I've completed week 7 of the Yoga Burn Total Body Challenge, with some modifications, and I'm happy that I've actually come this far. That was not obvious when I first started out!
This week I'm on holiday, and even though I could have continued doing my work-outs while I'm away, I've given myself permission to hit the pause-button this week. Why? Because I need to be able to relax completely this week and not put any pressure on myself about anything.
I know I'll pick up the routine again when I return home. I'm not saying that you should follow my example. If you know that dropping your exercise routine (whatever that is) will make it very hard for you to pick it up again when the holiday is over, then I strongly suggest that you stick with it no matter what.
Because it's good for you, and if you're in a good flow now and has found a good routine, then by all means: Keep going! Consistency is the key to success, whether we're talking exercise or business or whatever. So you go, girl!

I'm back from my trip, but I still have a week's holiday, so I'm still kind of in holiday mode. However, I did pick up my Yoga Burn routine on Monday like I said I would, so now I've started Week 8.
But I found it really hard on Monday morning and had to modify a lot. Also, as I was doing a "downward Dog", I felt something snap in my heel, like if something went out of place.
So today I didn't do the routine, because I don't know if I should. Maybe I'll do it this evening instead, or at least a modified version.
I feel that I've learned a lot about yoga during the first 7 weeks that I've been following this program. So I can always keep doing it, but maybe just put together the moves that I feel work well for me, and not necessarily follow the exact routine that Zoe is doing this week.
Yeah, I think that's what I'll do, and then move on to Week 9 and see what the challenge is then. I really want to see this through and do all the 12 weeks, even though I've only done 1 round of exercise per day, 3 days a week, and not 2 and 3 rounds like I'm supposed to do in this challenge.
It's challenging enough for me to do 1 round x 3, so I just have to keep doing that until I find that I can take it a step further. Consistency is key, like I've said before. Better this way than nothing at all!
