REBOOT & RESET
Thursday, May 22, 2014
I've been gone for a loooong time. I had to go back to work full time and with the husbands back surgeries & recoveries, not to mention the day-to-day of being a homeschooling mom, my self care dropped to the side. I did pick it back up, but in a different way than I ever have before.....I decided to work on loving myself. I am meditating and back into my yoga practicing, as well as affirmations and treating myself with kindness. I discovered some really good support in the HAES (Health at Every Size) community and I love the ideals there. I am willing to not set arbitrary weight goals....as a PCOS (read: metabolic disorder) sufferer, I will probably never be 'skinny' ever again. But, know what I can be? HEALTHY....and that is *so* much more important and a close second to being HAPPY.
So why would I return to SP if I am not set on losing XXX amount of pounds? Because I still want to track ACTIVITY and my healthy foods ( funnily enough, I tend jot to take in enough calories for my size and activity level, which caused issues and non-weight loss in the past) I do have goals....to quit drinking soda, because it is CRAP....to drink more water and to move, especially in ways that bring me joy (Yoga, Hooping, Hiking), with people I love.
My biggest goal? I want to train to be a Curvy Yoga Instructor. That's what my ticker is counting down to. It is almost a year away....so I am using this year to expand and deepen my yoga, and to figure out a way to pay for the class.....I know I can swing it. Why Spring 2015? It's my 39th year...I turn 40 in July and reallyreallyreallyreally want to accomplish this before I am 40.
Other activity-based goals floating in my head for after I reach this one? Training to be a Hoopnotica Instructor and getting to the point that I am comfortable enough to do a color run ( I suck at running, I want to build up my stamina).
