Week 13

Week 13

14 week ago I posted the picture to the left. I looked in the mirror and didn’t recognize myself. I had just got home from vacation and in a matter of weeks I had put on another 5lbs tipping the scale to 163. After seeing the doctor and finding out I had diabetes, high cholesterol and high triglycerides, I knew I needed to change my life.

I have reached my goal of 146. I have lost 17lbs and feel so much better. I worked hard and have seen the fruit of that. I have been thinking this week about what the future holds for me, and have decided I don’t want to quit. I really would like to see the 130’s again. So I am going to try and get to 139. That is 7lbs and doesn’t seem to daunting right now.

I get my blood testing done this week so look forward to seeing those results. We had the flu going around the house this week so it made for some binge eating around here paired with no appetite at times. I realize thay I cant give up on goals and although a brief hiccup is normal, I have to realize I have an illness and cant just eat whatever I want.

Thanks everyone that followed along and supported me during this journey! You all helped me reach this goal by holding me accountable here. Much love!

Beach Yoga

Beach Yoga

Are you ready to start your day with a rejuvenating yoga practice? Imagine the serene beauty of the beach at sunrise, the gentle waves crashing against the shore, and the warm glow of the sun as it rises above the horizon. This is the perfect setting for your yoga practice, and the benefits are truly remarkable.

First and foremost, practicing Beach Yoga at sunrise, allows you to connect with nature in a deeply profound way. As you move through your poses, you can feel the sand beneath your feet and the fresh ocean breeze on your skin. This connection to the natural elements can help to ground and center you, creating a sense of calm and tranquility that will stay with you throughout the day.

In addition to the grounding benefits, doing Beach Yoga also provides an opportunity to soak up some much-needed Vitamin D. The early morning sun is a rich source of Vitamin D, which is essential for a healthy immune system and strong bones. So while you’re flowing through your sun salutations, you’re also nourishing your body with this vital nutrient.

Practicing Beach Yoga also offers a unique combination of physical challenge and mental relaxation. The uneven surface of the sand provides an extra element of resistance, helping to strengthen and tone your muscles. At the same time, the rhythmic sound of the waves and the beauty of the surroundings can help to quiet the mind and reduce stress. It’s the perfect balance of effort and ease.

And let’s not forget about the incredible beauty of the sunrise itself. There’s something truly awe-inspiring about watching the sun come up over the ocean, painting the sky in vibrant hues of pink, orange, and gold. This natural spectacle can elevate your yoga practice to a whole new level, filling you with a sense of wonder and gratitude.

Whether you’re a seasoned yogi or just starting your journey, practicing Beach Yoga is an experience not to be missed. So grab your mat, head to the beach, and let the magic of the sunrise guide you through a truly transformative practice. You’ll leave feeling refreshed, energized, and connected to both yourself and the world around you.
