KiwiChicks return to Zen

Recommended Posts

I'm back to a new challenge! It's been a while since I have popped into the Druids to have a cup of tea but I'm back as I need to Return to my happy place!

My little girl is now nine months old and I'm slowly getting the hang of motherhood but I need to spend a little time looking after myself too. So here I am.

Goals:

1) meditate 3 x week
2) yoga/stretch 3 x week
3) walk 30 mins 5 x week
4) Complete my writing course I am doing in November.  Each day I have homework so 7 x week.  If I take a little longer thats OK I just really want to complete it rather than rush it. 

My overall aim is to improve my mental health and loosen up my tight hips which are still bothering me.
Mid challenge I will be moving (again!) so not to freak out about packing and moving etc.

And go!

What is online therapy?  

 

I love all of your goals.  Meditation, yoga, and walking are three of my favorite things!  

 

Good luck!  :frog:

Quick update

Im going to change my last goal from doing my online counseling homework to finishing a writing course I am doing in November.

 

Week 1

Monday - Travel day, lots of jiggling a 10kg baby in a front pack at airport.  Ouch shoulders.

 

Tuesday - Walking, did two walks one with baby in front pack the other with her in pram.  Total about 1 hour.

 

Wednesday - I had some 'me' time while everyone was sleeping in the AM so made myself some tea and did 40 mins yoga while listening to accuradio spa channel.  Gosh my mind was distracted, need to get onto meditating.  Also the cat kept wanting cuddles.

Walking about 40 mins.

Started working on my writing course - I am a few days behind so need to catch up.

(Can someone tell me how not to get giant pictures?)

 

Week 1 Summary

Meditate 0/3

Yoga 1/3

Walk 2/5

Writing course 1/7

Ah moving, nice and stressful. Looks like you have some pretty reasonable goals though. Good luck this challenge!

Yes - we are still finalizing our plans but we could move as soon as next week back to Mexico, then back to USA for xmas.  Will see.  I should order some packing boxes.

 

None months! Good heavens! Good to see you still challenging yourself. Gave a good six weeks!

Thanks! I will try to finish this challenge really I will :)

Thanks.  Online therapy is just having an online councilor to help me with my mental issues rather than going to see one, as we don't sit still in one place long.

Thanks - I hate moving, Hope all is well with you too.

 

Extra aim today - comment on others challenges!

Oh, yes!  I've seen this and have been very interested.  Is it expensive?

What?  We like giant pictures of cats. :D

 

Seriously though, usually I edit the photo beforehand - load it in MS Paint and just re-size it.  Typically I make a duplicate of the photo and work on the copy, so if I mess it up, I have the original to go back to.

Super mega quick update!

 

Downloaded my old hypnotherapy and meditation apps, also did some of my active meditation of colouring in pictures.  mmmmmm.

Had migraine on saturday - still recovering.  This is a challenge (and general productivity!) killer.  

 

Mr Kiwi and I spontaneously decided to change our plans and move to mexico IN ONE WEEK.  That means we need to pack up our apartment, relocate our stuff and take as much as we can on our flight down.  Trying to stay positive - but I still feel rotten and baby is sick too and I hate moving.  

 

So challenge might not happen much this week (when I need it most though right?) 

fingers crossed.  if there is one thing I will try to keep up it is my meditation.  See you soon Mexico!
