I implemented my “finish a project before the day starts” agenda today by working on my Management Continuum in bed first thing. I worked on it for 2 hours last night in the guest room (= coziest room in the house and new location) and then finished it in another 1.5 hours this morning. Feels gooooood!
After 4 hours hunch over an Excel spreadsheet, I NEEDED yoga. Yoga is the perfect example of an exercise I do because I like the way it makes me feel (verses any kind of obligation). Also in the feel category: running, walking, hiking, swimming and the stepmill (for the sweat!) Other exercises may not feel good during, but they you almost always feel good after.
I did a new YogaDownload today: Dave Farmer’s Sun Salutations. LOVED it. Well, actually, at first I didn’t like his style. Too much talking and explaining! But I realized that while he was talking we were holding the poses for a long time, which tired me out more than usual. Then we did a super fast flow right in the middle, which I loved because I really felt the burn. it was one of the most challenging classes I’ve done because of the duration and pace of the poses. I’m going to try his 60 minute class soon. I know he’s also got a bunch of free podcasts, but when I checked them out they were really just him teaching an in-person class and it was hard to hear. I like for the instructor to be talking to ME!
I couldn’t wait to have this bowl when I finished! Nut butter and all 😉
