Instead of avoiding pain, instead of wishing life wasn't hard sometimes, instead of cursing the setbacks - welcome all of it.
The struggle is what produces growth. Resistance is what produces flight. Pain is a wonderful teacher that, if used properly, shows us the way to bliss. - Mastin Kipp, founder of The Daily Love
Today's words of wisdom that hit home are from Mastin himself. Yesterday just felt like a regular day. I had no woes about saying "no thank you" to that bagel in the breakroom or to the cookies on the cabinet in front of my desk. I was full before I finished my lunch, throwing out the last bit; a first in this journey. It wasn't a struggle at all.
All day I wavered back and forth if I would give Bikram a go again so soon, but decided that I would take the evening off. And I think I needed it - my body was so lazy while my mind was buzzing.
Hopefully this evening I have some more energy and the courage to go - I bought myself some yoga shorts and new fitness clothes are always a little motivator! ;)
I took my measurements this morning, and I have lost an inch in my waist and an inch in my hips - more evidence of no more bloating!
