MAIN GOAL : be a yogi (union of body, mind and breath) to keep my zenitude with my loved ones

 

I have fallen off the NF wagon for a few years. And I miss it, I really helped me a few years back. So, I’m running behind the train trying to catch it up. I used to be in the adventurers, but this time around, let’s be a druid.

 

I’ve been cranky as of late, losing my patience and temper too often with my kids and my boyfriend. I don’t like the person I’m becoming, and I want to change that.

Regain my peace of mind, build my shape back on, be more mindful and present and enjoy life more.

I’ve been meaning to add daily yoga since forever, because I feel this is exactly what I need. So here goes!

 

 

SHAPE UP

 

I want to carve a daily yoga routine in my morning. Grounded mommy = happy mommy, and happy mommy = happy loved ones. And weather is beautiful, so I want to run again, aiming at 5k overtime.

 

-          30 min Yoga Revolution with Adrienne every morning (6/6)

-          Yoga class each Tuesday night (1/1)

-          Run 30 min 2 times a week with the kids or alone (Monday and Wednesday, or weekend if it rains) (2/2)

 

 

EATING

 

I have been skipping breakfast for too long. I only drink a coffee and I know it’s not enough for me. Eventually I want to focus on a paleo breakfast, but let’s start simple and just eat something for starters. But I give myself a few good options

-          Eat breakfast every day (7/7)

o   Frittata

o   Eggs with sweet potato rostis and avocado

o   Smoothie bowl with chia pudding

o   Overnight oats

 

 

SLEEPING: sleep 7h, 5 days a week, gradually moving towards 8h30 over next challenges

 

-          Wake a 5h30 (5/5)

-          To bed at 10h30 pm (5/5)

 

 

SPIRITUALITY

 

-          5 min meditation each morning on weekdays (5/5)

-          Journaling : 3 gratitude logs/happy memories before bed (7/7)

 

HOME

 

-          Pick up living room (7/7)

 

 

CYSTIC FIBROSIS

 

These are things I never do and should, so lets get them into my daily life

-          Sinus rinse daily (7/7)

-          Physiotherapy (1x set of 10 + offing) (7/7)

 

 

FUN (bonus)

 

-          Finish knitting winter rye shawl

-          Start knitting in brioche

-          Read yoga sutras of patanjali

-          D&D 2 times on Thursdays with the guys

 

 

So… this seems like a lot, but at the same time not, since they are all sort of related. And I tried to keep tasks simple enough. Waking at 5h30 will give me enough time for yoga and breakfast. I’ll add the sinus rinse and physio at the same time as my other treatments I already do.

 

Morning routine will look like this:

 

-          Wake at 5h30

-          YOGA do spine stretches and yoga 30 min

-          MEDITATE 5 min

-          CF : pumps, sinus rince, inhalotherapy, physiotherapy

-          BREAKFAST & make lunches

-          Get dressed

-          Out the door at 7h

 

And Evening routine will be

-          Pick up the kids and go out for a run while my BF is cooking dinner

-          pick up living room

-          Wash face / teeth / shower

-          Do what’s left from my challenge list if I lacked time in the morning

-          Knit / read

-          Journal

-          Bed at 10h30

Super excited to read about your progress! I've been thinking of adding yoga to my routine as well :) I'm hoping that reading about your progress will motivate me to do the same. I want to be a good mommy with more patience than I currently have.

So ... week 1 and 2 didn't go too well. I didn't very little yoga, almost no meditation. As usual, i put too much on my plate each challenge, and i have to tone it down to achieve it. 

 

BUT !!! i did really well on getting to wake up earlier. I didn't to 5h30, but i managed to get up before 6 most days, 5h45 even. So i'm slowly getting there. I ate breakfast more often than usual, and i felt the difference in those days, energy wise.

 

What i am most proud of, is that I did sinus rince ans physio daily! If i just keep that habit from this challenge i'll be super happy. It sorta helps that i was down with a cold to kick the habit up. Can't wait for the aftermath of this cold to be over to finally be able to adjuste my meds for asthma and my frequency of antibiotics and such, since it's irritating my lungs like hell and i cough way more than usual. Very anoying.

 

So overall, I feel that i am improving. Lets kick it up for week 3 now ! 

 

oh, and at work they have a new program where you have 250$ a year for fitness related fee (gym memberchip, electronic fitness and such). So i've been looking at fitness watches/bands for a couple days and decided i'll get the fitbit Charge 2 ! I already have a fitbit one that i did out of my drawers this week, but it anoys me that i have to change it places and always afraid to forget it and wash it with my clothes. So having a band will be much better. Also, being able to meditate with it's widget; receive calls notifications; track sleep and all the rest will help track everything.
