With rehearsals and my plague from last week, I couldn’t make it to yoga class. I was on the fence about going while sick when I was free on Thursday night and opted out. Boy I am glad I did. Sunday night went fine for the most part and the eight days away didn’t seem to affect my practice-I even progressed to the next level in one pose which was exciting (Proper form toe-stand for those who care. My awesome yoga place is very much into being in correct form and not fudging, which I love because I know a few years ago I was doing toe-stands at other places before I should have been). I digress. The class went fine as a whole, but I noticed I kept getting a little dizzy and my vision would go black after each pose (kind of like when you sit up too quickly). Then it hit me. Hello- Bikram is done while only breathing in and out the nose and I was still stuffy. Yes, BB30, blurry vision prevention begins with BEING ABLE TO BREATHE. So, I snuck in some tissue time here and there and I was in much better shape. It was tough though. I can’t imagine returning to class any sooner, so my instincts were right!

This month will be very challenging schedule-wise with rehearsals, trying to get in as much Bikram as possible, squeezing in a few additional rehearsals for a fun late night performance I will be doing, and of course working a full time day job, so I have to be on top of my game with good food choices and lots of hydration. Once I hit the second week of October I will be able to be an exercise fiend, but until then I will just have to do what I can. I only have about two months before I will go on vacation and sport my scandalous bikini (amongst others), so I have to keep my eye on the prize!!
