My last blog entry my relationship had just ended. In the 11 weeks since... a lot of yoga, some travel, a fun online class (another 2 to come), a very happy cat that I'm home more often, reconnecting with old friends and making new friends, I dropped and shattered my phone, a (nearly) sober September, time to focus gain clarity, and a trip on the horizon...
My weight hasn't changed, if anything it has gone up... I've had a few occasions where I've just given into anything I wanted. Going to yoga almost every day, I need to learn to plan more constant healthy snacks (though I will not lie, I do love the ice cream and cookies I often turned to... last week I wanted cheese). Still though, I've been receiving comments that it looks like I have lost weight so the composition of my body must be shifting? All I know is that I feel good in my skin... and some of my clothes are fitting funny. I bought a pair of 'vegan' leather pants that the sales girls helping me suggested I go down a size:
I feel very sucked in! At work I bumped against a metal cabinet and was afraid that my pants would POP! No. All I ended up with is a massive bruise.
I love my (near) daily yoga. I love the moving meditation, I love the body discipline. I love surrendering to instructions, to moving with the group. I love falling out of a posture and laughing, but getting back into it. I love the hour or so of nothing else mattering except exactly what is going on in that room, and even that doesn't really matter. I love yoga.
In the past 11 weeks I've also developed a focus and drive like I haven't had for a while... I have many excuses as to why but there is no reason to focus on that. I'm applying to go back to school for an education degree in the fall and I would like to teach in Spanish, I'm not fluent so I'm taking advantage of not teaching at the university right now and my other job being flexible to take language classes... and where better to go than Spanish speaking countries? In two weeks I'm off to Mexico for 2 weeks of class, and one week of visiting friends. I have a job interview (the first of potentially many) by phone on Tuesday morning, if that goes well I definitely won't extend my trip but I might take an extra week of Spanish while there. If that job works out, it's a totally different trajectory... and it's odd to contemplate two different options at once, but I definitely need to keep my options open. I know it will all work out and that these options will become more clear in a little bit of time.
Life is amazing... ansd it's only October.
Keep living it the best you can!!!
