Hi Loves, finally a more positive post. After a couple weeks of focusing on self-care and getting to the root of my issues, I think I’m ready to get up and do some sort of exercise. I’m not going to jinx it but this week I want to just work out 3 times. It could be yoga, walking, dancing.. who knows. But 3 is my goal. I’ll let you know next week how that goes!
After last week’s post about being anxious and having a meltdown, I realize some times you have to hit rock bottom to realize, you can stay there or go back up. I’m trying to come back up. I don’t want to stay there.
This week’s post is a bit more personal than I’ve been in a really long time. Towards the end of last week I had a pretty good sized anxiety attack. It was at night – but it’s hard to explain if you’ve never felt them.
Hi Loves! NINE MONTHS (almost)!!! Holy cow! I had no idea when I started this on June 26, 2014 where it would take me, how long I’d last, or if any changes would really come from it. There have been good, amazing, and depressing points along the way. Lets dig in! Continue reading
Hi Loves! In the past week I have finally completed my 30 days of Yoga challenge with Adriene! My cold from a couple weeks ago is still trying to hang on – but its not as bad so I was able to finish and did two days at a time to get it completed.
I was traveling the end of the week to a conference so didn’t get to work out as much as I wanted but I was able to carry on my streak of 5 consecutive weeks of at least 90 minutes of exercise! That might not sound like much – but I had nearly 900 minutes of exercise in January which is almost 15 Hours! Continue reading
Hi Loves! I have a more serious post to share with you this week. Since December and starting down this yoga journey I’ve read how people can experience emotions during a practice. In my 30 Days of Yoga Kula group on facebook I’ve read how other members are posting about finding themselves in tears or frustrated but I never understood – until it happened this past week. I’ve experienced pushing myself past my limits and tapping into new energy when working out for longer periods of time but that was usually in the gym on a treadmill or elliptical. Never in something like yoga. Continue reading
Hi Loves! You know I’ve been on a yoga kick for December. In mid-December the yoga teacher I’ve been following on Youtube – Yoga With Adriene, announced a 30 day challenge on her site. For 30 days she’s posting a new video to try. It started on Jan 2 and goes thru Jan 31. The videos I’ve done so far range from 25-40 minutes. They are simple and basic (so far) but also challenging enough for more seasoned yoga fans. Continue reading
