I cannot believe it is the last day of October. The holidays are right around the corner and 2011 will be over before we know it. This has been a big year for me. I completed yoga teacher training, received my personal trainer certification and made a huge career change. It’s all sitting a little heavy right now and I’m feeling a little overwhelmed by it all as the month comes to a close.
Mostly, I am feeling reflective and in disbelief that I’m in this place at this point in my life. As the year winds down, I hope to continue to evolve into the person that I want to be in this new version of life. Every day is a different adventure and provides a valuable lesson.
I’m celebrating the end of the year by committing to a 62 day yoga challenge.
The studio where I practice and teach is hosting a 62 day challenge and asking yogis to commit to practicing every day through the end of the year. On average, I practice 5-6 days a week but for the last couple of weeks I have been practicing every day and it’s been amazing. So my challenge is going to end up being more like an 80 day challenge. 😉
I’m really looking forward to finishing my year the same way I started it…focusing on my yoga practice.
All that said, Happy Halloween! I hope it’s been a fun day for everyone. I was up and at ’em doing the normal Monday thing – 6 a.m. BodyPump! I also practiced yoga and taught a yoga class and a yoga private.
Lunch was a salad with spinach, leftover roasted butternut squash, goat cheese, walnuts and dried cranberries with homemade honey balsamic dijon vinaigrette. I also may or may not have eaten half a cupcake.
I was super unmotivated to cook dinner tonight when I arrived home from teaching. Brandon had been holding down the fort with the trick or treaters so we decided take out would be easiest. We picked up Thai.
Coconut soup with tofu and veggies and pad thai with chicken and shrimp. Plus, a beer to wash it all down.
Time to turn off the computer and hang out with the boy. We’ve hardly seen each other over the past week since he’s been out of town so much. Happy to have him home. 😛
Do you have any goals you would like to accomplish before the end of the year?
