The Last 13 days of 2013

Can you guys believe we only have 13 days left of this month! Holy crap on a cracker!

I got to tell you, the last 3 months have not been the best for me. School, work, WW, exercise, diet, my health... all of it seems to just be stressing me out! I recently was introduced to a book call The Anatomy of the Spirit by Caroline Myss, which has been helping me reframe some of my thinking. First off, thoughts are POWERFUL and if you think negative thoughts, your body listens and can lead you to feeling ill or low in energy. In contrast, thinking positive thoughts can do wonders for you and your body and we have the power to change our thoughts! I don't know about you guys but this was a bit of an epiphany for me! To know that I have the power to affect my thinking, my body, my health... just makes me feel so much more reassured! I highly recommend this book.

For example, I have been hard on myself feeling like I am not getting everything I need done. I am hard on myself when I skip a workout or forget to track or eat something I maybe shouldn't of. I am even beating myself up during yoga, which is the worst place to judge yourself! So what has that led to? Skipped workouts, eating more food than I should and WAY more cookies, a worsening in my autoimmune symptoms, less patience, and I am sure a lot more stuff... If I am always thinking that I need to be better, how can I or my body feel good???

So, what is next? Well to start, I plan to work on my thoughts and monitoring for positivity! In this book the author discusses how keeping your body active and eating well will make for improved energy within the body, which supports a positive mind. Well, there are 13 days left of this month and I am setting a goal: To exercise (this does not have to be an intense workout every day but could be a walk or stretching/foam rollers), track all of my food, and meditate for 5 minutes EVERY DAY!!! To reward myself I am going to buy another yoga towel as I have two like this and then one that is thinner and I don't like it as much. SO, this gives me something to look forward to!

What will you do with the last 13 days of 2013?

  1. I could use a little mind over body myself. Downloading the audio book from Boise Public Library!
