I feel like I’m in a period of rediscovery with not only running — (click here to see how I’m tackling that one) – but with everything. I think it’s a combination of the beautiful spring weather that has finally graced us with its presence and keeping myself busy with the conference and my book endeavors. I’ve always been a person who needs to be accomplishing something or I start to feel down and depressed.
This personality trait is a blessing and a curse. On one hand I love my inspired high-,energy periods but trying to be happy just “being” is challenging for me. Totally something I’m working on, but right now I welcome the burst in motivation. I’m going to need it to get through the next few weeks of conference planning and book promoting!
This morning I decided to start my day with yoga, something I haven’t done in months. Like running, I just let it fall to the wayside with my injury, promising myself I’d practice at home but never really doing it.
If I don’t GO to a yoga class (or Crossfit or whatever) I don’t do it. All you people who do workouts at home, more power to you; I just don’t have the resolve.
Side note: It’s an amazing feeling when you really truly know something about yourself, accept it and then move on. That is one of the most important things I learned in my 9 years of blogging.
Anyway, I went to this yoga class and it was hard. I mean REALLY hard. I had to take a lot of breaks and cut myself some slack. Just like running, it’s discouraging to feel like a beginner all over again BUT it’s so worth starting again. Right now I feel amazing! Loose and with a lot less back pain then I had before. Yoga is one of those things I know is good for me but I haven’t prioritized it for some reason.
My new goal is to get to class at least once a week. Sometimes you don’t need a huge commitment, just a baby step to get the ball rolling.
I can handle once a week. I know I can.
After yoga I came home and made an awesome green smoothie.
That’s 1/2 banana, a handful of fresh pineapple, as much greens as I could stuff in the blender and a few ice cubes. It was awesome! And just what I needed for an after-yoga snack.
Yesterday I made a beet smoothie!
That one is 2.5 ounces each of cooked beets, fresh pineapple, frozen blueberries plus 3 tablespoons liquid egg whites.
Both kids did NOT like the beet taste but MAN I could drink that every day!
It’s funny, I rediscover smoothies every few months or so. Right now I’m on a kick and I’ve been inspired coming up with new creations.
So overall, a great day! Just felt like sharing. :)
