I am feeling better than I have in years!! What a Roller Coaster the best couple of years have been. A wedding, 3 layoffs (one for hubby, 2 for me), relocation, and house sales/purchases. New schools, jobs, friends, oh my! The fall was a nice break - laid off stuck at home, but time to unpack and settle in, and let my fitness fall apart. Guess what - it doesn't take long at all. So here I am back on Spark again and here to stay. Since kicking myself back into gear mid December I have discovered how much fun it is to have a fitness community!
Fitness wise, I have always wanted to see my abs!!
I want to acheive balance, physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually.
Life long goal, to someday have my name mentioned in the same sentence as Charles De Kunnfy.
And on the mommy front to raise the best little gentleman I can "Be a simple kind of man," is my theme song.
I am tracking everything!! Just like money trickling out of the bank account on little snacks and pit stops, the calories seem to sneak up. Health fitness, seems to go hand in hand with financial fitness, and they both help with mental fitness.
In order to stay focused my mainstay exercise is Yoga - it can be meditative, it can be healing, or sweaty, or strengthening, and all of the above at the same time. I have found that it helps me laugh when my son messes up the slip covers instead of yelling, and improves my riding seat even when I haven't had a lesson in 2 months.
I have extremely ecclectic tastes from Dj Jazzy Jeff to Clanad, Moby to Wierd Al Yonkovic. I just go with the flow and like whatever fits with my present mood. One of the things that has been a bigger detriment than help, and maybe others can relate, is that I am a perfectionist. Having a four yr old and an hr commute 1 way has forced me out of it a lot, but it certainly exlains a great portion of my draw to Dressage.
