Since I last blogged I have started back running and my ankle is feeling tons better...still a little funky at time but nonetheless I am crushing my early morning workouts. Yoga is still amazing and provides me with much more than a good workout. Our flow last night was geared more toward relaxation and was right on with my needs this week. Yoga offers me a time to clear my head and exist in the moment. It doesn't matter if I am at class or practice at home..it has given me a new outlook on my body and life in general. Because yoga is a must...every day.
I feel like so many times I get asked about loosing weight, what am I doing, what do I eat, the list goes on and on.. which for all of this I am extremely thankful. I truly want to spread my love for fitness for all to hear. It is so hard to not get hung up on that "magic" number that you want to weigh on the scale...I often have to remind myself that while I am on this journey. A healthy lifestyle is SOO much more than that. It is not just about a number. It is about living a healthy lifestyle...one that I am proud of and want my son to grow up with. He deserves more, and I deserve more. Our bodies are an amazing thing and take so much abuse whether it be from bad habits, or lack of exercise. It is never to late to start..you just have to make that one simple step. Try not to think about the number of pounds you want to use..its one choice at a time, one day at a time, one meal at a time. My point in sharing this is that you need to love yourself for you..not a stereotype..if you are not happy with something you have to power to change it. That is why I choose happiness, a healthy lifestyle, and strong over skinny. I an totally trusting my body on this journey and where it takes me. I still find myself looking in the mirror and taking a second look...thinking "Who is this girl?" followed by "I'm killin' it" lol...there may be a flex break thrown in there every now and then hah!
With our farewell to summer bring on pumpkin spice errr thing!!! This basic girl is ready for it all (in moderation of course). I'm going to have to remind myself in a few weeks to spare myself from the pumpkin pie quest bars...they are pretty terrible!!!!
Don't forget to set goals and hold yourself accountable...after all you are your biggest supporter!!!!
