The Secret to Getting Ahead is Getting Started

The Secret to Getting Ahead is Getting Started

I’m not sure if I did something or what but my lower back is so sore today. I can do a forward bend but if I only go 15-45 degrees, it hurts. I’ve got a heating pack on now and I’m watching Dragon’s Den/not moving till tomorrow.  I did however, still go to yoga today. 

Six weeks ago I would have probably cancelled anything that made me leave the house with this pain but since I’ve been working out I feel stronger. A couple days ago I told my yoga teacher (Sandy) how I came to class even though I was feeling blerghhh and tired and she said

“Nobody ever regrets going to yoga”

She was so right. Today I initially cancelled going to the nooner (via the app) but when I was home from work at at 11:45 I decided to just GO FOR IT. Jumped into my gear, ran out the door, and was there 2min early for the 12:15! IT FELT SO GOOD. 

There was only other person in the class with me so it ended up being semi-private. I feel like it was a stroke of luck after hustling to get there!  I’ve been going to class at least 3 times a week for just over a month and I’m so happy for finally dedicating time to myself for myself. And screen free! 

Last year I wrote about JOMO, The Joy of Missing Out and I’m still on that vibe. I’ve spent the last 5-7 years doing so many things every weeknight and lately, making time for yoga has been a really great change. I’m more mindful of the events I do go to, and I make the most of my time when I’m there. It’s like the secret to getting ahead is just getting started. 


Don’t ever feel bad taking time for yourself. Remember you can hit a reset button on healthy eating or positive habits any single day of the week. Tomorrow you’ll wish you started today. 😊

P.S. If you’re near Lower Junction and wanna join me for a class check out Yoga Yoga Studio!
