Gemma Posted January 1, 2020 Report Share Posted January 1, 2020 Namaste, Druids, I'm Gemma, your basic 53 year old mother of three, grandmother of two, writer, dogmom, and educator. I normally challenge with the Warriors, and do I very much love the picking up and setting down of various iron things. I've been absent from the forums (and the gym) for the past two months because <insert long list of work/life stuff here>. But my physical self needs movement, and my mental self needs accountability partners, so I am making space for this in my life again. The work/life craziness is not scheduled to abate until the end of February, so I have chosen to not kid myself with unrealistic promises about getting back in the gym. And I am not falling for the one about working out at home - which I have oft promised and oft failed in times past. It simply does not work for me and I have yet to figure out why. What I do believe I can realistically be consistent with is yoga, so that is what I am doing. I have a good track record of Sun Salutations in my morning routine, so I know that is possible. I just signed up for Yoga With Adriene's 30 day January program titled "Home," to see if I can realistically do more without dreading it and/or seeking excuses to skip "just this one day." So that is it. That is the whole of my goal for this challenge. Yoga every day. I may not do the full program every day (they vary from 18 minutes all the way up to 45-ish, some days I will simply not have time for that) but I will show up and do what I can do. 8 Quote “To see that your life is a story while you're in the middle of living it may be a help to living it well." -Ursula K.
