It's been a while....

I feel like I would at confession... Father "or readers" please forgive me, it has been 2 weeks since my last blog post.  Crazy how that happens.  Life happens.  My crazy life happened.  I will be honest, it is my habit to stop blogging when I'm not "feeling right" when the universe and I are not on the same page.  Normally I love to workout, I love the endorphins, I love the challenges and the satisfaction of accomplishment.  But for the last week, I haven't wanted to go the gym.  Clearly something isn't right.  Hormones, chemicals and stress all play a part in this I'm sure.  Last night I skipped the gym, stood up a friend (who thankfully forgave me), and read on my playbook while consuming way too much popcorn (not the good kind!).  I get that it's ok to cut myself some slack and relax every now and then.  But at what point do you need to give yourself a kick in the ass to get out of bed (in my case, since I like to read in bed and eat popcorn) to get back to a regular routine.  Well thankfully I am blessed to have a friend who cares about me enough not to listened to my lamo excuses about not wanting to go to the gym.

I went to my hot yoga class tonight and even though I'm mentally exhausted and down on myself, I had the best practice I've had in like a year!  I didn't listened to the crap in my head, I just did what I was told to do.  Focus on breathing, go 3 inches lower, relax, breath, lower, let go of the crap... I did it.  For once it was amazing not to be a slave to the voice in my own head... I just did yoga!!!!

  3. It's okay to be exhausted. It's okay to be tired. It's okay to feel down. It's okay to indulge. You are still awesome, even though you sometimes need a break.
