Girl in the Fog

I took some much needed time away from the blog this fall to refocus my energies on work and some other things and now am back for 2015 feeling re energized and ready to say hello again.
I’m really excited about the year ahead and all of its possibilities both personal and professional.

I’ve given myself a few goals for the year ahead and a few challenges to promote peace and balance in my life. I’ve realized over the last few months that I tend to focus on everyone but myself, which makes me and others in my life unhappy too, despite my efforts otherwise. So my main goal this year is to make myself a priority. I put together a few…

A yoga challenge!
My challenge for myself is 30-days of yoga classes or 30 minutes of stretching (on trainer days).
Yoga is something I love but I never seem to make time for it. It calms my crazy spinning mind and always makes me feel like I can rule the world when I’m done with the class. I see a trainer a few times a week and he make me strong, but I’m definitely missing some balance with my workouts.

In the hopes of starting a new habit that I can’t stop, I joined a new fancy pants gym down the street from my house that has a few yoga classes a day. I’m already enjoying the classes and loving how I’m feeling after. Maybe I’ll even do some hot yoga, which makes me nervous, gulp.

Creative Head space
When I get home from work I usually crash out on my couch with my phone and computer. Not how I imagine myself spending my time in my ideal world, although its so easy to do. Being a creative person, I really need time away from work that is spent working on projects to build my skills, not to mention calm my mind and use my hands. My goal is to spend a night or two a week where I shut things off for a few hours and work on projects, such as knitting, painting, crafts, sketching, doodling, etc.

Living with my sweet wonderful boyfriend has made my life so much better, but it has been horrible for my waistline. His diet can sometimes center around cheese, sugar and bread, which are the worst things I can eat. So this year I want to be a lot more conscious about what goes in my body. That it fuels me and helps me get to my goals and the quality is high.
