30 Day Yoga Challenge!

When I turned 29, I created a 30 Before 30 List to challenge myself to complete some things I've been wanting to do.  Now, I know most people create these lists when they are more than a year away from 30 - but I was a little behind!  One of the things on this list was to complete a 30 Day Yoga Challenge - and it is well under way!!  I'm so excited to be doing this because ever since my first yoga class, I have fallen in love with it!

I go to Soul Yoga here in OKC and have met some amazing women.  The instructors there seriously ROCK!  When I heard they were offering a challenge starting in January, I jumped at the chance to sign up and I'm so glad I did.  I have had to take a mini blogging break just to get used to doing yoga every single day but I think my body is getting used to the idea now.  Who knows, I may keep this up even after the challenge!   

This quote has gotten me through the challenge thus far - meaning when we are in those grueling yoga positions that feel like our quads are about to give out, I think of this quote and say it over and over in my head and it gets me through those moments.

A couple of the girls and I decided to paint our nails and toenails a different color every week of the challenge.  Just another little something to make it more fun.  The line up:

Here are our YogiToes so far:
Week 1 - Mint Green
Week 2 - Bright Blue
Excuse the blurry picture - it was really steamy in the yoga studio and my iPhone kept fogging up.

I NEVER would have imagined myself doing a handstand - and I still don't have it perfected - but I did one in class!  With the help of the instructor of course :)  I came home and had David take a picture of me - dang him for not getting my feet!!  I swear my feet are NOT touching the wall!

When I complete this challenge, I am going to buy myself some yoga clothes (probably just one outfit - beings that it is a little on the not-so-cheap side) from LuluLemon.  I visited one of their stores in Tulsa, Oklahoma and since then, they have built a showroom here in Oklahoma City.  I can't wait to check it out!

Yay for yoga and for making it fun with pretty toes! That's an awesome handstand. I used to do them all the time. There's no way I could now!
