Perfect being back

With my new crazy schedule (I'm seeing a few clients now in addition to FT job) and just life things going on, I realized I haven't been to the studio in 2 weeks. This feels like an eternity when you're used to going at least 2-3x each week.

I made it a goal to get back today and I was so glad I did.

Not perfect postures, but it was the perfect class and I now feel so refreshed and alive.

Another student also told me I look really great.

I needed to hear this because I've felt very blah lately. I had a doctors appointment yesterday and they weighed me and I didn't like what I heard.

Tonight going to a house party to visit a bunch of people I haven't seen in a very long time, so it should be nice.

Tomorrow morning I'm going to attend my first Out of the Darkness suicide walk.

A friend who is involved told me about it and I thought it would be a supportive way to help one of my clients who lost a loved one to this.

My goal is really to just walk around the resource booths to find out what kinds of services exist in this area.

Anyways, I hope you all are having a lovely weekend and maybe even getting some yoga in too.

Who covers for you at work?

Trying to plan vacation for the spring to make life easier on everyone (not to mention I'd be happy going away sooner), but learned last night if we keep this vacation time, I'd need to pay the trip off in full the day after Christmas.

Um, don't think that's happening.

BTW, anyone take a cruise to the Bahamas with a child lately?

Looking for feedback...

Well I made it thru Monday....

My student meeting wasn't as terrible as I made it out to be in my brain.
I have one after work client out of the way for the week.
It's Tuesday and I have a fun group activity planned that I came up with on my drive to see my client yesterday.
Anyone remember that song from the 90s Wear Sunscreen?
Still have much to do but for some reason, when Monday is over, life doesn't seem so overwhelming.
Fingers crossed I make it back to my mat this week too.
Yoga attendance started out great this month but that has slowly ended.
I also don't think I've taken an evening walk in awhile either.
Wanted to last night but there were no street lamps on and I'm chicken with the rumor of the clowns running around lol.

I need a 3rd weekend day

I'm so not in the mood to go into work today.
I have lots of student drama going on and I just don't feel like dealing with it.
My feelings at this point basically are, if you aren't happy, move on.
Let's not be all "social workey" and try to talk it out.

I also have about 12345678910 things on my plate right now outside of work so this isn't helping my mood.

I need a vacation from life.

Reflecting back on my blog, I see this has become a pattern.

My new thing

Is taking evening walks around my neighborhood.
Very relaxing and you never know who or what you will see after the sun has gone down.
I wish I could yoga each evening but this is too hard to do at home and it's often a PITA to go to the studio during the work week.
I love being out in the fresh air though, moving my body and clearing my head.
It's pretty much the same effect as being on my mat.

I worry when my coffee doesn't taste great first thing on a Monday morning.
Is this a bad sign? LOL.

Cheers to having a relaxing weekend though.

A yoga class on Sat+Sun.

Was feeling a cold coming on yesterday (it hurt a little to breathe!) and by the end of opening breathing in class I felt fine again.

I really believe this yoga works for so many things we struggle with in life.

I'm putting it in writing that it's my goal to be at the studio this week on Wed, Thurs, Fri.

Happy Monday all!

Getting my inner color back

I picked up some shimmery colored pencils yesterday at Five Below originally to use at work this week.  On a whim though this afternoon I passed a stack of my own coloring books on a shelf in my kitchen I probably haven't opened in a few months.  So I've been sitting on my back deck for the past hour soaking up the sun and working on an easy Mandala with the new pencils.  Forgot how much I love to color...especially when I'm NOT at work.  And coloring really does help to ease all kinds of anxiety.
