Slippin’

I have got to get back in the gym! When I last left you all i was in the beginning of my fitness journey and starting to fall in love with a lifestyle that included exercise.

I remained an active follower of this new lifestyle until about 4 months ago when I took on a large project that was incredibly rewarding, but also made me lose sight on fitness.

Now here I am.  I have made it to the gym 4 times in the last two months.  Now, in my defense I did have a strange medical problem surface in October, but that does not fully justify my negligence.

Between job stress, attempting to start my own business, and trying to remain mentally healthy I let my body take a back seat.  I also have been dealing with loss of appetite the last two months so when it would be time to go to the gym I just have no energy. Life certainly has not been a crystal stair y’all.

I wanted to return to writing, because it is something that not only brings me enjoyment, it brings clarity.  Clarity, is what I think I have been missing all of these months in my absence.  I did not know how to maintain that feeling with out putting pen to page, or in this case, finger to keyboard.

Writing and fitness.  Need to remember to keep these in my mantra.  Otherwise, I will grind for money that I will not be able to enjoy.

need to let go of the past and stop trying to live for the hypothetical future…

Powered through a full 20 minutes of yoga this morning. I had some trouble keeping my mind clear. I kept thinking abt the past, a few events that had a negative effect on me in the last year. I need to learn to be more present. I think the key will be to challenge myself to live in the present even when I’m not doing yoga. I need to fully commit to the change which means that I have to engage in the philosophies even when I am not doing the poses. That will be the key to getting some more peace and hopefully relinquishing some of this mental baggage BS. I will hopefully gain more flexibility because of the decrease in day to day stress.
