Lemon Poppyseed Pancakes

I have a confession.

Remember my Summer Bucket List? Well, I failed on something. And I’m not going to restart it. Let me explain.

On there, it says “Do 30-Day Yoga Challenge.” Well, I had been going strong. I had finished 16 days, going to yoga classes every day except one, and I did yoga at home that day. Then, I started getting tingling in my inner heels.

Now, I don’t consider myself a hypochondriac or anything like that, but when something goes awry, I kind of get nervous. I just have this massive, irrational fear of doctors. Really it’s just a fear that they will tell me I can’t exercise. Like when I went to the doctor 5 1/2 weeks ago and haven’t really exercised my legs since.

So, I said I was going to just do a light cycling class – and when I say light, I mean I barely adjusted the resistance and never stood up and everyone thought I was either a total woos or deaf – and some yoga at home. Then. I. Forgot. It was my mom’s birthday and we did dinner and I wrote a lab report and went to bed. Without doing yoga. I remembered at midnight and frantically texted my friend for reassurance that I’m not a total failure. I feel like 16 days is sufficient? Even doing yoga for 14 days in a row is spectacular. Right??
