Today is day two! I have to say, I’m already feeling and seeing a difference. I know it might seem impossible, but it’s true! I feel much less swollen and more confident.
Man were the muchies hitting me today! Little dreams of chocolates and ice cream were dancing around in my head. So, I practiced my willpower today and saying ‘NO!’ to myself. Today, it worked!
Today, I begin my journey to reset my body. I’ve written about the Whole30 a few times, but plan on using this blog as an accountability partner during my third successful 30 days of whole food.
Day one started off pretty easy. I prepped by creating bacon and egg breakfast muffins yesterday so I had something quick to throw in my lunch bag. However, as the day has gone on, I’m already feeling the effects of lack of sugar. My head has been killing me and I want ALL the sugar.
I love yoga. I also love Jesus.
Nothing against the beliefs that many yogis cultivate at all, I just don’t roll that way. I’ll be honest, I tried, and it felt right for a while, but then the Holy Spirit began asking me to become focused on Him during my time on the mat.
So I struggled to find a balance between my religious beliefs and the yoga that I love so much. I finally found my niche. When I get on the mat, I don’t praise myself for getting on the mat, I praise God for meeting me on my mat.
I use the time on my mat as a prayer session. I use it to invite the Holy Spirit to meet me where I am and thank Him for the time together. Yeah, I know He’s always with me, but my mat time is a special time where we get to be face to face. If you’re looking for a good place to start, check out Caroline Williams Yoga YouTube Channel.
I’m gonna be real with you, none of this is right, or wrong, it just works for me!
What works for you?!
I’d love to hear how you deal with feelings getting in the way of things you love?
