It’s going to be OK

Yesterday was the very last Saturday class of my yoga teacher training. Just a few Thursdays to go and I (along with my classmates) will be┬ácertified! Mary, who taught us yesterday, is the main meditation teacher of the program. Mary had us all check in and listen to our heart at the beginning of class. […]


A hot mess

Do you ever feel like your life is a hot mess? Disorganized? Out of routine? Lately that’s how I feel. At home, at work, all aspects of my life. I strive on routine. And my life has been anything but. I am trying to embrace the disorganized, the fly by the day goings on, the […]


Yup, it was a challenging week

Well, what a week … I knew this past week would pose some challenges in the caloric intake department with food and booze and also with my regular exercise routine. What I didn’t count on was getting sick … AGAIN. Tuesday morning when I woke up I was exhausted. And I slept decently. I felt […]


Yawn … so sleepy

I eat fairly healthy and exercise regularly. I drink lots of water. But I feel tried most of the time. I don’t sleep well. I fall asleep just fine. Usually I zonk out on the couch while watching TV. But I wake up during the night. Sometimes just once or twice. Sometimes 5-6 times a […]


Long weekend for me

As I have posted lately that lots of changes are going on in my life right now, especially at work. And frankly, I am having a hard time dealing with them. I am finding myself more emotional than normal, exhausted, deflated … Last Monday I decided it would be a good idea for me to […]


Can’t sleep?

I have a lot of trouble sleeping. I usually have no problem falling asleep. But staying asleep, well, that’s different. One of my yoga teachers Vickie has told class many times that Legs-Up-The-Wall is a great pose to try when you are having trouble sleeping. But you gotta either drag yourself out of bed or […]


Feeling good, feeling healthy

Yesterday was my first day back toward a healthy lifestyle. I am getting back into my regular exercise routine along with much better food choices. I was a little shocked when I stepped on the scale and saw the weight gain in my four weeks off the healthy lifestyle wagon. I have felt so tired […]


Longing for regular, healthy routine

So the Go Fit Girl! October Monthly Challenge has been really tough for me. (Click here to take you to the Facebook event.) I am having a hard time for a variety of reasons: birthday; Oakland A’s playoff games; many dinners eating out; travel; Charlotte; work conference where vendors and law firms wine and dine. […]


Having an unhealthy good time

Please note: This post was meant to go up last night. But I was having some technical difficulties getting my photos. So you get it this morning. I used to be a very unhealthy person. Now I consider myself fairly healthy. The past couple of weeks I have ditched the healthy lifestyle because of travel, […]


Sometimes you just need a break

I had every intention of going to the gym tonight. I packed my gym bag last night. My gym buddy texted me today telling me that she wouldn’t be joining me for class tonight. I still planned on going on my own. I was going to run an errand before class started. But once I […]
