Back to the grind

I was off for 11 days over the holidays, it was nice. Sleeping in, cooking, not doing a whole lot, having lunches with friends and a little shopping. But this past week it was back to the grind, 10 hour days, I did Yoga 2 nights. Friday was busy too. Saturday I felt like I had run a marathon (and I have run one back in the day) I was exhausted. So I slept in, ate breakfast at lunch time, took a nap then did my weekly marketing and came home and got ready to go out for D’s mom 94th (yes) birthday dinner.

Food was excellent at the little Italian place we went to in Orange County.  It was a bit of a drive, but closer to her and his brother. I had lobster ravioli, I think it was the best I have ever had.  Today I am going to try and get a bit more motivated. I think I will go and finish clearing my garden plot at the community garden.  I need to pull out the remains of my pumpkin and eggplant. The bell peppers are still giving fruit so I will leave them. They are being collected for the food bank.

Tomorrow is the start of another week.

I meant to write this post on the 1st, but things got busy and then I went back to work, and then, well here I am.

My yoga teacher said instead of beating yourself up about all the resolutions you didn’t do for 2011, is to look at what you did accomplish.  So I will at some point.  The biggest thing I wanted to do was lose 30 pounds, and I didn’t, and it’s hard not to beat myself up about that.

This year:

Not to go to lunch more than once during the week.

Not to buy anthing I don’t really need.

Move more, yoga, walking, etc.

Wear your pedometer so you know if you are moving more!

Lose 30 pounds.

Finish my second year of Yoga Teacher Training.

Start teaching 2 yoga classes a month.

Sounds doable right?
