Falling into a laze

I took off from class on Tuesday after 3 days on, but yesterday night I stayed home for no good reason.  I'm also concerned about making it to the studio tonight.  I was woken very early by my son and didn't go back to sleep.  We are also supposed to get yet another crazy weather situation.

I'm trying to stay positive about this challenge....send me good vibes all.

In the meantime, my 3 class a week challenge will always be my goal and I find that easy to meet even with my crazy, busy life.

Got through first two days

and practiced 3 days in a row if you count this past Saturday.

I actually wasn't planning on going last night but with the given weather report, plus my son has a doctor appt after work today, I decided to just get my yoga in so I could take a rest tonight.

I don't know where I even found the strength from in my last class.

I had a very choppy sleep the night before and felt blah all day at work too.

My stomach also was not in great form (probably due to the heavy leftovers I ate for lunch).

That's the amazing thing about this yoga though.

I got to practice with a friend I haven't seen in awhile and there were also a couple of first-timers directly behind watching me.  Maybe that's where my energy came from?

In any event, I feel really positive about this challenge this time around and think I can finish it.

I haven't always felt that way going into yoga challenges.

Happy Tuesday my friends! Monday is behind us as well as the struggles we may have faced with it :).

Day número uno

begins this afternoon, and wouldn't you know's snowing super heavily outside.

I'm not going to let that discourage me though.

I'm planning to hit the studio this week today, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday.

Let's see if I can keep my committment since I put it in writing. 

Next week will start on Sunday (I have family stuff Saturday so not sure if I will be able to make it to the studio).

Sunday I will choose what 3 weekdays I will commit to my practice.

How's your weekend going?

Any challenges you are committing to this month?

Perfect timing

for this challenge to start.

I've been beyond tired and stressed this week and have been sadly avoiding the studio as a side-effect.

No one has to convince me though getting back into my yoga routine will be a huge lift to my spirits.

And it's going to be March!!!

We should place bets of when the warm weather will be back :).

Not a super great week for yoga

I only made it to the studio 3x this past week....thought it would be more since my son was away.

But, 3x a week is still my weekly goal so I made it!

I did sign up for an upcoming 20 class challenge in March.

I think it's perfect timing, especially with this icky, awful weather.

It is finally in the 30s here which actually feels like a heat wave believe it or not.

I really don't know how people do it who live in climates where super cold is normal.  

How is your weekend going?  I'm skipping yoga today because I have a family party and would only be able to make it to the morning class.  An excuse, I know but I've been running all weekend so far and kind of want to veg around the house, go to Target and catch up on some other stuff before heading out this afternoon.

Will try to get back to the studio tomorrow night though.

It snowed again last night.

I have to go back to work after 3 long days off.

In the cold and snow.....

After a week away, I made it to yoga last night though.

And have endless possibilities to go the rest of the week too, so that's positive.

Now I have to figure out what the heck to wear to my job today besides my new waterproof boots!

Someone send warm weather PLEASE!!!

I can't take this anymore!

Ridiculously cold!

OK I know it's winter Wah Wah Wah but it's still been ridiculously cold here in the northeast. I'm so over this weather and ready for spring.  I think the daily forecast also hasn't done anything positive for my mood (or anyone else's for that matter).  It's tough being cooped up inside and I'm not one of the few who will venture out into this wind.

It also doesn't help that I've been crazy busy this past week and missed out on my hot yoga practice. I'm definitely feeling the negative effects from not being in class.

Today we are planning to brave the cold and wind and travel upstate for the day.

My son is going to spend the week with my parents, since he has off for winter break.

Tomorrow I have off from work for the holiday, but I have a training in the am for my new contractor position. I'm going to be doing some adjustment counseling and maybe some other stuff as the need arises.  

I absolutely plan to get back to the studio in the afternoon though.

I'm also finally starting to shake the craziness of the past week in Socialworkland.

How's your weekend going? Is it ridiculously cold where you are? 

Any tips to make it through the next couple of months of bad weather?
