I sat recovering from our long morning walk, reading blogs, checking email, that sort of thing, and thought to myself, ok, so yoga is next. Then I smiled, because there it was: the accountability factor.
And that's why I'm doing this, right? The accountability? Yes, I do believe so. At least today anyway, because today would've been one of those days I'd have let myself skip it if I weren't doing it as part of this challenge.
So, knees popping, muscles groaning, whole body wobbling against gravity, I did my yoga routine. And yes, I do feel better for it.
I do believe this will be a much tougher challenge than the last one. I abhor exercise, which is why I like yoga. It's the least horrific of all exercises. (Although I will begrudgingly admit that when my dog is seized by anxiety and refuses to walk for several days in a row I do miss it and will go without him if he's too stubborn for too long. That's what walking almost daily-- usually twice a day-- for five years will do to you.)
