Unplug, tune out, and just breathe. Give your brain a rest from our over-stimulated world.
took the day off from all my freelance clients so I could have some me time. Really need to do cardio so I went for a step class that I usually enjoy but my neck was feeling stiff and each jump was like a jolt of pain in my neck. I kept it low impact but after 45 min. I gave up and walked out. Almost started to cry. I'm so frustrated with my body right now. I think the winter blues are really bad this year.
but since I still had the whole day ahead of me I went to hot yoga at noon. Another class that I enjoy and this was a winner. Gen is focusing on the basics this week so no crazy poses but each pose had to be perfect so it was still a workout. She even gave me a little extra stretch at the end. neck and shoulders are still stiff but mood is lifted. the dark cloud over my head is now pale grey.
my fitbit battery is dead, again, so no steps today.
I think I might be in love with macadamia nuts. I'm grateful to have found that lady in the green market that sells them so cheap!
Hmmm ... mucked up my days again so putting Monday's tallies into Sunday and Sunday's into Monday. Not a good start to the last
Ah! Back home, back to the grind, and little sleep. However, it has been a great weekend - good food, good company - so grateful I could share it with my Mum.
I'm so grateful for two good nights' sleep!
Up early to watch hockey. Folowed by spin class. Different teacher today but didn't help much. I think the acoustics in the spin room are really bad which makes it difficult for me to follow. Other people were complaining and they are francophones. Again I stopped trying to follow the class after a while and just pedalled. I started thinking a lot and had some very negative thoughts. I realized that spin does not give me endorphins like running or bring me to a happy place like yoga so maybe it's not the cardio workout I'm looking for.
Spent the afternoon cleaning house. I really need spring.
