Path to follow

Sunday, November 10, 2013

Good afternoon,

I have just been looking at this photo which was taken yesterday and hope it will help me to sum up how my week has been...

Yesterday my friend and I randomly followed this path, but occasionally opted to wander further in the forest and were either stuck in thick mud or faced with a dead end with dense forest and wild animals. It was fun turning round and looking for the pathway until it led us back to our destination.

In comparison, this week I have tried to stay on track with my goals, balancing work and home life. Planning is key to everything, but I am not disciplined to always remain, focused, and time has flown away. Sometimes I have had the uncontrollable munchies and just had to give in, or I over exercised, as the next day there was not an opportunity. As work commitments are increasing, it is hard to fit everything in, plus have a good nights sleep!

But as each day begins, I reflect on what went well and what did not, and then I get back on track, and try not to be too hard on myself, and mindfully search for the path to all my desired goals.

    Thanks for all your pictures, just fabulous and lovely! Well, I have 2 books of yoga I follow, do Yogilates with Kathy Smith and Dr. Melissa West on YouTube and a Yoga Fusion from SP. A variety of Yoga I guess you would call it. I have to be careful because I have had skeletal and bone problems in life so I do what I can in Yoga, Pilates and other exercise so I don't injure myself. (I gave up jumping rope or anything high impact.) Its why I walk so much because its easy on my bones.
I live in Las Vegas, Nevada now so we are surrounded by mountains here. Most of the Southwest from Nevada to New Mexico has a lot of mountains. The only downside is that my allergies have been horrendous in the fall here but its calming down now thankfully. In September and October I only went outdoors if it was necessary just about because it was that bad for me. I should be okay next fall.
There are walking trails near my house and a park about 4 miles away if I want to walk over there. I also walk in my subdivision when its in the early evening which I don't mind at all. I walk on my treadmill as well since it was set up in my office/bedroom today and I can open my shutters and watch videos or listen to music off Last.FM, Spotify or YouTube. I can catch up on my TV viewing since the treadmill faces my laptop and I won't be bored on the treadmill anymore! its hard to read on a treadmill I figured out so music and TV is the next best thing~

    I just love the pictures you've been taking recently and the comparisons to life.
Whilst planning during busy periods is essential, the ability to adapt to the day is also important and you are making great strides in this. I'm trying to get my exercise done before I start the day and then, if things are going ok, in the evening I can do a bit more. If things have gone bad, then I know I have done good regardless.
Keep up the good work. You're doing great.

    Veering of the path can be fun, but being mindful to return when needed is valuable to as you wrote reach your destination!

    I love your picture, gained 2 pounds and was frustrated until I relized that I did not do what I know. This week I'm going to see my path and plan. emoticon
