My only resolution this year was to dance more. Perhaps that has served as a metaphor just to put myself out there more and enjoy my actions rather than succumbing to that judgmental nuisance who resides in the back of my mind. Anyway I did dance a bit this week.
This week I went to my first Friday Night Yoga Club of the season. It was a packed house at a studio I have never been to with two amazing instructors leading the party and the musician I had come to see (he was the big reason I chose this event for this night) playing JOKES in between his sitar riffs. It was fun to move and just be. I could have been all self-conscientious about not being able to gracefully get into crow because my body is still not in top form form the back/hip/knee stuff from September. I could have been living with negativity since before I got hurt I had just returned to rocking my unassisted handstand push-up. Nah – it was fun to just fall into my body and enjoy how I could move that night.
The day before I had just seen my chiropractor after a run. Her and I are working to get my body strong and aligned to the point where I can plan some training and events without uncertainty if my pain will be chronic.
I stuck to our food planning consistently the past two weeks (including a CARB FEST on Saturday while out with friends and being tricked by my body preparing for my cycle – I had a Chipotle burrito and two coffee drinks). This week’s food plan is over-the-top as my husband and I plan a nice week celebrating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and our anniversary (that we intentionally tie together – much gratitude this week, much celebration with food and action).
I recently joined the Black Girls Run group here in Denver and plan to make it to their training runs. I also plan to head to the weekly Irish Snug (Thurs night) training runs. I believe both groups have runs on my running days (T, R, S, and U). This weekend the Black Girls Run group is also having a non-running gathering to kick off the year. I can’t wait to meet these ladies – I think I saw some of this group at the Skirt Chaser 5K last year, they were AWESOME!
Here is to a great week for everyone – living with intention and enjoying this life. Tomorrow I will post some video I shot after my Friday yoga class. Let’s talk meditation and calming down crazy monkey minds!
