Had crap sleep last night- about 4 hours, due to small things screaming and flailing all over me in the middle of the night. We moved tiniest into a big girl bed and we are experiencing an adjustment period. Still, I woke up chipper and feeling awesome. I finished off a 14 hour fast after setting the stove on fire. My stoneware broke in the oven last night and I forgot to clean up the pot roast droppings before putting in bacon this morning. My poor family awoke to smoke, fire alarms and colorful exclamations followed by blasts of freezing cold air as I tried to air things out. But then there was bacon, so everyone got over it. Practiced a little yoga this morning, got laundry going, catered to the littles, and then dead lifted. 2 sets of 12 at 120ish lbs (because that's all we have in the house), followed by the awesome legs workout. I haven't just done LHT in a while. It's been mostly yoga and running with a little HIIT thrown in. I have noticed a difference. I feel like my legs and butt are playing catch up to the rest of my body as far as awesomeness goes. All my handstand work in yoga is whipping my back, shoulders, arms and abs into shape, lower belly is coming along, though it still needs work. My thighs and butt have always been trouble spots, so I'm paying them special attention for a while. They are very strong, and I deeply appreciate the work that they do, but I'd like to pretty them up a bit.
I am still reeling with this switch of motivation that has flipped in my head. With the plans for yoga certification, and knowing the next training sessions don't start til January, I am working to keep the mojo flowing and work on whatever else I can to prepare in the meantime. The plans to be a yoga teacher are one part of the dream in my head. It will be an intricate part of my becoming a well-rounded wellness coach. It that spirit, I started a new blog (a girl can't have too many blogs!): Centered Evolution
I've started in a very emotional/spiritual direction as that's where I have been living the past few days, but I hope to round in nutrition, exercise and plant medicine as well. I have a long-time friend who, along with his wife, is making a very decent living off of their blog. He's offered to teach me the ins and outs of making a blog truly profitable, so I'm hoping that will go somewhere as well. If it doesn't, at least I will have touched a few lives.
