thirty part two
Having pondered the next challenge for a few days, yoga has guided me into the decision: weight loss. As my body has improved, I have become acutely aware how the excess body weight hinders some of the asanas. To do this, I am following the tried and true portion controlling power of Weight Watchers. For me, this program offers what I need: tangible guidelines (point tracking/journaling) and an accurate scale, since our home one is no more than an approximation of gravitational pull.
I am actually quite excited about this challenge. Like an eager child waiting for his ice cream cone to be handed over the counter (good choice of simile, eh?) I cannot wait to see how my yoga improves as the scale goes down.
Of course, this is more than a thirty day task, so the specific challenge is actually following the program to the letter for the first thirty days. Getting started is the hardest part, so the this gives me more incentive.
I know this is not quite a resolution, per se, but I would love to hear what your goals are for 2009, or this month, or the next thirty days, or today.
