Countdown to 40 #40in2020

While I was on the yoga mat today I started counting the days until I turn 40.  In quarantine, I have lost my focus on my health.  That being said, it hasn’t gotten too out of control.   I haven’t undone in 2 months the work that I did in the first 2 months and that […]

Home: Awaken

Day 3 back at the mat first thing in the morning.  I will be honest when I say that for the last 2 days I didn’t even make it through the entire practice.  I gave myself GRACE though.  My word for the year.  That some time on that mat was certainly better than no time […]

Home: Recognize

A new year means a new 30 day yoga journey with Adriene!  Yoga with Adriene is a favorite for me.  I can do it in my own home, at a time that works for me and without any judgment.  Interested in yoga, but haven’t started yet?  Google Adriene.  Many videos on Youtube available.  Long, Short, […]

Mat Choices

“Be kind to yourself and then bring that kindness to others.” #yogawithadriene I don’t remember the last time I made it to the yoga mat.  I am not sure if I have written about it in a previous post at all.  But, I have had a hard time getting back on the health train since […]

Wellness Wednesday: Week 6

Well….Well….Well I have had a killer headache since Saturday!  So, I wasn’t expecting very much from my check-in today.  I literally haven’t cared about my low-carb eating at all and I have eaten anything and everything that sounded good. Low and behold though, I am down another pound.  That is a total of 12.2 since […]

Wellness Wednesday Week 5

Happy Hump Day! I am at a standstill with my weight. Which I am actually very thankful for. I cheated on my low-carb way of eating Sunday for the Super Bowl. It was the first time I drank beer in over a month. I also indulged in pizza, breadsticks and chips. It was all worth […]

Dedicate: Liberate

Today was day 30 of 30.  Yes, I had all day that I could’ve completed the 36 minute practice.  As I am home all day with the children for another snow day.  Something about getting it in first thing though, really does it for me. I went to the mat just before 7am.  This was […]

Best Life: Week 4

If this is your first week of 2019 reading my wellness post, you can catch up here Best Life, Best Life: One Week In, Best Life: Week 2, Best Life: Week 3.  I am not super concerned about getting myself to a specific goal weight.  I am just concerned about keeping myself healthy.  I am judging this way more […]

Dedicate: Dedicate

I am on day 28 of my 30 day yoga journey.  Yoga makes me feel different than anything else I have ever actively participated in.  It makes me feel connected, powerful and strong.  I am sure that there are a million people out there who like some other yoga practice better, but my favorite is […]

Dedicate: Power

My yoga practice today focused on power.  The power that we find within ourselves on that mat can lead to power off the mat if we allow it to. Can you imagine how great your day would be if you believed that you held the power to make it great? Whatever you believe about yourself […]
