Life updates

Yoga-land: was a bomb in June.  I never made it past the 6 classes.
Planning to commit to the July 20 class challenge tonight so wish me luck.

Work: work is work. Mostly good days so I can't complain.  I start my stay-cation for the month of July in 2 days. Very much needed!

And the best news:  Just booked a random road-trip to Disney at the end of August.  Also decided to splurge on one of their resorts.  There seemed to be lots of hidden costs and overall aggravation in staying in a cheap hotel outside of the park.  And how often do we go on a real vacation? (yes, I do know that Disney is not the most relaxing place on earth, but you KWIM).

So I'm looking to share all tips Disney and road-trip if anyone has stumbled across my page and would like to share.

Hope you are having a decent summer so far too. What's new and interesting?

6 days so far...

Not good but not bad either....which is what I keep telling myself.

I've been plagued with sickness recently as well as life.

I did get to practice on International Yoga Day this year though!

I'm dragging this morning due to late night yoga last evening, not to mention I'm probably super dehydrated this AM.

That's a sign I need to put more into my body than coffee LOL.

Happy Tuesday all!

So not into this challenge

Only completed 2 classes so far. TWO! But I took a long walk yesterday after work, and that felt amazing :).

I knew going into this that June was going to be very tough.  Lots of stuff going on on the homefront.

It's impossible to feel motivated when yoga truly has to take a backseat due to life. 

I think it will be easier to commit to July, since less going on and focus this month on just getting 3 classes in a week.

I needed to start

I haven't been able to commit much so far to this current challenge at my studio. DH has worked late all week making it impossible to get to class the first 3 days in June.

However, I made it in last night for class #1.

Tough class but super relaxing.  I didn't push myself too much and just had fun.  Changed up my spot too and one of my fave instructors was teaching which helped make the class feel like it went by quicker than usual.

Late night yoga is so hard though because it totally throws off my sleep cycle.

I'm so glad it's Friday because I'm definitely going to be dragging at work today. Skipping tonight because family is in town, but planning to hit early morning tomorrow.

1 class down. 19 more to go for June, or 39 left to go for June and July.

But who's counting ;).

Long time, no post

Whoo, May went by fast. 
Can't believe my favorite season is now upon us.
I've done great at my sunshine goal this past month, but have been lazy with my yoga practice.
I decided to sign up for a summer sizzle challenge....20 classes in June and 20 in July.
I don't know how I even feel about going into it...
I do need to really make a better committment though so this will be the way to do that, even if I make it through 1/2...
Speaking of yoga...I'm up early today chugging down coffee and then headed off to a 7:30 class.
Getting it over first thing so I can hang outside the rest of the day.
Baseball for my son, then a birthday party for my nephew.
So happy the weekend is upon us. 
I keep saying this was the longest shortest week ever!

The Sunshine Project

I had to push myself to go to yoga yesterday.

It was such a beautiful day out.

Not that I was spending a ton of time outside, but was busy running around doing errands in town, cleaning the house, folding and putting away laundry.

As I lay on my yoga mat in a very small class though (I think everyone else was out enjoying the sunshine), I thought about what a long, cold, snowy, icy, miserable winter it was.

I also thought about how the weather tends to have an instant lift on our emotions. And how many of us, especially if we work FT during the day...even spend much time outdoors?

It was then that I decided why not make a new goal of getting outside for at least 15 minutes a day? Especially on those sunny days?

Take a walk in the neighborhood, sit out in the yard and read a good book....go wine tasting out east...sit on the beach...even just spend time on your front steps watching people walk by....some of these things are even free!

What are your favorite outdoor activities?

Do you want to join me in my sunshine project?

Update to last post

I did post on our social media site last night....asking if anyone would be interested in starting a more local alumnae association.  A few people expressed this at my weekend away and there was some mild interest again toward my posting.

I was involved in something like this years ago and it was a better experience.

People who wanted to be there went, less cliques and more financially savvy.  Plus it wasn't as much of a time committment.

We will see if anything comes of it.  People do a lot of talk,  but it's super hard to maintain relationships outside of our normal lives. I also have learned the burden for planning often falls on one person and it can take years even to have any success with these things.
