Got up at 9:30 again.

Breathing + meditation went well

Did Japanese practice, things are getting more challenging and it's fun.

35 minute yoga

Stretching all done

Watched Shia again. Taking a week off definitely re-sensitised me xD

Is it the insomnia again keeping you awake? What do you think is going on there?

 

you are doing so well with your goals. :) thats super awesome. Learning Japanese doesnt seem easy, but it does seem beneficial!

Hey lovely!

Thanks so much for commenting, even though I haven't been around your challenge in the past few days.

I think insomnia is almost always caused by anxiety, and anxiety, well that's my life atm ^_^

Japanese is great! It's not as hard as you'd think (except when you start learning the written form), it's a very rewarding language to learn as a beginner actually.

Week 3 - day 2!

 

tumblr_n5u84og9oN1sqh10eo1_500.gif

 

Got up at 8:30

Did breathing + meditation

Japanese practice on Duolingo + class, it was great to talk to my teacher again!

Body weight circuit. Was super tired and pushed nonetheless, which was really stupid. I barely finished the last round and proceeded to die for the rest of the day.

Short stretching.

No Shia.

Watched Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban in the evening, it made everything better :)

Breathing + meditation was very nice.

Stretching done.

No Shia.

 

Good night!

Souunds like a really stable practise, even if there are some dips when it's not such a good day <3 

 

Thanks!!

I'm really surprised with myself actually. I guess all this self-development stuff I've been doing is working ^_^

Week 3 - Day 5!

Woke up at 7:45. Weee!

Breathing + Meditation was nice, even if my mind was a little restless again.

Japanese practice was hard, but nice.

30 min walk + wanted to do this glute exercise (gotta take good care of those glutes!), ended up doing 20 min of Pilates.

Stretching half done. Will do the rest after my dinner has settled down more.

No Shia.

 

Night!

Week 3 - Day 6!

 

giphy.gif

 

Got up at 9:15. It was great.

Breathing + meditation was also great.

Tough Japanese practice. But it feels nice to get those brain cells working again.

30 min yoga. Totally kicked my butt. It wasn't even strenuous yoga, no sweat, but it was... some powerful stuff. If you practice yin yoga or Qi Gong, you'll know what I mean.

Stretching done.

Still no Shia... Gotta try again tomorrow morning.

 

Off to watch some Charmed. It's still awesome! Night.

Week 3 - Day 7!

 

giphy.gif

 

Woke up at 8:30.

Breathing + guided meditation.

Reviewed previous stuff in Japanese.

20 min yoga + cleaned the bathroom and kitchen sink, if anything, those 10 minutes scrubbing the whole shower definitely count as exercise.

Will stretch soon.

Watched Shia. Was great! Maybe I should watch it once a week or so.

 

Night!

Week 4 - Day 1!

 

Here's some beautiful relaxing piano music ❤️

 

Got up at 9:00... I actually first woke up at 7:45, meditated in bed, then decided to just lie back for a bit... when I woke up and saw 9:00, I had a good laugh at myself, so it's all good :D

Breathing + Meditation as mentioned.

Japanese learning still going on.

5 min random dance warm-up + 35 min beginner ballet barre

Stretching after this.

No Shia.

 

Night!

Week 4 - Day 2!

Woke up at 8:00.

Breathing + Short meditation

Japanese practice was good.

35 min beginner ballet barre + lots of walking with a backpack

No stretching

No Shia.

I was traveling, so I didn't plan on doing anything in particular, but I was able to do quite a bit nonetheless. Looks like these are turning into habits?

I'm visiting family for a week, so the real test starts now.

Challenge over! Weee!

 

I actually finished in total laziness xD

Since last Thursday, I did one day of yoga, one day of stretching and two days of meditation.

I kept up with my Japanese learning every day, so at least one habit seems to really stick.

 

Overall, my energy levels have gone up, I feel the need to move everyday now, and I feel confident that I can keep it up!

Looks like the goal of creating momentum and getting me out of my rut has been achieved! yay!

 

For next challenge, I want to tackle eating, so that'll be interesting ^_^
