Hot yoga weekending

So as luck would have it, I should be able to get two doubles in this weekend.

MIL said I could drop DS off today and DH will pick him up when he gets done with work.

I'm planning to do the 3 & 5PM classes.

I also can do either the morning or the afternoon classes tomorrow.

I'm so excited because it's really down to the wire now and I don't want to risk waiting till the last minute during the week and missing out on my last class if something comes up.

I've had a great experience with this challenge this time around and it really has gotten me back into my habit of going more regularly.

It is true that it takes about a good month to change something into part of your structure and routine.

Anyone else down for lots of yoga this weekend?

What else do you have going on?

I'm writing it down to be accountable

I took off last night because I just didn't have it in me to go to the studio.

But I'm down to the wire now and must hold myself accountable....6 classes left to go.

I plan to go tonight, tomorrow straight from work, Saturday evening, double Sunday AM and then hopefully finish up completely Monday.

Wish me luck!

This is the part where there is definite light at the end of the tunnel, but it's also so easy to just give up too....

Lucky #13

I'm plugging along guys.

I did a back to back double yesterday morning and completed my 13th class.

I'm hoping to make it to my mat 3 nights this week and then double up again next weekend.

I was at a local discount store yesterday, and bought myself a new mat and some funky headbands for my practice as a reward.

I feel like I made it over the hump, so I'm motivated to keep pushing through.

Can't believe it's Monday already.

Nothing terrible going on, but I'm just not ready to go back to work today LOL.

I'd much rather be at the studio....

Challenges smallenges

So I don't feel like I'm off to a super start for this 20 class challenge. Only 8 classes down...

That said though....I am moving right along with meeting my 3 class a week challenge which has totally been my goal for 2015.

I made it to my studio yesterday, Thursday and Friday which is huge....weeknights....let alone Friday straight from always a struggle for me.

But I'm getting through it.  And I'm not calling it quits just yet for the challenge ;).

Are you a field instructor?

Are you a social work field instructor?

Are you looking for a supportive, safe space to exchange ideas, ask questions or come to a non-judgmental place to just vent?

Do you often feel isolated in your role?

Have you ever looked to bounce off ideas on other social work forums but found yourself the target of unnecessary drama from either students or even other social workers?

Then my new PRIVATE reddit forum may be just the place for you!

If you are interested in joining or just learning more, let me know.  I'd be happy to have you :)

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?
