Gotta stick to the plan

So as I'm going crazy here cuz I really want to be back in the CE program, I talked to one of my very close friends yesterday and she gave me some great advice, and honestly, just what I needed to hear.
She understands that I'm eager to get back in the program and truly BRING IT! But also knows my condition (with my back) and has advised me to take my time. Enjoy my Yoga journey. CE will be here when I'm ready for it again. She made me feel good about my Yoga plans and lifted my spirits about being OK with taking it "easy."
I feel good. I feel cinfident.
Soon enough, I will be back and going strong with my girl Chalene ;))
So!! Original plan... YOGA!! New plan... YOGA!! I'm gonna stick to it. No getting impatient. I need to fully recover to be strong and ready :)

Ok!! So enough of that, you all get the point, Yoga from here on out (until all better).

This morning was so nice. I set my internal alarm clock for "early," woke up at 5am and decided to go hiking. A few of the ladies from my church were going at 5:30am so I jumped up, dressed, grabbed my flashlight and ran to the hiking trail :)
It was a great hike!
Afterwards, I did Yoga with Tony Horton.
It really set my day off for a HEALTHY start. I noticed that by forcing myself to just GET UP and GO, complete my workouts first thing before all my distractions woke up ;) I was able to think clearly and take the rest of the day one step at a time. Yoga truly helped with that too.
Even my diet was good.
Smoothie for breakfast, tofurky sandwich for lunch and a salad for dinner :)

Yep!! I'm ready to do it all again in the morning! 5am baby!!

Love you all!!

I love working out first thing. You're right... it starts the day of right, I feel empowered and ready to tackle anything that comes my way, and it's just nice to not have that lingering in my head all day (i.e., an impending workout). Cheers to getting it done first thing in the morning!!!

Yay for the yoga plan... smart move!!!
