Good day wizards. As you may be aware, the school year is coming to and end. The winter exams are upon us and it’s time for everyone to put a little more effort into their homework. Along with the exams, holiday season is upon us. Some of us celebrate Christmas, some of us celebrate Chocolate Frog Day and/or many more holidays. They are all valid. 

Either way, some changes have been made to the scheduling for some students as the classes weren’t as successful as anticipated (maybe). You still have time to figure out what works for you, wizards, as it is not the last year of school yet!

 

Here’s my personal schedule for this semester:

 

 

Defense Against the Dark Arts

Lifting went well in the past semester, I will keep the formula of 8 lifting sessions in the month. The goal is to get the Back Squat to 5 x 95lbs; and the Romanian Deadlift to 10 x 85lbs

 

Transfiguration

It has been more difficult to get my yoga into my schedule for the past semester, which is sad. But I’m still aiming for 12 sessions in the month because I truly believe I can bring my practice back up. Let’s do it. Headstand, soon we shall meet again. 

 

Divination

An easier goal that won’t stress me out and make me sad, as I have an incredibly busy schedule. Pick a tarot card everyday and write down the meaning of it. Send love everyday in a short meditation (about 5 minutes) using rose quartz crystals.

 

Potions

Working at the Three Broomsticks has proven to increase my alcohol consumption and I am looking to bring it down a notch. I will only allow myself one day a week where I will have more than two butterbeers. (Usually Sunday nights, but that might change with my schedule)

It is very good to be back, ya'll. I haven't been disciplined or consistent in a while. My sadness has had its up and downs but I am looking forward to this new challenge to build back confidence through discipline. I hope you are all doing well.

*CLASS DISMISSED*

 

What a whirlwind of a weekend. Sunday was spent with friends, having vegan tacos and local beer and then watching the open mic at the local bar and having gin sodas. It was good. Tiring, but good. 

 

Tonight (Tuesday, November 28th) I'm signed up for a Yin Yoga class and am very much looking forward to it. The soreness from my workout on Saturday is finally gone. :applouse:

Sounds like an awesome weekend, and this looks like a fabulous challenge (I have a HP bias). 

 

HP bias? I like you already! :) It was a good weekend and I was proud to not over indulge! Thank you for the good vibes.

The session of Yin Yoga really opened up my back and shoulders. I haven't followed a full yoga class in a while and even had trouble breathing all the way through my diaphragm, there was always a blockage in my shoulder area. Since then, I really could feel a difference when I stretched throughout my waitressing shift. So thankful for this class. 

 

There was even an invitation to chug down some butterbeers and go karaoke, but I powered through and bought groceries at the 24h magical market. I was very tired after my shift anyway so It's not like I feel like I was missing out!

 

November 30th

 

The day is not over but today I'm aiming to go to the gym for a lifting session. I'm hitting the hamstrings and the core tonight, so there will be some romanian deadlifts. For now, I'm over-caffeinating in the Great Hall. Some assignments are due for tonight and I have to rush a little so I will sign out! I will update once I get home at the end of my day. Love and light to all of you Druids!

Workout was decent, but I guess my muscles were still tense from the lifting session Saturday and I slightly pulled a muscle in the glutes area so I took it easy and did lots of stretches and upper body instead.

Where has time gone? It's a whirlwind let me tell ya! I went to another beautiful Yin Yoga class last night and let me tell you, it was everything I needed and didn't know I needed. Based on the sign of water, a very fluid flow but with beautiful heart openers. My body feels whole today, slightly sore, but I feel amazing. Our meditation and Savasana brought my mood up and I feel invincible. 

 

Last Sunday was also another night out. There was... way more drinks than one should drink. But I also used many water spells to stay hydrated so waking up the day after wasn't so bad. It was a great night spent with good friends surrounded by good music. I'm proud of myself for never having more than one drink at work this week. :) 

 

I was supposed to go lift in the morning but... I couldn't fall asleep and slept through my alarm. T_T If I don't end up going out dancing tonight, I will do a kettlebell workout at home!

My practice today consisted of this beautiful flow by Yoga With Adriene: Heart Chakra Yoga ; it really helped change my mood this morning as the matters of the heart have disappointed me once more. I guess Love Filters don't exist to heal the wounds don't they?  But I am fine. I followed the practice with a 7 mins meditation. I held my rose quarts crystal close to my heart for boosted self-love. <3

 

Have a beautiful day my Druids.
