Hi Loves! This past week has been nuts! I feel like I’ve been running in circles but I know we all do at some point. I was also feeling kind of run down, I blame allergies. Ugh – its harvest time in Nebraska…dust and dander does a number on me!
Bad news – I missed 2 days of reaching over 10,000 steps – and I still took my day off on Sunday…so 3 of 4 days in the past week, I didn’t meet my steps goal. That being said, I’m still on track for setting a new step record for myself.
Since its been nuts – I only been able to do yoga twice. That makes me sad. At the time, I try to juggle everything I need to do and get my steps goal…yoga got pushed aside. In hindsight – I missed my yoga practice dearly…I get a sense of calm and clarity during my practices that I cannot seem to get anywhere else. This week I vow to work on getting yoga in at least 3 times. Its another stacked week but my body needs to uncrunch and stretch. I miss it.
I picked this week’s quote because yoga does make my soul happy. I can achieve such peace and calm from a daily practice that I need to do it, I crave it. My goal is to take a step back and remember the little things and carve out half an hour to get my yoga in AND then my steps in. Its so easy to get in a pattern of work, walk, eat, sleep, work, etc…yoga is a time each day where I “shut my brain off” and just take in the present moment.
Lastly – I didn’t gain this week, and I didn’t lose. I did eat some unhealthy foods so I’m happy to hold my current low since starting this journey. (Small victories!)
I hope you all have a wonderful week – and next week I’ll have some new numbers to share!
