I woke up in paradise.
Antigua to be precise, for a quick mini getaway to recharge the sunshine levels, re-awaken the energy and to start the year in the way I want to end off. Antigua could be described as a rainbow paradise with colourful cottages, tropical vegetation and aquamarine blue seas, accompanied by a languid humidity and a mild breeze.
First morning; so far, so good.
A 7 am yoga session with the family and it goes without saying I am the worst by far – less flexible and not nearly as much endurance. I won’t be daunted as I can only improve and as my 2018 word is “brave“, I have no choice but to follow through. It might not seem a “brave” endeavour but when you find something difficult it is far easier to focus on others with a guaranteed outcome.
Where I have failed on this trip is my packing.
My yoga wear is hardly suitable and definitely limited. I’m too remote for an online delivery but I can promise you I will be re-stocking and new pieces will be on my London doorstep when I return. The athleisure wear – the yoga and gym pieces – are part of the “can’t have too many” group. Do you feel the same? If the workout wear looks good and feels comfortable, the actual pain and suffering are slightly improved?
Are you very good at yoga?
I’m not and I really want to be. If you have been reading for a while, you will recognise a familiarity to my chat. I wax and wane with yoga and that is frankly not how success works. I need to be more consistent and practised in my sessions to improve. I’m more disciplined about training at the gym; somehow I need to share the mentality on all sides.
I am going with the premise, if I wear the right gear it can only help :)
Fingers crossed. xv
