Here's The Plan!

Following up yesterday's post about having a shitty practice lately...

I was in class last evening, chatting with a teacher about training. I was telling her how I was trying to do another 30-day before training begins in six and a half weeks. She told me, though, to make sure I don't kill myself with my yoga practice right up to the start of training.

"Take a week or two off beforehand. The first two weeks of training are spent getting used to the energy and the room. You want to go in craving the yoga. Best way to do that is to take a break right before you go."

I said I didn't want to have a shitty practice when I get there, and that I wanted to have everything in good form.

"The first two weeks is a leveling for everyone. People are falling out left and right. You will be no different from anyone else when you get there."

This made me feel TONS better. I will take the week and a half before training off and just focus on my dialogue. I will finish my current 30-day, and then take a little break.


  1. Cool! I'm glad you have a plan, but more important, I'm glad you're feeling like some weight is off your shoulders.

  2. Is that not EXACTLY what I already told you?! Haha. Good for you. :) Don't worry about having a "good" practice at training. My practice SUCKED for about 90% of the time...

  3. LOL! Yes, J.. it is indeed EXACTLY what you told me.

  4. I think that's a great plan! And based on your previous posts you won't feel (as) guilty leaving the Husband and focusing on getting your other priorities in order before you leave!
    -PS- I really am hoping you find some time to blog while you're gone, I really enjoy reading your blog! :)

  5. Thanks Lacey! I will definitely be blogging what I can while I am away.

  6. I don't know WHY I just realized your TT blog was here! DUH! It looks great. Can't wait to hear about your adventures!!
