My Self-Care Promise this Month

Ashley Zeal partners with Beyond Yoga and Zappos to share her self-care promise to herself this month and what her weekly workout routine looks like.

Thank you to Zappos for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

Did you know September is National Yoga Month? I just found out! As much as I want to do yoga more regularly, the truth is — I don’t. I am greedy with my workouts. If I am spending upwards of $30 on a class, and an hour of my day, I want maximum calorie burn, I want to leave there drenched in sweat. But that all comes at a cost. You guys were all so amazing when I opened up to you about my anxiety this week. Many of you recommended yoga and meditation. I got multiple messages telling me to look up yoga & cortisol and so I did….

It made me realize that I have a huge problem managing stress (check out a few of the articles here, here and here). I put a lot of stress on my body; both physical and mental. Here’s what my average week looks like:

Monday: Arms & Abs

Tuesday: Butt & Legs

Wednesday: Chest, back and, abs or legs again.

Thursday: Rest

Friday: Full Body

Saturday: Full Body

Sunday: Rest

There is no yoga, no stretching, no foam rolling — nothing that is helping to repair my body built into my schedule anywhere. I am finally seeing the bigger picture and refocusing my priorities on doing what’s necessary for my mind and body. So, next month, I am starting my membership at a yoga studio, and I am going to start with a realistic goal: one class a week. I will keep you guys updated on how it affects my anxiety, stress, and soreness!

Now to the good stuff: the outfit. You guys know Beyond Yoga is one of my favorite brands — their leggings are insanely comfy! I have been wearing them for years and the items all hold up so well. This particular set is the softest workout gear I have ever worn in my entire life. The leggings are crazy high waisted which I love! And the bra has the cutest little back detail.
