Warrior 3 FTW

This yoga stuff is starting to really grow on me. Tonight I made it to my third class with the same instructor at 24 hour. I decided to put my mat about halfway back the room right next to the window. There was a little patch of mirror so I could see myself but not the whole time.

I was really surprised at how much I've progressed in such a short time. I think I'm starting to understand the flow of the movement which really helps. I also know where I'm supposed to end up when she calls out a pose like warrior 1, 2, or 3, or low versus high lunge. I was able to actually go into a full warrior 3 pose with my right leg as a base! I held it for probably a good 10 seconds before I started to lose my balance and had to catch myself but I was pretty proud of myself for getting my leg in a straight line behind me.

Then she had us try standing split pose. I'll take my victory with warrior 3 thank you very much!

I still haven't lost any weight, but I am really feeling good about myself. I can feel and see my body change for the better and I am starting to honestly not care about my number on the scale. I wore a black dress with turquoise tights and black heels today. The dress cuts off above the knee. I caught a glimpse of myself in the windows walking into my school building and was surprised at how nice my legs looked. I keep thinking that my reflection is making me look better than I actually do, but perhaps I should just believe what I see. Even in the mirror in yoga class I felt like my hips didn't look as wide as I imagine they do.

Things are going well.
