I was conflicted. I am in South Louisiana. My state flooded last weekend…well, the southern part anyway. So, while I am doing what I can – financially and practically, I feel unbelievably grateful because we didn’t sustain any damage personally. Our neighborhood, yes; us, no. So, while my life doesn’t have the incredible inconveniences that come with natural disasters (this IS Louisiana, don’t forget; I have spent too many nights and days to count that we were “out” of electricity. No air conditioning in South Louisiana after a hurricane is vomit-provoking)
Anyway, I guess what I am saying is, I almost feel guilty taking time in my day for my job that I love. But I am. So, here goes…
The Yoga Retreat (21 Days) will be out in September. Today on Beachbody on Demand, we had a sneak peek. I never really check out the sneak peeks, but I was intrigued by this one because I have always been interested in yoga and have never been able to successfully complete one single “lesson” or “practice” as I’m now told. So.Today I did! It was amazing. The guy who teaches it is very cool, not the kind of guy I was expecting at all. He seems pretty Southern California, laid back, very knowledgeable and encouraging. I started the Core Practice and complete it! I couldn’t believe it! The moves were doable, somewhat challenging, and let me know I was working. What I really liked was that he encouraged proper breathing and said that breathing IS the practice. There was someone modifying and I didn’t have to look at that dude at all. I am really excited for this to come out and I will definitely be getting it.
I am doing 22 Minute Hard Corp beginning on September 6 and I know I can incorporate the 21-Day Yoga Retreat into my day. The Core sneak peek was just about 3o minutes and was really relaxing and centering. Let me put it this way: as soon as I finished my 30 minutes, I immediately clicked to do this review! And writing reviews is something I never do.
And on that note – reviews – that is changing! I am going to start another FB page – one devoted to my health coaching practice and Beachbody coaching. I am 48 and badass. I’m going to start acting like it. I realize more and more that I have a lot to offer and I intend to do just that. No one gets through this life unscathed and when we can grow and share, I think that’s what it’s all about, right? The idea for the new page came to me from my 16 year old daughter a couple of weeks ago. I liked the idea when she told me. Then, this evening, I kept pulling pair after pair of yoga/running pants out of the dryer and with each pull, I remembered things about each pair – where I got them, how long they have lasted, do people really appreciate the craftsmanship of Lululemon athletic wear? So, I just thought it seemed completely natural that I start embracing my badassness & just start sharing. I might even help someone! 🙂
Alright, time to go watch the triathlon on the Olympics! Peace out.
