I woke up bright and early this morning to flip all of my calendars to "March" and get a workout in before moving on to work, errands and family responsibilities. This drive to start the month off with a 30 minute yoga workout instead of a bucket of doughnuts came from talking to my most beautiful friend, E, about her firefighter training. After our chat last night I decided that if she can get up in the rain, sleet, hail and snow to run 5 miles a day then I can certainly do some Warrior Stances for a half hour in the comfort of my warm and cozy living room.
When I'm feeling discouraged it often (if not always) helps to know that I'm not the only one trying to get a smaller bottom. There are many others out there sweating on sidewalks, treadmills, monkey bars and in swimming pools in search of a more fit self. It makes the whole early morning yoga endeavor seem like part of a movement far bigger than me. Together, we can find fitness!
