A blog by ordinary people about living an extraordinary life
I am always looking for a new workout challenge. Recently I realized that I was not consistently doing yoga. So I decided to challenge myself. Could I do yoga for 100 straight days? And would these 100 days result in health and fitness benefits?
The goal of this challenge is to complete a yoga workout every day for 100 days. Since I could not expect myself to complete a 90 minute workout every day I set a modest goal of 10 minutes per day, with most days being 20-45 minutes. Some days I will have to squeeze a workout in during my lunch break. Already I have had to do a quick workout before heading to work in the morning.
I am 2 weeks into the challenge and so far the hardest part of this challenge is finding good yoga workouts. I use a combination of my P90X workouts and various workouts I have found on YouTube. I also plan to head to my local yoga studio, Yoga Moves in Reading, especially since the cold weather is here (Yoga Moves offers hot yoga classes).
So how do I feel? I actually feel that my flexibility has improved already. But more importantly, I feel less stress. I am able to disconnect and relax during my yoga workouts, and I look forward to my workouts. I can tell that the stress I carry in my shoulders has dissipated. I will keep you up to date on how my challenge goes and post some of the workouts I do in case you want to join the challenge.
