mat and live in the now. Got a couple of new projects in the works that I'm pretty excited about. And I've got some tv to catch up on. Here's to hoping tomorrow's class will be better! Namaste

Echo echo mckinley. Like an instructor said, "Yoga practice, not yoga perfect".

Thanks for the comments. So true - it's yoga practice, not brain surgery :)
Will get back on my mat again today!

Hey keep up the good work!! If you're going everyday- don't forget to drink a lot of water during the day... sometimes if you're not flushing your body out enough with water, your skin has to do it for you!
You can put lemon, sea salt, and honey in your water for electrolytes.

Thanks Maggie! I'm going to give the lemon, sea salt and honey a try - it's probably better for me than the chemicals of Emergen-c or other products. I am trying to drink lots of water, but I am finding it challenging to stay hydrated when I'm going to class every day. Checking out your blog now... enjoying reading about your yoga journey.
