Holding steady....

Thursday, December 12, 2013

The 'good days' are linking together to form longer chains, and the bad days are fewer and farther between....starting to feel on steadier ground and enjoying a newfound sense of peace and stability. Have kept up well with yoga and LOVE the fact that the studio near me has a really broad range of classes....including regular restorative, therapeutic and entry level classes. This has made it approachable and doable for me as, incredibly for me, I found even entry-level classes challenging at first. A lifetime athlete, this is the first time I've experienced my body failing me - what a wake-up call.

I have attended class an average of 3 times per week and it has been wonderful. My pass runs out next week, and I intend to renew - it is worth it.

I'm not ready to put many demands on myself (not sure when I will be), but gentle goal-setting seems reasonable, as there are some areas where I can be more helpful to myself. Here are my goals from now 'til month's end:

* Continue yoga 3 x weekly, including at least one restorative class per week
* Add 2 brisk cardio sessions to weekly activity in addition to the 30 minute round trips for yoga
* Structure eating - i.e. regular meals and snacks - no more grazing (weight is fine, but the quality of my nutrition needs improvement - I've been nibbling a lot and know I'm not getting the high-quality nourishment I really need right now).
* Take supplements daily.
* Stay AF - boy oh boy does this help me big time!

The biggest change right now will be eating - I think I'll adopt the Clean Eating sched I used to use, just to make sure I'm eating quality and eating regularly - the predictability of that program was always really helpful.

And that's a wrap!

    Your plan sounds just right-
    we would all be wise to do those things.
    I'm so glad you are feeling better.
    I have been so busy lately- between the prep for and the birth of our new baby, which will continue for a while, helping out and doing some cooking for them, etc.- the holidays- and my work (about 5 different clients for just short shifts- not a lot of hours but so much running around!) I have been neglecting my self- care- sloppy about my eating or not eating enough, not working out nearly as much, even my stretching, which brings almost immediate bad results to my hips.
    I feel like I'm on a ride going too fast.
    DEFINITELY finding me a yoga class after xmas.

    Sounds like a good 'clean' plan that will lead you to greater health. So happy to hear your chain of good days is getting longer. emoticon
