It's February 2nd. Are you still the first one in the door at yoga? Zumba? Dance? The gym? Pilates?
If you've fallen off the wagon, no need to worry - you can always jump back on. January is full of high expectations, new ideas and creativity. February should be full of reflection and integration of what worked.
I finished The Clean Program in the third week of January. I am not going to lie to you, it was hard! By the end of the cleanse, I was dreaming in sourdough and cheddar. But it was an interesting process, one that I would gladly repeat (maybe this summer?). I have noticed how I feel after each meal now that I am eating "off cleanse." I love bread and I am eating it, but have limited my intake. Sugar is also no longer high on my list. I have been doing a lot of research on healthy sugar-free desserts and yummy & healthy meals that satisfy my cravings, feed myself & the hubby, as well as provide a lot of nutrition. We are going to be back in full force eating more veggies next week & I cannot wait!!
I also finished my 30 day yoga challenge. I really enjoyed being on my mat more often!!! I realized it isn't a stretch (no pun intended) for me to be on my mat two to three times a week. I am excited to take heed in this new schedule and plan regular yoga classes to attend. Perhaps I can meet friends at yoga & also have a social aspect! It helps me keep in touch with friends, while also encouraging me to actually go.
With what I have learned, I am excited to start this month with a gusto and implement what works best.
This month I have also: taken a grant writing course, hired a LAWYER, pierced my nose, got a pink feather in my hair, found the national seashore, had my cousins over for a visit, redecorated our home, taught a few benefit classes, taught my first few "rock your asana" workshops, taught a girls empowerment workshop to middle school girls and gone on some wonderful dates with hubby!!
What has your January looked like? How has your 2012 started??
*Please remember that I am still taking questions for my up coming newbie yoga article!*
Get out there - do yoga & make life sparkle!!
