... breathing, gently...

Friday, February 15, 2013

I'm glad I made time to take a bath last night. I feel like in the past few days I've been telling myself to be gentle but I've actually been getting harder on myself... and it's my body that I end up criticizing the most. I haven't been at home consistently with my scale for a while... but the scales I've been on in the past few months (including my own) put me in an 8 pound range and really the numbers aren't so bad (I can remember times when even the upper number I'm seeing was a wonderful number, it's all perspective, yes?). I've just been feeling a little bit squished in my clothes, just below my belly button and around my hips, for me the most uncomfortable place to gain feel I've gained weight. Once again I know I'm stressed out when I start overly focusing on the possibility of a weight gain... I need to just breathe gently, keep eating well and exercising, drinking enough water and getting enough sleep, limiting caffeine, and just know that I am doing the best I can for myself right now.

Keep it up, sparkfriends!

    And therein lies one of my issues! I already go to yoga three times a week, I was going more and would like to go more... but when I go to yoga I do not get my work done which, even though I've gone to yoga, leaves me stressed! I'm still striving to find that balance that relieves as much stress as possible and leaves me free to get my work done. It will all work out! Thank you for your comments!!

    Yep. You need to renew your commitment to your yoga. I think sometimes we could add some fitness to our lives by just getting up and doing something active every hour or two. I have in the past and need to renew my commitment to it. That means jogging in place when you finish using the restroom for a minute or so, doing lunges and squats sporadically. Using the old resistance bands and balance ball. I am making these suggestions to you, but also to myself. The only thing I'm doing great at lately is getting in my water drinking.
