Stress is something I don't handle well. I have learned a new trick in the past couple of months from my manager. " Do what you can!" For me this has been a huge learning curve. I find it very helpful. She has taught me do a bit each day. Now I had heard this before but for some reason it really hit me. I am finding these two things very helpful.

Lately though I feel so tight. That if someone hit me I would break. I felt as though I was holding everything in my body and it didn't feel good. I knew I had to change something. So I have only done two nights of yoga and what a difference. Why do we forget these things that feel so good for us? Twenty five minutes of relaxation and pulling my body into bliss. Yoga -for me -is all about relaxing. I don't need any pressure or expectations. I just want to stretch into relaxation.

I have also started eating better. We have been eating out way too much in my house and I feel it. I am going to go back to some smoothies and juicing for summer. I also want to get into lots of salads for summer. I was telling my friend Maura that I wanted to start trying recipes from Pinterest . I will post them on here if I like them.

My life will be changing for work again. It will get more stressful. I need to get some steps and systems in place to combat stress. This month is all about that. So talk soon and Chow for now.

Sunny warm nights

What is it about the sun??? I love it!!!! I am sitting outside drinking wine in the sun after work and iI just thought " this is amazing!! " I love this time of year I can get home at 6:30 and still be able to enjoy at least 3 more hours of sun. It makes me feel grateful and happy. I can hear all the bird singing to each other. A fly sat on my arm. I could smell the just burnt grass smell in the air. Life is so good and tonight I love where I am.

The next FOCUS

  In my last post I was telling you that I am really enjoying Kiana Tom's site. I had remembered her before we went on vacation and I wondered what she was doing since her show Flex Appeal. I was wondering if the show was still produced so I could do some of the workouts. Since I decided to do only workouts I enjoy. What I did find is her website and she is doing "Fitmom" workouts now. They are streamed live on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Then can be watched later as well. She has great advise for moms. This is the link to her site.

  This morning I was thinking about my new goal. Last month my focus was on one thing. COFFEE!! I was able to get myself back to tea after 6 years. I love it. I feel better and I don't feel like I am controlled by a beverage

   "The Power of Less" book by Leo Babauta taught me one life changing skill last month. Focus on one thing only.That one thing is your focus and all your energy goes into that. That helped me so much. So this month my one thing...Do Fitmom workouts three times a week. No more than that. If something else happens like a walk great. But the workouts will happen. So I am two in. When I get to twelve I am going to buy myself a new workout shirt. I'll keep you posted.
