Yeah. I've procrastinated. Thought I could do it on my own.

That didn't work.

I'm back, gearing up for the New Moon on 5/28 so I can kick it into gear.

I've tried and failed so many times, I almost feel like quitting before I've begun.


I'm still hopeful.

Although I'm not blogging daily, I AM practicing every day! And some happy changes have actually occurred since the winter solstice. My mother finally entered a long-term counseling program and my BF's father is making slow but steady recovery after surgery.

As for me, I'm planning a beach vacation with my BFFs from high school at the end of February, so I'm REALLY motivated to stay on track. I've been logging in my fitness daily, but not my food and that has to change. I realize that I must be as diligent about food accounting as I am about exercising.

Wish me luck.

How are my SP friends faring so far?

  I'm glad things are getting better. I've been checking for your blog every day. I was concerned. It's great that you're practicing every day.

I took a break from practice after our so darshan challenge. My current goal is Chris Freytag's 10 pound slimdown. I am also trying to do a daily yoga practice.

Thanks again for the challenge. It's really helped my practice. I used to skip meditation and had trouble holding my breath. Now I have improved. I FELT the difference meditation adds to practice.

Have fun at your reunion!

    That's great that you are practicing daily!
I hope that I will be able to say the same at the end of January. I am trying to get into a routine of practicing Dru yoga for half an hour or more every afternoon.
That sounds very good that your mother sought counseling and that your 'FIL' is doing better.

DAY 40: End of the World

Friday, December 21, 2012

As soon as I finished my SDCK this morning, the phone rang. My stepfather was so distraught, he could barely speak for a good 3 minutes. My mother tried to kill herself last night.

She was found unharmed by police, but sweet Jesus! Can this ride get any weirder?

It conjures up old fears from the past: my mother manipulating us, the intense emotion, the terror.

At least I can look at this now with detachment. I love my mother, but I will not participate in this game anymore.

As of today, it's the end of the world as she knows it.

    I'm continuing my daily SDCK practice. That I will do at least until March 20th, the vernal equinox. It's keeping me resilient and for that, I'm very grateful. ... And for all your support and words of encouragement!

DAYS 38 & 39: Continuing Weirdness

Thursday, December 20, 2012

38: 10 SDCK, 60 mins Yoga Beauty Body

39: 15 mins SDCK, 60 mins Transformer

Is this a freaking crazy time or what? I'm treading water with the practice, hoping that the creepiness doesn't get on me! People are weird, the world is weird. I am SO grateful that this practice is keeping me level. Not that I haven't had my moments...

Yup. I've lost my temper, too. Not to the degree I would have had I not been doing the challenge, but there is definitely a strange vibe out there. And it's consuming people left and right.

I'll keep holding onto my KY lifejacket and ride out this storm.

DAY 37: Feeling the crazies

Tuesday, December 18, 2012

15 mins SDCK, 75 mins Yoga Bliss Hips, 35 mins walking

I really don't know how I'd feel if I wasn't practicing. No. Wait. That's not completely true. I KNOW that I'd be a big fat hot mess right now because all the craziness -at home, work, parents, world- is starting to seep in and makes me a little uncomfortable. A little discomfort is tolerable. I can look around at the crazy news headlines, the weird stuff at work and the aging parent care thing, and not be completely buffeted by it.

Thanks, divine beings whomever you are. I can face the solstice without falling apart.

    I know what you mean, NY. There's a lot of negativity out there right now. We just have to keep our eyes on the prize.

  Glad to see you're still up and practicing. I was a little worried when I didn't see your post yesterday afternoon.
I'm feeling a little negativity today, but much less than I would have without our challenge. Thanks again for getting me to work through so darshan!
