Hey friends, the journey continues!

I am back home from Japan and back to the grind of work.

I’ve realized since returning how many hours I log at my computer, and how repetitive my diet is when left to my own devices. [click to continue…]

December Fit Focus: Week 1

Week one on my fitness challenge has been a learning experience.

It’s funny how we hold onto habits that don’t benefit us. I’m becoming really aware of when I will snack or overeat, how much unnecessary time I spend on the computer, and how much better I feel if I sneak in some extra movement into my day.

December Fit Focus: The Motivation

My friend asked me a great question this morning: what motivated you to get into this?

I was flooded with a million thoughts.  The first one was an image of myself building the hippie yoga retreat over a year ago.

I remember being surrounded by a rainbow of characters from all walks of life.  I observed what made them special and what made them happy.  They all had some kind of gift to share in terms of music, skill, or energy.  They were all also strong, healthy and vibrant.

In this situation, and every other situation where I was travelling and vulnerable, I found myself wishing I felt stronger and healthier physically.   [click to continue…]

December Fit Focus: Day 1

I had a rough sleep on Sunday night which is never great when you’ve got a busy day ahead.

But I woke up excited to get started on my plan.  After an indulgent birthday week I’ve been craving more regularity in my daily schedule and love having an outline set up for me. [click to continue…]

December Fit Focus

Getting back into health and fitness has improved outlook on life.

It has helped me realize my strength.  I know that when I reach my limit, I can go a little further.  That when the hill seems to high or steep to climb, I just need to re-focus and move.  I’ve realized that setting goals has and always will be what motivates me.

With this in mind I’ve set up a 7 week plan to reach new fitness goals.  I want to continue to grow stronger and see what I am capable of.

By Christmas time I will have a few weeks to enjoy all good things in moderation, and in January I will set new goals.  My long term goal is to carry my strength and healthy lifestyle through my thirties and beyond.

Good Vibrations

“Be around people who make you feel like your heart is exploding, you could be levitating, and you forget what time it is. Human connection and feeling supported are integral to feeling like you are not alone, because you aren’t. Often anxiety arises from feeling like we have to take care of things by ourselves, that we must go it alone or that life is every (wo)man for (her/him)self. This is all bullshit. We are all here to support each other, we’re all struggling, and we all deeply need each other. Being an asshole is a joke. Surround yourself with people that make you feel good, that you admire, that do things that make you laugh, that make you tea and encourage you stand on your head.”
