Happy Monday, bloggies! 😎
So, Ecto randomly starting working this morning. Wtf!?! I’m obviously happy, but it’s still very strange. Let’s just hope that it keeps working! I don’t think I can deal with another technology breakdown.
For breakfast this morning, I reheated a piece of Breakfast Polenta Pizza in the toaster oven. It was so tasty with a lightly-browned, toasted top. Mmm! Living without a microwave actually hasn’t been that bad, but I still think we’re going to buy one.
On the side, I had some cantaloupe.
And, iced coffee with vanilla soy milk.
2010 Yoga Challenge
Last year, on Carrots ‘N’ Cake, I hosted a 31-Day Yoga Challenge where I challenged myself and CNC readers to practice yoga for every day of March. Over the course of the month, I really enjoyed the experience– the poses became easier and my flexibility increased, and soon I found myself craving yoga, especially at the end of a hectic day. However, in the final week or so, I felt obligated to practice yoga because of the Yoga Challenge, which didn’t make the experience completely enjoyable for me. I disliked feeling that I had to practice yoga. So, for this reason, the 2010 Yoga Challenge is going to work a little differently.
This year, if you would like to participate, I encourage you to set your own goal(s) for the Yoga Challenge. So, if you already regularly practice yoga, you might want to challenge yourself to practice everyday for the month of March. However, if you’ve never done yoga or don’t practice frequently, maybe you will challenge yourself to fitting in one session per week. It’s totally up to you!
My goal for the Yoga Challenge is to practice yoga for at least 20 minutes two times per week. I love yoga, but for some reason, I just don’t practice regularly. Hopefully, challenging myself to 2 sessions per week will help yoga become a permanent practice in my life.
Last year, readers left comments about their daily practice on CNC to share their experiences with others, ask for advice, and keep themselves accountable. Feel free to do the same thing again this year. As a yoga novice, I found this especially helpful. Just leave your comments and questions on any blog post during the month of March, and be sure to keep your eyes open for other people’s Yoga Challenge comments.
To kick of this year’s Yoga Challenge, OpenSky has offered to give CNC readers a deal on Aurorae Yoga Mats. Just entered Yoga10 at checkout to receive 10% off. Wouldn’t a new yoga mat be a great way to kick off the Yoga Challenge? 😉
