Channeling My Inner Yogi

"Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It is learning to dance in the rain."

So today I am dancing. Or rather channeling my inner Yogi.

I struggled last week. I know the surgery is necessary. And as much as I am not looking forward to the recovery progress, I know I will be healthier because of it. But I must confess my body's reaction to the events of this past week have been very telling. Nausea. Migraines. Junk food craving. Sleepless nights. Loss of Appetite. All signs of the battle raging within.

I need my body strong as we move forward. And I need a way to calm all the questions and the unknowns that swirl in my head. My goal for this week is to stay present, balanced, and centered. All while prepping my body for what is to come.

Heading into surgery positive is just as important as heading in strong and healthy. 

So this week I will be focusing on a clean, primarily plant-based diet, combined with a daily yoga practice. 

Yoga has always been a very healing and restorative practice for me. It always quiets my mind, strengths my body, and helps me restore the balance. So while I can't go the distance with you all this week, I will be starting each day with a 30 min yoga practice. I plan to welcome each morning with 10 sun salutations sequence B, followed by 10 minutes of healing meditation.

I will be grateful for each day. Be accepting of this journey. And take solace in the strength I know this little defective body possesses. 

Let's do this!
