Sunday held a bit of time out, and a bit more planning and prep for the big day!
I have started noticing a welcome change in my body… Here’s where the consistency will pay up. In the past whenever I’ve started to see results, I’ve fallen off the wagon. Not this time Laveena, not this time.. bring on the summer bod!
Other than that, not much to report, other than being a bundle of nerves…
I hope you’re smashing your goals!
A big day yesterday preparing for my potential work opportunity! Also a small win today, succeeding at a yoga flow that got the better of me last time around… it was definitely still hard-going, but I made it to the end!
I hope you smashed your goals today!
Yesterday was one of those days that you know you’ve been planning for, and it all starts becoming real! It started small, with a potential work opportunity coming my way, and ended with a plan of action to tackle everything I need to do next to make it happen!
Here’s to digging deep, and hard work paying off!
I hope you smashed your goals today,
The most notable thing about yesterday was how grateful I felt… For EVERYTHING.
Grateful for my partner, and how far we’ve come together.
Grateful for colleagues I can laugh with during the grind.
Grateful for the painful things in life which have made me who I am.
I hope you’re snashing your goals today,
This morning as I try to write, while being mauled by a furry cuddle monster, I had to pause to reflect on what was the 30th day of the challenge, and a third of the way to the end of this challenge.
There have been unforeseen challenges to overcome, criticisms from others, criticisms from myself, and definitely lessons learned.
Yesterday found out a bit more information about the challenges coming my way, but instead of throwing my hands in the air, giving up, and settling into a life of bitterness, resentment, and compromise at the expense of my dreams, I strapped myself in and got stuck into figuring out how I was going to make it work.
I may feel like I work hard now, and that the road up until this point has been no exception, but strap yourself in Laveena, that sweat just laid the foundation for what is to come.
I hope you’re smashing your goals today!
I definitely slept the sleep of the dead the night before, let me tell you… followed by a restorative yoga flow to ease my achy body from my cycle ride the day before!
It was a beautiful sunny day outside yesterday, and the outdoors were screaming at me to go for a walk in the sun, but work called louder and before I knew it, it was time to head home instead for a well deserved furball cuddle, and time to relax with my partner.
I’ve found that it’s what I love the most about this challenge, getting the hard stuff done first, then consistently getting my “reward time” at the end of the day, and relaxing with my little family knowing that I’ve given it my all! I used to feel soo guilty coming home and having to lose time with my partner because I still had things to do, but no more! It makes the 3 am starts worthwhile!
I hope you’re smashing your goals today,
For months now, I’ve been saying that as soon as it starts to warm up that I’ll cycle to work (around a 20km round trip) on the days where I don’t have to work at my night job later on… And well… Its now warmer…
So yesterday was the first ride in for the summer, and as expected it was a little hard going and slower than I was, once upon a time when I cycled everywhere!
It was a nice way to start the day though, I had forgotten how refreshing it is to start work fresh out of the shower after a cycle ride through the city! An added bonus on top of the fitness, and speeding up my journey to my “summer bod” (I am definitely aiming to keep it longer than summer!).
The ride home was not so nice… I was tender from the ride in, and was riding directly against the wind. Brutal. There were a couple points were I found myself questioning my life decisions (and on a side note, I personally think if you don’t ever do this you’re not pushing yourself hard enough hahaha).
At one point, I was soo sore and knackered, that when a car got caught behind me at a narrow part of a road and had to wait, I found myself laughing a little like a mad woman. I literally could not pedal faster, I was feeling as tender as it comes from sitting on a bike seat for the first time in months, and I just had to laugh at myself.
A win for commitment yesterday!
