Tic Toc Tic Toc....

There is only a little more than 2 weeks remaining in the challenge and I'm already feeling like time has gone by too fast. I am seriously going to miss this one constant commitment, yet I'm looking forward to not having to do doubles to make up a missed class =D

A lot has happened since my last post. I have just gotten my biopsy done
and managed to go to the morning class to avoid missing yet another class. However, I may need to take another day to give my chest some extra time to heal. I am already 1 class behind so now it'll be 2, but I'm confident that I'll be able to get in some doubles before the end of the challenge. I thought there was still a glimmer of hope that I'll still be in the running for the "New You," but it is highly doubtful with my potential 6th missed class =( As Ching, fellow challenger, has been emphasizing, we need to be TENDER to ourselves and this couldn't be more important to me at this very moment. I am getting my results next Thursday so hoping for the best, but prepared to deal with the worst!

Day 37: 8am w/Tom, Day 38: 8am w/Christian, Day 39: 6:30pm w/Nafisa, Day 40: 6:30pm w/Valerie, Day 41: 6:30pm w/Jeff, & Day 42: 6:30am w/Y Thuan

So sorry that I haven't been very specific with my progress in my recent classes, but the truth is that there really isn't much revelations. My practice has been pretty solid and strong besides the occasional bad days. I am still giving my best and think there are very minor improvements, but none that I can elaborate on. I am truly just enjoying this consistent practice, looking to continue it, and making this a solid lifestyle change <3

As I am dealing with my still unknown health issues along with this challenge, I have learned that I am a lot stronger than I think I am. There are definitely moments of fatigue, but I've managed to stay positive with all the support and love from everyone in my life =)

Side note: I have just found out that this lunar (dragon) year will be a difficult one for me (dog) in all aspects, but I will continue to try and stay positive!!! Not usually a believer or superstitious, but looks like a stop at the temple is on my agenda. Also, gots to go get me some of those Asian monkey and chicken charms to carry with me as they may be helpful in diffusing some of the bad luck =X


  1. I hear you, Sara. The 'new you' no missing 5 classes rule is too harsh. I was very stressed out in the beginning just to keep my practice on track without a miss. We should tell Val that it defeats the purpose of the challenge, at least allowing more room like 8 classes. I am glad you have a stronger practice now and please stay optimistic for your health, as you know I am going through a similar health concern for my mom too. We will support each other! =)

  2. Also, Sara, thanks for offering the companion during my rough time now. I wish our practice time are more in sync so we can do more yoga together.

  3. Good for you for getting up to go to the early am clad while simultaneously juggling the doctors appointments. You are definitely a very strong woman Sara! Stay strong and positive and I have faith that the diagnosis will be benign. Thinking of you.... Hope to see you soon!

  4. You will overcome anything and everything, including not so lucky sounding chinese horoscope. You've been a trooper so far. Just take one day at a time!
