The last few months have been challenging, navigating a new city and a new job. Now that 2015 has arrived I feel ready to begin anew in my project. I will be announcing exciting news soon. I also plan on doing an event/raffle and raising money for a non profit who really needs funds. I am going to raffle off a prize that I feel people would love to win.
For the beginning of 2015 I am going to focus on fitness and not be a slave to the scale, yet still helping charities and others along my journey. I have so many fitness goals and of course a fitness bucket list I wish to tackle. The idea of this project and blog is to help myself and help others in the process. I have been successful so far but that was just practice, it is on now. I am so ready to be the best version of myself.
Happy Sunday. I am in the Holiday spirit, my town home apartment is a work in progress but feeling more like home. I am getting adjusted to my new place of living. San Francisco is an amazing place to be and I choose to embrace it with both arms.
I have exciting news for this project, which I will be announcing a day or two before the clock strikes midnight on New Years Eve
In the meantime I am out for now. Have a wonderful rest of your weekend. Love and Light to all.
Here is a poem I wrote when I began my yoga practice a few years ago. Happy Weekend to all. xo
NAMASTE’ Coming from me, a poet and former ballet dancer, yoga combines the cerebral aspects of my brain with the physical reality of my body; stanzas gesturing in motion. As I transition from asana to asana, my mind poses that age old question; am I one with the universe? The answer is always a definite yes. I feel as if I am the salt of the earth below my toes, the clouds hovering above my head. I realize not only am I one with the earth and the universe, I am so with all creatures; and one with my sometimes puzzling psyche. By the time I reach the elusive state of savasana I feel as if I am floating above my body. I finally return back to earth in prayer pose to recite that final namaste, in that belated moment of clarity I am reminded of the gratitude I have for being heaven sent yet earth bound.

Good morning to all and Happy first day of March. I had an off day yesterday, it is that time of the month and I was in a rare crabby mood. Mike my trainer had to reschedule which was fine with me since I was not feeling great to begin with. I skipped my own workout as well. It was raining cats and dogs and did a little wallowing in my woes, something I never do. James my husband thinks it is strange when I am cranky, since my personality is on the opposite spectrum of crankiness. I blame hormones. My day at work was off too, and my friend and co-worker brought me in another kale drink. He even noticed how off I was and I realized once again I need to eat more. I totally blanked out at work, and it was good I got out early. Today is a new day, new weekend and a new Month. I have been going at this since July 2013 and I am so happy and grateful for my results and the support I have in my corner. I am also humbled I can do a little and give back by helping others. With that said, I am human and once in a blue moon I will have off days. Days, not weekend, weeks, or months. I nip the bad mood in the bud and now I am back to my jovial self. Ready to take on the universe once again. The clouds always part revealing the radiance of the saffron wonder above. So, I weighed in and even with my monthly water weight I lost 1 lb and I will take it. Weight is at 173 lbs and I am so close to the 160’s. I feel light and less bloated today. I am going to begin this month by journaling my food, and not skipping meals. I am going to do my 25 burpees a day and make sure I am getting my yoga and cardio in five to six days a week. I work out with my trainer Mike 2 days a week, and I am going to do the first thing on my fitness bucket list. My book drive is underway for kids, and I will write about that more later. This is my plan, and I got this. Happy March, Spring Awakening is here Love and Light Rose
