Hi Loves and Happy New Years Eve!!! Can you believe its almost 2015?! I cannot. I also crossed the 6 month mark since I started the GL Gets Fit Series. That is something that I’m also struggling to believe! So last week was Christmas…and I caved and ate a ton of delicious snacks ranging from cheesy goodness to a few Christmas sweets.
Here’s what I’ve learned. I am not used to eating that much any more. When I sit around visiting or watching tv with family, I graze. I always have. In the past 6 months I’ve realized this and purposely keep temptations to a minimum because my will power is – zero! My stomach was not happy for a few days but by the end of the weekend (as I’m writing this) I’m starting to feel better.
For Christmas I got a new yoga mat and 2 yoga blocks! YAY! A year ago – my reaction might have been…are you effin kidding me?! Yet I cannot wait to get home and get back into my daily yoga practices. This week’s quote sums up how I’m feeling after the holidays. I know I didn’t drink enough water and caved to temptation but its life – and I chose to keep munching. Its okay, I’ll get things back on track soon enough.
While my yoga this week was a pretty pathetic 3 days and less than 2 hours – my body was craving some serious me time and some serious stretching! I was going to do a 6 month check in but that didn’t happen with my measurements falling on the day after Christmas. Instead – I’m going to do some measurements after my 30 days of yoga is complete! Its going to expand into the first few days of January because I want to actually do 30 days of yoga first.
I loved visiting family and catching up with people I don’t get to see that often. Its hard when you live and work a couple hours from your home town. I’m ending post with a few moments from “back home” in rural northeast Nebraska. I hope you’ve had an amazing Christmas and an even better new year!
Thank you for reading along as I’ve crossed the 6 month mark! xo
