I am in the middle of week three of 30-days of yoga and vegetarianism. I am doing great with the veggie eating, but I had a hard time at yoga again last night. Really wasn’t into it, and really didn’t feel strong at all. I felt downright weak in fact. Even when standing straight up, my legs were shaking unless I locked my knees, which is never a good idea. I complained to Ryan about the light headedness and the overall feeling of weakness, and he blames my lack of meat. I wonder if that is it? I know I should be drinking more water too. Maybe I am just getting a little burnt out from exercising 6 days a week for the last two and a half weeks. Not sure what to change, if anything. I am planning to just keep pushing through. We’ve been busy in the evenings, so haven’t had much time for trying new recipes in the last week or so.

Hey Sweetie, hang in there! It could just be that you are tired. 6 days a week is a lot for anything. And you weren’t doing something 6 days a week before you started this self-challenge. You might want to check your food intake and see if you are still getting good amounts of protein- (not sure if you are doing dairy and eggs but cottage cheese, greek yogurt and eggs are all good non-meat sources of protein and quick and easy).
