Turtle: Slow, but for sure
Thursday, October 24, 2013
That's what they used to call me. ( Along with Olive OIl) It's funny how I resented both of them. I see how one can self denigrate with even something meant to be a compliment.
I've been consistent with my meditation practice and being mindful thought the day. It is interesting to see the way I respond to life's struggles. Currently I'm working on Right Diligence. I find it is similar to holding a yoga pose. You need to find that sweet spot of effort and relaxing into it. It is true is seeing my eating issues also. The more I "force" myself to not eat or eat correctly the more impossible it is.
In addition, I've experienced major set backs in my workouts this past summer. First I fell running. Not long after recouping and even gaining some distance/speed I got sciatica. It was so bad I had a hard time walking from car into store. That is better, and know I'm seeing the knees might have been the culprit. I haven't gone back to running. I'm finding strength in hiking, yoga, and tread climber. I plan to add swimming to my routine.
I still struggle with cravings when I feel emotional, tired, or overwhelmed. I see it and hope to keep growing through it.
I have an appointment with Naturopth in November.
