Day 22: Yoga X
Yoga X kicked off the first day of rest week. I had a strange burst of energy come half way through and I was doing poses that I never thought possible. I even held crane for a 5 second slow count! I blew through Yoga Belly Seven with no problems. Talk about spidey powers. By the end of the work out I had to have shed ten pounds in sweat. I feel great.
Diet went well. I treated myself to a top sirloin steak and egg beaters for dinner. TONS of protein. I have a little bit of homework to do before bed. Tomorrow is core synergistics. We will see what that means… I am excited to move forward and get on to the next phase. Bring it!
Tip of the day: Take baby steps on tough exercises like crane. Here is how my crane pose progressed:
Yoga X Week One – Child’s Pose
Yoga X Week Two – Feet on the ground/head on a block
Yoga X Week Three – One foot on the ground/head on a block
Yoga X Week Four – Short 5 second crane pose
Hang in there and try a little more each week. You can do anything.
